This wedding was a first for me. And I love this couple for doing what speaks to them! If anyone knows me well, I love all things cemeteries, Dia de los muertos, sugar skulls, Halloween, all of those awesome things. So when I got contacted by Abi and she said they were getting married on Friday the 13th, in October (my favorite month, hello Halloween!) in Oakland Cemetery, in an black and purple dress, I was like STOP IT! These guys did exactly what they wanted, and got married in front of one of the beautiful Mausoleums inside Oakland with just their parents and their two adorable kiddos in attendance. They hosted a super fun party at 5 Seasons Brewery the next day for all their friends to come and party with them. HOW FUN IS THIS GUYS?
Oh what fun this day was!!! I love when couple's choose venues that are a little outside of the box, and just have fun (or as Kadie said all day, you do you!). Kadie and Brandon chose the super cool restaurant of Empire State South to host their reception. The restaurant is situated next to a green outdoor space that is shared by a couple of hotels and offices, so they chose to have the ceremony and dancing there! The weather was super uncertain all day, but cleared up just before all the action!
As you can see, my website is all new! I am so excited about this fresh clean design! My first official blog post is from a STUNNING couple at our favorite Wolf Mountain Vineyards last fall! I apologize for the lack of posting, but I knew that I would be changing my site over! Didn't want to publish these amazing weddings and then have them lost to cyberspace forever! Sad times! But this is not sad times, here are the HAPPY times from Jen & Adam's wedding! Flowers by the always talented La Petite Fleur! Enjoy the images. I will be posting more fabulous events soon!
