This past Saturday I had the honor of photographing Lisa and Patrick’s wedding at Belmont Country Club. I had such a great time during their recent Meadowlark Botanical Gardens engagement session I was certain their wedding day would be not only beautiful but super fun! Lisa has this contagious smile and incredibly sweet. Her groom, Patrick – I knew from the moment I met him that he was incredibly sweet – and he can dress! I loved their tuxes for this wedding. They truly are a match – they complete each other and their love for each other, their families and friends is truly evident when you are around them!
Belmont Country Club manor house is gorgeous, the property makes it perfect for both indoor and outdoor photography options! Started the day off in their lovely Bridal Suite! and look at these shoes! Lisa was so excited telling me about her Christian Louboutin (Keopomp Velours heels) the shoes for her wedding day and they were stunning and so unique!
I loved that she wanted to highlight not only her dress but the mother’s gowns and bridesmaids dresses. The perfect location – that window in the bridal suite! Lisa decided to have a ceremony and then a reception party dress!
Sharing and gift giving with her sweet bridesmaids who were amazing and so helpful to us throughout the day!
Love this photo of Lisa, stunning bride and ready to put on those gorgeous shoes!
The handsome groom in this awesome tux, I loved the black and navy combination from The Black Tux
They decided on a first look which we were able to give them before the rain started.
We moved inside for the portraits due to the weather but at Belmont, the inside is gorgeous and has so many options.
These are some of my favorite moments during portraits, when the couple forgets I’m there, they are in their own space and world just the two of them, truly allowing me to photograph their time together. I love this photo taken peeking in from the doorway.
We got the wedding party outside between sprinkles of rain for some photos!
And of course, every bride with a long veil needs the veil photo!
Looked beautiful inside for their wedding ceremony!
Presenting both parents with roses. Loved this.
The happy couple!
How gorgeous is this cake! Cakes by Jimin created true art! And those flowers on the top – they are sugar!
Let the party begin!!
I love uplights, so changes the room dimensions. When I saw that the uplight behind the cake was this color orange – I asked them to trust me and let me capture them in front of it to create this image I ADORE! Love a silhouette!
Lisa and Patrick, your day was amazing, fun and perfect! Thank you for trusting me to photograph it, and meet your wonderful friends and family!!
