This was absolutely a fantastic day! When Cara’s mom Lisa called me, and gave me some details about how this day was planned, and who the vendors were, I was very excited. What got me excited more was actually meeting Cara and Patrick on their wedding day. Two bright souls who love life. Cara was as laid back as a bride could be, and Patrick had a smile on his face all day. I started shooting prep at Lisa’s house. All of the wedding party was warm and welcoming. We had beautiful weather. I was also thrilled to be working alongside photographer Victor Sizemore, and Coordinator Ginny Adkins, as I knew I was in for a real treat. Megan Kirby from VOCE got Cara’s hair done, while Sarah Shepperson from MAC put the finishing touches on her makeup. Since I was shooting by myself, the transition over to Patrick’s was easy, since he was literally up the street. Once prep was complete, it was time for the first look. Cara’s dress, from Bridal and Formal was striking! Patrick and the groomsmen were also sharp dressed in Geno’s Formal Affair Tuxes.
With the initial excitement just beginning, we moved around downtown to get some more portraits with Cara and Patrick before heading over to Broadway Christian Church for the ceremony. I love BCC, well laid out and well lit for video. Once the ceremony was done, it was time to head to the Marriott Griffin Gate resort to get some reception shots. The room was absolutely beautiful! Crist Creona did a marvelous job with floral arrangements. The cake, made by Linda Mashni was to die for. It was no surprise this would be a great party with Jason Henninger behind the DJ booth.
