Pre-Ceremony Celebrating: Veronika & Bryan
You may recognize this couple from my prior engagement shoots with them (Part I, Part II and Part III). Veronika & Bryan’s initial engagement session was one of my first ever shoots, and remains to be one of my favorites from over the past year. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and completely natural in front of the camera, so you can imagine how ecstatic I was when they asked me to be a second shooter at their wedding.
The couple’s DIY craftiness for their wedding was ah. stound. ing. Almost everything was handmade with love—the paper goods, delicious drinks, Goccoed goodies—they even thrifted vintage furniture and props to give the venue the vibe they were looking for. Bryan constructed the entire bar and the arch they stood under during their ceremony. Veronika sewed her heart out and hand-crafted everything from doily table runners to cake stands. Even the strands of lights for the reception were hung by the groom with the help of friends and family.
The entire wedding was chock full of eye candy—the bridesmaids dresses from Anthropologie were especially jaw-dropping. The venue, Colonial Dames, was the perfect backdrop for their wedding, as it is decorated with period antiques, vintage paintings and historical artifacts.
