Danielle got ready for the wedding at the vineyard in a well-lit room. Even though there were 11 women in the bridal party, everything ran smoothly and there was plenty of room for everyone to get ready. The bride was thrilled about her hair and makeup as well as how everyone else looked.
Nicole was at the hotel with Corey taking pictures of his preparation for the wedding. It was a challenging learning experience with the lighting. Soon afterward Nicole met up with Corey at the venue for a first look. He was obviously nervous but excited to get closer to the ceremony.
It was fun to see how excited Danielle was about the flowers, the venue, and seeing Corey for the first time. Both Danielle and Corey were overwhelmed with nervous enthusiasm as they walked around the vineyard, and after a few pictures as a couple we met up with the families of the bride and groom. Again, there were some challenges with lighting.
Shortly afterwards we met up with the wedding party which consisted of 22 people! We took as many pictures as we could with the entire wedding party, but this was difficult because there were so many party members. We were running late by the time the guests started to show up, so we finished up by focusing on pictures of the couple.
When the bus of guests arrived, Danielle hid until it was time for the ceremony, which ran long, but the couple was still able to enjoy the majority of their cocktail hour afterwards. It was a fun group which led to a truly enjoyable celebration of only about 100 guests. The venue was rustic and intimate, which is exactly what the couple wanted, and the party was happening all night long.
Danielle and Corey seemed thrilled by their memorable wedding day, and they were a beautiful couple to photograph. I am looking forward to editing the pictures because the bride and groom looked so great together.
Enjoy the photos!!
