What a fantastic wedding to end the year on! Its been an amazing year and I am so so grateful to all my amazing clients/friends for allowing me to do what I love to do and provide them with invaluable memories. Kelly and Mike have been wonderful to work with and all their friends and family were so accommodating all day long. We had an amazing day, very uncharacteristic for a December day, it felt more like October. Last year we were under a few feet of snow at new years. Kelly and Mike were so much fun all day, you’ll see very soon.
Lets get on to some photos……..but first the other wedding professionals that made this day amazing:
Venue: Franklin Institute, always a stunning venue!!
Flowers: Flowers by Yuke
Caterer: Frog Commissary, I will make a bold statement here and say that the meal we were served on this night is the BEST meal I’ve had all year. Mushroom risotto with a puff pastry and grilled veggies, nice sirloin steak (I think) for the “meat eaters”. I could go for some right now, it was amazing. Not a “vendor” meal in the slightest. Top Notch.
Band: Jellyroll, these guys are awesome. What a fun band, couldn’t think of a better band on new years!
Videographer: Pete Malone from First Floor Films, Pete is a talented videographer/photographer and one of my dearest friends. Its always fun when we get to work together.
Second Photographer: Misty Dawn Phiel, so much fun to shoot with you again Misty! I am so happy we got to ring the new year in together, thank you for all your great images.
Assistant: Eric Walbridge, my “thankless assistant”. Thank you for coming out and being my light man all night. 🙂
