The Grand Wedding Series: Vol 1 Ashley Brockinton Photography

Without doubt, this wedding meant more to me in so many ways than any other has in all my years.  Dozens of incredibly passionate and dedicated wedding professionals came together and gave everything to make this Grand Wedding more than I could have ever possibly imagined. There are literally thousands and thousands of images from the wedding events Sara & Nick won, and I can't possibly post them all, but I want to share with you as much as possible.  The volumes will be done by photographer, beginning with our dear overly talented detial photographer Ashley & Sam Brockinton. So bare with me through what could quite possibly be the longest real wedding series I've ever done. I think you'll enjoy it though. And with that, the wedding of Sara & Nick at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center:

Calligraphy for the table numbers & escort card display, Calligraphy by Jennifer

Wedding Cake by Kakes by Karen
This was the scene stealer at the wedding. And it was devoured.  Karen never ceases to amaze us with her cake artistry.  This cake proves that when you allow your creative professionals to be creative, you get nothing short of exquisite in return.

The cocktail lounge
 I love that the Art Center has 3 rooms that open to each other.  It makes for such great transitional spaces.  I also love that there is actually a baby grand available.  How often do you get that?
The ceremony set for the steps of the Art Center.
 We closed the entire block off to traffic for the wedding.  Most of the wedding guests stayed just 2 blocks away at Hotel Indigo and the rest we valet parked with Frey Valet.
The processional aisle runner by Sarah Hearts
 When I approached Sarah about the runners,  I told her I wanted two.  The first for the processional, and the second for the recessional.  I'll show you that one in the next post!
The Escort Card table
This had to be the most difficult shot for Ashley.  Guests entered this room and found their calligraphied escort card on one of the frosted glass candle holders.  The walls were draped in black and the perimeter of the room was lined with dozens of vases of floating candles.

Wedding Invitation
All the flowers by Floral Artisty
The flowers.  I can't say enough about the flowers.  Jana and Beth had their work cut out for them with the ideas I had in my head.  As they always have done, they exceeded everyone's expectations.
