Kingsmen Brewing Company Wedding

After a wild year we finished off our 2020 wedding season with a Kingsmen Brewing Company wedding! We met Jess & Steve via FaceTime after they came across our website and wanted to book our Brian Ambrose photography team for their special day! Like most wedding planning their logistics had many twists and turns and changes. Especially since they were planning their special day during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic! We loved Jess’s carefree and easy going spirit and even when they had to change their venue last minute due to capacity restrictions Jess was not phased and just couldn’t wait for her wedding day!

Jess and her excited girl gang greeted us when we arrived at the hotel! Her maid of honor Aly quickly got to work gathering Jess’s details! She was so kind as to interrupt her amazingly generous husband. Aly set Dominique up with some great lighting and a quiet space to work. In their personal hotel room! While Dominique got to work on the detail pictures Brian made his way over to the hotel room with all the guys where Steve was getting ready!

At the hotel room an eager and excited group of 7.5 men (the half being Steve’s adorable five year old son Colton) greeted Brian! Brian captured some detail photos and getting ready candids in the hotel room before heading out to the parking lot where Steve’s most prized possession was waiting for him. His truck! Jess even told us that “if he could marry his truck I think he would.” Lucky for Jess that’s not the case! Haha!

Meanwhile upstairs Dominique was finishing up details and then it was time to get Jess into her stunning wedding gown! Once again with help from MOH Aly Jess was all zipped and buttoned up! Dominique captured some stunning portraits of Jess and some candids of the special moment when Jess opened a gift from her mom. The gift was a bag made from fabric of her and grandmother’s wedding gowns hand stitched by Jess’s mom! Jess fought her tears so she wouldn’t ruin her amazing wedding makeup.

Soon it was time to head over to Hubbard park for the first look, family, and wedding party photos! Luckily the park was not too crowded and we found a pretty stone background for our photos! Being mid-November there was even some Christmas decor in the background! Jess arrived and Colton escorted her to see her groom for the first time! After some hugs, kisses, and laughter it was time for the formal family and wedding party photos! Jess & Steve and all their wedding posse were the most fun and excited group!! Everyone was joking, laughing, and smiling ear to ear the whole time! Steve’s niece and son had an epic performance as flower girl and ring bearer!

Next it was time to head over to Kingsmen Brewing Company where ceremony was about to start. Guests arrived just after the bride and groom were tucked away! The ceremony was absolutely lovely. JP of CT Shelly always does an amazing job! And we just love how she takes every detail into consideration from writing the ceremony notes of a pretty paper and having the best man take a spot in front of the couple for a different photo opportunity! Jess & Steve had the most heartfelt vows. The whole crowd burst out laughing when best man Jim handed a bolt to Steve instead of Jess’s wedding band! After they said I do and sealed it with a kiss! It was back down the aisle and time for our signature group shot!

Cocktail hour took place in the event room and featured great beer brewed in-house, amazing food, wonderful music from DJ, and lots of happiness! Intros, first dance, and parent dances all went swimmingly. Speeches by the best man and MOH were absolutely amazing and hilarious! Jess & Steve cut the cake. Jess tossed her bouquet. Then the music came up and everyone danced, ate cupcakes, and Jess & Steve lived happily ever after!

We were so happy to be a part of this wedding and to be able to have fun with all these amazing people!
