Society Room Winter Wedding

It was a beautiful day for a Wedding! This warm winter we are experiencing came in handy for photographing Sarah & Bryan’s Society Room Winter Wedding! With temperatures in the high 50’s & even reaching into the 60’s we had the perfect weather!

We arrived at The Goodwin Hotel to the happiest & most excited bride we have had in a while! Sarah already had her hair done & was happily sharing some laughs with all her favorite ladies! Dominique got to work on some detail photos in the moody, dramatic lighting provided by the amazing suite they were in! Sarah’s adorable niece, could not have been more excited to be a part of her aunt’s special day. She was bopping around the bridal suite and doing her best to help in any way she possibly could! After spending some time with Sarah & the ladies we went over to see how our groom was feeling on this special day!

We came to find that Bryan was equally as excited as Sarah. There were no nerves in the air just pure joy to be marrying their person! Once the gentleman we’re ready, we took them down the hall, to the library, and finally downstairs to capture some portraits of them.

We jumped ahead to get ourselves set up at the Society Room as everyone was getting ready to leave the Goodwin. When we arrived Sarah was not long behind us. She arrived with her girl gang in tow and got herself settled in the bridal suite. We took this time to get some more portraits of the guys outside. Of course – why would we pass up such lovely weather! After the guys decided to pop to a bar next-door (followed by Brian of course) for a pre-ceremony shot – cheers! We truly aspire to document every moment on Wedding Day!

Soon enough the long awaited moment had arrived! Time for Sarah to get into her dress! She took a brief moment to read her card and open her gift from Bryan! A stunning necklace that so perfectly completed her Wedding look! With help from her mom, sister, niece, and best friend she was ready to go!

Guest settled into their seats, and the ceremony music began. An excited and overjoyed Bryan awaited Sarah as her mom escorted down the aisle. They were married!

We led all the family members and Wedding party outside as guests made their way upstairs for cocktail hour. We took all the formal family photos first and then onto the wedding party. Soon everyone had joined cocktail hour and it was time for portraits of the newlyweds, and then they opted to join cocktail hour themselves. Meanwhile, Dominique scooted a head to capture the reception details and set up. Cocktail hour wound down and guests headed downstairs to find their seats.

Sarah and Brian made their grand entrance from the staircase and shared a lovely first dance as husband and wife. After Brian shared a dance with his mother, and everyone took their seats for toasts and blessings. Their speeches brought laughter, tears, and most importantly well-wishes for the new Mr. & Mrs.

As dinner was served, we took the opportunity to utilize the Society Room’s vault for some more portraits of our lovely bride and groom. Of course, the exuberant personality of Sarah‘s niece led her to her own photo shoot as well.

Before we knew it, it was time for Sarah and Bryan to cut the cake! After the dance floor came alive and stayed that way through the night until it was time to say our goodbyes.

What a perfect day for this amazing couple to celebrate their love. We were so happy to have been a part of it and capture all these special moments for them. Congrats to Sarah and Bryan!
