Wedding at The Bushnell Theater

It was a beautiful day for a wedding at the Bushnell Theater! Brian has worked with Chris for numerous events and other Photographic needs throughout both of their careers. We couldn’t be happier that Chris found his person in life! After a lot of careful planning it was time for their special day! We arrived at the Bushnell and Dominique got right to work on their detail photos! Chris and Patrick arrived shortly after with the most excited energy exuding from them! They were so ready for this day!

They got ready together with their matching suits and matching tie and bow tie. Helping each other when each of them needed it. Then it was time for some portraits around the amazing Bushnell! There was no lack of grandeur and stunning places to photograph two happy grooms on their special day! As family started to arrive we made our way into the beautiful Seaverens Room for our posed family photos. After those the rest of the guests stared arriving and it was time for the ceremony to begin!

Chris and Patrick had put a lot of thought into where to have their wedding ceremony. As I mentioned before there is no lack of stunning places throughout the Bushnell so this decision was not an easy task! However they decided on having it in the balcony of Mortenson theater! That way the background for their photos would be the stunning curtain and stage as well as the beautiful accents all around the theater. We were so excited about this decision as we could just envision the stunning photographs we were going to take! We could not wait!

Both grooms made their way down the aisle – Chris with his longtime best friend and Patrick escorted by his mother. Their close friend was the efficient for their ceremony! The ceremony was lovely. It featured heartfelt speeches from Patrick’s sister and Chris’s nephew as well as amazing handwritten vows from each groom. Soon they shared a kiss and they were married!

Guests filed out of the theater and down a floor for cocktail hour to the Great Hall or as some call it the Chihuly room for its wonderful piece by the amazing artist! Chris and Patrick took a moment alone to enjoy their new titles as husband before joining all their guests for cocktail hour! As Brian captured great moments from cocktail hour Dominique made her way downstairs to the main foyer where dinner was to take place! She captured some stunning details of their reception set up. After many laughs, delicious hot d’oeuvres, and yummy signature cocktails, it was time for guests to take their seats for dinner.

After dinner everyone filed into Mortenson theater where none of the guests knew what was coming next! Chris and Patrick surprised everyone when they made their grand entrance from backstage and shared some kind words to thank their guests for celebrating with them. Then a close friend and amazing musician performed a few songs for everyone! Even a song he had written especially for the newly weds based on his knowledge of their relationship through the years.

Then the curtain on stage went up and guests were surprised by an amazing onstage set up for dancing and dessert for the rest of the evening! What a special dessert set up it was too – featuring all their favorite family recipes. They even arranged for a Bushnell expert to bring guests into the Bushnell’s control room where many who have performed have signed the walls through the years! Let us tell you there was definitely no lack of dancing from Chris, Patrick, and all their guests!

What an amazing celebration for a beautiful couple with such an inspirational and kind relationship. It was so much fun to be able to photograph their special day!
