Any wedding vendor –from hair stylists to makeup artists to wedding planners– will tell you that the energy in a bridal suite in the hours before a wedding are a total predictor of the kind of day that’s ahead. From the second I stepped into Elise’s suite, I was greeted by a dozen smiling faces. The mimosas were flowing, the music was pumping, and the vibe was just right. And I knew, without a doubt, that Elise and Reid were in for an amazing Canfield Casino wedding day.
From the classic black and white color scheme, to the beautiful florals, to all the pretty details in between, I had such a great time shooting this gorgeous occasion. Two of my favorite moments from this day were Elise’s teary first look with her dad, Jay, and getting to see Reid direct a room full of Elise’s closest friends and family in singing her “Happy Birthday.”
Oh what a day it was! I hope you enjoy reliving it through the photos as much as I enjoyed capturing it!
