As photographers, we love it when we see our clients add their own personality to a wedding. Brooke and Jesse did just that!
A few weeks prior to the wedding, we received a call from Brooke asking if she and Jesse could “use” our studio for a while. Now we often get that question from photographers; but from a bride? We were confused but agreed. Brooke and Jesse arrived with several large rolls of fabric. They told us of their plans to drape the ballroom in fabric, but they didn’t have anywhere large enough to roll out the long lengths required to drape the room. On the day of the wedding, we were blown away at how amazing the room looked. By creatively using the fabric draping combined with paper lanterns, Brooke and her planner had transformed the ballroom in a way we never expected.
Brooke and Jesse were married on the beach at the Courtyard by Marriott in Carolina Beach beneath bamboo arbor. Rather than a pre-ceremony Reveal, they scheduled an extended cocktail hour in order to have a lot of time for creative portraits after the reception. As guest mingled, we had the opportunity to create beautiful portraits both on the beach and in the carnival pavilion nearby. We loved shooting in the pavilion with the carousel lights in the background. What an awesome way to end the night!
