Commanders Mansion Wedding

Jessica + Sean = Married

If weddings were novels, Jessica and Sean's would be The Great Gatsby. Their wedding was on Hurricane Irene Sunday, and originally the plan was to have the ceremony outside and the reception under a large tent. Mother Nature had other plans, and luckily the inside of their venue was absolutely stunning, which made for an intimate and romantic setting. Their wedding was the epitome of style and class. Even as we were editing, we were constantly fighting the urge to make the entire event black and white. It was truly timeless. We were blessed with fifteen minutes of sunshine and no rain (sunshine! During a hurricane!) right in time to capture their first look and stroll through the beautiful grounds and grape arbors of the Mansion. They personalized the day by incorporating an Armenian Crowning during their ceremony, having a giant screen printed poster as their guest book ("How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..."), having a mini flash dance with their bridal party, serving Armenian desserts alongside their gorgeous cake and sending their guests home with yummy cake pops. (We took two, except I ate both of them. Sorry Matt!) We were so happy to be a part of their wedding, and will always remember it as our night living in one of our favorite novels. Also, a big thanks to fellow photographer friend, Steph Stevens, of Steph Stevens Photo for letting us borrow some extra lighting!
