One of the absolute best things about being in the photography business is the relationships we make. This wedding was a very special wedding to us! The lucky groom has been a client of ours before. We actually photographed Michael’s senior portraits several years ago, and even at that time, he and Melissa were dating! This beautiful couple has been together for 10 years, and getting to be present for their big day was a huge honor. You all know how much we love Royal Park Hotel wedding photography, but this one is extra special. Something about all the happiness, laughter, and happy tears made it a joy to be around. It really felt like everyone there was taking in those once-in-a-lifetime moments.
We started our day with this BEAUTIFUL blushing bride and her bridesmaids. Her fitted gown with an open back was the perfect complement to her cathedral veil. After she was done prepping for the day, we got to witness two of the most precious first look moments we’ve ever seen. Between Melissa’s first look with her dad and her first look with Michael, there wasn’t a dry eye around. Melissa and Michael make a seriously beautiful couple! Take a look at some of their portraits below, all taken around the Royal Park Hotel grounds!
Now it’s time to get married! We’ve said this before, and we’ll say it again: the Royal Park Hotel conservatory is one of our all-time favorite wedding ceremony locations. The industrial beaming, the flood of natural light, and the stunning chandelier are the perfect amount of simple elegance that keeps the focus directly on the bride and groom. Their ceremony was sweet and touching. We loved it!
Time to dance the night away! As always, the Royal Park Hotel pulled out all the stops. Our Royal Park Hotel wedding photography is never lacking in elegance, drama, and beauty. These soft pink and white florals were paired with long-stemmed candles and gold accents. Their lounge furniture surrounding the dance floor was the perfect finishing touch to their romantic reception.
A huge congratulations to Michael and Melissa! We wish you two all the happiness in the world.
