Romantic Storytelling, Fine Art Wedding Photographer

Whenever a couple tells me they are having a Beauty and the Beast themed wedding, I get excited.  Belle’s my favorite princess!  Josh & Paige’s wedding transformed Noah’s Event Venue into the castle’s ballroom.  Lanterns, red roses, a backdrop and mirrors decorated the area.  It was a romantic setting and sure to be the perfect wedding day.

Paige couldn’t have looked any prettier with her long curls and headpiece that made her resemble Belle.  Josh even sported a blue coat and black pants just as Beast did.  A single red rose added the perfect touch to his ensemble.

Paige and Josh decided to forgo a first look.  When Paige’s father escorted her down the aisle, Josh had a hard time looking her way and holding back the emotions that were filling him. They started off the ceremony by lighting a candle for each family member that couldn’t be there to celebrate with them. At the end of the ceremony, they shared their first kiss as husband and wife.  As soon as they were done, Josh gave a thumbs up and the biggest smile came across his face.

It was a cloudy and rainy wedding day but the rain held off for pictures.  The quickly darkening sky actually added to the fairytale theme as it presented more romantic lighting and was the best excuse to have the couple cuddling a lot.

When the couple was announced into the reception, the theme of the day continued.  The cake table was beautiful. Belle and Beast imprinted on the top tier and red roses filled the rest of it.  They shared lots of laughs during their cake cutting and went to the dance floor to celebrate their love together.  Paige’s father spun her around the floor during their dance.  Josh gave his mom a fun dip in theirs.  The spirits of everyone around them were joyous and full of love for these two.


Josh and Paige,

What a gorgeous love the two of you share.  Paige, when toasts were happening, Josh kept snuggling into your shoulder and it was just the sweetest thing.  Josh, when she looks into your eyes, everyone can see just how much she cares about you.  Her eyes light up and fill with happiness.  I am so happy for the two of you and excited to see where life takes you.  Thank you for having me be a part of your day and enjoy this little sneak peek into the best day of your lives!

Yours Truly,
