Ritz Carlton Wedding in the Fall
October 25, 2014 | Julie and David
With so many fun details to choose from – like the fireworks at their first kiss, the flash mob at the reception, or the temporary tattoos of their cats – this was very much the wedding of super fun, super silly and super in love… Julie and David!
Since they had a beautiful evening ceremony under the stars at the Ritz Carlton, we did a first look and they actually had a sushi cocktail hour before the ceremony (complete with Star Wars chopsticks for the groomsmen!) I loved this set-up because guests could relax and mingle before the ceremony, and then we all went straight to the reception to continue the celebration with a fabulous meal!
The Leonard Brothers partied with us all night – and I couldn’t believe all the little surprises planned for us! First, Julie’s family planned a perfect flash mob, complete with signs and giant cardboard cut-out heads of the couple! The sweets table was stocked with gumball necklaces, chocolate mustaches, and Macarons! And why not have temporary tattoos of their faces and their cats?! I mean – seriously – it was unbelievably awesome!
So I hope you enjoy their wedding in photos as much as we enjoyed photographing it!
