Mikael & Jordan Getting Married

The other weekend I had the extreme pleasure of photographing Jordan and Mikael's wedding. I just loved how much attention this couple paid to every detail of the wedding. The details were vintage-inspired, environmentally friendly, and many were hand-crafted by friends.

I knew that this was going to be a fun shoot as soon as I experienced the energy in the hotel room where Jordan was getting ready. There was a last-minute panty run, a wardrobe malfunction that required a bit of alcyhol to soothe the nerves, and a wonderful bond between Jordan and her bridesmaids.

May I present Jordan, Hollywood glamour bride!

Since we did the portrait session before the ceremony, we arranged a meeting place where the bride and groom saw each other for the first time. They were simply beaming.

These two really are just that into each other.

The bridal party was fabulous and up for anything as we roamed the urban streets, attracting attention everywhere we went.

The ceremony was beautiful and moving. Mikael, being a musician, played during the processional. And Jordan's reactions during the ceremony had me clicking away madly as I wanted to capture every emotion. At the end of the ceremony, Jordan and Mikael joyously danced away.

The wedding invitations, which were made from vintage postcards, were on display. The table numbers were hand-made, also fashioned from postcards. The dinner and dessert was catered by Binky of Fuschia restaurant, who infuses many of her dishes with flowers. Delectable!
And then the party really got started!
