Michelle & RobertWestwood Country Club Wedding

Two minutes after leaving my studio, I arrived at Michelle’s home. Her parents are essentially my neighbors and live just around the corner. As I arrived, their renaissance-inspired brick home looked perfectly manicured. Inside, Michelle was patiently waiting with her mom. They were eager to get started. We chatted for a few minutes as I photographed Michelle’s beautiful sheath dress, shoes, and rings. I made sure to include as much blue-and-white porcelain as possible to match her wedding design. Before long, it was time to get prepared for her Westwood Country Club wedding.

Michelle slipped into her wedding dress with the help of her mother. On went the jewelry and soon it was time for the first look. Family hid away inside while I prepared Michelle. Robert had just arrived and I positioned him in the side garden. He nervously rocked his weight from foot to foot while I went back to signal Michelle.

Nervous anxiety seems to take over on the morning of a wedding. This only clears after the first look, whenever that happens to be. Michelle & Robert chose to share their first look in the garden. Immediately following, you could feel anxiety give way to excitement. Worry give way to love. It also became apparent why Michelle loves Robert so much. He uses a subtle, dry humor to keep her constantly laughing, as you will see below.

With the first look and wedding ceremony at St. Christopher’s Church over, we headed to the country club for some portraits and a beautiful summer reception. Below are just a few highlights from Michelle & Robert’s Westwood Country Club wedding photos. I hope you enjoy.

Cameron & WesKirtland Country Club Wedding Photography

Two weeks prior, I sat in the club room with Cameron’s mother and an amazing team of wedding professionals. Over the course of two hours, we reviewed Cameron & Wes’ Kirtland Country Club wedding photography in detail. Every aspect of the day was discussed. Ceremony location, tent position, beer brand, and the steel drum player were covered in detail. I walked away from the meeting feeling buoyant. I could already tell their Bahamian-themed wedding would be truly special.

I stepped into the ladies parlor on the morning of the wedding. Cam was positioned in a pool of light by the window. A hair and make-up team was dutifully preparing Cam and a friend. The room was positively buzzing with friends and family. No one was rushing about. Instead, the energy was composed of anticipation. I was a bit early, so I decided to concentrate on some details. Before long, it was time kick things off. Cam took a moment to read a note from Wes before slipping into her lace sheath dress. Surrounded by friends, Cam and her mother made sure every detail was perfect.

But let’s rewind to the begin before we begin anew. Cam and Wes met while attending the Island School in the Bahamas. From there, the continued dating as their lives took them all over. Their Bahamian-themed wedding was simply a reflection of their life together. Kalik beer floated in steel boats at cocktail hour, while a steel drum player strummed in the background. The bridesmaids wore dresses reminiscent of tropical flowers. Tables we decorated in white and ocean blue.

It’s not an island wedding without a party, which continued long into the night under a full moon. Below are just a few highlights from Cam & Wes’ Kirtland Country Club wedding photography and fun moments from throughout the day.

Hannah & RyanThe Club at Hillbrook Wedding Photos

I was never supposed to be here. For me to capture Hannah & Ryan’s Club at Hillbrook wedding photos, something had to go horribly wrong. The cause that brought about my presence nearly involved life and death. Hannah & Ryan originally hired another photographer for their wedding. The other photographer happened to be my friend. Then, inexplicably, my friend suffered an as-yet unexplained coronary meltdown.

For two hours, my friend was dead. Thankfully, she survived, but she would need months of rehabilitation. Aside from the unexplained coronary event and nearly miraculous survival, other magic was afoot. People from across the region band together to help our friend, which included helping to save her business and ensuring no couple went without a photographer. This is where we circle back to Hannah & Ryan.

I volunteered to cover Hannah & Ryan’s wedding. After chatting with them, they graciously accepted. I say graciously for a reason. Hannah & Ryan are gracious to the core. They immediately understood this bizarre situation and cared most for our injured friend. On their wedding day, Hannah & Ryan poured all of their energy into ensuring family and friends had the best day possible. For example, they took a special moment at the wedding reception to very publicly thank their parents.

While the wedding was supposed to center around Hannah & Ryan, I think it’s plain to see that they felt differently. For Hannah & Ryan, this day was all about being near cherished family and friends. I hope you enjoy the highlight from Hannah & Ryan’s Club at Hillbrook wedding photos below, mostly captured on film.

PS – My friend has made a full recovery that borders on a scientific miracle.

Update

Hannah & Ryan’s wedding turned out so perfectly, that it has now been published by The Knot. Have a Look at their English Garden Wedding feature and learn more about their wedding planning process. Again, a huge thanks to the entire team involved.
