Chris & Dave, September 29, 2018, The Century House
Keith and I have been very lucky to work with couples who have a great sense of humor, and Chris and Dave are two people who know how to have fun and a good time as well. This couple is probably the most jovial we’ve met and we just love how they were so present in every moment of their wedding day. You can see the love and happiness pouring out of them in these images. We began our day with the girls getting ready in a conference room at The Century House. Chris was finishing hair and makeup and had all her details out and ready to be photographed. The ladies in her wedding party were so helpful. The guys got dressed up in a hotel room and had a lovely whiskey toast to the Groom before heading out for a First Look. After the couple’s first look, we walked around the trails behind the hotel and got some stunning images. The outdoor ceremony space was adorned with white fabric and crystal chandeliers and we loved taking some photos in there with the wedding party when they were ready as well. The couple were married out in the ceremony tent in front of about 170 guests. Their recessional was probably the best we’ve seen since the two literally danced out of the tent. We all headed up to the restaurant/ballroom area and caught some last moments of golden hour before the couple entered their reception. The reception was amazing and there were so many details. Not only did the couple have Century House and their amazing food, but also had a whiskey/bourbon bar, professional cigar roller and tons of desserts. The crowd danced the Tarantella, which is an Italian tradition in Chris’ family. The couple even made jars of homemade tomato sauce as take home gifts for their guests. What a night these two had. Thanks Chris and Dave for choosing Hitlin Photography and letting us capture your day. We love your smiles and wish you two all the best!
