We had been so excited for the wedding day of Kayla and Kevin to arrive. We just fell in love with this couple back in the winter of 2013 when we did their Engagement Session (click here to see session). They are seriously the nicest people and their families sure know how to party. We met Kevin and his guys at the Shaker Ridge Country Club where it was very quiet. We did some pics of him getting dressed and he showed off some cuff links handed down through the family. We love little touches like this. Kayla was next door getting ready at the Hilton Garden Inn. We met up with our pals Dan and Jaime from Best Bytes Media and headed to the hotel. Kayla and her girls were getting ready in adjoining rooms. Each girl wore custom bridesmaid tanks and even had a custom mason jar for drinking some celebratory beverages. Kayla was STUNNING when we arrived. She is so photogenic and our camera really loves her. The couple chose a first look at Shaker Ridge Country Club. Being an extremely rainy day, we chose to do the first look indoors at the foot of the grand staircase in the lobby. Ed Shea and his staff from 2 Shea Catering and Shaker Ridge were so very accommodating letting us use the indoor space since the weather had us inside. After the ceremony upstairs in the ballroom, the heavy rain turned into a lighter drizzle and we were able to steal away the Bride and Groom for some of our favorite images of the day along Shaker Ridge’s fabulous tree lined driveway. Guests enjoyed a very lively party made possible by DJ Brian Garreau from Piano Man Productions. From teaching the crowd dances to handing out props, Brian had this crowd going. It was such a fun day and Kayla and Kevin, we want to thank you again for choosing us as your wedding photogs. We know you will have a long, happy marriage, because you two were truly meant for each other!
