The Hamilton Manor Wedding
I have never photographed a wedding at The Hamilton Manor, but I am so glad I did! Its an amazing venue and the staff is so nice!
Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself…. Did you ever meet someone and just feel like you definitely should be friends? I totally felt that way about Jenny and Rob. They are so much fun to be around, they’re silly and light-hearted. They seem to really just enjoy life and being in each others company and that rubs off easily on whoever is around them. I was really excited for their wedding after we did their engagement session at Grounds for Sculpture. We were there for hours just walking around, enjoying the night and getting to know each other.
I have always had a love for pin-ups and pretty much jumped for joy when I walked in and saw Jenny with her party, all in perfect pin-up poster make-up and hair. Wait ’til you see their lipstick picture! Jenny was a vision in a vintage nightgown and her soft blue curls. Her birdcage was probably one of my favorite parts and I couldn’t wait for Rob to see her. (Cue the tears, bigger than life smiles)
When Jenny reached out about her upcoming wedding, she mentioned that Rob and her were in a band together and that they had planned on singing their vows. I thought this was such an amazing and unique idea! I’m all about an unplugged ceremony, for obvious reasons, but they actually requested that their guests get out their phones and record this part of the ceremony. It was an amazing idea and their friends and loved ones were all smiles and tears listening to these beautiful hand-written love songs.
The newlyweds and the wedding party danced their way out of the ceremony and celebrated together outside. The Hamilton Manor did an amazing job of putting together the ballroom in a true to Jenny and Rob fashion. It was pretty amazing how perfectly it fit their wedding. And that cake! Can we just talk about that cake!?
Getting married in the Fall? I’d love to hear from you. Lets chat!
