Our wonderful, lovely couple opted to start their wedding day at their gorgeous historic venue (Callanwolde Fine Arts Center) with their first look!
They planned a small and intimate wedding day without a bridal party & opted to to start their day with a first look soon followed by their Couples Creative Portraits.
The First Look at the Grand Staircase
Their first look took place on the iconic grand staircase. We absolutely love the deep rich red carpeting & historic window designs (I would say stained glass – but I don’t believe it’s stained!). After their first look, we proceeded to move around the venue for more portraits.
Callanwolde is such a cool venue with so much history in every corner of the building – it’s a gorgeous place for photos everywhere you look – both inside and outside!
We started with indoor portraits and then moved to the outdoors spaces in front of the venue.
Family Portraits Outside Callanwolde
Once we wrapped up our Creative Couples Portrait time, the family joined us for some quick family portraits just outside the maid doors.
After family portraits, it was time to get ready for the ceremony!
Prior to the ceremony starting, we like to wrap up Couple & Family Portraits early to give us some time in the ceremony & reception spaces to capture details & decor before the majority of the guests arrive.
Hindu Wedding Ceremony
Below are a couple of highlights from this multi cultural Indian wedding ceremony.
A Second First Look
After ceremony, our couple changed into their second set of outfits. As a multi-cultural/ biracial/ interracial wedding, they wanted to do a first look again!
These moments were so precious!
Cake Cut in front of the Grand Staircase
After the first look at the top of the stairs, we went to the bottom of the grand staircase for their cake cutting!
Once the cake cutting was completed, we moved into the ballroom for the reception events!
Historic Ballroom Reception
As the intimate reception was coming to a close, the couple opted to take a few more night time portraits before leaving for the evening.
