Grace & Quinn celebrated their marriage (and New Year's Eve!) at Antebellum Oaks. I've never shot at this venue until now, and I absolutely loved it. The venue was lavishly decorated with New Year's Eve decorations, including some pretty awesome party hats! There were so many awesome locations around this venue for portraits and the weather was absolutely perfect. It was an awesome way to ring in the new year!
Quinn & Grace got married at Emmaus Parish, a catholic church about 5 minutes from the venue. Luckily they still had their Christmas decorations up, and the poinsettias really added to the beauty of the church.
After the ceremony, everyone gathered at Antebellum Oaks to celebrate and eat some AMAZING food. They had so many options, so naturally I had to try one of everything. ;)
If you guys only knew how freaking long it took to get these balloons to stay straight! I was so determined to get this picture, and after maybe 30 tries and a little extra help, I finally got it! Isn't this setup amazing?! Props to the couple for thinking of this awesome idea.
Quinn and Grace had an amazing first dance together. They were expert dancers!Then, out of nowhere, a recording of Quinn singing their first dance song to Grace came on over the speakers and Grace couldn't handle the cuteness! She was so surprised, and between all the laughter and hugs, they still managed to finish their first dance together. I've never had a groom record himself singing, so kudos to Quinn for doing that!
