Vanessa and Jawone married at the Ryan Nicholas Inn

Vanessa and Jawone's wedding at the Ryan Nicholas Inn was amazing!!! We started with capturing the final touches of Vanessa putting on her wedding dress and touching up her hair and makeup in the bridal suite. While Dana captured this, Christopher was shooting the Jawaone and his Groomsmen outside in the overcast daylight getting their fun photographs. We moved Vanessa to the Grand Staircase for some pre-ceremony shot with her bridesmaids. As the time for the wedding drew near, we used our radios to make sure the couple never saw each other despite using the same staircase for the guys a few minutes after Vanessa. The Inn is so detailed and ornate, I just can't get over how beautifully done it is.

As the wedding went on, I found so many amazing angles and reflections that I HAD to capture, it was hard to narrow them down for the blog!

After the wedding exit, we had the introduction of the wedding party as they descended the grand staircase. This was followed directly by the first dance and toasts by the best man, maid of honor and the fathers of Vanessa and Jawone.

We stole the couple away as the hall was transformed into a party so that we could do our formal photography out front. Then it was on to the party....

In the end it was a beautiful and memorable wedding. I look forward to shooting at the Ryan Nicholas Inn again soon. Vanessa and Jawone have a bright future ahead of them...
