I knew from the moment I met Syd and Scott that their wedding would be an absolute blast to photograph. For them, it was all about being around their closest friends and family members and spending the day together celebrating. We were in touch many times during the planning process for their wedding and all of their efforts paid off in a spectacularly fun stress-free day.
Syd and Scott chose the Cornelius Pass Roadhouse for their wedding celebration. They held their wedding ceremony in the octagonal barn. While I have photographed at the Cornelius Pass Roadhouse a handful of times in the past, for Syd and Scott’s wedding I wanted to try a different approach to capturing their wedding inside the historical barn. I strategically placed a couple of flashes up into the rafters of the barn that I was able to control remotely. This gave me a lot of creative freedom in how I documented their ceremony and reception. I love taking calculated risks like these at weddings (and challenging myself creatively) – especially when the results pay off. I was able to create more dynamic lighting than is otherwise present inside the barn.
Following the couple exchanging their vows and guests mingling during cocktail hour, everyone went into a tented area for dinner and toasts. We then proceeded back to the octagonal barn for the remainder of the evening for cake cutting and dancing. Eric with All Wright Music kept the dance floor active throughout the evening while Syd, Scott, and their entire crew busted out some serious dance moves. Keith, with White Night Weddings, captured the entire day on video. Special thanks to Nate with Nate Smith Photography for assisting me throughout the day and coordinating and executing our epic lighting idea.
Congratulations to Syd & Scott! Looking forward to meeting up later this week at the studio when we setup the projector to view all their wedding images together for the very first time.
