Surrounded by their closest friends and family members, Anne & Branden exchanged their wedding vows in Abigail’s Garden at the Abernethy Center. Immediately following the ceremony, guests gathered around the couple for a large group photo. It is always a fun way to kick off the post-ceremony festivities for the evening.
After signing the marriage license and having some time to capture portraits together as newlyweds, Anne & Branden were officially announced into the reception to a thunderous applause. Sharyn Sowell, an incredible silhouette artist, provided some entertainment for the guests. Within minutes, she would meticulously record a guest’s profile onto small black pieces of paper by way of the most unassuming pair of scissors. Paste the silhouette into a hand-held book, write a custom message to the couple, and at the end of the evening, an incredible one-of-a-kind album is created. It was such a treat watching her work and so fun to see everyone’s reactions.
Paradox Productions was the DJ for the evening and they kept the dance floor very active throughout the entire evening. Guests created an exit tunnel for the couple and emphatically waved sparklers in the air as Anne & Branden exited the reception to ride off into the night in a 1947 “Silver Wraith” Rolls Royce Limousine by Best Car in Town.
As always, it was a blast working with Andrea from August Veils throughout the day. Andrea provided Lady in Waiting service for Anne and assisted me during all the formal portraits. Cindy and her team of associates with Encore Events flawlessly coordinated the entire day from start to finish. Leave it to Cindy to not only assemble an incredible team of vendors (as far reaching as a silhouette artist based out of northwestern WA), but to also manage the schedule, details, and everything that needs tending to in order for the couple and their families to enjoy the wedding day stress free.
Congratulations to Anne & Branden! We wanted to surprise you with this early sneak peek preview of your wedding photos. Enjoy!
