When I say my jaw hit the floor walking around this venue I literally mean my mouth was wide open in awe of how gorgeous this place was. It was like being in a giant castle that had a unique design in each room. I have photographed hotel weddings plenty of times but I knew for this wedding I would need to double my lighting gear in order to capture all of the amazingness. I've never seen so much marble and cool ceilings in my life. Lauren and Shannon had both their ceremony and reception inside, it's rare we don't ever go outside for at least a few portraits but we did every single thing in this magical place. I knew their formals alone would be to die for, their e-session (photos here) was bomb.com and I had joked about them being models, turns out they were! The way they interact with each other flows easily because they are so fun-loving. This has definitely been one of my favorite venues of 2016!
