This wedding season I’ve had the pleasure of 2nd shooting with one of my dear friends, Ali McLaughlin, at the beautiful Salamander Resort. The fun part about 2nd shooting is that sometimes it allows me the opportunity to discover new venues that I have never photographed at before. The Salamander Resort was one of those wedding venues, & I hope to be able to work there again in the near future. Christina & Dinos had the most beautiful wedding celebration, & I can’t wait to share some of my favorite images with you.
Upon arrival, I was greeted with such warmth from Christina. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bride so happy on her wedding day, lol. Ali & I went straight into capturing the bridal details, & I absolutely fell in love when Christina put on her wedding dress. The lace on the bodice, the beautiful simplicity of the gown, & the unique layered skirt was everything that made me want to get married again (to the same guy of course-ha!). Also did I mention just how beautiful Christina’s long hair was? Christina was your perfect model of a classic bride, & she was stunning!
My main priority was to focus on capturing Dinos & his groomsmen. I have to say that these are probably some of my favorite groomsmen wedding prep shots. It was just a small hotel room, but the window light was perfect. The groomsmen had plenty of details to photograph, & it was such a fun group of guys to work with. Part of that may be due to the fact that most of the groomsmen were kids, but again they made my job easy & so much fun 🙂 I normally don’t get to work with the groomsmen too much on a wedding day, so it was nice to switch gears a little bit when it came to my creativity.
The Salamander Resort provides a beautiful ceremony space inside the resort itself. The chandeliers were amazing & added so much elegance to the ceremony space. The reception space was no different. The Salamander Resort offers so much class & elegance both inside and outside of it’s doors. The gardens also made for a beautiful portrait area. Every corner there is something unique & beautiful to incorporate & I would highly recommend the Salamander Resort to host your special day. It certainly does not disappoint.
I have to say that Christina & Dinos had one of the most entertaining wedding receptions I have ever attended. Their wedding celebration was full of family traditions, a whole lot of live music, & dancing. It was amazing to watch two families come together as one, & to witness the love & support that they had for this beautiful couple. It was such a pleasure to be a part of their wedding day, while being able to do what I love- capturing couples in love. Christina & Dinos, thank you so much for allowing Ali & I to capture your special day!
