The Parkside Resort was the perfect spot for Jessica and Owen’s New Year’s Eve wedding. The dusky sunset as they got ready, the twinkling lights and candles in the atrium during the ceremony, the city and night and the midnight finale saying goodbye to 2014 and hello to their new life together. When we first met with Jess and Owen and found we would be shooting pretty much everything in the dark it presented a new challenge for us. We don’t often get to have couples out in the dark so it was great to stretch our off camera flash muscles and be creative in a different setting. The night photos with sparklers were so perfect for New Year’s and Jess and Owen dressed the part with him in a hand tailored suit and bow tie and her in a stunning gown from White Peony Bridal Boutique that transformed the elegant sequence cocktail dress with sheer ball gown to party frock with the change of a skirt. Her bouquet by Verbena Floral Design full of roses and long ribbons added the soft and pretty to all the sparkle. After the ceremony we headed out into the cold (hovering right around 0) and made everyone stand really still for some night shots. We are so glad everyone braved the cold for us!! The penthouse reception overlooking the city lights with gold balloons, a caricature artist, bubbly, and a big Happy New Year!! Thanks to Jessica and Owen for having us there to capture all the fun.
