Daniel & Elaina actually met 3 years ago via Snapchat. I loved hearing their story through their own wedding vows at The Secret Garden Wedding Venue by Wedgewood Weddings. The wedding was emotional but full of love. These two made each other laugh and I could tell that they were their best self when with each other.

The day started out with uncertainty, as it rained all weekend! My second shooter and I even left half an hour earlier than planned as their was news of flooding everywhere. But the day turned out absolutely perfect and the rain stopped by the time we got to the venue and the event venue staff was amazing at making sure everything was set up perfectly.

I cannot say enough about this wedding venue as a photographer. It’s almost like the venue space here was meant for the perfect wedding for the Bride and Groom, but also built for the photographer.

Everything was close. So as a photographer, that helped me and my second shooter get plenty of photos for the Bride and Groom. I’ve been to many locations for wedding photography and no one likes having to travel around by a golf cart just to get great photos. And heaven forbid if there isn’t a golf cart available, a bride doesn’t want to be walking far distances in heels. At this venue, the bridal room was perfect and we could have honestly gotten a ton of bridal photos without ever having to leave her room, which is a plus if she wants to keep that tradition of not letting the groom see her.

The bridal room also had a large outdoor area that was still covered for amazing photos and the groom’s room was just down the stairs literally underneath her. I honestly could have probably done this wedding without a second shooter because of how convenient everything was. The wedding and reception were close by steps away as well. It was glorious!
