A stunning wedding at Maitland Art Center!
OMG everything about this stunning wedding at Maitland Art Center for Kadian and Jeanpierre! I can not get over how beautiful this venue is. I felt like I had stepped into a sanctuary from another country. The Maitland Art center is a real hidden gem! So lets talk about this gorgeous wedding... Kadian was responsible for the DIY of the flowers, which turned out so elegant. When I arrived at the hotel to photograph them while getting ready, Kadian had just dropped off a present for JeanPierre, a handsome watch with a leather wrist wrap. As the girls were getting ready excitement was in the air. I love the hour before the ceremony because there is so much going on and before you know it the ceremony is already about to happen. Fast forward to the ceremony. Yes. WOW. The ceremony site is a bit small but large enough to accompany a small wedding. The gorgeous evening light beaming through the canopy of trees up above was like being in a fairytale! The quaint space held so much emotion and it was simply perfect for intimacy. After the ceremony we had a lot of great spaces for the bridal party portraits and the creative bride and groom portraits. To top it off the full harvest moon was gleaming with so much pride in the night sky. On rare occasions I have the opportunity to make use the the brilliant night scape featuring a big full moon. As we moved on into the reception area it felt like a candlelit medieval story setting. It was outside right over a few walls connected to the ceremony location. There was so much happiness and love contained in the reception area, and tears of joy! The night was ended with an early sparkler exit which was staged before the actual grand exit. FYI brides: Yes you can do this! Stage your sparkler, bubble or exit of your choice, before your actual exit. This prevents guests who leave early from missing out on being apart of your send off. Brilliant idea! I want to wish Kadian and JeanPierre many blessings and a lifetime of love and happiness!
