Deb + James: Ballroom at the Westside Wedding

June 2014

West Chester Wedding photo

Deb & James Bookman

I have been anticipating this day for almost a full year.  a FULL YEAR.  I first met Deb and James last September when we shot their engagement session at Hibernia Park.  It’s amazing how time flies.  Looking back at the pictures, it feels like yesterday.

Needless to say, I was unbelievably excited to document such a special day.  And special it was!

As a photographer, I quickly fell in love with the details of the day: The groom’s watch, the bride’s jewelry, the gorgeous flower arrangements.  Even the way the sunlight kissed through the windows… I really couldn’t have asked for better conditions.  Most impressive though, is the undeniable love shared between this bride and groom.  The overwhelming sense of joy was palpable.

The day began with a beautiful ceremony at Hutchinson Memorial, continued with a night of dancing and great food at The Ballroom at the Westside, and ended with a sky full of fireworks. Yes, I said FIREWORKS.  And did you see that cake by Michelle Curry?  Wow.

I loved documenting the wide range of emotions.  Tender moments (and maybe a few tears), contrasted with WILD dancing.  There was always something to experience.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed creating them!
