Ben and Victoria.
Where do I even begin. Something tells me that anyone who has had the pleasure of becoming friends with these two knows where I am coming from. Let me start from the beginning.
Victoria is one of the most organized people I’ve ever met. She had the plan worked out for the day a solid year before it happened. This gal is on it.
The day of the wedding, I walked into an empty bridal suite. Where was everyone? The moms informed me that these two were living their best lives. They were out all night with their best friends celebrating. As they should have been. And that pretty much sums up my experience. Ben and Victoria’s wedding day and wedding week was one for the books!
Everyone was present. Victoria was filled with joy. Ben was filled with joy (and whiskey… jk).
Their friends were there to surround and support them in every and any way.
One thing that stood out to me was when we started to get behind schedule, the first look location was moved. Victoria’s bridesmaids took her aside and talked this through with her to make sure she would have no regrets. Everyone should be surrounded by friends like these on your wedding day.
I didn’t want the day to end and I don’t think anyone else did either. All that planning, all that attention to detail…. from my perspective, it couldn’t have been more perfect.
They continued the party downtown at The Basement where my second shoot Johnathan often photographs nightlife so we were able to document some of the continued shenanigans!
Victoria & Ben – I am so SO happy for you. What an honor to be a part of this wonderful event.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Fail!
