We’ve done video here at The 4 Eleven before but this was my first time photographing a wedding there. I knew I would love it but didn’t realize what a dream it actual would be. The venue is stunning and the floral was breathtaking but really what made this wedding a joy was the sweet couple. They were all ready to be married and were celebrating their rehearsal dinner when Tyler’s dad started not to feel well. He ended up at the hospital suffering from a blood clot. It was so serious that he was admitted and was not able to attend the wedding the next day. Of course, the groom was upset and emotional and it threw the day into a whole new set of plans. The one thing that is consistent with all weddings is that something usually doesn’t go to plan or happen the way you think it will. This was a huge something and this couple handled it with grace and a smile on their faces. All of the vendors stepped up and made sure the day went off beautifully. Dad was terribly missed but he has amazing photos and the wedding film to look back on and relive. He is better now and we are so happy we were there to capture it all, not just for this sweet couple, but for Dad who couldn’t be there but desperately wanted to.
It really is such an honor to be able to do what we do and we never take it lightly. Shooting weddings is not about how many awesome picture you can get for your portfolio and social media. It’s about creating long-lasting memories that tell a story for all the world to see. I think it is some of our best work because of how much this couple means to us and how we were all there for them on their most important day. They’ll always be special to us because of the connection we have and we hope we get to keep that connection for years to come!
We cannot wait to shoot more wedding at this beautiful venue. We have a few more coming up this year and we know they will rock. But our first together here will always be my favorite. Much love you two and rock on! – Allison
