Classic + Elegant Van Dusen Mansion Wedding

Oh was it so great to be back photographing at the Van Dusen Mansion! This time with the amazing Carlee and Brian!  I knew based on their engagement session attire was any indication, the wedding was going to be stunning. (Exhibit A: Engagement Session)

Carlee had the most AMAZING dress and surprised her husband after the ceremony with an extra skirt that just added SO much to this beautiful dress! This bride was full of surprises for her groom as she had this amazing set of cards + gifts of their story and the most adorable gifts that correlated! Brian was blown away from every step of the day!

We had the MOST perfect weather for their wedding day. Made a stop across the river for amazing photos of their bridal party! Then back to the amazing Van Dusen for their ceremony with the beautiful trio playing and their sweet friends officiating + reading. It was so beautifully personal!

The coolest part of this venue is the courtyard (where the ceremony was) is such a fun space to host your guests during the reception. These two had a cigar bar, an amazing choice of desserts + cake, their bar + coffee and lastly sparklers for us to do an exit!

It was truly a remarkable day! Carlee + Brian I wish nothing but a million more stories of love + life in your future! Love you dearly!!
