Post by David – We got an email back in July from Asha and Kevin telling us that Jane Himmel of the Palmer House had sent them our way. We love Jane. We knew we’d love them. We were not disappointed. Every chance I had to chat with Asha had me laughing and smiling and we were so excited as their wedding day quickly approached. We also got the chance to get to know Claudia from As You Wish Events who was their wedding planner and who we look forward to hopefully working with again soon. That combined with Daniel Somenelli on flowers, DJ Harsh the gorgeous location at The Murphy for day two and the amazing performances by Redmoon and we had one heck of an amazing two days to cover.
Asha and Kevin’s first night with us was a rehearsal dinner with a 50’s theme. We loved everyone’s outfits.
They also had someone on site making hand rolled cigars! She was amazing!
Asha and Kevin exchanged gifts on the roof.
Day two started at Asha and Kevin’s place. Cathy LOVED their view.
I started with Kevin over at the Palmer House.
A side note. Asha and Kevin had this team from RedMoon with glitter cannons. I decided it might be cool to have them fire the glitter over my head and get the glitter coming down in front of me. While I’m happy with the image below that resulted, I was covered head to tow in red glitter. I’m not even joking when I say that we are STILL finding glitter as it followed me home! I wouldn’t be surprised if we find some when we move some day.
Some of the Redmoon performers with their home made wine bike. This thing was super cool!
And best hair of the night goes to… 😀
Asha and Kevin! Thank you SO MUCH for having us for both amazing days of your wedding. We had an absolutely wonderful time working with you guys and we hope you love your images as much as we loved taking them. I knew when I heard Jane’s name from the Palmer House that we’d be overjoyed to work with you both. Thank you! Thank you!
