It’s hard to imagine two people having more fun at there wedding than Lauren and Chris did. Everything from the getting ready to the ceremony to the reception all happened at the Palmer House, The Palmer House is such an amazing hotel it’s like stepping back in time to a more elegant and extravagant time, every detail in the hotel is just amazing. It’s the kind of place where I want people to wear a coat and tie when walking through the lobby. The ceremony and reception both took place in the Empire Room, I’ve shot in a few of the Ballrooms at the Palmer House but it was my first time in the Empire Room, it was just stunning. The staff at the Palmer House did an amazing job helping to keep this wedding perfectly on track and fun all day and night. At the reception the Matt Stedman band played I’ve worked with them several times before and they are a key part of one of my all time favorite wedding stories, so it’s always great when I seem them at a wedding, they put on a great show and keep the room rocking. I had some great help at this wedding from Erika as my second shooter and Ben shooting at a portrait station, they did a fantastic job this night.
