Jenna & Sam – Grain Exchange Wedding Photographer

Jan 20, 2011 | Weddings | 0 comments

It had been years since we were a part of a New Year’s Eve wedding (and we had not one, but TWO this year!)  Whenever two joyous occasions collide like a wedding and New Year’s Eve, it is sure to be a fancy, fun affair.  Having Sara and her crew there from Golden Chic put the icing on the cake of this perfect wedding.

Sam and Jenna had just such a party.  With a regal setting like the Grain Exchange, the mood was set for a wedding for the ages.  The North Coast Orchestra put on a great show that had everyone doing some serious dancing right through the stroke of midnight, when streamers were released, floating down to everyone from above. They mayhem of an entire wedding reception rejoicing with the new year was something to behold and something even greater to photograph.

We were also very fortunate to have unseasonably warm weather which made it possible to take Jenna, Sam and the wedding party outside at night in December in Wisconsin.  We weren’t expecting that when anticipating this wedding, but it gave us great opportunities to make some very special imagery.

From the quiet moments of the ceremony to the raucous ongoings of the reception, this wedding had it all.
