Wedding at The US Grant
When E.R. and Melanie planned their wedding at The US Grant, they crafted a beautiful, classy and fun event.
We started the day in the Presidential Suite. The suite has a big living room with lots of windows that make the room really bright with soft light bouncing throughout. It’s a really pretty room to get ready in. After photographing a few details, Melanie put on the dress, shoes, and jewelry with the help of her bridesmaids. It’s always nice having a team to help with those things.
The guys got ready in one of the board rooms in the basement level. The basement has some very unique board rooms and ballrooms, including the Crystal Ballroom which their ceremony would take place in.
When everyone was ready, we set up their first look in one of the lobby level hallways. The couple loved The US Grant for all the unique decor, so they wanted as much as possible included in the photos.
After the first looks, we did some wedding party photos. It was fun including the unique exterior of the hotel as well. I lined up the wedding party on the sidewalk and they took it from there having fun with each other creating some fun moments.
A ceremony in the Crystal Ballroom is always a memorable event. There is a unique beauty about it that is hard to find in other locations. While short, there were very sweet moments during their vow exchange that brought out tears in the room.
Once we got up to the reception room it was time to party. Their friends and family can dance! If the DJ was playing music, they were on that dance floor.
It was a great experience for me getting to be there to capture Melanie and E.R.’s wedding day. They are really fun people surrounded by an equally energetic and fun loving group of friends and family.
