stacey & matt: hall of springs

I’ve been looking forward to blogging this wedding all day so here it is. I can’t begin to describe how happy we are with the images we came home with from Stacey & Matt’s wedding. From the second we walked in that hotel room I knew this Stacey was gonna bring it and she sure did. Stacey was a ball of energy and excitement from the start of the day until late in the evening and Matt was right there along side of it all. I love watching bride and grooms enjoy themselves and that never got old this weekend.

From the moment we photographed their first look in the hotel lobby I knew this was going to be a fun couple to photograph. Now keep in mind it had been raining all morning and early afternoon but when we arrived at the Hall of Springs for portraits the sun peeked out for just for a small window of time and the rain stopped. Let me tell you we sure took advantage of that. We must have had the staff bring out 6-8 sheets of linen to keep the bottom of that dress dry. I pointed the camera at these two and they turned it on like a light switch.

Our favorite Rabbi, Scott Shpeen, performed the Ketubah ceremony. It’s amazing when he walks into a room that is full of commotion and noise he locks it down in like 2 minutes. I see this at every wedding we work with him. I would say he’s probably one of the most professional and well-respected individuals we cross paths with season after season. The ceremony then followed as all of Stacey & Matt’s out of town guests got to see them tie the knot. I think there were maybe 15 local people at this event including us and the other vendors.

Now this is the kind of party I want. City Rhythm had this place jumpin’ and when they didn’t Paul Malo did. Seriously I say this often but it’s true, a bride and groom on the dance floor will guarantee a party. Stacey and Matt danced all night and so did their guests. It’s that simple folks, people gravitate to the bride and groom so if you want a good party then you must be in the center of the floor making it happen. This wedding here, was a good party. As always a thank you to the lovely bride and groom for having us be part of their day and congrats to you, hope Thailand is fun.

Peace, leave love –

Whats that saying? Let your hair down. I love when brides wear their hair down.


I always enjoy a laugh.
