What a gorgeous way to kick off June! This past weekend Stephen and I enjoyed a stunning day at the famous Crescent Hotel (sorry folks, no ghosts captured this time!), photographing Ryan and Holly saying their vows to each other. Holly was radiant and Ryan looked so handsome in uniform. Their love for each other was so evident, and the extra touches they put into their wedding made it so sweet to celebrate!

Here is how the day went from our cameras’ eyes:

For the first look, Holly called out Ryan’s name from the other side of the garden bridge, and Ryan’s reaction the moment he turned around was priceless. He was SO ready to see her!

The ceremony held some of the most fun details I’ve seen at a wedding. For the unity sand pouring, the couple opted to fill an hourglass, which continued to count down as the ceremony continued. They also had their vows printed on plaques that they read to each other, which turned into an art piece for their future home so they can daily remember the commitment they made to each other.

They couldn’t decide who would have the honor of reading their vows first, so the best man flipped a coin. 🙂

The sun came out the moment they kissed! Such a fun blessing!

The reception was held in the Crystal Ballroom, one of the most stunning rooms the hotel offers. The charm of the historical room, with candlelight adorning the tables and floor-to-ceiling windows, made for the perfect venue for the Bowmans and their guests!
