A cultural infusion of sacred traditions blended with modern flair made beautiful memories at Michelle and Greg’s full course wedding. Prior to the ceremony, I met the happy couple at the Hotel Monaco where Greg set eyes on his bride for the first time. Their smiles lit up every corner of the room as they exchanged giddy pleasantries. From there, we set off for a walk around PNC Park, then explored the architecture of Oakland. At Phipps Conservatory, the guests were immersed in an urban tropical as they watched teary-eyed while the bride and groom traded rings in a sincere ceremony. As the sun descended behind the ceiling windows, the level of euphoria began to rise as newlyweds entered the reception. Michelle, a ballet prodigy, and her husband-to-be perfected their talents leading up their wedding. Their impressive first dance had to be one of the most breathtaking displays I’ve seen in my time as a photographer. From there, the cake was cut and speeches were given. Yet once the dancing started the chairs could have been carted away from the floor as there simply was no end to the energy that engaged everyone in attendance. Such a great night, thank you Greg and Michelle. I wish you both the best in the future.
