An Autumn wedding at Aria with its awesome panoramic outdoor views as well as the familiar grand views inside is always an amazing combination for a wedding. Combine that with a couple that has an enthusiasm to have their wedding photographed and you have a recipe for an amazing wedding day. Their wedding day started off with portraits of the guys on the grounds around Aria. The guys showed up early before the girls arrived so I could get a lot of great shots of Ricky and his groomsmen while we had good daylight. Taking portraits before the ceremony also allows a lot of portraits to be taken in a relaxed situation without having all the portraits squeezed into the cocktail hour. It also allows for the wedding party to better participate in the cocktail hour. After shooting the portraits with the guys next Jess and her bridesmaids arrived and made their way to the bridal suite for their getting ready shots. Their outdoor ceremony followed. It was a cool October day but everyone toughed it out for what made a beautiful ceremony with the reading of personal vows and a sand ceremony as well. In October, daylight fades early so I worked fast to get the remaining portraits of the bridesmaids, family portraits and portraits of Jess and Ricky outside with the setting sun and autumn colors before finishing up their portraits inside where it was warmer. Next came their beautiful wedding reception with 4 wonderful toasts, parent dances a bouquet toss and lots of fun on the dance floor. It was a wonderful wedding celebration at Aria.
