Any time we do bridal shows, we never know what could happen, or what we are walking into. We did a bridal show once and let me tell you, I'm pretty sure none of the vendors decided to return. At the end of the show, NO ONE had booked anyone, so we knew, it had nothing to do with us. However, we had met one super cute couple, Jessica and Doug, who were engaged at the time, and they were the vendors right next door to us. Jessica, Doug, Patrick and I all clicked... we talked pretty much the whole show since it was so slow, and I think it was then that we all realized... we actually did get something out of that bridal show!!
Jessica and Doug put on a pretty sweet wedding "show" I have to admit. Being themselves owners of a rental supply company in Skysville, these guys had it all on their wedding day. Chocolate Fountains, Beautiful draping, smoke and fog machines, confetti canons, sparklers AND fireworks... and so much more. These guys transformed a space into something incredible. What's crazy is that I shot one of my first weddings ever in that same building, but I'll tell you what... that space looked nothing like what it was because of the time and resources these guys put into their wedding day.
Doug and Jessica, thank you so much for having and entrusting your wedding day to Patrick and I. We loved your people, loved your massive bridal party (28 including your little crew of little kids) and you beautiful formal Gatsby themed wedding, complete with precious details and moments.
(FUN FACT ABOUT THESE GUYS: Jessica and Doug also have another company called DNJ Pro, which is a professional entertainment lighting distributor, and they are the exclusive distributors for Novalight - which actually makes the largest moving concert lights in the world. Their guys were there and used to work for Coldplay. Seriously, awesome power lighting at this wedding!)
