Heather and Steven had their ceremony and reception at the beautiful Thalian Hall downtown. We took advantage of the cool backstage area to get ready. I loved the Hollywood style lights.
The ceremony was held in an upstairs ballroom that would double as the reception area. We took a few quick pics of the bride, groom, bridal party and family after the ceremony and then headed outside while they flipped the room for the reception.
Outside, we took advantage of all the cool steps that surround the hall. Out front there was one movie poster that was left blank. I love to create graphic elements so I photoshopped in my own ad for their wedding nuptials.
Drapes. velvet and bold bold red - whats not to love? Heather and Steven took it upon themselves to make everyone'e wedding favor - caramel apples. I love the bride and groom versions they made for their table.
Sisters always have the most fun, proven by the Thriller themed dance they made up on the spot.
I had been dying to take the whole bridal party into the theatre for group photos earlier in the night but Peter Pan had been rehearsing in between the ceremony and reception. Since I knew there was no way we could get the whole bridal party during the reception(let's face it, boys lose pieces of their tuxedos quickly), I just stole Steven and Heather away for about 20 min. We got some awesome shots on the stage and around this classic background. So much red velvet, I love it!
The festivities ended with a sparkler sendoff. Congrats Steven and Heather!!!
