This past weekend was a special treat! We didn't photograph a wedding, we photographed a reception! Daniel and Venina are both from Indonesia and had their traditional wedding a couple of weeks ago back in their home country! I welcomed the chance to shoot a reception-only event and their party was absolutely stunning! Their event took place in the Dowling Studio at the Guthrie Theater, but the best part was their actual dinner was in a small theater...that they rarely rent out for events! It was such a great surprise! I can't tell you how many times I have photographed in this space and never knew there was this magical little theater behind the doors! Event Couture made sure that all of Venina's hand-made details were in place for her big event! (And when I say hand made...everything from the floral arrangements to the cute little seating tags were all her creation!) The setting of Daniel and Venina's reception was the perfect fit for them! Well constructed, creative, modern and dramatic...all of these things reflect their two personalities perfectly!
My all-time-favorite part of their day came down to one thing: Their flower girls! They totally stole the show...
Congratulations to Daniel and Venina on your marriage!
