Dan & Julie | Chase Park Plaza Hotel
Dan proposed at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in the exact spot where he and Julie kissed for the very first time. The engagement photos for this couple were naturally taken in this same locale, offering just a hint of what their Wedding would be like.
And so, when that remarkably beautiful September afternoon finally arrived, walking through the Chase Park Plaza Hotel with Dan and Julie again sparked memories for us, yet for them each step was rich with meaning. We absolutely loved photographing them in this area of the Central West End.
The Wedding details were a study in classic style, with their Bridal Party in black and white. Black bow ties with white hydrangeas and roses combined to compliment the robust architecture and feel of the Chase Park Plaza Hotel.
The Wedding began with a simple ceremony beneath a stone archway near the pool, with only their closest friends and family. The sun set as they said their vows, their joy competing as the golden glimmer of the sun languidly sank. Poolside, the water and palm trees added to the unique event, causing us to almost forget where we were at moments as that gorgeous golden lighting cast across the scene.
On the patio adjacent to the pool the reception began, string lights and a live band, complete with baby grand piano, set the stage for a lively celebration for this wonderful couple.
