Wedding Bells (West) - - Details -

FROM KRIS­TEN: We were go­ing for a ca­sual, rus­tic feel. We didn’t have a theme or colours per se, we just knew we wanted a lot of neu­trals and green­ery to give the in­dus­trial space at Ev­er­green Brick Works a some­what ro­man­tic feel. We wanted the decor to be min­i­mal­ist so that it would com­ple­ment, rather than over­power, the ex­ist­ing aes­thetic of the venue. Af­ter be­ing to­gether for 12 years, we wanted to plan a wed­ding that was very “us.” That meant some­thing ca­sual but heart­felt, re­plete with per­sonal touches. Our wed­ding day turned out to be just that. The en­ergy and pure, gen­uine ex­cite­ment we felt through­out the day, from be­gin­ning to end, is some­thing we will never be able to repli­cate. From our per­spec­tive, the band was key to the whole evening. We still have vivid mem­o­ries of our guests run­ning to the dance floor from across the room when they heard the be­gin­ning of a Back­street Boys track. At one point I looked over and saw my 86-year-old grand­fa­ther bust­ing a move—a sight I’ve never ever seen be­fore! Our fam­i­lies were liv­ing in the mo­ment and the ex­cite­ment was con­ta­gious.

FROM THE PHO­TOG­RA­PHER: I haven’t shot a wed­ding en­tirely on an iPhone be­fore but I was so ex­cited for the chal­lenge! I love that an iPhone al­lows you to cap­ture some­thing quickly and por­trait mode blows me away. The por­trait of Kris­ten with her flow­ers is a favourite. This im­age was lit from be­hind, which gives her that beau­ti­ful glow. His­tor­i­cally, back­light has been more chal­leng­ing to cap­ture on phone cam­eras, and the iPhone 8 Plus’ abil­ity to deal with that type of light—for which we wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phers spend all day hunt­ing—is a game changer.
