Cold wind and rain didn’t stop this couple from having a wedding to remember – and we have the pictures to prove it.
The wedding was originally planned to be outdoors in the new open pavillion. A fast moving cold front made sure it would take place in the backup location just inside the club house. We did have a small window where we could take pictures of the wedding party just outside.
The rest of the night was warm and cozy in the spacious conference center. The decor was rustic country accented by mason jars hanging from the ceiling over the dance floor. In some of the shots I used a monopod to get elevated shots with some of the jars in the picture. They were lit by faux vigil light candles that didn’t put out much light so in some shots I used Lightroom’s mask brush to give the impression they were putting out more light than was there. I posted several before and after photos for comparision.
The walls of the conference center were off white so I used 2 Elinchrom 600RX heads with Paul Buff shoot through umbrellas at either end of the dance floor diagonally to light the space and take advantage of the walls and ceiling. These were triggered with Pocket Wizard Multimax units, sometimes in conjunction with the on camera Canon 600EX-RT. The cake, cake cutting shots and rings shots were lit with Canon 600EX-RTs(2) and triggered with the on camera unit (on camera unit flash off).
