Off-season was nonexistent this year with my last wedding of 2022 being on New Year's Eve. Regardless, I was so happy to be part of Toni and Andy's beautiful Monarch Room wedding!
The Monarch Room is a brand-new venue located in the Crossroads. I love when I have the chance to photograph new places.
Toni and Andy had to plan their entire wedding in a couple months due to a family emergency, so when I happened to be available, I couldn't turn down the chance to be part of their day!
These two, along with their entire families and wedding party, were a blast to be around. Even with some sadness looming, that didn't dampen the spirits of the day!
They also had so many fun nerdy touches, like having a Star Wars' themed "grand march" to having Andy (from Toy Story) written on the bottom of Toni's shoes. Additionally, I have to give credit to them for using London Boy (Andy is from England) by Taylor Swift as the garter toss. I will always appreciate any excuse to use a Taylor Swift song on a wedding day!
My favorite part had to be toward the end of the night when it happened to snow. Toni wanted a snowy wedding day, so as soon as I saw the snow, I rushed them outside for a quick 5-minute portrait session. Even though it wasn't much, the snow truly made their day one for the books.
Thank you for allowing me to be part of your Monarch Room wedding! Here's your full preview!
