Melanie & Kevin | The Avanti Mansion

Melanie & Kevin had the perfect day with their Avanti Mansion Wedding, Tiffany started with the girls in the Lofts at Pearl @ The Web. Their room was flooded with beautiful natural light, perfect for getting ready. The exposed brick wall makes for really cool details, some of the brick is damaged and makes it easy to hang the dress and even Melanie’s shoes! Robert started with the groom and the groomsmen at their house. Their backyard backed up to a creek and made for a great hangout for the guys and portrait opportunities. Melanie and Kevin exchanged gifts, which made for some really sweet moments. The girls got in the limo bus and arrived at Gallagher pier for the first sight, Kevin was already in place in the middle of the pier. It was a really dramatic first sight, then we went into photos. After we were ready to explore the next option, which was the grain mill next to the beach. Normally they don’t allow people in this Mill, as its owned by a boat yard. But they asked and we were allowed to quickly take some photos around the grain mills. It was really cool, as in the past we never had been allowed this far into this location. Then we left for Woodlawn beach, where I feel the wedding party really shined, their suits and dresses were perfect for a beach like feeling. A driftwood arch was still up on the beach, which was perfect for some photos with the two of them. If you’ve ever been to woodlawn beach its no surprise it may not be your first choice for a location, as its doesn’t seem like it would be a perfect location. But it photographs really well, if you don’t mind getting a little dirty. We arrived at The Avanti Mansion and Melanie took a break to work on her vows. The girls took care of her dress, making sure it was perfect and ready for the ceremony. The brides suite was amazing in the The Mansion side of The Avanti Mansion. The ceremony site is really dramatic, its on the side of a hill. The actual ceremony takes place on a small island in the pond. For all the drama it can be a tricky type of ceremony to photograph, as the bridesmaids and bride have walk down the stairs, often looking down so they don’t miss step. Of course we also try and stay out of anyone’s view or way so not to disturb the real moments. But Melanie did the stairs beautifully and we were able to capture lots of beautiful moments. We had great light for the family photos, while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour. The tent was stunning, draped over the posts and chandlers with rice paper balls hanging from the ceiling. It was really elegant feeling with the white and champagne colors accents. One of the guests approached us and asked if we’d like to use their vintage car for any photos. It made for some really fun photos, matching The Avanti Mansion’s old 1920’s feeling. The night couldn’t have gone any more perfect, we were so happy with all of our photos from Melanie & Kevin’s wedding. We are really looking forward to photographing her Maid of Honors wedding! Catching up with Kevin & Melanie then and of course lots more moments to capture 🙂
