There's some great stories in these photos so I'll comment along. Enjoy!
A moment to reflect right before getting in the dress and heading down to the ceremony.
Mom and sister help fit the dress.. it wasn't adjusted properly at this point ;)
Lots of awesome details.. so many to choose from. Ellen is a designer by trade (always fun working with creative types!) and did an excellent job coordinating the details of her own wedding, without breaking the bank.
Ben and his parents coming for the ceremony
A little bit of time for some portraits
Custom straws for the cocktails. Everyone enjoyed their drinks :)
Ben and Ellen provided the most awesome gift bag to their guests (as favors) ever.. samples of foods from various places that are important to them both individually and together. Of course, Ellen tossed in some design sensibility and voila!
Once the music started and the feather boas came out, people got dancing :)
A special song (Lady Gaga) for Ben's dad. I love the reaction of the guests behind him LOL
One minor thing went wrong.. Paula here bumped her leg against some hot lights and got a really nasty burn :( Hope she gets better soon. The party was definitely jumping when I had to head out for the night.
And thanks to Nicole (in the turquoise dress) and Eric for the good word to Ellen and Ben!
Thank you again Ellen and Ben for a great time (and a chance for my wife to take a break). I enjoyed being a part of your wedding.
