October 2019 has been a wild time for weather, and Laken & Dane‘s Dunaway Gardens wedding is no exception. The rain barely even slackened off during the wedding day, much less stopped. But they’re an amazing couple who are killer at going with the flow. And because they put their trust and faith in me to create amazing images no matter what, we had a fantastic day. We truly got some utterly magical shots!
Laken is someone I’ve worked with many times in the past as a model. So I was incredibly flattered when she and Dane chose me to photograph their wedding. I mean, the theme alone had me hyped: dark fairytale? HELL yes! They’re big balls of nerdy sparkles mixed with heavy metal, which I completely adore. Their wedding really showcased that contrast and blended it well. They even met while modeling for a Star Wars-themed photoshoot!
There were fairytales on every table. Plus Disney love at their head table, Star Wars references in the seating chart, and a Haunted Mansion wedding cake. Everywhere you turned, there were thoughtful details chock full of meaning and care. We are going back out in early 2020 to really capture some daytime garden romance, but I adore the look we got on wedding day, too! A dark and rainy day not only fit their aesthetic well, but allowed for some fun lighting! Congratulations, you two! I can’t wait to see you again and I’m so happy I could be there to capture your special Dunaway Gardens wedding!
