Emily + Eric: The Oscar Event Center Wedding Day
Earlier this month I kicked off my 2023 wedding season with the sweetest couple! Everything came together beautifully for Emily & Eric’s wedding day at The Oscar Event Center and I am so excited to finally be able to share these photos with you!
When I arrived at The Oscar Event Center I met Emily & her bride tribe in the bridal suite. We were laughing & listening to music as everyone got ready and it’s so obvious that Emily has such an incredible group of friends who spent the morning loving on her and celebrating such a big day with her. Their matching kimonos were so fun and cute and I love how they really popped in these photos. Emily looked absolutely STUNNING in her dress and all of her jewelry details really brought her look together!
While I was with Emily and her girls, my incredible second shooter Sam was with Eric & his guys. They were hanging out in The Oscar Event Center’s pub space and setting up all the final details in the reception hall. Everything came together perfectly and I love the dark accents with the pops of red that Emily & Eric chose. From the looks of it, the guys had a great time hanging out and getting ready!
After everyone was ready, it was time for Eric & Emily to have their first look! This was the sweetest moment and such an honor to witness & capture! Eric and Emily were both bubbling with excitement and had the sweetest reactions to seeing one another for the first time. Emily even took a full circle around the room so that Eric could see how absolutely incredible her dress was. After they shared their moment together, we went straight into taking portraits of the two of them together in the pub, around the venue, and in the wine cellar at Jungle Jim’s! We were able to get so many fun & unique photos of the two of them together and I love the variety of images they now have in their wedding gallery!
After taking couples portraits, it was time for bridal party portraits! The Oscar Event Center has the cutest little balcony area that’s perfect for bridal party photos. We were able to get all the different combinations before taking just a fewwww more photos of Eric & Emily together outside! We were also able to take the majority of the family photos they had on their shot list while out here, but I’m saving those for Emily & Eric to share with you!
After finishing up with portraits, it was time for the ceremony! Eric & Emily’s ceremony ended up being so sweet & emotional and incorporated their shared love for Disney. I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect ceremony for them as a couple and it really helped make the day even better!
Once we finished taking the remaining family photos after the ceremony, it was time for the reception! Emily & Eric’s reception was SO much fun! Their amazing DJ (Douglas Adam Entertainment) brought light sticks that almost looked like lightsabers for the bridal party to hold while Emily & Eric made their big entrance and it truly did set the mood for the party for the rest of the night! The food was incredible and everyone was laughing and dancing and had the best time. It was such an amazing ending to an already perfect day and I’m so happy that Emily & Eric got to celebrate their love with their family & friends. Congratulations again, Emily & Eric! Thank you so much for trusting me to capture such a special day for you!!
