What’s that you say? You want to take the entire bridal party into a bar for some photos before the reception. Hmmmm. Why not?
Actually I love the idea. New Year’s Eve, we had the honor of shooting Mia and Ryan’s gorgeous wedding at the Radisson at Lackawanna Station hotel in Scranton. But before we ever got there for the party, we had a little pre-party at Jilly’s. It’s one of their favorite haunts, and they had the idea that they wanted to go there and fill up the bar to grab some photos. (They had a big bridal party!) So we got there just as the bar was opening, and the people there could not have been more welcoming, especially considering about 30 people just dropped by the take over for a little while. We had a blast. We were able to get some really unique wedding photos that we love. This is the kind of stuff that really inspires us – having a couple willing to break from the traditional to do something that holds meaning to them. In this case, it was a local bar with great friends.
Ryan really had a vision for it too. He thought the shots would look great in black and white. So here you go Ryan. Here are some shots of you and your beautiful bride and amazing family and friends knocking back a couple. We hope you love them as much as we do.
