St. Thomas Preservation Hall Wedding

This St. Thomas Preservation Hall Wedding was a fine one indeed. Kim and Jacob found me online and we hit it off right away. Mostly, because I have that I’m a Buffalo Bills fan in my bio and her family is all from back in the Buffalo area as mine is. So right away there was a great connection over loving a terrible football team. Jacob went to high school with a really good friend and fellow wedding industry professional Matt of The Good Life Film Co who filmed their wedding. We had a great crew working it and everyone in the bridal party and family were just top not to be around all day.

We did a first look(which I highly recommend) across the street at The City Club of Wilmington in the front terrace that is full of greenery and gardens. It was a great location being that it is right across the street and has beautiful rooms to get ready in as you’ll see. It reminded me a lot of the old Victorian homes I see back in New York. The great part about doing a first look is after it’s over the jitters have gone away and the couple is able to just relax and really enjoy the day together instead of waiting up until the ceremony. We were also able to squeeze in more portraits because they had seen each other a few hours before the ceremony. It’s a win win all the way around and I high recommend doing one if you’re even slightly thinking about it.

The other great thing about the venue is it’s all in one. So we were able to do the ceremony there and as we went off to do photos of the bride/groom and bridal party they flipped it into the reception hall which made it s super convenient. It was really bright that day so we ended up going back out at sunset to do some photos and I’m really glad we did. The light was just perfect 10 minutes before sunset and we captures some really nice images. I love when Church venues are allowed to be original and have some of their own flavor.
