The past weekend I was privileged to capture one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. Pretty Place Chapel at sunrise. Not only this but a Wedding at Pretty Place Chapel at sunrise. I’m sure you have already skipped past this text and are already staring at the drop dead gorgeous view. Just in case your still reading though, I remember when I first heard about Kurt and Tina’s idea to have their wedding at Pretty Place. Just their immediate family, a short ceremony with a few quick photos after. I’ve done weddings up at Pretty Place before and it is always stunning but nothing could prepare me for how beautiful it looks during sunrise while the leaves are changing.
We arrived at Pretty Place Chapel (technically called Symmes Chapel) early that morning to catch the sky just before the sun came up, and stayed for just an hour or so after that. With temperatures in the mid 30’s and a brisk fall breeze the stage was set for a beautiful yet chilly ceremony. I still to this day don’t know how Tina survived in her wedding dress out there. Probably pure adrenaline. Or pure excitement and anticipation for what was to come. All I have to say is that I was good and frozen by the end of it, and I was lucky enough to be in a wool suit! Thank you both for having me capture this special intimate ceremony. It is something I know I will never forget.
Thanks again for having me!
