Niko and Helen’s Wedding – St. Paul/Colonnade Club – Charlottesville, VA

320_090509NH_0941A

The weather forecast had threatened to rain down on Niko and Helen’s wedding all week long.  There was a little sprinkle on the day of the their rehearsal, but blue skies prevailed on Saturday, May 9th.  It was the first time that Jason and I have shot at St. Paul’s Memorial Church and the Colonnade Club at UVA.  Rae was shooting along side with us (Rae, you rock!).  I loved the natural and brightly lit interiors of both St. Paul’s and the Colonnade Club.  These two settings really enhanced the  relaxed atmosphere that Niko and Helen envisioned for their wedding day.   A. Pimento Catering did such a splendid job of creating an elegant atmosphere for the reception, and it was so cool to work with Brad Savage, the radio host for 106.1 The Corner.  We have worked with him as an emcee on numerous occasions in the past, but this was the first time as an event DJ.  

What a wonderful gift it was to spend the weekend with Niko, Helen their friends and family.  So compassionate and comforting to be around.  The guests came from far and wide, including Michigan, California, Germany and Japan.   I really fell in love with Helen’s mom.  We sat across from each other at the rehearsal dinner on Friday and had the most wonderful conversations about everything from growing up in Charlottesville to working in the radio and news industry.  I am so fond of  people and their stories.    Helen and Niko will have a wonderful story to tell their children one day about their wedding celebration.
