Last night was an epic night; plain and simple. Every wedding is special and I have never, in all that I have attended, not loved every second of being there. Last night was special and a wedding day that I will not soon forget.
I had been looking forward to this wedding for a while. Kim and Ray are special people and were so kind from the moment we first spoke. The venue peaked my interest from the very beginning as well. I love a wedding that goes against the grain and some of my favorites are restaurant venues.
This one happened to be at Ouisie’s Table and if you haven’t been there you’re missing out. The atmosphere is just stunning and the food amazing. I couldn’t think of a better place to have your wedding (or to simply have a nice meal). Far above the beauty of the venue were the staff, however. Not a second went by that the staff were not on hand to assist with anything needed by anyone in attendance, including the vendors. To top it off, service staff were even dancing it up with the guests and ensuring that everyone had an unforgettable time. This was a pleasure to see and I am sure it did not go unnoticed by Kim & ray or any of their guests.
It seems almost a rarity to see weddings with bands en lieu of a DJ these days and let’s face it, some bands we have seen aren’t truly remembered later on. The Grooves, out of Austin, TX were the musical guests and entertainment on this night and what a choice they were! They kept the party going every second they played and did an amazing job with every chosen song. Simply stated…The Grooves ROCK and I would recommend them to everyone looking for live music.
Kim & Ray, I just want to say congratulations on your marriage and give you all of the best wishes and blessings you could hope for in your life together. Your friends were awesome, your family amazing and the two of you are simply fantastic. It was an honor to be a part of your day and I know that you both will do well in the future.
Thank you for trusting me to capture your memories and, most of all, for allowing me to be a part of your day! Enjoy your honeymoon and we’ll have these photos done before you know it!
