When Charmin explained her venue and even when we checked out pictures online, I  never could’ve imagined that it would be as fabulous as it was and such a perfect fit for these two.  Although it’s clear from the all the love and joy that surrounded their fabulous wedding day that they could’ve gotten married in a parking lot and it still would’ve have been perfect because for Charmin and David the love they have for each other is what’s important. Not only that, but they have so much family and so many amazing friends who love them that their day never felt stressful once…just happy excitement 🙂

The visual experience that Matt and I had wondering through the museum was only exceeded when Mel took us upstairs  to the “old house” which has been preserved for years and only open to us and the couple for our very own private shoot…see the first image below…WOW!

I am so happy for these two live music loving, swing dancing, madly in love newly weds and can’t wait to hear about all the adventures they are to embark on together on this crazy journey we call life.



A huge thank you to Matt Gillooey for taking amazing photos with me!
