Heidi and Otto at Belcourt Castle 3/29/2008

It was a beautiful evening with beautiful and lovely people! Heidi and Otto were such a pleasure. They love each other so much and truly enjoyed their wedding together, it was so nice to be around them and to share their day, I'm glad I could contribute something so meaningful and I know that they will appriciate it as much as they do each other!
Although this is a serious photo of Heidi, she was having the best time getting ready, lots of laughs!

The natural light at Belcourt is awesome! They have beautiful spots for portraits.

The ceremony was at 6pm in the gothic ballroom, but there was still great light coming through the stained glass windows, it was so dramatic and romantic in there.

We made it outside for a few photos, we were crunched for time, but they were good sports!

The top photo was taken from the organ balcony. I made it up there to find these three little steep stairs and that it was a lot higher that it looked! Although I was freaking out and sweating like crazy, I got the shot! A personal triumph. The shot on the bottom was taken in the music room, cool.

The sword arch was fun, tradition has the last man whack the bride on the butt as she walks by...but I think he chopped her bustle right off!

Just want to give a shout out to Otto for making this dancing shot happen! They dipped the first time in the other direction, so when he realized that I was standing behind them he turned and dipped again without missing a beat. Way to work it, thank you!

  1. Congratulations to the happy couple! They picked a truly magnificent and special location for their wedding. I think this is the ceremony that the owner was speaking about when I was on the phone with her a few days ago; she was making wedding preparations.

    I commented on the earlier pictures because things tagged with "Belcourt Castle" are automatically emailed to me.

  2. Love the natural light you mentioned!
