Semple Mansion | Military Wedding

Semple Mansion is the very definition of both elegance and luxury.  It’s historic charm provides the perfect backdrop for a wedding day in any season!  Claire & Dillon’s military wedding was the perfect fit for Semple Mansion.  It’s grand staircases and beautiful bridal suite framed the beautiful lacey white details and pop of spring pink florals perfectly!  Dillon’s men looked dashing in their suits and the military details woven into their day provided the perfect reminder to us of how grateful we are for all of the men and women who selflessly serve our country!  We do not take for granted the freedom that we have or the sacrifice each of their families make, and we are humbled by their willingness to serve!

One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is when the bride walks down the aisle and sees her groom waiting for her.  Semple Mansion is a venue that makes this moment epic with its grand staircase leading down through the guests and around to view the wedding party standing beneath the glittering chandeliers.  As everyone watches the bride approach, we love capturing the groom’s expression as he waits in anticipation for the moment that his bride becomes his life-adventurer.  Laughter, tears, joy-filled anticipation – they are each such beautiful emotions to photograph and we make it our mission to capture each one as the day unfolds!

Not only was this wedding day emotional, but every moment was filled with grace, beauty, charm, and LOVE!  Dillon and Claire were filled with joy as they ran through the tunnel of swords just after saying “I Do!”  They put all other cake knives to shame when they cut their cake with Dillon’s sword.  Their wedding party was amazing and we had a blast as they entered their reception hall!  From the speeches to the dances, every detail was romantic and beautiful!
