The Bridge Building Wedding

So many memorable moments at Jessica and Patrik’s wedding at The Bridge Building. To start off, it was gorgeous. Some of my favorite details included Jessica’s dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses, Patrik’s attire, the incorporation of their pups on the cake and drink menus, the absolutely stunning skyline that you looked at the entire night from the venue’s windows, and how freaking fun it was. I knew the fun was happening the day that I met Jessica as a bridesmaid in another one of my weddings though. She and Patrik are both people that know how to surround themselves with really great friends. And as I heard story after story after story at the rehearsal dinner about how good of friends they are. How good of mentors they are. How much they have done for all the people in their bridal party. It made sense. Of course, the day was going to be full of some of the best memories because every single person was there to genuinely celebrate them and celebrate them hard!

All day long, the drizzle was coming and going. It was just a little sprinkle, but enough that most brides would not be up for going out from under coverage. But not Jess and Pat. They were all in. Not only did we go out in the drizzle, but we walked up to the top of the pedestrian bridge and got some of my most favorites shots from the day. The wind up there was blowing Jessica’s veil all around Pat’s white jacket was just working with the white bridge. And after the ceremony, we hiked all the way across the bridge to get a champagne shot at the end of Broadway. It is hands down one of my most favorite night shots I have ever ever taken. And if you scroll for no other reason, it’s to see those. But they did it, in the rain and in the freezing cold and Patrik did it with no umbrella (we ran out and he drew the short straw) and guys… it was so worth it. Absolutely so worth it.

All the people at Jess and Pat’s wedding knew how to have fun. By the end of the night, Patrik had chipped his tooth and an ambulance had come to help someone who fell on some slick stairs. The next day as I was looking at my instastories, one of them had a picture of Patrik’s tooth and said “Ummm.. if you didn’t chip a tooth, did you even get married??” and that is forever with me.

I respect these two so much. They went through hell and back from March until December, and they didn’t let it stop them. Jessica lost her job, and she didn’t let it stop her. COVID gets crazy again, and they didn’t let it steal their joy. Jess and Pat are here for the fun and determination and hard work and that is how I know they will have a long marriage. I’m so thankful they chose me as their photographer and also so thankful they recommended me to their friends! I love this friend group, and I cannot wait to have another one of their weddings to go to!
