DJ: Thomas Twiss
Coordinator, Caterer , Cake, and Florist: Stroudsmore Country Inn
Gown: Gerri’s Bridal
Destination Wedding Photography: Michael Anthony + Eric Killingsworth
We were excited for this wedding, it represented a record for us, and possibly in wedding photography in general. After spending 4 days in St. Louis, Eric and I flew back to LA and photographed a wedding the night before this event in Long Beach, California. After which, we hopped on a plane, and flew on a red eye to JFK, sleeping on the plane, grabbed a car, and drove in to Stroudsmore for this wedding, possibly being the first photographers to shoot 2 weddings within 24 hours on opposite ends of the country.
When working out the details I asked Eric if we were up to this travel challenge, to which he replied, “We’re Rockstars.” While that is open for debate, what isn’t is that we were incredibly honored to be invited across the country by Lyndi and Joey to photograph this beautiful event at a gorgeous venue. I love destination weddings because when a couple places their trust in us to travel with them to document their event, we become friends over the journey. While we photograph 5-10 destination weddings per year, our love to explore new destinations never gets old.
So let’s hear some of their story…..
What’s your favorite memory together aside from the proposal?
My favorite memory is on Valentine’s Day a year ago. I was upset because I thought I would not be able to see him. We lived over an hour apart and my parents took me up and we all had dinner together. After that Joey took me to his sisters house where he already had tons of rose petals in a hot tub with candles lit and sparkling juice ready and when I walked in the song in the background was the first song we had ever danced to.
