Mallard Island Yacht Club Wedding PhotographyI absolutely love the barn at the Mallard Island Yacht Club. It is a fantastically unique venue for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Brides and grooms have the warm feel of being outside on the water while still being enclosed and protected from the elements. The lighting is always lovely in the space whether it is cloudy or sunny outside. Immediately after their sunset wedding ceremony in the barn the bride and groom turned to face their guests for the first time as a newly married couple. This image was captured when they were exiting the barn and heading towards their wedding reception. I am always continually observant during the recessional after a wedding ceremony because as the bride and groom walk through their guests the reactions on their faces are priceless. The reaction and thumbs up from the groom and exuberantly happy expression on the bride serve to illustrate exactly why I love this part of the wedding day so much.
