The indoor images you see above of the couple snuggling were taken in the Ballroom right before the reception began. It's a huge space with a lot of opportunities for photos.
- The Staircase: The Mansion's grand staircase provides an impressive setting for bridal portraits or dramatic wedding party shots. The staircase features a wrought-iron banister and intricate molding, adding to the space's grandeur. This is possibly my favorite place in the entirely of the Mansion. The images of the couple above with the railing in the background were taken here on the staircase, specifically on the second floor. I also love looking down and photographing from that vantage point on the stairs.
- The Grounds: The Mansion's massive property offers plenty of outdoor photo opportunities. The gardens feature a wide variety of flowers and plants, and the pond provides a serene and picturesque setting for photos. I love the columns at the outdoor ceremony location. I love the hedges that separate the walking path from the ceremony location. I love the fountain outside. The grounds are a playground for photographers with a lot of different backgrounds, vantage points, and lighting conditions.
