Salvage One Wedding | Brian + Noreen

salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-76 So my excitement to get this post up and shared is a bit wild. Like in a way where I had favorited far toooooo many images for a reasonable blog post. Why you ask? Well I super loved everything about the day I got to spend with Noreen + Brian and their incredible families + friends. For one, I’ve known Noreen since a single digit grade back in elementary school + a bunch of her Mighty Mac bridesmaids since HS. Plus – this day was fun. Fun. Fun. Fun. That is what this day was, from start to our photo finish where the entire reception got to the floor to Rock the Boat…. I mean just loads of gorgeous fun! These two were hitched at Salvage One, which on its own is a photographers dream come true. It is always different – and always amazing, like a playground for us if I’m being honest. And getting to put these guys into a whole bunch of different spots for photos was just the best! Plus everyone around Noreen + Brian was just soooooo, so happy to be there to celebrate these two getting married! The dance floor was just completely lit up from the moment the music started, and the speeches were all filled with ridiculous love and humor! It was such a warm and inviting atmosphere to get to capture, and we loved every moment! I started the morning off with Nonie and her gals….salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-2 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-1 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-4 While Nicole made her way over to Brian and the guys. salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-18 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-5 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-6 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-12 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-7 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-8 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-19 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-15 salvageonewedding_ellerosephoto_B+N-10 Diiiiiiva!

And now, a few words from the B + G….
Most hilarious moment of the day?: When Brian was teaching Julian our ring bearer how to slide and ended up bruising his knee pretty bad. 
Would you have done anything differently?: We would figure out time travel so we could do it all over again. It was the absolute best night of our lives!
Favorite moment from your day?: Seeing each other for the first time walking down the aisle. 
Any tips or tricks for future couples planning their weddings?: Don’t sweat the small stuff most people won’t even notice any little glitch that might have gone wrong.
