Sean & Kelly | wedding at The Allan House

Wow! What a night to remember! Kelly & Sean sure know how to throw party…I mean wedding… The Allan House was the perfect backdrop to their vintage style, 80’s themed wedding! With an all star cast of wedding professionals, the night was sure to be one for the ages. Courtney from BZ Events organized the whole wedding, and the pig… that’s right a whole pig, was roasted by Royal Fig catering and sweets were provided by Stardust Pastry, delicious! The wedding ceremony was short & sweet as the newly weds recited their vows together at the same time, but the real action started at the reception. Radiostar kicked off the night with a Metallica cover song, Nothing Else Matters for the Bride & Groom’s first dance! That set the tone for the whole night which you can see from the photos below, and be on the look out for the elusive “keytar” near the end of the reception! Epic! I knew we were in trouble when Lloyd & Harry decided to crash the party… Sean & Kelly also decided to include and Guestbook Polaroid Station for their guest to sign… well, I got a hold of a camera and the rest is history. ;)I also shot some 120 film on my Yashica Mat twin lens camera, see if you can spot the photos taken with film! 😉 Big thanks to Eric Kotara for second shooting this one with me.


















































Did I forget to mention the Keytar? Yeah, that was awesome and it culminated in the greatest most climactic ending to a wedding reception ever!

    What an amazing wedding. Classy, but with none of the stuffiness that can sometimes come with being classy. Man, I totally wish my wedding was like this! Everything just seems so fun and laid back, and the fans were a great idea to give the guests. Definitely a nice keepsake.

    Really fab work (as usual) Ben, your story-telling of these two is a joy to see, and I don’t even know the couple 🙂

    P.S. I’m totally digging the Polaroids too!ReplyCancel

    OMG! You were right. That looks like the coolest wedding ever! Let’s play i-spy. I spy: Cokes in bottles. Flaminco guitar player. Polaroids. Great socks! Cowboy hats. A whole pig and barbecue (Yum). Bibs for adults. A band with great gear (Dr. Z amp… although shame on the guy with the Vox Tonelab). A KEETAR!!! Old suits w/ Tophats and Canes. Addidas warm ups. Super cute couple and a bicycle rickshaw.

    VERY COOL!ReplyCancel

    Alright, I don’t even know where to start. I think this is the greatest wedding EVER! The couple look AMAZING, the detail shots are to die for as are all the others. I just am seriously lost for words and the keytar-toting band looks absolutely awesome. It really looks like the perfect wedding to represent the bride & groom, Sean & Kelly, and it looks like they all had a blast 😀ReplyCancel
