Wedding Sneak preview! A beautiful December wedding ceremony and reception for Richard and Jennifer this past Saturday in Fredericksburg, VA. The groom surprised his bride with a beautiful love song - and an amazing voice. The couple are singers and musicians so their music-centered ceremony, with a live band, was well suited, and very thoughtfully planned. The bridal party and guests enjoyed a simply elegant ceremony and reception, with laughter, dancing, toasts, a gorgeous and delicious cake, and a fun photobooth experience.

For this wedding we created a set up with wireless off-camera lighting to add a nice edge during the ceremony and reception. Our technique for this indoor wedding included a combination of ambient light only, on-camera flash + ambient, and off-camera flash lighting. Not all ceremonies are suited for this type of set up, but this one was. We loved using this unobtrusive and powerful technique for this sweet wedding.

Here's a lighting diagram for this wedding ceremony:
