Chantelle & Ben

May 14, 2018

The Colony St John’s Wedding

One of my favorite moments from this wedding actually happened a bit before the big day. I sent out my usual questionnaire to round up all the last minute details, and when asked about their outfits Chantelle said she’d have a “sick leather jacket” and Ben would be wearing a three piece leather suit.

Everything you need to know about this day hides in those details. They knocked the rock ‘n’ roll wedding vibe out of the park. The dining room’s centerpieces were punctuated with skulls and their vows included Ministry lyrics. These two are here to show you what happens when you refuse to be anyone but yourself, all day, every day, and especially on your wedding day.

“it’s a love affair
mainly Jesus and my hot rod.”
