Recently we photographed a wedding in the atrium of the downtown Austin Omni Hotel. We’ve been to numerous Omni’s in many cities doing weddings in various ballrooms but last Saturday’s wedding was a fun intimate event...in the atrium. Cora and Cameron met in the US Navy while stationed in Hawaii (I know…we had really hoped the wedding would be held on the beach in Hawaii. Maybe a future possibility with a friend of Cora’s.) Prior to the ceremony we had an opportunity for a fun and unusual photo as Ray staged Cameron and the groomsmen in one elevator and I staged Cora in the next elevator. There they were in full view of the atrium and lobby areas right next to each other but unable to see the other. Reflections played a big part of the evening with vertical mirrors in the groom’s room for the groomsmen, the polished floors of the Omni for Cora & Cameron’s first walk as man and wife. Their little daughter Maddie was the flower girl and lived up to the title with flowers in her dress and by tossing rose petals all throughout the reception at least till bedtime. Lights from the DJ danced up and down the walls as the families and guests danced and laughed and celebrated into the night.
