Nancy & Ilan | Longview Gallery wedding

Nancy and Ilan make the best facial expressions.  And they have excellent taste.  And they are adorable.

We started the day in their bridal suite with a ketubah signing.  The rabbi – that’s Ilan’s father.  He was hilarious.

And then the Justin the videographer and I rolled on over to the Art of Shaving on 17th to watch Ilan trim up that beard of his.

Did I mention they were adorable?  First look with no tears (!)  Everybody always feels so much better after the first look.

Then we scooted over to Longview Gallery to do some portraits in the really cool alleys behind the venue.

Nancy and her girls hid out in the convention center for a minute so their guests wouldn’t see her.  So we took advantage of this rad sculpture mobile thing.

Longview is such a fantastic venue.  I love the juxtaposition of all the craziness and emotion and dance floor with the art on the walls.
