As you pull up to the gates of the Park Chateau Estate & Gardens, you are greeted with a grand cobblestone entrance way, pristine gardens and a venue fit for royalty! This day may have started like a few of our recent weddings, with rain. But as the ceremony time got closer, the sky cleared and the sun shined down on John and Corley and the love they share!
Ryan and I are both lucky enough to know the groom, but its funny, because he knew both Ryan and I separately before we even ever met! I went to school with John and Ryan played hockey with him! On the morning of their wedding, we had the privilege of meeting Corley for the very first time, and it was like meeting an old friend. Corley was super sweet and you could just see the love that she has for John!
Hope you enjoy a little peek into their amazing day!

The day started with the ladies getting ready in the beautiful bridal suite! The room is huge and perfectly set up for large bridal parties to get ready! Especially the salon area for hair and makeup! Corley’s dress was so beautiful, luxurious and elegant! I am in love with the blush and rose gold bridesmaids dresses from Christina Wu Celebration! The bride checking out the current weather situation… praying for those blue skies to appear! (Spoiler – they did!!!!) Corley’s grandmother zipping up her dress! Checking out how beautiful her daughter Bella looks with her flower crown! While the ladies were getting ready, the boys hung out in the grooms suite, drinking beer and eating bacon that was made especially for them! Since Corley is Hawaiian, she had lei’s flown in from Hawaii and her grandmother presented each of the groomsmen and John with a lei for the wedding, which symbolizes love and respect. John dressing their son Noah 🙂 I was so excited that Corley and John decided to do a first look! It gave us SO much time for photos!
As we approached the staircase, the tears started to build up in Corley’s eyes… it was a good thing that bridal attendant Ashley had tissues ready for her! (Spoiler alert – Corley needed lots of Ashley’s tissues throughout the day! haha!) Corley looks so elegant walking down the gorgeous staircase… John was SO excited to see Corley!! The library was AMAZING to shoot in as the rain started to ease up outside! These two… Swoon! About an hour before the ceremony was due to begin, the rain stopped, so we took advantage and went outside! Corley! You are beyond gorgeous my dear! John, you’re not so bad yourself! John making vows to Corley’s daughter Bella, promising to be the best dad possible for her! YAY!! Congratulations Mr & Mrs Feldman!! The laughter this day was absolutely contagious! John and Corley, the way they look at one another… there really isn’t anything quite like it. It’s inspiring. Such an elegant ballroom! Palermo’s Bakery did an amazing job on the wedding cake!
