” What we do in life echoes in eternity “
~ Maximus ~
One of my favorite quotes in all of film. So simple in it’s words and so powerful in it’s sentiment, a truth not one soul could argue with. Any way it’s said sounds cool and thinking on it can lead you into a territory so deep in the mind your head will burst haha. As EPIC as that quote is though don’t forget that we can apply it to everything under the umbrella of life, no matter how small or big. Knowing this catapults the train of thought into progression. I think about this and can’t help to think about Michelle and Danny and THE GRAND LONG BEACH WEDDING they had. The amount of fun we had and especially the energy that was so high will definitely echo in eternity for them!
We started out with Danny and the boys at the Long Beach Marriott, I love this hotel. The rooms have such a nice hue to them and there is so so much to do on the grounds. Although we didn’t have time to venture out and rock some images we made due with expensive bourbon, shots and good fun. While we’re all kickin ass at the hotel, Michelle and her girls are at THE GRAND LONG BEACH getting prepped for the awesome day ahead. THE GRAND LONG BEACH is a pretty rad venue. Although the bridal suite is lacking there are more than enough other ways that make up for it. For example the beautiful long hallways, an amazing bar, an outdoor reception area that just rocks and finally a great manicured front area for night shots. So even though the bridal suite was a little lacking in awesomeness THE GRAND LONG BEACH made up for it in other aspects.
Our day was crazy as hell haha! We had groomsmen dropping the groom, taco sliders, speeches that almost incited the inner tiger of Danny and lots of drinks. Did I mention lots of drinks? Oh also a cake cutting I’ll remember forever, too damn good.
It’s times like this that the chemistry between us becomes so apparent. To be able to party with and still do a kick ass job for my couples is the greatest feeling I can have and it’s one of the hundreds of reasons I keep pushing myself to be better / stronger and more creative.
No without further adieu please enjoy some of the images from Michelle and Dannys THE GRAND LONG BEACH WEDDING.
