armature works wedding: ramy & josh

He had never smiled wider than he did the first time he saw her that day, and her eyes had never shone as bright as the first time she looked up at him. And together, their love had never felt greater or stronger than it did in that moment. Standing beneath the arch of trees, as people passed but the world felt like it was solely made for them. And a short time later, on a stage beneath screens that had shown great love stories for  so many years before, they shared theirs with the people that meant the most to them. And they promised each other that his smile would never fade and her eyes would never dim, and each day their love would always feel greater than it had the day before . . . .

Ramy and Josh are married! They had a sweet ceremony at Radiant Church followed by one epic reception at Armature Works, that was such a fun day from start to finish. Ramy wore a beautifully flowy cap-sleeved gown that she looked stunning in, and Josh wore a perfectly fitted blue suit that was every bit as fun as his personality. The two of them shared a sweet first look before heading off to their ceremony, which was so insanely unique because it was in a converted movie theater! As guests entered, they walked past the snack bar (there for the still active theaters) and some even grabbed some popcorn on the way in. It was such a fun touch that made the day feel a little more special! Afterwards the bridal party hopped on a party bus for a fun ride around downtown before finishing with some portraits at Armature.

And speaking of Armature, we were SO excited to finally have our first wedding there after the first few were rescheduled last year. The space is beautiful, with tons of exposed brick and the most amazing chandeliers that hang from the crazy high ceilings. It was the perfect mix of urban and elegant, and we already can’t wait to be back there again. ESPECIALLY if the dance parties that ensue there are always like Ramy and Josh’s, which started with a traditional Filipino money dance and then really kicked off from there.

Ramy and Josh, we loved spending this day by your sides and hope you love these sneak peeks every bit as much!

Love + Laughs,

Sarah & Ben
