Memorable Details

“Simple and easy” was the wedding motto making it a perfect fit for an all-inclusive wedding the Kimpton Cardinal. With nearly every nook in the hotel a picture-perfect backdrop, the couple found plenty of perfectly lit places for their wedding day shoot. And on top of that, every detail came together perfectly on the big day: from mimosas and gin gimlets with her bridesmaids, and the couple’s “first look” on the Cardinal’s 20th floor, to the wedding ceremony in the Lexington Ballroom; everything came out picture perfect. After the reception in the Magnolia Room, the celebrating continued at the Katharine Bar, where guests continued to celebrate and feast late into the night.

"Being able to stay at the hotel the night before, get ready there, have our wedding, and not have to leave til the next morning really was quite perfect!"

We decided to do a first look on the 20th floor since the lighting was so gorgeous up there.

As someone who records magical wedding moments for a living, Brittany noticed every detail. We were beyond thrilled when she told us that her own wedding day was “seamless, organized and stress-free” thanks to the “attention to detail and level of execution” by the Cardinal staff. It was our honor, Brittany, and we hope to see you again, when you return to capture the magic for other beautiful couples.
