Babylon, a fairly new restaurant carved into an old historic building right downtown where Capital Blvd splits into Dawson and McDowell. The architecture is amazing and I can see why Brooke and Brian are attracted to it. Babylon serves authentic Moroccan cuisine and the courtyard with a large water feature really called to Brooke and Brian--she with a degree in design and he with a degree in architecture--for their wedding venue. And so it was on March 31, 2012 that we all gathered to get these two people married!
Phillip Jefferson, himself an architect, and also an oboist whom I had come to know from weddings. When he and Greg Dixon on keyboard team up to do the music for a wedding ceremony, it is really something special. It is not often you hear an oboe at a wedding and the sound is simply magical. It was really fitting for this dream wedding. Thank you, Phillip!
Inside the restaurant getting ready for the ceremony to begin. Brooke's dress was spectacular as you will see in more photos.
Here comes the bride!
Always Autumn Studios was doing the photography. Here you see his second shooter on the left. After the ceremony the guests were invited to go to Seven where the reception was held. The wedding party and close relatives hung back for photos.
