New Year’s Eve Weddings have much cause for celebration, and this Ogden Museum of Southern Art wedding in New Orleans, Louisiana was very exciting and nontraditional in a wonderful way. In a great alternative to traditional weddings, Michelle and Eric dressed together in side by side rooms, preparing together for the day that would begin the rest of their lives. The combination of the exposed wood beam ceilings that create a starburst effect high above the Patrick F. Taylor Library in the Ogden Museum and low lit candle light of the wedding ceremony was very elegant and romantic. I took this picture outside the old stone walls of the museum. To capture the full emotion and warmth of the moment, I used a long exposure to photograph “Love” written in the air with a sparkler and to add life to each of the sparklers in guests’ hands. The look in the bride and groom’s faces as they soak in each other’s love, their closest friends surrounding them with the glow from the flames…beautiful! Here is another example of sparklers and a long exposure.
