Ironclad Brewery will ALWAYS be one of my favorite places for a wedding. After working here as a bartender for 3 years, every time I get to come back and photograph here makes me happy. And the BEST PART about Michaela and Amber is how we met. So they had booked me online and we didn’t get a chance to meet first, and then my friends and I decided to have a group birthday party where we all did a granny-themed bar crawl downtown. I’m standing at Ironclad, on a scavenger hunt, ordering shots, and the two granny’s next to me start talking about how great of a spot Ironclad is for weddings. And I chimed in and said I agreed, that I used to work here, but now I just photograph weddings here. And they both stared at me and said, wait, are you Lightbloom? So. We met while drinking, on a bar crawl scavenger hunt, dressed as grandma’s, and then we took shots together. I don’t think I’ll ever top that story on how I met my clients. LOL.

But anyway back to their actual wedding day. I had the absolute best time with these two and I will never forget the moment that they walked down the aisle together officially as Mrs and Mrs… and they played “I kissed a girl” by Katy Perry on the walk out. Literally the best. Thankful for amazing clients like these two, with amazing leather jackets, amazing senses of humor, and amazing taste in photographers, if I do say so myself :)
