Tempesst + Alix | Classic Vintage Sioux City Orpheum Wedding

If you are looking for inspiration for a classic and vintage wedding, you need to see this wedding. I was so excited to photograph Tempesst and Alix’s wedding in the beautifully ornate Sioux City Orpheum! From it’s chandelier’s to the amazing marquee I had so many ideas in my head. I was excited to shoot something that was a little different from what I normally shoot, so I could experiment a little bit. I was also excited to photograph the day for Tempesst and Alix because they would be celebrating with a Jewish ceremony, which I had never had the pleasure of photographing before. It was so cool to be able to see a different type of ceremony and I loved to see the traditions.

As far as details go, Tempesst had it all. Badgley Mischka shoes, her mother’s pearls, a beautiful rosary belonging to her grandmother and an amazing vintage 1946 dress. The dress she wore for the photos and ceremony belonged to her grandma, who can’t wait to show the pictures to her bridge club, so I’m told. At the reception, Tempesst did a reception dress that was giving me such 50’s vibes, especially after she swept her hair up into a ponytail. I knew we had to get some spinning shots in the dress under the marquee and I squealed when I saw the result.

Ok, enough chitter chatter, let’s get to the photos!
