Cafe Brauer Wedding Day – Emma & Peter
The thing I think about the most when I reminisce about Emma & Peter’s Cafe Brauer wedding day is how they stayed true to the type of day they wanted for themselves. Most of all, they wanted to simply enjoy time with friends & family, without all of the bells and whistles (and logistics) of a complicated day. They made sure they were still able to enjoy some time alone for each other – even without seeing each other before the ceremony – by keep photos limited to the beautiful area around Cafe Brauer. This meant we went straight from their ceremony at St Michael’s in Old Town straight over to the perfect summer boardwalk behind Cafe Brauer. Keeping their wedding party to only family members, they were able to enjoy a little quiet time alone and still enjoy their full cocktail hour without making guests wait in between the ceremony and enjoying cocktails. It’s was beautiful and refined while also laid back and relaxed – just like these two.
A huge thanks to Megan with MW weddings for making sure this day went exactly how Emma & Peter dreamed!
