Ben and Shelby – Wedding on the Queen Mary

Weddings by Shani Barel Photography
I don’t know if I had mentioned how large the Queen Mary is – when I arrived at the parking lot, I realised it was quite the BOAT. We had already shot the engagement shoot the previous week – so I knew my way around a little bit….But still – seeing the vintage inspired wedding come alive in such a beautiful setting was like taking a short trip in a time machine….Shelby wore the dress her mother wore and later changed to one made by her mom – Mary – aswell as the bridesmaids dresses! so of course we had to run around the boat documenting that too…. Most important – throughout the day – watching Ben and Shelby’s love for each other – having fun on their dream wedding day – completely engaged with each other and their role for the day – was inspiring and fun! A modern true love from an era of big love stories!Thank you BEn and Shelby for taking me on this journey!
