Elysian LA NYE Wedding Photographer – Gretchen + Bryan

New Year’s Eve was so cold, at least by LA standards. But everything about Gretchen and Bryan’s wedding at Elysian completely warmed my heart – romantic glowing lights for the night time ceremony, hot cider and delicious food, loving toasts and lots of hugs. And then there was the dancing at the reception. Gretchen and Bryan were breaking it down all night, but there were also conga lines, a dance off with some impressive splits, and then Bryan’s amazing standing backflip! We all rung in the new year with champagne, sparklers, and fireworks at midnight. Such a great celebration and way to wrap up last year, and I’m so happy for these two!
