How often do you hear about a swing dance wedding? I met Emily through the Lindy Hop scene dancing and photographing Lindy Hop events around the country. She teaches swing dancing (among other dance forms) all over the world. Peter too is a dancer. When they reached out to me to photograph their Mercury Hall wedding I was very excited, being a dancer myself. Their swing dance wedding brought back memories of my own. It was a beautiful wedding, memories were shared, new memories made, and everyone danced the night away.
Emily was glowing the entire day, bursting through the seams with excitement. It was contagious!
Mercury Hall is a beautiful venue, and it’s a short drive from downtown Austin. The grounds are small, but include a canopy of green live oak trees year around.
Celebratory toast were had,and stories were shared to start the evening off right. Celebrating not only the two getting married, but also their family and friends coming together.
This Swing dance wedding was epic, you felt like you were on set for some Hollywood movie. Emily and Peter had a live swing band and many of their guests were also swing dancers. Everyone knew what to do, nobody skipped a beat like it was choreographed. Mercury Hall’s hard wood floors made a perfect dance floor.
This wedding definitely went down in our record books. It was our first swing dancing wedding, and hopefully not our last. Emily and Peter, swinging into the next chapter of their lives, picture perfect wedding.
