Daniel and Celine were married on February 9th at the historic Sacred Heart Cultural Center in Downtown Augusta, GA. The church was built in 1897 and held its first mass in 1900! Unfortunately, due to a number of factors the last mass was held in Sacred Heart on July 3, 1971. The building was reopened in 1987. The structure now serves as a unique venue for social and cultural events such as art exhibitions, theatrical events, an annual Garden Festival, choral concerts and is rented continuously throughout the year for celebrations, and civic functions.
This was my first time photographing any event at the Cultural Center. It was absolutely beautiful and a great location to have a ceremony and reception for your wedding. Daniel and Celine are currently living in Taiwan and this would be their second wedding for Daniel’s family and friends here in Augusta, GA. They were both so easy going throughout the day, it really helped bring out more of my artistic side. Usually a wedding has multiple locations with time restraints, this brings common pressures as a wedding photographer which I have come to expect and work well under. However, there was little to no pressure during the Eyrich Wedding and I couldn’t have been more appreciative of it.
One take away during the wedding was when I began getting family ready for portrait shots, I was told there were 11 siblings in Daniel’s family! Posing them all in one big shot was a challenge but I think I knocked it out of the park. Also, his family can really dance! They were doing many coordinated dances as you will see in the photos below. I really enjoyed being a spectator to this.
I want to wish Daniel and Celine many years of love and companionship. No matter where they are their love will shine bright to those who know them and are touched by them.
Here are some photos of their day:
