I really love the drama that the Capitol Theatre offered for this wedding.  Although the theatre is in rough shape, it is very old and everything is mismatched, the walls were peeling, the lighting was a huge task but although finding lighting for a bride was challenging here, I was in love with the contrasting shadows, the stage lighting, the soft filtered light from the old dirty windows with worn out curtains, it was really much more interesting than flat room light. Upstairs of the theatre was a labyrinth of rooms that I had no idea were there, a green room and a couple of dressing rooms now turned storage areas. I had to draw upon memories of old movies and feel what magical history these old rooms hold and try to visualize what sort of things may have gone on inside those walls during the theatre’s heydays of the 30’s and 40’s.

After the wedding, the reception was just a few blocks away at the Heritage Room. Catered by Occasions Catering.
