Industrial and Chic Wedding at Cork Factory Hotel • Aaren Lee Photography


Monday just got a whole lot prettier! This gorgeous wedding from Aaren Lee Photography at the Cork Factory Hotel is truly one of a kind. Effortless, chic and totally thoughtful, we love the way Alex + Ben made the day completely their own. And you'd never know that heavy rains and winds from Hurricane Joaquin were threatening their day. These two smiled big and enjoyed every moment... exactly the way your wedding day should be!

From Aaren: Alex and Ben. What on earth can I REALLY say about Alex and Ben that will do them or their day justice? Hurricane Joaquin came and went without REALLY touching us, but it did leave a nice trail of heavy rain and crazy wind in it's wake. Didn't phase these two one bit! Thankfully, the Cork Factory Hotel has quite a few nooks and crannies that allowed for some pretty one-of-a-kind portraits! From tri-toned floral robes and heirloom pearl necklaces to chic new watches, succulents galore and two of the biggest smiles I've EVER seen in my whole life, this wedding was incredibly detailed and incredibly special. I'm not quite sure if I ever saw Alex break down and cry like she promised she would, but it was clear from each speech that was given just how loved and treasured this union was to all in attendance. Despite doing my best to keep it together as their day unfolded (I've definitely been known to shed some tears behind the camera during father/daughter dances), even I had to succumb to the tears (actually, just full on ugly crying if I'm being real honest) during Mama Lee's thank you speech to all of the vendors that shared their talents to make her daughter's day special. I love these guys, and I hope you do too.
