I was so excited to photograph at the Speakeasy on State in Redlands California, what a beautiful location and this couple is so special, their love surrounds them, their joy radiates from them.
The Speakeasy is a true speakeasy complete with red light to warn patrons the cops had arrive and to make a run for it, the escape trap door has been sealed up but you can still see where it was. The main door has a peep hole and a shotgun hole, for safety. The space is just wonderful. I love the brick walls in the ceremony area with windows along one wall letting in beautiful northern light, real hard wood floors throughout the space, everywhere touches of history. The owner/managers are really nice and easy to work with, I want to photograph here a lot more, really wonderful space.
Location: Speakeasy on State, 10 E State Street Suite 200-202.
