Willow Creek Winery is a gorgeous unique wedding venue located in Cape May, New Jersey. Its property features some stunning vineyards which look absolutely beautiful and vibrant on photos. The main reception room at the winery has a very elegant rustic look with its wooden beams and sparkly chandeliers.
This photo was taken at one of the Willow Creek Winery wedding receptions that we had a privilege to photograph at the end of September. The dance floor was just announced opened and the party atmosphere filled the space. I must admit that the venue provided some absolutely fabulous uplighting that added so much vibrancy and richness to the wedding reception photographs. As wedding photographers, we are often asked what uplighting color usually looks the best on photographs. From our experience, you cannot go wrong with red, purple, pink, blue, yellow and orange. We would recommend to stay away from green. The reception uplighting also has to be well coordinated with the overall look and color scheme of your wedding decor as the color mismatch will be noticed right away on your photographs. A beautiful uplighting can transform even the most boring and low-key reception space to a more interesting, vibrant and elegant one.
To lit this scene, we used one off camera flash to the camera's right.
