A Couple’s Advice: Mr. & Mrs. Wolf
Who better to give advice and share their experience than a real life Daissy Torres and Lesner Inn couple! Not only did Mr & Mrs Wolf say I do at Lesner Inn, but they were also Daissy Torres 100th Wedding couple at the Lesner Inn! Keep reading to find out why they said “I do” to Daissy Torres and the Lesner Inn!
Why did you chose Lesner Inn as your wedding venue?
I went with the Lesner Inn as my venue because it encompassed everything I was looking for – an outdoor(ish) venue for the ceremony but a covered area for the reception. I knew I wanted to get married by the water and the Lesner Inn has the perfect view for just that! It’s nice because unlike if you get married on a beach, it’s private and you won’t have random people crashing your ceremony or in your photos. I also fell completely in love with the wall of windows upstairs making the reception hall look big and beautiful without it seeming like a town hall. That was very important to me! Lindsey (Lesner Inn Day of Coordinator) was great to work with as well! Like Daissy, she didn’t make me feel pressured to commit and gave me some time to think about my decision before actually making it. Lindsey was also very accommodating about all the little extra details I wanted to add in or bring with me to make my day as special as possible!
What advice would you give couples who are still looking for their wedding venue?
My advice for couples still looking for a venue is to check out the Lesner Inn! Not only is it breathtaking, but I loved that it took a lot of stress off of me for finding the little extra (and some big) things. They do their own catering and ABC license (super convenient) and they have several ‘add ons’ that you can rent for your day of. The only outside services I really needed to find was my photographer, florist, and DJ! They literally have just about everything else for you to rent or use! Lindsey, our Day of Coordinator, is super sweet and was great at responding to all of my crazy email questions as well. They even let my husband build something and bring in for us to use to make the projector screen more accessible. I highly encourage any couple looking for their venue to check out the Lesner Inn!
When looking for your wedding photographer what were some of the qualities you were looking for?
I was looking for someone that knew my venue inside and out! I also wanted someone that could handle my crazy husband and I and our ridiculous crew. I wanted someone who would not be afraid to tell me if an idea I had would not look right.
What made you choose Daissy Torres Photography?
I did my research and looked at Daissy’s portfolio before asking her to meet with me. I loved her photos and how she had so much experience with outdoor photos. I knew I wanted photographs outside and of course I wanted them to be perfect. When I met with Daissy she was EXTREMELY informative and absolutely knew her stuff. She sat and talked with me and my mom for about an hour/hour and a half during our first meetup. I asked her questions and she was able to answer every single one of them. She also did not pressure me into choosing her. She informed me that the more fun my crew was, the more pictures we were likely to get and I was sold!
How was it like working with Daissy Torres? What were some memorable moments?
Daissy makes you feel incredibly comfortable whether you are used to the camera or not. She understands poses and actions that will give you the absolute best photos. I have several favorite moments with Daissy, as she did our engagement shoot as well. She had asked us to walk towards her and pull each other close, well we definitely misinterpreted her and started this wrestling/pulling match. She laughed the entire time and we got some pretty funny photos out of it!
Also, during my wedding, I was trying to handle a couple of little mishaps and she pulled a few of my bridesmaids aside and said, “Leave Jessica alone, you guys need to figure this out for her.” I loved that she had NO PROBLEM taking charge to make sure my day was as stress free as possible.
Another great moment was this idea Daissy had for my first dance with my husband, she climbed up to the catwalk upstairs in the Lesner Inn and took photos of us dancing! They are so cool and unique, and I never would thought of doing that!
She also was great for me to ask questions/professional opinions! I was struggling with setting up my timeline and I sent her a rough draft of it and asked her what should be changed and she helped me figure it all out! The day went super smooth because of it.
How does it feel knowing you were the 100th wedding for Daissy Torres?
What advice would you give couples who are still looking for their photographer?
Obviously do your research but if you want someone that knows her stuff, will be 100% honest with you, and produce INCREDIBLE photographs, then call Daissy Torres Photography! She will work with you and your style. She is extremely fun loving but knows how to handle any monkey business your bridal party might bring to the big day.
