If you are looking for a unique and historic venue to have your wedding, there isn't a better spot than the Union. The possibilities for photos are endless, with a wide variety of indoor and outdoor locations. I feel like I could shoot there many, many times before running out of great new places to take portraits. The staff was friendly, and there was cool water in the lobby to keep us hydrated during the warm day of photographing.
