2019-06-27_0014.jpg
2019-06-27_0015.jpg

This is definitely one of my favorite toast photos ever. Look at these adorable sisters!! The maid of honor is Regina’s little sister who’s giving a speech, and the other bridesmaid leaning in is Marc’s sister. Just the cutest.

From Brittany:

Describe your wedding in 5 words:

Best Day of My Life

Funniest Wedding Memory:

During the garter removal, Bryan was rolling around on the floor to the Mission Impossible theme song, then he was having a hard time getting under the layers of my dress. It was too funny!

Emotional Memory:

I couldn't keep it together as we were reading the vows we had written for each other. The love in that moment was something I can't even describe. I fell in love with him even more, which I didn't think was even possible.

Advice for future Brides and Grooms:

Stop several times throughout the entire day and just take it all in. The day flies by faster than anyone can prepare you for.

From Bryan:

Describe your wedding in 5 words:

Best Day of My Life

Funniest Memory:

The two flower girls waited until the end to throw petals. One threw one petal and the other just started taking handfuls out at the end of the aisle.

Emotional Memory:

When I opened Brittany's gift. We had lost 2 of our dogs over the past year and a half. Brittany had their pictures engraved on cufflinks for me to wear so they could be with us.

Advice for future Brides and Grooms:

Take more time to spend together. You are so busy talking with guests and doing all of the procedural stuff that you don't have a lot of time to just spend together and enjoy the moment as husband and wife.

Whitney was such a gorgeous bride and I just loved the unique look of their wedding day details.

2019-06-21_0006.jpg

They’re married!! And so happy about it!

2019-06-21_0007.jpg

I’m kind of obsessed with their portraits. If you look close enough, you can see raindrops. We were SPRINTING through these portraits to avoid the rain. But they just kept giving me more and more cuteness!

2019-06-21_0008.jpg

LOOOVE all of these!

2019-06-18_0001.jpg
2019-06-18_0002.jpg

The photo on the right may or may not have tricked Ben (the GROOM) in thinking that it was an Instagram ad and not his very own bride when he first saw it :D Shy you are GORGEOUS!

2019-06-18_0003.jpg
2019-06-18_0004.jpg

One of my favorite parts of this day was how Schuyler incorporated her background story. She was adopted from Romania as a child and there were little touches all throughout the day to carry that with her. Like this embroidery in her dress of the words “I love you” in Romanian. Cue the tears.

2019-06-18_0007.jpg
2019-06-18_0005.jpg

Schuyler just stop it with all your gorgeousness already!
