Brandi’s father took the mic right before their first dance, and he shared…. All the while holding back tears… “Ever since Brandi was a little girl, she had a dream of being a Disney Princess. Well, today, that dream came true when she married the love of her life… her Prince.” And a princess at that she was <3
Brandi and Sam’s wedding day has been one we have waited for ever since we first met them. We see so much LOVE, doing what we do…. Telling couples’ love stories through still images. During Brandi & Sam’s Portland waterfront engagement session (link here), we could FEEL that love. We knew their wedding day was going to be something extremely special, and friends, it truly was. We arrived to the gorgeous Abernathy Center midday. Sean went directly to hang with the guys (as always!) and I began taking pictures of all their pretty details.
Brandi, cute as ever in her little white lace sundress, was finishing up all the final necessities before getting on THE white dress. Once she was in her breathtaking gown, Abernathy’s wonderful Day-of-Coordinator drove us in the golf cart to their private garden to await the arrival of Brand’s Prince Charming. And when he saw her, that same love we felt so strongly during their engagement session, was only MAGNIFIED. As he grabbed her in his arms, they couldn’t hold back their ear-to-ear smiles. They were so in love, so excited, and so ready to be Husband and Wife.
Brandi & Sam: Everything about your wedding day was truly a dream! The weather, the venue, the team making everything all come together, your flowers, your dress, your PEOPLE… everything. We had so much fun capturing your day, so much fun being apart of your love story, and we hope that these images tell just that: your beautiful love story. We love you guys, and we hope to see you both again super soon! So thankful to have had the privilege of capturing your wedding day- thank you for trusting us to do so! We hope you cherish these images forever, and we can’t wait to deliver your full gallery in a few weeks. We love you both to the moon and back!
