Ever since Breanna was a little girl, Bella Brides was THE dress shop in Bend that every bride would find their wedding gown at. Even though she no longer lived there, she knew without a doubt that that’s where she had to get her dress when her special time came around. And friends…. Just wait till you see this STUNNING Bella Brides gown :O
Breanna & Ben’s wedding was one that of course we were extremely excited about. Not only do we LOVE the two of them, but it was so special for us to serve them during this time as in their everyday life- they are constantly serving others. Ben serves others by being a first responder and a fire fighter!! WHOA! I remember when we were on their engagement session, I was super pregnant and of course the thought of “I hope I don’t go into labor tonight” was present. However, that was quickly diminished knowing that if I would have, we were in good hands knowing that Ben would have been more than capable to deliver Owen haha! And sweet Breanna… she just recently changed positions from being an adoption consultant within the foster care system to now being a family counselor. I can’t even imagine the difficult situations she is dealing with on an daily basis, but I know she does it with such grace and selflessness. They are literally our heroes you guys!!!
With that said, it was truly a gift to capture such an incredible day. Before God and their families, Breanna & Ben said their “I Do’s” and became one. We adored all of their family and the legacies that they have set forth. God is so good, and He was truly honored on this day!
Breanna & Ben: Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for choosing us to photograph such an important time in your lives. We are abundantly blessed to know you both and to have had the opportunity to serve you guys on your wedding day! We love you and hope that you had the most incredible honeymoon in Jamaica! <3
