Someone in the industry once asked us a while back- who is your ideal couple!? That question perplexed us as it could have been answered in many different ways. However, after years of being in the wedding industry and figuring out what is most important to us now- it has come down to one thing: Our ideal couple is one that is (channeling our inner Darcy) completely, perfectly, & incandescently happy & in love. And friends, I am so thankful to share with you that Jon & Brianne… were just that. <3
Ever since our first consultation with Brianne, we knew something was different. There has been nothing but pure excitement as these two have prepared for their big day. And that showed so deeply on their wedding. Friends, we are so excited to share this beautiful wedding with you. We were blessed abundantly with dry weather during formal photos (even a few bursts of sunshine) on a day that was originally forecasted to downpour. God is so good! Brianne looked absolutely breathtaking and Jon was dashing as ever! And when he saw her…… *holding back tears even now!*
Jon & Brianne: We don’t even know where to begin! How about we start with HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRIANNE! We hope you are having the best time of your life on your Greece & Italy honeymoon as you begin your beautiful marriage adventures! We are so incredibly blessed by the love you have for others, your families, for God, and of course… for each other! Capturing your day was truly an honor and privilege and we hope you are able to cherish these images for a lifetime. It was so wonderful to see the beautiful legacies of love you have both come from and the legacy that you are starting together. We love you guys to the moon!
Here’s a little fun behind the scenes from the day!
^We LOVED working with Chris & Tiffany from Long Light Productions!!!! Such a fun team!
Shooting a wedding at nine months pregnant feels like one of my greatest accomplishments in life! I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support and understanding of the incredible vendor team, the amazing wedding guests, Jon & Brianne just being so so great, their wonderful families, and of course my sweet man and our awesome to-the-rescue third shooter Kaitlyn from Kaitlyn Elise Photo!
Capturing wedding day love stories with you is my favorite thing! <3
The whole wedding vendor team involved in Jon & Brianne’s day was a dream to work with! Kim from Swoon Floral Design created the most beautiful spring arrangements. Kristen from Abbey Road Farms was absolutely lovely and so great at accommodating this 9 month pregnant photographer with a golf cart to utilize throughout the day. A special thanks to Melissa from Griffin Event Management– she did an exceptional job with all the planning, preparing, and coordinating of their day and was an absolute joy to work with. So many more incredible vendors from our videographer friends from Long Light Productions, DJ Zeek from Ultimate Entertainment, Meagan from Pearl Catering, HMUA Stephanie from Blossom & Beauty, and such a gorgeous cake from Just a Dash! Truly a DREAM TEAM!
