This past June, we had the chance to spend a very special day with two extraordinary people. Kristen and Patrick are the real deal. This is one couple who knows how to love. They love their friends and family, they are passionate about their careers and education, and they know how to throw one heck of a party! Most of all, they know how to love each other- fiercely.
When I stepped into the bridal suite that morning, I saw a calm, confident bride. Kristen was positively beaming from the very start of her wedding day!
I loved that Kristen chose a custom hanger from Etsy for her wedding dress! These are so cute!
I saw these gorgeous bangles from BHLDN and died. Kristen has STYLE!
Darrin over at Daily Darrinity did a fabulous job on these unique orange and navy flowers. The stole the show.
My heart melted when Kristen's little flower girl looked up at her beautiful Auntie in awe as she slipped on her wedding dress. This is one of my favorite wedding images ever.
I love this. Many brides like to choose a special wedding day perfume, so whenever they wear it again, they immediately remember their wedding day. Kristen went with classic Chanel Chance.
As I was with the ladies, Bryan captured the guys.
Kristen's Dad came to see his little girl when she was ready. And this is when I started crying that day!
When everyone was dressed, we went out with the bridal party- Bryan with the guys and me with the girls.
I also snagged some portraits of beautiful Kristen.
Kristen and Patrick chose to do a first look. I set up Patrick and walked Kristen over. They had a special, private moment together. It set the tone for the day- it was a sweet, intimate moment.
Then we moved on to some couple pics! These guys were pros right from the start. Every photo was like this- pretty much perfect!
Finally, we nabbed the rest of the bridal party for portraits before the ceremony. We wandered up and down the Prado for some gorgeous pics!
These flowers. I'm obsessed.
There are so many more amazing images to share from the beautiful ceremony and reception! I can't wait to show you!
