As Ashley and I walked into the DoubleTree Hilton, I could feel my stomach fill with excited butterflies because even if the day didn’t look like originally planned, my sweet friend, Brittany, was about to marry the love of her life!! The forecast called for thunderstorms, but after a half hour in the hotel rooms, the rain cleared and the day was sunny and gorgeous!
We started with Brittany, getting details of her and her girls and celebrating with some champagne and mimosas, then moved to clink some beers with Trevor down the hall (very strategically making sure this pair did not see each other)! Little Charlie was precious, running back and forth from mom and dad, drinking his milk in his adorable little suspenders! It is so crazy to think he is already so big from our maternity shoot with B&T!
After we got some fun portraits with the boys so they could head towards the ceremony, we grabbed some precious moments of Brittany getting on her dress with help from her mama and bestie! We then walked a little ways downtown to the courthouse to take photos of these gorgeous ladies, and on the way, had numerous people open their windows to congratulate our bride!! She looked so gorgeous!
We took a little car ride over to Fowler, Ohio, where Trevor’s family had set up the most gorgeous ceremony and reception for these two in their backyard (not to mention, the food was AMAZING)! These two had tears in their eyes as their little man made his way down the aisle and they finally became man and wife!
From the cake cutting, to the dancing, to the first dances, every part of the reception was filled with laughter and tender moments. They even got iced by the bridesmaids – too funny!! It was so clear how loved these two are by everyone who came, and even more how much they truly love each other! Charlie got some cute photos with mom and dad after his nap (which I was slightly jealous of – haha!). Their little family is just adorable!! By the end of the night, the guys had a little surprise for Trevor and pushed him in the pool, which truly shows how light-hearted this group is. Their wedding day was a true celebration of what love really looks like – even if it wasn’t as planned.
Their love was more important than anything else, and I think the day could not have been any prettier!! Brittany and Trevor, knowing you both is such a blessing, and I am honored to have gotten to watch you two say, “I do!” Here’s to all the years ahead and to even more cute kiddos just like Charlie *hint hint*
I love you both!! Congratulations!!
