I am so excited to introduce you guys to Brandon and Blair! These two just make your heart melt when you see them together! They are absolutely adorable together and I love how much they adore each other! Brandon gives Blair forehead kisses without my prompting (I mean, come on!) and Blair lights up when she is with him. Her smile is beautiful already, but add Brandon to the mix, and it’s beaming! I am so happy for this couple!
Their wedding day this past Saturday was a mix of sun, clouds, and rain, but my goodness, it really was a beautiful day for the most part! I think we all expected unbearable July heat, but it was quite pleasant actually! We were all so thankful! It allowed us to pop outside for more portraits than we expected to be able to take! Yay! Early on in planning, Blair mentioned to me how much she loved the architecture of the buildings at the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. She expressed her desire to have more of the columns and buildings featured in her photos, even more than the gardens themselves. It’s so easy to get on board with that when you have SUCH a stunning venue! I loved changing things up and doing a majority of their portraits featuring the venue!
Brandon and Blair changed things up a little more and got married inside of the Carriage House instead of the typical outdoor garden wedding. And that ceremony couldn’t have been more stunning! I think they made the right call! The Carriage House was the perfect space for this wedding and it was our first time shooting in that room, believe it or not. I loved watching Blair walk down the aisle towards Brandon, her face just beaming. And I loved the joy on their faces after they were pronounced husband and wife. I’m smiling just thinking about it! After that, the reception was underway and it was such a fun time! Besides the epic choreographed dance that Brandon did with his mom, Metropolitan Disc Jockey kept the dance floor full all night long! Their planner, Kathleen, and I kept commenting about how much FUN everyone was having. It was a blast to watch and photograph! Just wait til you see their reception photos!
Will and I so enjoyed spending time with Brandon and Blair and their families and friends. It was a really fun group that made our job super easy! Everyone was so excited and supportive of Brandon and Blair… you could see it on everyone’s faces how thrilled they were for them. That makes my heart happy because those two deserve all the happiness in the world.
Brandon and Blair, we are so honored that you chose us to capture your day for you! We are thrilled for you guys and I am so excited to show you a few of my favorite photos from your wedding day! :)
