I’m a biased photographer in thinking that all my weddings are beautiful in their own perfect way. Sometimes a gorgeous venue or styling does the trick. Sometimes the beauty is when a bride and groom forego what’s traditional and expected and make the day a perfect reflection of their relationship. Sometimes it’s just a loving atmosphere filled to the brim with family and friends. And sometimes, you get really lucky and get a mish-mash of different kinds of beautiful that creates something amazing.
This was one of those weddings.
From the incredible outdoor ceremony, to the horse-drawn carriage, to the amazing room transformation (shoutout to Elizabeth Wray Designs for doing such a great job), this wedding was just one visual feast after another.
And that would have been enough…. but Brittany and Joe together! Even better than the grounds and gorgeous touches. Do you see how much they were laughing all day in these photos? Did you see Joe’s reaction at the first look?! Kills me. Joy is the best thing to take photos of, and it was everywhere.
