THESE TWO! They worked so hard on this beautiful creation of a wedding, and it blossomed. I was so excited to shoot this one, like my wife Hayley and I, Erica and Brandon built this one from the ground up and all the love surrounding them could be seen for miles. Erica was really one of the most calm brides I’ve seen, more looking forward to the celebration than worrying about the present. Brandon had just enormous smiles before the ceremony, I could sense his nerves just a little bit. The day was joyous and full of color. Erica’s mom was very sweetly emotional, and her bridesmaids were cool and spirited. Brandon’s boys were congratulatory and very much enjoying the moments. Brandon pulled the old, I-can’t-find-my-vows prank and it wasn’t a prank. He killed it from memory and from the heart. There were so many special touches. Everything felt at ease and thematic with the 1920’s echoes. And the dancing.. These people danced! I loved this wedding. And can I just say how super gorgeous Erica looked. It was so beautiful to witness. I am so happy they let me be a part, they deserve 20 lifetimes of beauty and love.
Some other people they let be a part:
Samantha Pellicano as my awesome second shooter!
Stylist Kristi Lyn Flannagan and her team did the hair that would. not. quit. Perfect.
MUA Kamila Wysocka brought the lusciousness in Makeup, tears and all, nailed it.
