Brittany and Dan | Oakmont Country Club Wedding

Walking through the doors of Brittany’s getting ready room, we were immersed in a flurry of bridesmaids with matching white sweats and navy blue tank tops, grabbing finger foods for lunch and watching the beautiful bride get her final touches of makeup.  I have so many favorite parts to a wedding day, and the building excitement as the bride gets ready is always one of them.  It is fun to hear the girls chattering and laughing with the bride, and to watch their expressions when they see the bride in her dress for the first time.

Brittany’s getting ready time was chock-full of some of my favorite moments.  Brittany lined up the bridesmaids to see them all in their dresses, and then continued to build the excitement by having a “team huddle” with all of the bridesmaids before she left to put on her wedding dress.   Brittany was as excited to see her ladies in their dresses as she was to put on her dress.  So all-inclusive. What a sweetheart!

There were so many other sweet moments throughout Dan and Brittany’s wedding day! These two are so in love.  If you had never met them before, you would only need to watch them for a minute to see what I mean. When the two look at each other, their smiles get *that* much bigger.  I loved watching the impromptu kisses that Dan gave Brittany in between the pictures we took.  I loved their expressions of sheer excitement when they were announced as husband and wife at the end of the ceremony.   The love just radiates off of them!  It warms my heart.

Take a look to see what I mean…
