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…
My kind of shoes- ROSE GOLD HEELS!
Brittany is so cute! Her thumbs-up moments happened a few times during the day, and it was such a perfect expression of her fun personality!
And he sees his little girl for the first time in her wedding dress…
This picture may be my favorite from the Getting Ready part of the day. Brittany is so close with her family, and it really shows in this image. Such a cute moment!
These ladies are. Drop. Dead. Gorgeous.
I may have laid on the sidewalk to get this shot. In my pencil skirt.
Love the bicycle cuff link!
There was a natural back light that was to die for during the ceremony!
Those chandeliers set such a gorgeous backdrop!
