You just *know* it is going to be a good day when you walk into the bride’s getting ready room, and the first thing you hear is Top 40 music and laughter from the bride and her bridesmaids. This precisely sets the scene for the start of Courtney and Chris’s wedding day. Except, not only were Courtney’s bridesmaids part of the getting ready scene, but also an entourage of her other friends and family. It was obvious how absolutely adored Courtney is by the amount of people who popped their head into the room to say hi, to help with the day’s tasks, and to take pictures. I can see why she is adored so much- not only is she caring (she offered us food not even five seconds after we entered the room!) but also helpful, and absolutely hysterical. I got the biggest kick watching her shoo Barry away when he tried to help her move chairs and other heavy objects to declutter the room for pictures. Then she turned around and helped to apply the Junior Bridesmaid’s makeup. All done with her bright and beautiful smile. Who doesn’t love an independent, energetic, “go getter” woman?!
Chris is just as loveable with his genuine smile, relaxed demeanor, and can-do attitude. When he wraps his arms around his bride, they fit perfectly together. His expression of excitement as he watched Courtney walk down the aisle will always be unforgettable- it was a mix of his jaw dropping to the floor, his eyes wide open in awe, and his huge smile that boasted “that’s my bride!” And out of amazement, he carried this expression the entire time Courtney walked down the aisle at Heinz Chapel. So adorably sweet.
