And Those Dresses!

From Arte de Vie: I could not get enough of the flower girls — they were precious! And their dresses! Do they make those in adult sizes? I was in love! I also loved the girls’ enthusiasm while Annie was getting dressed. They wanted to be a part of everything, and they were so curious. They’ll make great bridesmaids someday!

Cool Calm & Collected

What an amazing wedding! Annie and Brad are a pair that did not lack energy that’s for sure! It’s one of the traits that initially drew me to both of them. They are motivated, kind individuals that exude confidence and positivity in the best way possible. On the wedding day they were surrounded by their closest friends and family, which we knew early on was very important for them.

Swan Dive & Sparkler Exit Surprise

Huge inflatable swans were in the pool that the bride and groom later jumped on, wedding gown and all, and a departure for the record books! As Annie and Brad ran through the sparklers, Annie was met with a sparkling brand new Jeep at the end of the tunnel. She stopped, gasped, and turned back to look at Brad, who was beaming that his surprise went so well.
