Brian and Payten first met in 2006, but despite their initial spark, they didn’t officially start dating until Payten’s nineteenth birthday. In the next six years, their love grew exponentially for each other until Brian surprised Payten with what was supposed to be a Mother’s Day photo shoot for their moms, but in reality, it was a perfectly planned proposal for Payten.
These beautiful photo pendants were added to the bride and groom's bouquet and boutonnière; this is such a sweet and practical way to keep a piece of their loved ones with them at all times!
Tuscan Rose Vineyards was the perfect place for this chic garden-inspired wedding. The venue offered much help and support when Payten’s family was rocked by the loss of her brother and father so close to their wedding date. The vineyard not only created a romantic venue for the wedding, but includes in-house planning and florals in their services. To honor her brother and father on her wedding day, a giant floral wreath was created and dedicated to them, welcoming all guests to the entrance.
The juxtaposition of these lavender bridesmaids' dresses against the clean and modern black groomsmen suits was both so classic and playful!
There wasn't a dry eye as Payten's mom and brother walked her down the aisle. Brian was blown away by the strength and beauty of his bride! Even though it had rained earlier that day, the sun shined bright from ceremony start to finish.
