Back in high school (over 10 years ago, which I really cannot believe!), Matt and I rode the bus to school together. He was a few years younger than me, so I never had the chance to get to know him then. Fast forward to now when my mom and his mom work together, and I was excited when they contacted us to talk about wedding photography! After meeting over coffee with Matt and his gorgeous fiance Brittney - a charming, organized, sweet pre-school teacher, as well doing their engagement session and photographing Brittney's bridals, Thomas and I were both SO excited to be a part of their wedding! They make a perfect pair. Matt loves Brittney's electric personality and the way she lights up the room with her smile. Brittney loves how passionate, hardworking, and goofy Matt is. Their joy and the way that have so much fun just being around one another was contagious!
Everything about their wedding day was stunning, as I imagined it would be after talking to Brittney about all the details. I loved seeing her vision come together. I especially loved the neutral colors, her dress (!!!), the adorable floral robes for getting ready, the historic church with beautiful woodwork, and the Kate Spade shoes with bows!
Thomas and I had so many favorite moments throughout the day! Her first look with her dad. Her "first touch" with Matt where they held hands around the door of the church and prayed together before the ceremony. Matt's teary-eyed look as Brittney walked down the aisle with her dad. So much sweetness!! And their reception was a BLAST! They told us to look forward to a party because their families are both so fun, and it definitely was a party! There was a huge crowd on the dance floor the entire night, and it made it so much fun for us! Also, the Big Chill (the reception venue) was really unique because there were spotlights on for the dances and speeches, making for more dramatic pictures than our usual style, and I'm kind of loving it! Their exit incorporated purple and gold pom poms because they attended and met at ECU, the perfect finishing touch, and with that they were off for a Jamaican honeymoon!
Enjoy the pictures of those moments and the rest of their beautiful day! :)
