This wedding… this wedding was a little extra special to me. I’ve known the groom since he was 15 and I was living in Belgium serving as a student missionary and working with his parents. This family basically IS family to me so, when Brandon found Celeste and decided that she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, well, I was as happy as if I really was his sister!
Celeste is as sweet as can be and as precious as she is, she somehow gets Brandon like no one else can. And that’s what makes them just perfect for each other.
She couldn’t stop smiling as she was getting ready for their First Look… and he was nervous to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day. Let’s just say that there were tears from all three of us when he turned around to see how beautiful she was. But after that? They could NOT stop smiling and laughing with each other!
The day was so full of joy and love and family and friends and I’m beyond thrilled to share my favorites from the day! Celeste and Brandon, thank you guys so much for letting me capture your day. I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else last Saturday and I’m thankful to call you family! Love you!
Nell, I still can’t believe you made wedding dresses for BOTH of your children’s weddings!
I know they were both a labor of love, but I hope you know how AMAZING of a job you did!
Not only did her mother-in-law make her dress, but her mom made her veil and wedding cake!
These are two incredibly talented families…
B, I know you aren’t a fan of having your photo taken, but thank you for letting me photograph your wedding day!
Her mom, mother-in-law, and soon to be step-daughter all in one photo. This might be one of my all time favorite photos.
Oh Celeste… you are SO beautiful!
They may kill me for posting this photo, but I just had to!
Oh my gosh, so in love with this one…
The Kilburnie Inn at Craig Farm is GORGEOUS!
Celeste had two requests of her dress… that it made noise when she walked and that it twirled when she danced.
Nell was able to make both things happen!
SO many thanks to friends and family and the vendors that made this day so special!
