Kristin and Alicia Ridge Wedding at The Branford House
Okay, so whats better than an amazing Bride and Groom? Two Amazing Brides! Double the beautiful details! And to top it off, the most infectious laughter. I mean really, I was shooting on a 200mm lens from far away, and I hear one laugh, and another laugh, and all I could do was laugh too! Their entire day was no different, smiles across the board!
To give you an idea of how awesome they are, I just straight up copy and pasted their advice to couples planning their wedding day. Most couples say the same thing, but these two worded it perfectly.
It’s a marriage, not a wedding. Don’t lose sight of your partner when you’re planning. The process can be stressful but if you keep you and your relationship in the forefront of all of your decisions (and not “They,” you know, whoever “they” are who we all care so much about), I think you’ll end up actually enjoying the planning process. I also think doing that helped us to not be stressed out on our day. These were all our choices that we felt good about, we had awesome vendors who we were confident would pull the day together, and then we just made the choice to enjoy our day no matter what bumps might come up. It goes by in a flash; it’s not worth sacrificing any of your time that day stressing or worrying about something that your guests probably won’t even notice. I told Alicia over and over that as long as she and the JP showed up, it would be the perfect day for me.
Their entire day was perfect for so many reasons, and the above statement just shows it. With personal touches from start to finish, the day was not only original, but personal.
I could go on and on about how much love filled the room when these two walked in, but I don’t even think I could possibly do it justice with words! Instead, enjoy some of their photos from their big day!
Big thanks you all the vendors who took part in the big day!
