Congrats to Sarah and Brandon, a Newport Aquarium Wedding
It has been so much fun getting to know these two over the past year! From a Kate Spade inspired 30th birthday photo session to their engagement including their adorable dog Gadget to having Sarah help with hair behind the scenes – it has been so fun to become friends. I couldn’t be happier for these two. They both are dedicated to what they do and their family and friends. And if you couldn’t tell Brandon is a fireman – don’t you just love his cake cutter? Sarah put so much time into planning the wedding (with a lot of Hobby Lobby trips) so I was excited to see everything come together. Don’t you just love the colors! One of my favorite parts of the day was when we were walking over from the hotel to the aquarium. It wasn’t raining (which if you know this couple – it always rains when they go camping or plan their engagement session) but it was a little chilly. So Sarah just picked up her skirt to keep her warm. That is exactly the spirit of Sarah – she makes it work and has fun! During the ceremony I loved seeing Brandon’s face! I think he was trying really hard to keep it together! I know I was trying not to cry. And my favorite part of the reception was icing the groom during the garter toss (for those unfamiliar with the term, icing it is when you hide a Smirnoff ice somewhere and the person, upon discovering it, has to chug it then and there on one knee). What a fun surprise. Sarah and Brandon thank you for picking us to document your incredible celebration. It has been so much fun and I am so glad to know you both! We hope you will enjoy your sneak peek!
A big thanks to all those behind the scenes who made this day the best!
