I’ve got yet another beautiful wedding to share with you today! We celebrated Ariana and Brandon with a very intimate ceremony consisting of their family and a few close friends. Their wedding day may not have been 100% what they planned, but an intimate wedding at Wartburg (where they first met!) was the perfect way to celebrate their love. I’m so grateful to have been a part of it!
Ariana has such a flair for detail! Since their engagement session last October, she’s kept me updated on all the things she’s been planning. When she picked out her wedding dress, I got a text with her in this beautiful gown! We both couldn’t express more how much we were looking forward to this day. A few weeks later she sent me a photo of her gorgeous beaded Bella Belle shoes. I think every bride should have a beautiful pair of shoes that fit their style!
Even before they had to make the decision to modify their wedding day, Ariana sent me a message to let me know they were still getting married the day they planned, even if it didn’t look like their original plan. I love and appreciate her open communication between us!
Ariana and Brandon, thank you for trusting me with your day! I know you had so much planned for this day that wasn’t able to happen, but the intimate time with your family will be a dear memory forever. AND we still get to celebrate again next year! You get the best of both worlds with and intimate celebration now and something bigger next year! Who else gets to wear their dress twice?! Keep enjoying your mini-moon, I can’t wait to send you your full gallery when you get back!
