AHHH This wedding!! I knew I was going to absolutely love this day, for multiple reasons. 1. Alicia is my cousin, and is totally rad. Sweet as can be, absolutely gorgeous, and tons of fun. 2. Garret is not my cousin, but is equally sweet, not totally bad-looking, and kinda hilarious himself. 3. The dress. Need I say more?? 4. Their engagement session was rad, so I knew their wedding would be too. 5. THAT DRESS!!! So that’s a short summary of how I arrived at my feelings 😉
Alica was totally calm, and having a great time hanging out with her sisters during hair and makeup. Her makeup was already done by the time I had arrived, and it looked fantastic. The ladies at Gente Bella are awesome! And of course, Montana Bullied, did an AMAZING job on the girls’ hair! I love working with Montana. She’s creative, but chill, and does such a wonderful job! Once everyone was beautified and dressed, we headed off to a private residence for one of my favorite first looks everrrrr.
In the meantime, one of my favorite people, Kerensa , spent a few minutes with the guys before meeting us for the first look!
So. This first look. ohmagoodness. Alica wrote Garret a letter, and then waited behind him until he finished. Then he turned around, saw the girl he’d be spending the rest of his life with, his best friend, his soul mate, and they embraced like noone was watching. Best EVER.
Since this property is a dream to shoot at, we hung out for a bit, before making our way to Harrison for some photos before the ceremony!
I finally got to shoot a wedding at Shelby’s Pond , and it absolutely didn’t disappoint!! The owners are phenomenal, and the property is stunning!! Alicia & Garret did a beautiful job decorating, and once again, we had an amazing dinner provided by Cookies Grill ! The night was spent mingling, eating, drinking, listening to hilarious and emotional speeches and stories, taking loads of selfies, and eating tons of cake. Alicia & Garret, we were so stoked to hang out with you, and wish you every happiness moving forward!!
