Romantic Gingerbread Meeting House Wedding

When Brandy and I first met up to chat about her wedding details, I knew that she was going to be great to work with!  This gem of a bride is not only sweet and kind, but she is also one of the most organized brides I’ve had the pleasure of working with!

Her blue inspired Gingerbread Meeting House wedding was truly romantic!!  As Derek watched his bride come down the aisle, his emotions poured out and there was a beautiful and quiet moment that the couple shared.  I think we all got a little teary-eyed as we listened to the vows that Brandy and Derek had written for one another.

When it came to the wedding party, they are certainly one of the most fun crowds EVER!  Love and laughter was flowing out of every room and the group welcomed me in like family!!  This wedding certainly holds a special place in my heart!

As the father-daughter dance started, I knew the song within the first second and tears started to fall behind my camera.  The father-daughter dance gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME, but this dance was a little more special because I danced with my father to the same song (Butterfly Kisses).  I hope that when Brandy looks back on her images, or hears this sweet song, that she will feel the same joy and happiness that I felt on my wedding day!
