The second we walked into Brittney’s hotel suite, we were met with instant excitement. She gave us both huge hugs, opened her eyes as wide as she could, threw her hands up in the air and screamed, “I’m a bride!!!” And that excitement didn’t wear off all day! While we were taking detail pictures, she was excitedly passing out jewelry and admiring her flowers. When she was getting her dress on, she just kept giving out excited squeals and saying how she couldn’t believe it was finally her wedding day! When we were taking her bridal portraits, she kept ooh-ing and ah-ing at what we would show her the back of the camera. When we were walking toward Eric to see him for the first time, she could barely contain herself! Even though she was convinced Eric wouldn’t cry when they saw each other, she was so excited to see his face and give him a hug.
It didn’t go as planned though…because Eric surprised ALL of us, and broke down into tears when he saw his beautiful bride! We ADORED this first look…it is undoubtedly one of our favorites! And that’s because not only did they utilize this time to see each other privately, but they also shared heartfelt private vows before the ceremony! It was one of the sweetest and smartest things we’ve ever seen. It was also super cute, because once they were done and had a moment to collect themselves, they were so excited to start their pictures because they said it felt like they were already married!
The ceremony was so amazing and heartfelt. When Brittney walked down that aisle, you’d think Eric was seeing her for the first time all over again. And when all was said and done and they were announced as husband and wife and they marched back down the aisle, Brittney threw her bouquet in the air and cheered with delight! She was all smiles all day, and took the time to greet each and every one of her guests with a hug. And their entrance into the reception hall??? Adorable. Wait till you see those huge balloons!
Congratulations to you both, Eric & Brittney! It was so amazing to be a part of this wonderful day and to see you two start your life together. <3 We can’t wait to have you over and show you more pictures!
