Oh. My. Goodness.
Friends, we are still reeling from Richie & Brittney’s wedding this past weekend! Not only was it gorgeous, unique, and so much fun, but it was so wonderful to see these people who we have grown to know and love officially become a family after such a long wait! You see, Richie has three amazingly beautiful daughters. Jaelynn, Ellie, and Cece. And oh, how they love Brittney. <3 We made mention on our facebook earlier this week that we’re fairly certain that their wedding was on the day before Mother’s Day for a reason…because the next day was Brittney’s first full day as the official step-mom to these gorgeous girls making their family truly complete!
When we got to the Park Inn this past Saturday, everyone was buzzing around. Finishing up hair and makeup, getting spanx on, and sipping on some adult beverages was the name of their game! Everyone was having so much fun already…we KNEW this was setting the tone for the day, and couldn’t be more excited! When Brittney stepped into her dress…she was just a vision! And it was so sweet to see how all three of her step-daughters reacted to her with so much love and emotion! The two oldest even teared up! Then after they helped Brit with her shoes, they all put their hands in a circle and did a cheer…Brittney said, “Ready girls? Frelin on three!” Yeah. Our hearts melted too. <3
Then it was time for the ceremony in the amazing Oliver House warehouse! You guys…if you haven’t checked this venue out yet, you MUST! It is an actual functioning warehouse throughout the week, and then on the weekends it’s a wedding venue! It is so industrial and unique…a wonderful option for more modern or edgy brides! And you can’t beat the food and service at this place. Maureen, the event manager, is quite possibly the sweetest person you will ever meet. At any rate, they had this warehouse decked out! Lights, fabric, signs, flowers…it was amazing! But not quite as amazing as seeing the huge smiles on Brit’s and Richie’s faces when they saw each other on opposite ends of that aisle! Just wait until you see!
Portrait time was simply a blast. We told these guys that we’re hiring them to teach others how to pose and still be genuine. Because these two not only always look fabulous, but they are so real. And we love that about them so much. <3
Congrats Richie & Brittney! Have so much fun on your cruise! We can’t wait until you guys get back so we can hang out again!
