Meeting Brandy has been nothing short of a blessing, and I owe a huge thanks to event planner Valerie Metrejean of Southern Fete for that.
Brandy is the type of woman that stands apart from the rest; her soul and uplifting spirit is contagious and I LOVE her spicy attitude! :) Like most brides, she was nervous for her bridal session but once we started pulling out the pieces of her that shined the most, I could see her relaxing more by the minute.
Truly, I can’t say enough. I feel like she was brought my way for a reason and I am so thankful to have been there for her and Steve’s wedding this past Saturday. I wouldn’t have rathered spent my New Year’s Day any other way than enjoying the zest for life there…..and Canadian dancing. ;)
When I see a bride in her gown, it tells me SO much. It talks to me about her personality and her style.
As you can see Brandy’s dress is completely her. Underneath that simple, yet detailed elegance is a stunning and bold shade of deep red.
Just like her! :)
I told her that I was blown away! My first glance and impression of her was of her in her wedding gown.
And she looked GORGEOUS!!! If only we could all be so lucky! ;)
Brandy had her Hair and Makeup done by Salon Indigo. They always do such a wonderful job and Brandy looked especially stunning.
And I absolutely loved the detail on her veil and her gown.
This was the image Brandy chose to display as her reception print. We all sat down together and agreed…THIS is Brandy. :)
You see, the thing I love about Brandy is the way she just lets people in. Immediately, we were friends and she trusted me…no matter what my crazy ideas were: including this image below…..her standing on a tree stump in her gown. :) …I think it was worth it!
:) :) :) :) :)
And I saved this image for last. Of the images we took, this was definitely amongst my top choices. Brandy’s too. And I ADORE the shawl that Shannon (her sister and matron of honor) knitted for her!!!!
I’ve said it so many times but I’ll say it again JUST so you know. ;) You’re awesome. Steve’s awesome. And your family is AWESOME. You guys have made me feel so special and SO welcome. Working with you has been a pleasure. And I am so thankful that Valerie introduced us. I hope you’re enjoying your first few days of marriage and I will have your wedding post up soon.
P.S. I want to send a special thanks to Shannon, the boys, and to Ms. Delilah for coming along. You are so lucky to have a family who loves you so much.
