Dear Brittany and Stu, I feel like I could write to the blog readers and tell them about your beautiful wedding day like I normally do, but today I'm writing to you.
Getting to know you two over the last 18 months has changed us. We fell in love with your sweet Bear, enjoyed cookouts, and dinners together, and we rarely talked about your upcoming wedding. We felt so valued to be invited into your life as your friends.
When your wedding day came, Brittany, I swooned over your bouquet, squealed when you pulled out your beautiful Badgley Mischka's, and, as I asked you what you loved about Stuart, I cried right along with you. It was truly a heartfelt and meaningful day.
As you walked down the aisle, I did my best to shoot in-focus photos as I teared up (again!) And then as you toasted, kissed, cheered, and danced the night away under the cafe lights, beautiful florals (again, with the flowers. It's probably my love language) and your closest friends and family, we couldn't stop smiling.
Thank you for choosing us. Thank you for choosing friendship and valuing us as more than just your photographers. And thank you for including us on your meaningful and elegant wedding day. Congratulations, Brittany & Stuart! (and Bear :)
Stephen and Stephanie
p.s.-Corinne (Canvas Weddings) and Amanda (Alluring Blooms), you guys are dreamboats and photographing your brilliance is such an honor! You thought of every last detail and your work was perfection! Amanda...I just can't even with that floral garland.
