Brandi & Brian’s Wedding

What a fun and wonderful wedding!! We LOVED shooting this wedding for Brandi and Brian. We really clicked with this couple and had a blast during their engagement pictures and couldn’t wait to see how everything came together for this special couple. The day ended up being a little unpredictable since we were expecting scattered showers and both the ceremony and reception were planned to be outside, but everything worked out perfectly and this was truely a spectacular day.

I instantly fell in love with Brandi’s dress (her second dress…) and working at Grandview is always fabulous. I love the natural elements and interesting textures everywhere we turned. Plus Brandi and Brian made sure every detail of this wedding reflecting their unique personality. It was perfect.

Congrats to the happy couple…we hope you love your pictures. Thank you so much for asking us to be a part of your day!

What did you enjoy most about planning your wedding?
All the little details that we decided to make to reflect our personalities & likes.

How did you decide on your dress?
Well…I already had another dress that I had gotten soon after getting engaged and saw this one a few weeks before the wedding with my mom. She was a trouper and went back with me to try it on. I KNEW IT WAS THE ONE and surprisingly it fit perfectly!

What was your favorite detail of the wedding?
Not sure we can really say given everything was awesome but getting married outside was a big deal for us as we love the outdoors.

What are three words you would use to describe your day?
Excited, Nervous, and HAPPY (in that order).

What was the most memorable moment about your wedding day?
Hearing “I present to you Mr. and Mrs. Brian & Brandi Barker”  and then later seeing that Brian had a “battlewound” from hand-gliding the morning of the wedding! Also, walking with my dad down the isle was super special….

What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future?
Getting into our daily routine as husband and wife. The future, hmmm, good times, family, memories, travelling…all the good stuff.
