Hello to another #weddingwednesday!

Last weekend, Brandon and I had the privilege of photographing the wedding day of two of the most genuine people, Gabbi + Klinton. While prepping the week before the wedding I was a little nervous that the heat and humidity were going to stick around, but we got so lucky! The day was beautiful, not a cloud in the sky, and just enough of a cool breeze. It was marvelous!

We began the day with the ladies, photographing details and hanging out as they played games (it’s always nice when hair and makeup get done early!) and enjoyed time together. The guys met up with us before the ceremony so we were able to capture a first look with both Gabbi’s dad and Klinton. After the ceremony we went on to do bridal party photos and some bridals, then on to the party!

Gabbi + Klinton, thank you for including Brandon and I on your wedding day. We had so much fun and hope it was a day you’ll never forget.
