To say we had our share of challenges on Bri + Ben’s wedding day would be an understatement. Their beautifully fall styled wedding was to take place on the grounds of the Cypress Point Country Club. Unfortunately the weather had a different plan. The sky just fell out and dumped rain throughout the region for a full week to include their wedding day causing the ceremony to be held indoors.
They had planned for their beloved Bulldogs Meast and Linus to introduce them down the aisle, however since the ceremony had to be indoors, the pooches were not allowed. 😦
With all the shifting in plans and getting ready, the ceremony began and hour later than planned causing us to completely lose light on an already dark gray day which meant no beautiful outdoor portraits. 😦 😦 😦
I have never seen a couple take so many challenges in such stride. Bri + Ben didn’t skip a beat and went on to enjoy their wedding day with all of their guests.
But dont think it ends there! I just cant allow a Bride and Groom walk away without great portraits of their wedding. I am so thankful Bri + Be allowed me to arrange a “do over”. 🙂 On a beautiful and unusually warm day in November, we met back at the same location they were married and rocked out some gorgeous portraits of these two newlyweds. We could not have asked for a better day! Not to mention we were able to incorporate the pups!! ❤
I could not have pulled this off without the amazing talent and kind hearts behind C&J Floral Design (https://www.facebook.com/CJFloralDesign) for recreating the bridal bouquet and boutonniere. They were not the floral vendor for Bri + Ben’s actual wedding (which was Palette of Petals), but they did an amazing job at recreating these for us and way to be there for a girl when she’s calls in a favor!! Seriously these two stop at nothing to go above and beyond for ALL their brides and vendors. Love them!!!
I also could not have pulled off the actual wedding day without my right hand (wo)man…my partner in crime, Danielle Cote Photography. Seriously love this lady! ❤
Congrats to Bri + Ben!! These two are such a match made in heaven.
