When I woke up Saturday morning, I had the initial thought of “Wow, it’s a beautiful day to get married.” When we pulled up to Joslin Atrium I verbally said it, because it just blew me away and I hadn’t seen any of the wedding party, any of the details, nothing yet.
There were so many things about Gabbie + Brady’s wedding day that just made me go totally heart eyes!!! Gabbie made such a beautiful bride, and Brady is so dapper! The first look with Gabbie’s dad was absolutely precious, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t tear up a little behind my camera. Then we got to do some bridal party portraits which my gosh, these ladies are some of the sweetest ever!! They love Gabbie so well, and it’s incredible.
I couldn’t help but cry some happy tears as Gabbie read her vows to Brady, and vice versa. These two are so so so crazy about each other. I have so many raves about their wedding, their family is so full of joy, the ceremony was so intimate and the emotions were so raw, gosh. But the bride and groom portraits, they are stunning. I can’t even put the words together, but look at the photos. They’re so cute, and they just love each other. Mitch and I were hanging out with them while we took their portraits you could see the joy they had and how much they adore each other. These two made our jobs so easy!! I was so incredibly giddy throughout the entire day because you could just tell how excited Gabbie was, which made me so excited! (And I’m still pretty excited if you haven’t noticed all the exclamation points)
These two have a fun adventure ahead, they compliment each other so well and I’m confident they will continue to inspire couples to love each other and the Lord better.
Gabbie + Brady, we love you guys. Happy Honeymoon!
