Tatyana’s day began with her fun group gathered at the house to prepare together. There was much laughter, treats and cocktails to keep the moroning entertaining.
The flower girl admired the bridal gown. If only we could know what she was thinking at this moment.
Details. Details. Details.
Tatyana’s mom helped her into her gown and assisted with all the final trimmings.
The bride’s necklace was her grandmothers. Sentimental pieces are heart-warming to know they are being represented on a wedding day.
Next up was the guys. I headed to Brachett’s Crossing to capture interaction of the groom with his closest friends.
We began the interaction with the bride and groom outside the Country Club. Here is the moment they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day.
The “fist look” location was a beautiful place to take photos of just the two of them.
The back of the gown was a gorgeous as the front.
Next we moved under the tree. You probably wouldn’t notice, but there was a faint drizzle in the air while we took all these photos. So I kept them under the branches of this tree the whole time we were out.
Brackett’s Crossing Country club is a beautiful venue for a wedding. On Tatyana and Ryan’s wedding day, it rained from morning until the late night. The wedding ceremony was moved inside the lovely ballroom and the day went on as though it was planned that way.
After the ceremony we wanted to add the bridal party to some photos but it was pouring out. We were able to use the loading area with an awning at the front entrance for this.
As dinner proceeded, the speeches were heartfelt and beautiful.
The dance floor got busy as family and friends enjoyed the evening.
The bride’s bouquet had lovely feathers that added a soft touch to the photo of the rings. Candle light in the background gave a pretty glow.
We popped outside one more time for a silhouette photo on the patio as the rain poured behind us.
I truly feel honored to have met this amazing couple. They have a warm presence that makes you feel comfortable to be around them at all times. I wish them the very best in their new lives together.
