It was a gorgeous, sunny April morning when Rachael and I arrived at Brigitta’s mom’s beautiful home. As the girls finished the last touches of their hair and makeup, they rocked out to 80’s and 90’s pop … giggling as boy bands and teeny bopper songs blared through the speakers. Everyone was full of smiles and excitement as Brigitta dressed and headed towards the church to promise forever to her groom, Matt.
Brigitta and Matt swore to love each other throughout it … forever and always … in front of their dearest friends and family who came from near and far (including Australia, where Matt is from) at Kenilworth Union Church. I could have photographed Brigitta and Matt for hours at Kenilworth Union …. it is a photographer’s dream church. These two were so thrilled to finally be husband and wife which only made my job even easier – I literally told them “one more photo” about a million times. Between the “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, Oi, Oi” chants and human pyramids – this group was full of energy all day long. It was a truly beautiful day full of so much love … love for each other and love from all their friends and family.
Brigitta + Matt – Thank you for inviting me into your lives to tell the story of your “happily ever after”. Your friends and family made us feel right at home and made the day beyond fun for us. I wish you both nothing but a lifetime of love and enteral bliss together. Congratulations! love and xo – Brittany
A very special thank you to my friend and second photographer, Rachael Osborn, along with all the other amazing creative team members who helped make this day possible for Brigitta + Matt.
