Seven Springs Summer Wedding | Brandi & Rick

December 12, 2022

I am finally getting to share this Seven Springs Summer wedding of Brandi & Rick’s with you! And spoiler– it’s really making me miss warmer weather and summer light. We had a perfect day literally and I couldn’t be more thankful.

Brandi is just as much a fan and believer in details as me and knew how important that time was to pull their story together through images. She gave me the best details and plenty of time to design all of the prettiness. For instance I could not get enough of stunning shoes! She also gave me such beautiful colors to work with, in an emerald envelope and blush lettering OH MY — I may have kept the second copy– thank you Brandi!

Brandi and Rick had a sweet first look; then the pups and bridal party joined in on the fun and — oh my goodness — you’re going to see just how cute those fur babies are! 😍 The bridal party was pretty awesome too!  

The trend of burying the bourbon, is still so unique and definitely worked for Brandi and Rick. It also made for such a cute moment away together.

Lots of love and a few drinks later the party began!

The food, the cake, and the company were all first class. But I was ecstatic when we slipped away for some golden hour time. I am so thankful when my couples carve out time to capture these portraits because not only is the light so dreamy and just, well yummy, but it gives them a moment away from the hustle and bustle to just hang out and have a moment to catch their breath and take it all in. 

Just 15-20 minutes of these magical moments, and then they were right back to their party!

We ended their night with the sparkler exit and I seriously count it as a bonus that no one got burned. 

I’ve loved getting to go through the album design process with Brandi and I’ll just share again that I love her value for the details and the fact that we’ve created their heirloom for so many family members and friends to enjoy through the years.

Remember what I always say… your grandchildren are watching!

Brandi and Rick, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your beautiful day!
