Brittany and Ryan’s wedding day started with endless sun and the distinct chill of fall in the air.  It was crisp and cool and refreshing, and their wedding itself was full of all the warmth needed for the day.  These two are such a strong example of joy and happiness in life, and of course showed it all  the more on this day.  There were few months that they weren’t both smiling and excited about what is to come for them, and it was truly so beautiful to see (beyond all the other beautiful factors of their day!).

I was so touched by the emotion present in the day by Brittany and Ryan and their loved ones.  Brittany’s mom and dad had everyone in the bridal suite tearing up before we had even left the room!  It was just abundantly clear how loved these two are and how special they are to those around them, and I just love seeing that.

Brittany and Ryan have 2 adorable nephews that are about the same age who were the ring bearers, and I LOVED watching them all interact together.  Brittany spend so much time loving on those boys while she was getting ready and it is just so clear they will have a beautiful relationship while those boys grow up!!  I couldn’t help but focus on them a bit too during this day!

I can’t wait to share– here are some of my (MANY!) favorites!!

Loved all these gorgeous details! This woman holds SO much joy and shares it freely!! She is so lovely to be around.
These sweet boys!! These tender moments were so special. I REALLY enjoyed this bridal party! You know I loved all these sparkly pink details! This fog feature during their first dance was gorgeous!! Brittany and Ryan, I LOVED your day and hope you are enjoying St Lucia so much (we certainly did on our honeymoon!).  Full gallery coming soon!
