Ahhhh! The Ah wedding! Star and Brandon had a giant blow out of a wedding this summer! Star was one of the 10 lovely bridesmaids at Mackenzie and Eugene’s epic wedding day in December. When she and Brandon chatted with me at that reception about their own big day I said they were nuts to have an August wedding…lol! Luckily they orchestrated the perfect day INDOORS 😉 And they outdid the Tichenor’s by about 4 bridal party members too! They had 12 and 12 on each side! The entire group was just a testament to how amazing, generous, and loyal these two are.
The day began with rain at the Vinoy Renaissance followed by a gorgeous full mass at St. Raphael’s. It was so cool to see the sanctuary filled with all of their loved ones. And 4 pews worth of bridesmaids and groomsmen! High fives to my amazing second shooter Tiffani for getting some really powerful shots of Star and her Dad before coming down the aisle.
There was a perfect break in the rain once we got over to the Mahaffey! We were able to shoot all around the building and even ducked out for a subdued sunset. I loved that they were game to go to the top of the parking garage and down to the waters edge. We even got to sneak inside the theater! WIN!
Their reception was such a party! They invited everyone up to join them at the end of their first dance, favorite! Star’s twin sister Sky also had a very special dance with her dad. THEY NAILED IT! There was cake in each other’s faces, tequila toasts, and signing at the top of your lungs! SO much joy and celebration culminating in twinkling sparkler exit. I could not be more excited for these two and their new adventure as husband and wife. It was incredible to be a part of their day, I am so honored. Congratulations!
