June 23, 2018 | The Most Cheerful Wedding Day
I still can’t believe that the Stutzman wedding was just two months ago! And it wouldn’t have been a summer wedding day in Ohio if there hadn’t been some chance of rain. In fact, it rained most of the morning before I got to the salon where Brit and her girls were getting ready. But the clouds parted just in time and we had a beautiful, rain-free day.
Once we arrived at Brookshire, everyone got dressed and Brit did a first look with both her father and step-father and then a no-look, first look with Jeremy, which of course was filled with lots of laughter and joy. After we split up to take some group photos, it was time for the ceremony which was incredibly special because Brit’s step-father officiated! It’s so meaningful when a close friend or family member officiating the ceremony – they’re filled with so many personal moments and happy memories and cool family stories! After the ceremony, guests showered the newlyweds with rose petals (a new personal favorite).
Everything about this wedding was a blast! The people, the moments, all of it. I could keep going on and on, but that just means I should get to the second best part of this blog post …
Here are the three things I loved most about this wedding:
- I started the day off with Brit and her #bridetribe at Charles Penzone and instantly felt like I blended into her friend group. These are some cool girls and it was a blast hanging out with them all day!
- Brit did a first look with her father and step-father and both moments were so special! The entire day, Brit & Jeremy were surrounded by so much love and it was amazing to witness and be a part of.
- Jeremy & Brit are fun-loving, good people and their wedding day reflected their personalities SO perfectly! Brightly colored flowers, one of the coolest wedding cakes I’ve ever seen, and a family with big hearts and a whole lotta love!
