The only thing missing from Brittney and Nate's wedding day, was their adorable dog Whiskey. (I only say that because I miss seeing that gorgeous pup.) Otherwise, it was a truly amazing day from start to finish. We loooveee working with a laid back and fun bridal party. This group definitely had that covered. Starting with the ladies getting ready, they were so relaxed and really enjoying the moments as they happened. Nothing but smiles, there were no nervous bride or bridesmaids here. They danced together and joked all morning. Seriously, they were so calm and fun all day. Even as they waited at the back of the church to walk down the aisle, they were doing the wave to the processional music. And despite some minor wardrobe malfunctions, Nate and his groomsmen were joking and having fun as the ceremony began too. Loved it!
The ceremony at the Linehan Chapel at Nazareth College was even sprinkled with some light hearted jokes at the expense of some St. John Fisher College alumni, which includes Nate. I guess there's a bit of friendly rivalry between the two schools...being practically neighbors, I can't imagine why...
After the ceremony, the bridal party portraits kept us all laughing the whole time. One memorable moment, was when Nate and his group of rugby guys, along with the ladies showed us what a scrum is. If you don't know, it's a little like lining up a football formation - except without pads, and there's a little more crazy involved. Nevertheless, the ladies lined up across from the big, bad groomsmen. Hysteria ensued, and luckily no one had a black eye afterwards!
Then, it was off to Casa Larga Vineyards for a few more group portraits, and the party really began. Everything about the day was perfect. Throughout, I never once saw Brittney or Nate without a smile or a look of pure love on their faces. What more can you ask for really? Oh, a S'mores bar you say? Yep, they had that too. Yum, the pregnant photographer thanks you!
Nate and Brittney, we wish for nothing but the best and most beautiful future for you. Your glowing optimism and positive spirits are sure to carry you far together. We'll miss you as you make your big transition to better things in Austin! Congratulations!
