It's always hard to get started when I sit down to write a blog. How can you summarize a wedding day (and a couple) in a few paragraphs? As I sit here, my mind is swirling with all the "standout moments" from Nikki and Wes' wedding at Brownstone Reserve. I usually try to find a few unique things about each of my couples to blog about. In fact, I was telling the Mother of the Bride this as we were chatting at the end of the day. I already had quite a few favorite moments in mind. And now, I can't seem to narrow it down! In fact, this blog has quite a few more pictures than normal, because I completely failed at narrowiing those down, too. But in the end it's my blog and I can do what I want, and I wanted to show you all my favorite moments, and that is what I'm going to do.
In order to keep it remotely organized, I decided to do a list!
Top 10 things I loved about Nikki and Wes' Wedding
10. The decor. Green, gold, and lots of greenery popped beautifully against the limestone at Brownstone Reserve
9. The weather. It might have been in the high 90's, but we were graced with low humidity and so my cameras were not fogging up!!
8. The dance party in the bridal suite 15 minutes before the ceremony.
7. The Father of the Bride first look. Check out the pictures and try not to cry.
6. Neat antique getaway car!
5. The invitation suite. It's been awhile since I've gotten my hands on a full printed suite (with inner envelope, response card and reception card).
4. The dancing. There was a bride/father dance off, a performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody", and someone headbanging in a wig.
3. A late-night taco bar towards the end of the reception.
2. Everyone crying at the ceremony. Wes' sister cried. That made Wes cry (before Nikki even came down the aisle). Then Nikki appeared, Wes cried some more, and Nikki and her Dad cried when the saw Wes. I may or may not have cried...
1. Nikki and Wes. Honest to goodness, these are two kind souls who are madly in love and not afraid to show it. They were a joy to work with!
To the new Mr. and Mrs. Tipping, congratulations and thanks for taking me along for the ride!
