Wadsworth Mansion Wedding: Kayla & Brendon

Ok friends, brace yourself! This is going to be a BIG post!

Kayla & Brendon’s wedding was one of the prettiest days we have ever had the honor of photographing. And a really HUGE part of that is because in so many ways, the day was beautiful before it was pretty. First and foremost, Kayla & Brendon are just two of my favorite people in this world and they are both so beautiful inside and out. They are two people who love each other and everyone around them with their whole hearts. And when it came to us that was no exception! Two weeks before the wedding, Kayla sent me an email letting me know that she knew we were her photographers even before they were officially engaged, and we were the first people they booked as soon as they were. And that she just wanted me to know that they trusted us completely, and we had free reign on the day. Ahhhh, you want to talk about setting your photographer’s heart on fire and guaranteeing they’ll do their above & beyond best work possible….send them an email saying that!! :) Am I right, photographers everywhere?? :)

Add to that, that their day was absolutely full of GORGEOUS, pretty details. But what made them so beautiful for me, was that Kayla & her mom worked tirelessly together hand-making everyone of them. And all the love and thought that went in to the day, was woven into every detail. To go along with that, both sets of parents poured into everyone on hand that day (us included!) They made sure everyone felt welcome, was taken care of, and during the ceremony they incredible advice on how to have long, beautiful marriages like theirs.

Finally, the whole gorgeous day ended in a STUNNING fireworks display, the likes of which I’ve never seen before. And that could have just been a pretty way to end the night. But when you add to that, that Kayla’s grandfather who had passed away had been a fireworks pyrotechnician and they were done in his honor…it just made the whole thing that much more meaningful and therefore so, so beautiful!

So sit back, relax, get an EXTRA big cup of cocoa for this mega-post and enjoy!
