Still on the stairs, I could hear the laughter. There was no need to make sure I had the right apartment number, there was no mistaking the seven bridesmaids and bride having a great time just on the other side. The rest of the day was no different. Brandi and Stephen have filled their life with love and as a result with people. Everyone at their wedding was there to celebrate and rejoice over this amazing couple.
It is no shock that such a loving and extroverted couple would have 14 people in their bridal party. Each with a unique connection and with loads of love connecting together.
"I feel like I know you!" were Brandi's first words to me as I entered the room. A smile spread wide over my face as I replied, "I Facebook stalked you too!"
Brandi couldn't get enough time with her girls. Each bridesmaid Ooo'd and Awww'd over every step as Brandi got ready.
Brandi and Stephen have a common love in Baseball and it seemed only fitting that it too should be a part of their big day: so it was determined to have a baseball wedding. No details overlooked down to every member of the bridal party wore cleats during the wedding! (The shoes photographed above are Brandi's reception shoes... though if they had been my size I may have just stolen them :D)
I don't think there were more than five minutes without someone's laughter filling the air!
I'm pretty sure the cutest thing I have ever seen were Brandi and Stephen's Baseball vows followed by their exchanging of jerseys!
Much to no one's surprise Brandi's amazing talent and attention for detail lead to a beautifully classically elegant baseball wedding with endless details to keep you looking... and of course delicious Cracker Jacks!
Their love, much like their joy, was beautifully contagious.
Brandi you are breathtaking!
From the first moment of the day to the last there was laughter in the air and joy in everyone's hearts!
Thank you Brandi and Stephen for allowing me the honor to be with you and capture your wedding day! It is a day I will treasure for always.
