Abby and Brian’s wedding on Saturday was everything that a wedding should be. A gorgeous bride and a handsome groom. Family and friends whose excitement for the couple was contagious. There were smiles and laughter from the very moment we walked in the door to the last song of the reception. Their big day was truly a celebration of an amazing couple and two families becoming one.
Brian and Abby did an terrific job of integrating their families into their wedding day. Abby’s sister, Natalie, was their officiant for the ceremony. And small details, like Abby using her mother’s handkerchief, or carrying the pennies that made the way down the aisles of their parents’ weddings with her as she made the way down the aisle to Brian, made this momentous day even more special.
Abby and Brian both got ready for the wedding at the Courtyard Marriott attached to the Grand Event Center in Grandview where the reception would be held. After slipping Abby into her dress and getting the boutonniere on Brian, they were ready for their first look. But first, Abby shared a special moment with her dad as he saw his daughter as a bride for the first time.
Love, love, LOVE first looks!
After portraits and group pictures it was finally time for the ceremony. Abby’s sister did an amazing job officiating the ceremony and Abby and Brian exchanged hand written vows.
We had some time after family pictures to sneak away for some sunset shots of just Abby and Brian – officially husband and wife!
Abby and Brian’s reception at the Grand Event Center was gorgeous and so much fun. Brian and Abby’s wedding cake was made by a family member and the Precious Moments cake topper and cake knife had been in the family for years. And when it came time for dancing, let me just say that Abby, Brian, and their family and friends know how to party! I was kept entertained all night long!
Congratulations, Brian and Abby! I know you guys are off on your gorgeous, relaxing honeymoon, but I hope you love the sneak peek and I wish you the absolute best as you start your lives together as husband and wife!
