Brittany and Corey’s wedding at Mountain View Gardens and Ballroom

Wedding Venue: Mountain View Gardens and Ballroom
Wedding Gown Boutique: Something Blue Bridal
Cake Artist: Cakes By Audry
Caterer: Mountain View Garden and Ballroom
Florist: Alyce Daniel Designs

Two police officers pulled up to the hotel.  Then an ambulance. Then a fire truck.

We didn’t think much of it.  But then we went into the hotel to start documenting Brittany’s wedding day and found out that the paramedics were heading to the same hotel room we were!

Our concern gave way to relieve when we found out that the pregnant makeup artist… not the bride had a fainting spell.  Everyone checked out just fine but Brittany had to continue putting on her makeup by herself…

She was a champ though. Turns out… she’s amazing at putting on makeup herself…

What other’s are saying

Something subtle, yet powerful, happens when I look at Bo. There’s an energy present that is very real and felt only between the two of us. It is the connection we have with each other, embodying all that brought us together and the love we share. I imagine that most people assume it’s there, but no one actually looks for it. Except you. Instead of taking pictures of the two of us, you capture what is between us. It is a profound gift that you have, Rich, to catch meaning in a glance or love in a touch. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us. - Rebekah Hughes
