Guys, I don’t even know where to start…. Liv and Brad got married! If you follow my blog, you might remember me rambling about how much I love them from their engagement post (you can check it out here). Or if you don’t want to check it out – just know that I have known Liv forever and she is like my little sister and she married the most amazing man, Brad – who I have also known and loved for years!!!! And to answer your question… Yes, I did cry happy tears a few times during the wedding day but I held it together for the most part.
Holy moly!!!! What an amazing day! Let me just take you through it. We started at Ericka’s house (Liv’s sister) where all the girls were getting ready. Brad wrote Liv several notes for her to read throughout the morning along with a few sweet gifts. The big surprise was a bright, pink limo for all of the girls to ride in together to the venue! Liv’s face was priceless when she saw it! So needless to say, we had a fun drive out to Hidden Hollow Farm – their beautiful wedding venue. After everyone got dressed, we did a few fun reveals. Liv’s mom helped her in her dress and then we brought her two sisters in to see the stunning bride (cue the tears). Then all the bridesmaids got to see Liv and cue more tears (and some laughter – check out the girl’s faces when they see her). Liv gave her dad a precious gift (more tears). Brad got a gift and a sweet note from his beautiful bride (not as many tears because guys don’t cry as much). Then the groomsmen asked for a reveal where they could see Brad (even though they had already seen him) so they wouldn’t be outdone by the bridesmaids – they nailed it, ha! And finally Brad and Liv got their first look and cue all the tears. I did a few photos of them before we took a break so they could sit read their personal vows to one another. I couldn’t hear them because I stayed far away but by the looks on their faces, I’d say their words were priceless. And, guys, I haven’t even gotten to their ceremony yet – wow… Brad was an adorable, blubbering mess as his stunning bride walked down the aisle to him. They went right into a wonderful time of praise and worship where God was truly glorified. After the beautiful music was done, their friend, Dow, spoke wisdom and truth to them before announcing them as husband and wife! It was perfect!!! The party was just as amazing with yummy tacos, Long’s donuts, good music and lots of dancing.
My heart is happy and my blog post is long. I’m not going to apologize because it was a day worthy of sharing a thousand photos. Love you, Liv and Brad! Congrats!
