Wedding season is back in full swing and my first wedding of the year was nothing short of amazing! It was cloudy and cold with some snow flurries – but it was AMAZING! I’ve been blessed to know Braden for years. He played basketball for my husband and I loved getting to know him when he was in high school! Now he is all grown up and has found the love of his life – his stunning bride – Olivia! I was so honored when they reached out to me to see if I could photograph their wedding day. And I’m so thankful that I was able to be there to watch these two get married before God and all their friends and family. We started the day at the Garment Factory in Franklin, IN! The girls were all getting ready with hair and makeup as the guys hung out and watched a little basketball. And quickly the day became busy… but a good and wonderful busy! It’s the reason I love photographing weddings! After Olivia got in her dress, she had some sweet moments of first looks with her bridesmaids, her dad and (last but not least) Braden. We took advantage of the amazing windows and light at the Garment Factory (and also took advantage of the warmth, haha!) for some portraits before driving over to Grace Assembly of God where the ceremony took place. After the ceremony, Braden and Olivia were troopers, braved the cold and went outside with me for a few minutes for some of my favorite images of the day. The night ended back at the Garment Factory with a fabulous party and celebration! Congrats, Olivia and Braden! I am so excited for what God has in store for you and your marriage!
