Kristin & Brannon,
When we first met, Kristin was an incredibly excited bride, super energetic, and incredibly sweet. She is also maybe the most well-organized bride I’ve spoken with when it comes to emails, scheduling, and asking questions– Brannon was pretty quiet and mild when we first met (during the client meeting)…I believe his first words were “Hello, how are you?” followed by “Do you all want to order drinks?” some time around 20 minutes later. He’s was so laid back, Kristin assured us he’d be wearing sandals every time we met him.
Nevermind the bridesmaid leaving her dress at home – Brannon & Kristin were pretty stress free and both really excited to get photos started. They chose to see each other beforehand with a revealing, and as we’ve said time and again, you just get more photos that way! It also gives you a chance to have a moment between the two of you before your day to breathe easy & shake off the jitters, look out into your day, and take solace in each other before the ceremony starts. Like you’ll see Here. Oh, and Brannon wasn’t wearing sandals today, but he still looked snazzy!
Their wedding was held at Captain’s Quarters which provided waterfront photo opportunities. During their ceremony they had found a great idea for a unity symbol. Instead of doing a candle or sand they did colored granules of glass which they later sent off to have melted and blown into their own glass sculpture – very cool! And after seeing the results I’d recommend it to anyone.
Finally all the fun starts – their reception was held on the CQ Princess Yacht departing from Captains Quarters. A beautiful ship tour around downtown Louisville with an open bar and a bunch of wild people! Here everyone really let go and were really themselves. Remember that calm easy going Brannon I told you about? Remember the sweet formal girly bride I mentioned? NO more! There was so much drinking, partying, laughing, and air guitar that everything’s a blur even for this photographer (except the photos). …Oh snap, a photography joke. Get it? every things a “blur” followed by “Oh snap”…I keep telling you all I have the funniest jokes ever! And YOU just witnessed history in the making! You’ll just have to go to the gallery folks…
Kristin & Brannon, we really had a blast hanging out with you all on your wedding day. By the end of it, we’re really all just friends and we’re just there to help celebrate your day. We’re so honored to be a part of it and we really wish you all the best! You’ll be there for each other to keep each other happy, wild, and fun.. and Brannon – when you’ve visited the open bar so many times they cut you off at your own wedding, when you nearly knock over your wedding cake [table], when they won’t serve you even back on shore because you were on the boat and got too rowdy – your beautiful bride will be there to reel you back in and put you to bed. Cheers!
