I can’t believe this is an actual real post..on MY blog! Brittany and Kris– everything about who you are individually, as a couple and what kind of love you showing the world is incredible. I am SO honored to have been a part of your day and this amazing life experience!
It took two planes, two ferries and a taxi to get here and it was beyond worth the trips. Virgin Gorda is a tucked away little paradise and the Baths were the perfect place for a sunset ceremony! The British Virgin Islands are where Brittany and Kris first met..how incredible to get married there!? And BRIDES!!! LISTEN– the biggest lesson from this whole entire day was to remember the most important thing of all that happens on your wedding day….
YOU GET MARRIED! To the love of your life!!! I’m not going to emphasize this enough, not as much as I want to at least because I can’t even put it into words..but good GRIEF wedding days are too often filled with ridiculous and wasteful amounts of stress over nothing. Absolutely nothing. Life is life, things will always happen. The people around you have a lot to do with it too– and I was so glad that Brittany was surrounded by her family and they all knew the most important thing was to keep her calm! You know what she cared about on this day? Making sure everyone else was content and happy and marrying Kris. That’s it. It was inspiring!!! She could start a bridal revolution! 🙂
They hung out in the early part of their day, took their time, relaxed. They had a little wine, a nice outdoor shower, just took in the gorgeous day and got SO excited to get married closer and closer to the ceremony time! Brittany had a first look with her dad, and then gave her mama and daddy some handkerchiefs with sweet words on them..which were immediately put to use as they both started to cry! Brittany teared up at the altar, Kris held her SO tight and passionately during portraits– and did I mention the immense amount of portrait time?! They know they will never get that time back on that day and they prioritized it for me and I can’t thank them enough!!!
Tara Liebeck, my best friend, second shooter, traveling pal..I don’t know what I would have done without you– THANK YOU for being a HUGE part of this and putting up with me for days! LOVE YOU! 🙂
Maya Couture for the win!
Reading a love note from her groom 🙂
A very meaningful necklace 🙂
Kris knows how to work it!!
Probably one of the most amazing reactions I’ve ever seen– and that’s something you can not make up or stage. I love how much Rick loves his little girl!
I was crying too! Naturally!
Couples that kiss more than once at the altar DEFINITELY get my vote!!! They were so happy to be married!!!
Kris and his brothers and Dad, looking SO sharp!!
When you have a bride that will do THIS to get to a good location, jackpot!!!!!! 🙂 LOVE you Brittany!!
I think he likes her 🙂
Happily ever after!
