I'm Candace and I'm a destination wedding & portrait photographer based out of the Washington, D.C. area. Chances are you won't find me in the DMV for too long. Come and explore my corner of the world with me!
Greetings there my friends from the San Francisco Airport! Im about to catch my flight to Hawaii but I couldn’t jet set before sharing Brianna + Kims STUNNER of a celebration at The Barn on Bridge in Pennsylvania! I feel like the weather accurately matched how beautiful these two gals are. Kim is such a go with the flow, chill, super happy go lucky kind of gal while Brianna was the organized, excited and ready to just get down and party gal of the day and I was HERE FOR IT.
I think their first look will go down as one of my FAVORITE first looks I’ve ever photographed. They didn’t want to see each other before reading their own letters to each other. So we got Kim nice and situated in the GLOWIEST fall light and turned her around so she couldn’t see her soon-to-be WIFE! Im sure the anticipation was KILLING her because while Bri was being walked down by her brothers, she kept yelling how beautiful Kim was and how excited she was to just be near her. They stood back to back and read their own letters to each other and I was a sobbing mess, Natalie was a sobbing mess, Bri was a sobbing mess, Kim was just super smiley and happy haha. We were all a mess. Once they turned around they just embraced each other and Bri just couldn’t get over how stunning Kim looked! I totally have to agree. Both Bri + Kim looked INCREDIBLE!
I had a BLAST at their reception. Before we all danced the night away, Kim and Bri entered their party and then shared their first dance on the catwalk above all of their guests under spotlight. It was beautiful. And these two had some of the best speeches I’ve heard! Im a sucker for toasts, its my favorite part of a wedding day, and these gals were surrounded by all the love. Not only did I laugh but I cried and laughed some more and snagged some real gems of the ladies reactions to those exact speeches.
It was an all around PERFECT day and I hope this little glimpse into their celebration makes you all smile!
