Bree & Brad: MARRIED!!

I cried. A lot.

If there was a dictionary definition of passionate, carefree love Brad & Bree would be the photo accompaniment.

I was allowed to be a part of the most beautiful prayers spoken to a bride on her wedding day since my own. Bree was blessed and the words of her girls washed over her as they were lifted up to the King. She shed tears of joy as she was starting a brand new chapter in her life. This new chapter is sure to bring challenges but she knows that it will also bring healing and joy.

Matt shared a sobering conversation with Brad on the car ride over to the ceremony. Two men talking seriously about the responsibilities of being a husband and how difficult it can be to take care of a woman's fragile heart.

Matt and I were so blessed. What a wonderful ending to our 2009 wedding season. We watched as Mr. Westcott married off his second and final child. It was so special to have shared in both of these weddings. It was beautiful to see our previous bride and groom Amy & Dan standing up as Brad's support on his wedding day. Our job is so cool. I could write about this wedding all day...bottom line; we love what we do and we're so glad that we've been blessed to do this for the last 3 years! Here's to 2010 and many, many more weddings!

An intense first look..

Their Grandmothers served as the ring bearers and they presented beautiful rings that included the melted gold of Brad and Bree's Grandfathers who where watching from heaven. (yet another point in the ceremony where I was nearly sobbing)

The whole gang!
