“You were always meant to be our wedding photographer,” Brooke said to me upstairs, moments before it was time for her to walk down the aisle. It was true, and I was honored. Years before, our paths first crossed years ago when I was working with their videographer at her brother’s wedding. Fast forward a few years, and she was set to serve as the maid of honor at her best friend Tiara’s wedding (but not before this intimate 2020 ceremony). And in between I got to document her niece’s milestone first birthday. Our paths have always crossed and I sure am thankful for that!
Brooke and Zach planned the perfect summer wedding at Infinity Event Venue in North Alabama. The venue overlooks Lake Guntersville and it feels like a tiny slice of what the views in heaven might look like. The day started with lots of laughter, joyful tears, and gift giving. Brooke’s mom and grandmother helped fasten her in her dress. This was a special touch since “Nanny” was the matchmaker responsible for bringing the happy couple together. Perhaps one of the sweetest moments of the day was the bride’s first look with her mini bestie, the flower girl. CK gasped and threw her hands over her mouth with excitement at her first view of her Tia and said “princess!” It was absolutely precious! Throw in the kindest wedding party and family that welcomes you in like you are family too, and you’ve got a recipe for the best wedding day.
Brooke and Zach, you guys are seriously the best. You shine such a beautiful light and radiate love, kindness, and joy wherever you go and to whomever you encounter. You guys both have such special families and the most precious friends. It’s easy to see why they all love you so much! Thank you so much for inviting me in as one of your people to celebrate this season in your life. Here are some of my favorites:
