portia & brian tie the knot!! {louisville wedding photographer}


Last weekend one of my very best friends tied the knot to her very best friend. Portia and Brian had a picture-perfect lakeside wedding in beautiful Marianna, Florida. I was beyond honored that the bride and groom asked me to not only be in their bridal party, but also to photograph their special day. I've never actually photographed a wedding while in a bridesmaid dress... but there's a first for everything:)

The entire weekend was absolutely magical... every detail was carefully displayed... the weather was perfect... the food was delicious... and the bride and groom were blissfully happy... Here are some of my favorites from the day...

Portia's dress was gorgeous. I loved the simple lace detail.

Comfy shoes and a classic bouquet... both perfect for Portia... simplicity & beauty.


Amy did a great job on the bride's make-up.
(Amy did my make-up on my wedding day too... nearly 8 years ago!)


A sweet mother-daughter moment.


Portia was the most stunning bride I've ever laid eyes on.


We could not have asked for better weather... or prettier flowers:)


The look of true excitement and anticipation!


And who can blame her? Look at her handsome groom:)


Everything about her is breathtaking, no?


The bride and her girls...

The groom and the guys...


Moments from walking down the aisle!!


Sneaking glances at one another during the ceremony... so sweet.


The first dance as Mr. & Mrs...


The newlyweds!

And they lived happily ever after...

Be sure to leave your well-wishes to the bride & groom... I'm sure they will love reading them while they are out gallivanting on their 3 week New Zealand honeymoon!! (I know, jealous much?)

Congratulations Brian & Portia!! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day. I love you guys!
