This weather!! A wedding up at Burritt on the Mountain always makes for a great day, but these mild fall weekends this year have been absolutely incredible! Laura and Grey’s Burritt wedding this past weekend had perfect weather, so many sweet emotional moments, and a lively dance party for a perfect ending.
We started the day with a whole boxful of ah-mazing details that made me do a little happy dance. Laura even left me a list that told me the significance of some of the details, which helped me use those details to tell their story even better! Some pj-and-mimosa pictures later, we were ready and off to a whole day full of really incredible, emotional, meaningful moments. More on that in a second!
The main event was no exception. Laura and Grey exchanged their vows on The View just an hour before sunset. The View is one romantic place for a ceremony!
Let me tell you, this day was full of super sweet moments. Oh, man. I found myself tearing up over and over again behind my camera. The first time I completely melted into a puddle was during the bride and groom gift exchange. There is just so much genuine emotion that spills over as Laura and Grey love each other so well and show it in the little ways.
The second puddle moment was during the first look with Laura’s Godfather. The shared love they have for each other and for Laura’s father was truly special. And the third puddle moment was definitely during Laura and Grey’s first look with each other. This is one of the hundreds of reasons we LOVE those first looks! These moments are so real and so unscripted.
My favorite detail of all was the gift Laura gave Grey on their wedding day. She engraved a watch with Grey’s mother’s handwriting on the back of it, reminding him of her love. Carrying that piece of his precious mom with him on his wedding day, along with Laura’s bouquet charm with a picture in memory of her dad was incredibly special. They honored their parents in so many meaningful ways throughout the day.
One last one! Laura’s handkerchief was created from satin, lace, and a button from her grandmother’s wedding dress. I love that so much! And a shoutout to Laura’s brother-in-law, who was a groomsman in one of our weddings at Burritt last fall! He’s a genuinely kind soul, and it was a treat to see him again.
Most of us have fallen in love with Burritt’s sunset somewhere along the line. Laura and Grey had an EPIC evening display for their wedding day! The pinks and oranges were on fire! That glow of absolute perfection is only around for a really short time, and Laura and Grey nailed their poses as we took advantage of that incredible light. You’ll see what I mean when you get to those sunset pictures!
So many amazing moment that we can’t wait to show you. Here you go!
Laura & Gray – Thank you so much for giving us the honor of cherishing this day with you! You warmed our hearts with so many moments of truly cherished love, family, and legacy. Both of you shine brightly and we are blessed to know you and capture some of your sweetest memories! Hugs!
