It rained that day. Just as the chairs were in place and the florals were all assembled and everything was ready to begin, the skies opened. But neither of them panicked. Neither of them worried. They didn’t relocate their ceremony or change any of their plans. They simply had faith and waited. And shortly after it began, as the rain dried up and the warmest of colors began to fill the sky, their ceremony began in the most picturesque of settings. After a bit of waiting, and a little faith, the two of them finally laid eyes on each other that day.
And as she walked down the aisle on her father’s arm, there was no question in anyone’s mind that the two of them would easily weather any storm life threw their way. Just like they had with the rain that day. Grounded in their love, solid in their faith, and sure that the very best things in life were worth waiting for . . . . .

Kristina and Brandon are married! The two of them had such an insanely perfect, beautifully detailed and love-filled wedding day at the Vinoy which genuinely couldn’t have been any lovelier. After a brief rain storm that threatened to relocate their ceremony, the two of them were rewarded with the most stunning celebration up on the esplanade of the Vinoy followed by an INSANELY stunning reception in the grand ballroom. We could try to describe the ornate florals, the epic signage, and the dreamy decor but words absolutely wouldn’t do any of it an ounce of justice. So it’s a good thing we have just a *few* pictures to share ; )
Kristina looked stunning in a perfectly fitted gown, and as much as we loved her first look their may of been some squeals (mostly from Sarah – because BOWS) when we saw her second one. And Brandon looked every bit as perfect in a tailored tux and a shiny pair of Louboutins. Together, the two of them are so incredibly sweet, and watching them throughout the day filled our hearts in the very best of ways. From the way Brandon teared up when he saw his bride at the end of the aisle to the giant smiles on their faces as they ran through the sparklers at the end of the night, these two were overflowing with a joy all day that was simply contagious.
Kristina + Brandon, thank you for the honor of capturing every bit of your epic Vinoy wedding day! We couldn’t have adored it (or you two!) any more and are already so excited to see what this next chapter holds for you both!
Love + Laughs,
Sarah & Ben
