These two have been just amazingly awesome people (I knew it at their engagement session), persevering through some pretty tough times leading up to this day. It was just gravy that I've worked with their family before and knew a good number of people celebrating! The fall colors were right at peak, but so was the misty, almost continuous rain. That didn't make Bristol Harbour any less of a beautiful location for wedding photos. The outdoor ceremony was moved to the patio, and it didn't matter.. the tears still flowed and the laughs still came, regardless.
It was a pleasure and an honor to see old clients and friends, and to document yet another epic party. And much like Lisa's brother's wedding, we worked in a pretty awesome night time photo, apropos for the weather :)
The ladies and men both got ready at the resort, making it easy to document the moments and love and humor so prevalent in this family, starting with Sarah putting the finishing touches on her toast.

Learning new things about Brandon haha
Had to sneak in another Polaroid for my awesome clients! ;)
Third wedding in a row for me where they groom was warned, smeared a teeny tiny touch of cake and got the full smear in retaliation ;) Brandon put his own funny spin on this
Brandon's mom was such a hoot.. it's clear where he got it from!
And I got to see Alex and Mark again too! Motherhood looks good on Alex!
Brooke and Jared
Learning the robot dance
He's learning all the dance moves!
Snuck outside and did something fun. Their love is a beacon of light in the darkness!
Thank you Lisa + Brandon for such a fun time. It was an honor working with you.
