Brooke + Alexander: Wedding

It was the day before their rehearsal dinner. I called Brooke for some final details and all I hear is whispering… “Hey Barbara! Can I call you back? Sorry we’re in the courthouse and we kind of forgot to get our marriage license and we’re waiting on the judge….!”. Well I’m sure glad the judge was in a good mood for the two of you!

The party didn’t start for this couple the day of their wedding… it started the night before at their rehearsal dinner. I knew Brooke would be changing some plans for the following morning so I asked her to text me what time the hair appointment was. Little did I know she would send it to me close to 1:00am! When she arrived at Carolina’s salon in the morning… all I saw was that bridal glow that seems to truly exist. This is when she pulled me aside and told me about the plans for the reception. Her and Alex were going to bust out in the middle of their first dance into a compilation of music. I’ve been waiting for a long time to see someone do this at a wedding! Just take a look at one particular shot of Alexander – the movement says it all!

Tears were brought to all eyes in the courtyard when Brooke’s Mimi took her aside for something she will never forget. Before Brookes great Grandmother passed away, she told her that whenever she saw a white butterfly, it was her. Mimi presented her with a white butterfly to put on her bouquet. The picture still gives me chills. Mimi even hand made the cake herself. Stunning. Again I stress the amount of love that surrounded this entire day.

Brooke and Alexander you were such an honor to shoot. I found myself feeling like part of the family and again I will say that I’m sad it’s all over for me. But the beauty is, it’s just the beginning for you two and I’m so fortunate to have met you both. It’s people like you that remind me why I love what I do so much. I hope St. Lucia was just what you pictured, if not more.
