This blog post is a day late, but it’s DEFINITELY not short on images! This is partially because Julia & Brian AND their friends and family are extra photogenic. It’s also partly because Hollyfield Manor is an absolutely beautiful venue! There are SO many little spots that are perfect for photos. Julia & Brian looked at one wedding venue, and that was enough. I can see why!!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned after 7 years of shooting weddings, it’s that weddings are a true testament to the life that couples build for themselves. Julia & Brian’s wedding was FULL of excited and sometimes teary-eyed friends and family members. There were stories about days at the lake, beer olympics, and pretty much all the Higginbothams wonderings WHEN exactly Brian planned to propose that summer. This wedding was truly a celebration for everyone that adores these two.
Lastly, I feel like I should say that any time a couple’s signature cocktail is Mango White Claw, you’re bound to have a great wedding day. That’s just another example of ideas I plan to steal from one of my couples! 😉
King William Florist is seriously SO good. This bouquet was literally HEAVY with gorgeousness!
I love the anticipation before the first look!!
The boys were cheering from the window, which was the cutest thing ever.
Whoever at Hollyfield had the idea to build this little dock with a gazebo . . . I love you.
Paul is easily one of the cutest ring bearers ever. After I did portraits here with Julia & Brian, I heard from his cousin Andrew that HE wanted his own dock portraits! Paul was also super excited to show me his camera, which I think is better than mine because it’s waterproof. 😉 I heard he was snapping away while I was, so I want to see those portraits!!
Icing a groomsman — CLASSIC!
Champagne sponsored by Costco. 😉
Y’all. Bachelor Boys Band was SO much fun!!
Julia & Brian,
Thank you so much for making me (and Bert!!) a part of your wedding day!! We had so much fun, and we can’t wait to see you in October!!
