Brittany and Michael celebrated their sun-filled wedding day at the beautiful Hotel Du Village! I loved how romantic and whimsical their wedding day was. The Hotel Du Village was the absolute perfect venue for their dream-like vision! First, we had SO much space to explore and shoot all day long, and the best backdrops for their ceremony and portraits! Getting ready with Brittany was honestly so much fun.
First, I fell head over heels for her sparkly Steve Madden kicks, and her stunning gown by Justin Alexander fit her laid-back personality to a tee! Next, Brittany’s bridesmaids helped her into her dress and made sure her adorable flower crown was ready to go! Already I loved the delicate blues in the color scheme, and Michael’s hidden matching socks! When the details are that good, you know the rest of the day is going to be absolutely amazing!
After getting ready, it was time for the cutest first look ever! I could not handle the look on Michael’s face when he turned to see his beautiful bride in her gown. Brittany and Michael shared a serene moment under the waving trees outside. Next, we spent some time capturing portraits together before the ceremony. I’m still totally in awe of Brittany’s stunning bridal bouquet from Ivy on Main Floral! It was my dream color scheme and I loved how it matched her flower crown!
We got a chance for some shots with the entire bridal party and I am totally in love. I loved seeing their color scheme come together – and having a big bridal party is always SO much fun! Finally, even though we could have wandered around forever, it was finally time for the ceremony! I absolutely loved being at Hotel Du Village!
What did I say – isn’t that the perfect ceremony site at this Hotel Du Village Wedding? I was so in love. Sunshine poured through the trees and down to the seats where loved ones sat. Even though Michael had already seen his bride during their first look, you would never guess it from his face of love an adoration as Brittany walked down the aisle. What a moment!
Brittany practically glided through the grass to stand next to her beau. After tenderly exchanging rings, Michael and Brittany shared their first kiss as husband and wife! It was a magical moment, and friends and family alike all cheered them on as they walked back down the aisle together! Finally it was time for some drinks and dancing!
Reception time! You all know how much I love details, and the reception is no exception! The gorgeous seating chart with matching florals definitely stole my heart. The reception space at this Hotel Du Village Wedding has so much gorgeous light and rustic, but regal, architecture.
Meanwhile, I seriously could not get over all of the floral pieces by Ivy on Main. Centerpieces on the table, decorations on the cake, and pieces of greenery on Brittany and Michael’s table tied the room together. After that, the three of us got a chance to step back outside for more photos at sunset, and I could not be happier! Bathed in golden light, Brittany and Michael were amazing subjects and were willing to get creative. Finally, we ended the day with portraits in the garden. Michael lifting Brittany and sealing the deal with a kiss – it doesn’t get better than that!
