After much anticipation, planning, and preparation, the big day had finally arrived for Brandonn and Kim--and we were so glad to be a part of it! We met Kim the morning of the wedding day at her home, keeping calm and cool amongst a host of loving friends and family jam-packed in her home as she pulled together the final touches for her day. Once Kim was in her dress, her matron of honor helped her spray on her new 'favorite' perfume--one of the many gifts from her groom. (Brandonn can bring a smile to her face, even when he's not around!) Through it all, Kim definitely had lots of loving hands to assist on this special day. After playing "fish face" with her flower girl, her bridesmaids held up the mirror for Kim so she could get a glimpse of herself and see the final result -- a beautiful bride! While the day was joyous, it did have its sad moments. Just a couple months before her wedding, she lost her loving father to a long battle with cancer. She wanted a picture with her father nonetheless, so she got her wish. We know her father would have been so proud of his girl on this day, as her family reminded her--he would want her to celebrate! So it was wonderful that her brother was there to put the smile back on her face as she pinned on his boutonniere.
Next, we took a few fun shots with her and ALL her lovely lady attendants. Then we were off to catch up with the fellas. Over at Brandonn's place, we found a proud display of HIS details: A pair of Converse that his bride bought him along with another set of ties for the guys to switch it up at the reception. Her custom-made ring along with his were also on proud display. Nice! Brandonn was over-the-top excited about having all his guys with him to celebrate his big day. But we think we was most pumped about his cameo shots. Brandonn, we love the shades! Finally, the time had come for the ceremony. Brandonn had tears in his eyes as Kim's brother escorted her down the aisle toward him. We kinda figured he would. Fortunately, Kim was there to keep him strong :)
The ceremony was in Spanish, so we didn't get too much of it. But we're pretty sure the officiant's gesture here was an indication of unity. And we did catch an illustration of peanut butter (Brandonn) and jelly (Kim). Although they are both very different, when you put them together, they blend perfectly. We think that was super appropriate for these two! The first order of business after the ceremony was heading over to the Starbucks at the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley. His and hers cappa-frappa-something! :) Afterwards they were all smiles. While at the Promenade Shops, we managed to fit the entire wedding party (emphasis on the party) into a few fun shots, and get a few more of the handsome couple, before heading over to the reception at the Eastonian. When Brandonn and Kim made their entrance at The Eastonian, there was instant celebration. Brandonn, we didn't know you could jump so high! Kim and Brandonn continued the celebration with their first dance--a lovely ballad followed by a fun salsa. We love it! The wedding cake was beautiful, and Kim and Brandonn celebrated by civilly sharing the first piece, then lovingly shoving the next in each other's face. That's how you do it! The dancing continued for hours, and the newlyweds did not miss out on the opportunity to dance the night away. We even caught Kim singing a little bit of "We are Family" with her girls. It was a great party! Brandonn and Kim, congratulations to the both of you! We wish you both the best as you experience all the joys of married life!
