She was ready. SO ready you could feel it in every breath she took and every word she spoke. She was ready to be the Mrs. to her Mr. and begin a new family.
Bright and early, Brianna woke in the penthouse suite with her precious maid of honor and sister, Francesca, to start hair and makeup. The first thing on her mind was ‘wedding day!’, but in close second was ‘Omg. I need coffee’. Girls poured through the doors, dresses and shoes in-hand, but alas, no coffee. Without having to ask, Kevin had gone out earlier that morning to get his bride her coffee and warm breakfast and had it delivered to the room. In the smallest and sometimes seemingly insignificant ways, Kevin knows how to love Brianna. And blissful as could be, she sipped her first sip and all was right in the world.
Brianna and Kevin are completely adorable. They’re that couple always making faces and blowing kisses across the room because they’re so in like. Yes, LIKE. They absolutely love each other to the bone, but they’re truly one anothers best friend and biggest fan, and it’s plain fun to be around!
This wedding was a first for me. Brianna, being my closest cousin and pseudo-sister, asked that I be in the bridal party. All these years of photographing my dearest friends and family’s weddings, I had never once accepted to be part of the wedding. Thanks to my more than capable partner, Marcus, and our dearest friend Isaac, I was able to shoot for a bit and spend the rest of the day with my beloved family.
B+K :: We love you… and in all the silliness, never-ending dinners, and ugly cries… you are our family, and we love you, love you, love you.
My beautiful Zia (which means ‘aunt’ in Italian) and I held back tears all morning.
When Kevin turned around to see Brianna for the first time, he burst into tears! They. are. amazing.
Brianna was smart to bring a fur! It was FREEZING and windy, but you’d never know.
The gorgeous colors that laced Hendrick’s Chapel were stunning and so Fall.
Syracuse University’s architecture is incredible! And it just happens to be my alma-mater, sooo, it’s doubly beautiful.
Bri and Kevin were so wrapped in each other, they almost forgot about the bone-chilling breeze.
For being the outdoorsy hunter Kevin is, he was nothing short of the perfect genteman.
They were married at Missio Church, where some of our most favorite people in the world attend and serve.
