The Ivy Place Wedding | Brittany + Alex

Oh man, this wedding. Everything from the wedding party, the guests and the weather was perfect. What made this day even more special was the little moments throughout that brought tears to everyone's eyes.

Brittany had a first look with her brother, Nate right after she stepped into her dress. He greeted her with the most perfect gift from Alex. Tears were already flowing and then Brittany's mom had another surprise. She went down the list of something old, something borrowed, something new and the only thing missing was something blue. Her mom sifted through the layers of Brittany's skirt to show her a little surprise. Her something blue turned out to be a patch of Brittany's dad's old shirt. Just a little reminder that he was with her on her special day. These moments are why I have learned to shoot through tears on a wedding day, guys!

A question I get a lot is, does every wedding feel the same after a while? My honest answer is no. Of course, most weddings have the same general timeline, but the moments like I spoke about above are what make each wedding different and special. It's what keeps me coming back and pushes me to tell each wedding story in it's own way.

Here are some of my favorites images from Brittany and Alex's day. It's definitely going down as one of my favorites!

Right as they started to make their way down the aisle as husband and wife, I watched Alex's eyes well up with tears and the biggest smile came across his face. It was like it all just hit him in that moment.
