Sometimes I struggle with what to write about in these blog posts. It can often be hard to think of things to say that I haven’t already included in a post, or where to draw the line in terms of what stays personal and what goes public. But for Devin + Brad, the hard part about this post is figuring out where to start as there were just so many amazing moments (and photos) throughout their entire wedding day!
Throughout every wedding day I make little notes on my phone about various things that happen. Everything from additional vendors to credit, to notes about speeches and themes of the day – even stupid things we did throughout the day that were apparently entertaining. The list helps me with these blog posts and other social media write-ups, and also when I am editing (as I make notes about blue versus black suits, etc.). Well, the list for Devin + Brad is a mile long (almost literally) and includes everything from their adorable pup Wolfie (who also joined us on their engagement session) and the fact that we learned that he apparently loves Brad the most, to the incredibly hilarious slideshow Brad’s guys put together for him – seriously this thing was amazing! But my favourite notes are about how touching and truly heartfelt their wedding day was.
I am a pretty sappy person, and even though I hear similar themes at most of our weddings, they pretty much always make me feel like smiling. But Brad is a master wordsmith and as an added bonus, he’s not afraid to show his emotions. His vows were so loving that it had me tearing up during the ceremony, but really, I don’t think there was a single person present who wasn’t feeling those vows! And luckily, Devin was there with a tissue to help him out.
It is easy to see how these two amazing people fell for one another as they really are two of the best. They are kind, thoughtful and oh so funny and getting to share their special day with them was such an honour and a real treat too.
A special thanks and shout out to all the vendors who helped make this day awesome:
