Brittany and Rand’s Winterham Plantation wedding was gorgeous! I don’t want to jinx anyone, but my brides have been soooo dang lucky when it comes to the weather! (knocking on wood now…) The forecast called for rain all afternoon, and not a drop fell until everyone was under the big, white tent at the reception. And, even then, it was just a short drizzle. I’m so thankful that rain didn’t put a damper on (pun intended!) this special day and that Brittany and Rand were able to celebrate their wedding day outdoors at Winterham Plantation. If you like the colors pink and gold, this wedding is right up your alley! The attention to detail was perfect, and the entire day turned out wonderfully.
I LOOOOOOVE the invitations! The colors and script are beautiful!
And what a great job Greenhouse Florists did on the florals. They were exactly what Brittany had imagined!
Aaaaaaand the dress. The. Dress. It was a lot of dress to wear, and it fit Brittany perfectly!
There’s the blushing bride! Brittany and Rand celebrated their wedding at Winterham Plantation on June 21, 2014. However, the evening prior, the two participated in a sealing ceremony at the LDS Temple in Washington, D.C., being the reason for this date on her robe! (More on the sealing ceremony at the end of this post…)
These sweet bridesmaids were so kind and helpful! I always enjoy being around the bridesmaids before a wedding and seeing how they love the bride…their friend.
It’s time to put on that dress!
Brittany’s first look with her father.
The entire day was relaxed, and it was so nice to take care of all the photos prior to the ceremony. The bridal party got together for their photos as well. Don’t they look amazing!?!
The handsome groom.
Then it was time for portraits with the bride and groom. This is always one of my favorite, and most important, parts of the day!
My absolute faaaaavorite image from the day…
We couldn’t forget to include the flower girls! …and it’s totally fine that one of them wouldn’t look. She was still a cutie!
Brittany was blessed to have a step-father who was a significant part of her life, as well as a biological father. Her step father walked her to the back of the aisle where she was then passed to her biological father for the rest of the walk to the altar. Such a sweet blessing to have more than one father figure in her life!
I think she’s happy! The new Mrs. Gold!
Now, let’s talk details. Lots of pretty pink, gold, and sparkly details… Check it out!
Looking at the raspberry lemonade is making me thirsty!
These first dance images are so sweet. You can clearly see just how in love this couple is.
We can’t leave out dances with the parents! Love these!
A monogrammed cake-topper. Brittany is a girl after my own heart.
The couple, along with friends and family, danced into the evening. They laughed and loved together for hours. It was truly a special day, and I am honored to have been a part of it! But there’s more! I couldn’t possibly tell the whole wedding story without sharing a little bit about Brittany and Rand’s sealing ceremony at the Latter Day Saints Temple in Washington, D.C. the evening before. Only certain individuals were allowed in the temple, but I was ready and waiting for them at their exit. Have a look!
Immediately following the ceremony…
Such a grand venue for a wedding! How could you NOT stop to take a few photos!?!
Congratulations, Brittany and Rand, and Happy Friday, friends!
