briana and matt’s wedding at the island house, belle mer

As we were driving over the bridge to Goat Island we couldn’t believe how the wind was making these insane waves and we had to jump out of the car to get a shot of the island, the bridge, the lighthouse, and of course the waves which were this gorgeous green/blue color. How strange that the first thing we photographed was Briana’s invitation and the ceremony programs and that the theme of the stationary was big blue/green waves. Did Briana conjure this weather with her design elements? Maybe… but then her dad told us that he calls her BreeBree, or sometimes Breezy, because she’s well… breezy. Always breezing in and breezing out. So it seems it really couldn’t have been any other way but breezy on Briana’s wedding day. Although, breezy is a bit of an understatement. Epic gales better describe the day. Is Briana’s middle name Gale maybe? Aside from the wind, the thing that struck us most about this day was the kiss at the end of the ceremony. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. The emotion was palpable and made you feel all warm inside (good thing because of the aforementioned gales). And it lasted a looooong time. I could have gone inside, ordered a glass of wine, drunk it… I could have practically crushed the grapes myself and still made it outside in time for the recessional. It was really heartwarming and a true testament to how crazy Briana and Matt are for each other. That’s the element you can’t design… and the one that matters the most in life and especially in the photos!

P.S. When we grow up, we want an uncle like Uncle Matt, seriously… are these the two luckiest flower girls in the world? {sigh….}
