I had so much fun getting to know Bree in the months leading up to her wedding. We shot multiple portrait sessions together, and it started to feel just like girlfriends hanging out, which is just how I like it! She has such a bubbly, effervescent personality, and during her father’s toast, he echoed this sentiment. She’s quick to smile, quick to laugh, quick to not take things too seriously, and quick to share that same zest for life with those around her. I can’t say I’ve ever seen her without that beaming smile spread across her face. It’s not hard to imagine what made Blayne fall in love with her.
Ironically, the day Bree first reached out to me, I was in the midst of shooting a wedding at her very same venue, Aristide Events Center in Mansfield. It’s a beautiful rustic venue with a European, Italian villa feel. While the inside is gorgeous, it’s the outside estate that really lends itself to being the perfect location for an outdoor, garden wedding. Lofty trees, stone paths, and chandeliers hanging from enormous oak trees. They held their ceremony right at sunset. The perfect time for gorgeous portraits, and the perfect time for a little romance.
