Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Wedding: Kerri and Joe

Kerri and Joe’s Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast Wedding was such a special day. It all started with Kerri and her bridesmaids getting ready in the cottage at Briar Patch. The girls were eating snacks, and getting their hair and makeup done all while listening to music and having a great time. Joe and the groomsmen were outside nearby also hanging out. We spent some time getting some candids of them in their spaces, before Kerri got into her beautiful wedding dress and then we headed out to the front lawn under the tree for their First Look.

Their First Look was completely private which made for the most special part of their wedding day. Joe cried when he saw Kerri, and they are some of the best photos. After their private moment at their First Look we walked around getting a lot of variety of portraits of them, before inviting the bridal party out to join them. Their bridal party photos were followed by the most heartfelt of ceremonies and receptions to date. What is special about this wedding is that Kerri and Joe rescheduled their date many times due to COVID. And when the day finally came, it was worth all the waiting. When I asked Kerri and Joe what they like to do for fun, they told me they both love tacos, hiking, and long drives. Joe enjoys mountain climbing and swimming, and Kerri is a full-time nerd who studies ears all day long.They also shared with me their favorite things about one another: Joe’s favorite thing about Kerri is her constant support and her compassion for her profession. Kerri’s favorite thing about Joe is his patience and his genuine compassion for others.

Their wedding ended with a packed dance floor full of laughs and way too much fun! It was a night and love story I will cherish forever, congratulations to you, Kerri and Joe.
