Brittland Manor Wedding: Chelsea and Ryan

Chelsea and Ryan’s Brittland Manor wedding was one of my favorites to date and I am so excited to share it with you!  The day started with Chelsea getting ready in the bridal suite, and Ryan getting ready in the waterfront house at the end of the property. All the girls in the bridal party and family got their makeup done on the first floor, and then headed up to one of the beautiful rooms at the Estates to get dressed in. One thing I loved the most about this wedding day was that Chelsea opted to do a First Look with her bridesmaids, something I think adds a layer of depth to your photos and heartfelt moments to your day. Ryan and his groomsmen also had a ton of fun playing music, drinking, and hanging out on the dock. Ryan’s dad even had his boat parked out on the water!

Ryan and Chelsea opted to share a First Look together in front of the Estate. It was a private and intimate moment that made for the beautiful start to the celebration of their marriage. After their First Look, we were able to do bridal party photos in no rush, and Chelsea’s dad walked up which made for a sweet impromptu First Look with her dad, too! Guests arrived and they said their vows under the most precious Oak tree. Guests watched and were captured with emotion as Chelsea and Ryan recited their own handwritten vows. Some of my favorite parts of this wedding were: Chelsea walking into the ceremony with her dad, and the cocktail hour which was surrounding the pool!  Being near water actually made for the best lighting! For their reception, they had it tented with lots of attention to detail and a vibrant floral component that really brought the space together. I am so honored to have played a part in telling this love story that is just getting started!
