Bridal Story: Preparation

I'm delighted to share more of this gorgeous story that was featured on Cottage Hill yesterday! This one highlights an AM Events March bride, Kimmie! When we talked about her bridal portraits and her and Andrew's story, I just knew we had to do it a little differently. We wanted to tell a story of preparation. Not simply of a bride putting on her gown and shoes, but of a bride reflecting on her love story, reading the letters he's written her, looking at the details that make her his bride, preparing for her groom. Michael and Carina perfectly captured not just her incredible beauty but the anticipation, giddiness, reflection, little hand movements, long pauses, and moments of pure joy. I'm smitten and I hope this story inspires you to carve out time on your wedding day to reflect, anticipate, and prepare for your groom!

Kimmie, you are stunning, friend, and I'm humbled to be involved in such a special time in your life. I can't wait to see you down the aisle!
