Celeste + Brandon | Kilburnie Inn at Craig Farm

This wedding… this wedding was a little extra special to me.  I’ve known the groom since he was 15 and I was living in Belgium serving as a student missionary and working with his parents.  This family basically IS family to me so, when Brandon found Celeste and decided that she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with, well, I was as happy as if I really was his sister!

Celeste is as sweet as can be and as precious as she is, she somehow gets Brandon like no one else can.  And that’s what makes them just perfect for each other.

She couldn’t stop smiling as she was getting ready for their First Look… and he was nervous to see his bride for the first time on their wedding day.  Let’s just say that there were tears from all three of us when he turned around to see how beautiful she was.  But after that?  They could NOT stop smiling and laughing with each other!

The day was so full of joy and love and family and friends and I’m beyond thrilled to share my favorites from the day!  Celeste and Brandon, thank you guys so much for letting me capture your day.  I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else last Saturday and I’m thankful to call you family!  Love you!

Nell, I still can’t believe you made wedding dresses for BOTH of your children’s weddings!
I know they were both a labor of love, but I hope you know how AMAZING of a job you did!

Not only did her mother-in-law make her dress, but her mom made her veil and wedding cake!
These are two incredibly talented families…

Her mom, mother-in-law, and soon to be step-daughter all in one photo.  This might be one of my all time favorite photos.

Celeste had two requests of her dress… that it made noise when she walked and that it twirled when she danced.
Nell was able to make both things happen!

  4. […] Some of you may not know that when I graduated from Clemson, I packed up a couple suitcases and moved to Brussels, Belgium to live and work alongside some missionaries and their two teenage kids.  Well, after that move almost 13 years ago, this family has actually become my family.  I’ve photographed them several times since turning this into my profession, including both of the weddings of those former teenagers (you can see Christen’s wedding HERE and Brandon’s wedding HERE).
