Olivia & Brennen October 18, 2014
Olivia, on her wedding day, was giggly, glowing and totally in the moment with her groom Brennen, all day. We did their pictures before the ceremony, which always helps to relax the rest of the day. Their day included many other non-traditional elements. For her toast to her son, the grooms mother read amazing excerpts from her journal, reflecting on her son, and recited a letter to Santa Brennen wrote as a child: he asked for socks for his mother, to help with her stinky feet, and thick underpants for his father, to help with the farts. Olivia and her father’s first dance was to Cat Steven’s “Wild World”, and the dance floor got wild when the military groomsmen started loosing clothes to Abba’s “Dancing Queen”. As a mother of young children myself, i remember leaving that night, hoping that i will do right by my children, as these parents have done for theirs. Olivia & Brennen’s wedding was clearly a celebration of family, while still being “their big day” done their way.
