It was a bitter cold, rainy Saturday. Christmas was right around the corner. There is something about a wedding that close to Christmas that has an extra element of excitement, warmth and love. We bundled up and headed out – umbrellas in tow – for Samantha and Brian’s big day. Enjoy!
Samantha had her brother Matthew as her Man of Honor. I love when brides throw old traditions out the window and have people stand up with them that are closest to their hearts regardless of gender. Matthew was an amazing Man of Honor and helped and supported Samantha amongst every step – as I imagine he does on a daily basis.We’d never met Brian before due to the fact that he is currently serving our country in Okinawa Japan, so we were excited to meet him for the first time and watch he and Samantha say “I do.”
I think every girl loves a man in uniform! And Brian looked amazing in his.
Hello. Are you kidding me? So amazingly beautiful. And yes, that’s what I call smiling with your eyes. Roger has a way of capturing my favorite images of brides…
and grooms for that matter!Because Samantha and Brian were having a evening wedding, they opted to see one another before the ceremony. We had to somewhat stay inside due to the weather – but I think it was a blessing in disguise because we got some amazing images of them wrapped up in each other.
Our few minutes spent outside were wet and cold, but with two people in love you get nothing but HOTNESS!Samantha & Brian’s wedding was at the amazing 9th Street Abbey. Everything at the venue was inviting and warm and every detail was executed perfectly!Samantha’s dad is the father that every girl dreams of having. He made sure his daughter’s day was perfect and the wedding of her dreams. Tyrone from Millennium DJs kept the dance floor rocking the entire night!Samantha & Brian – Your love is admirable. Your commitment – virtuous. You have already faced grave hardships in your relationship with being separated and the pain that seperation can cause two people who just want nothing more than to enjoy one another’s company and to be enfolded in the other’s arms. Moving to another country will be a difficult change, but an important thing in a marriage is changing together and enduring the bumps with unconditional love. We know you can do just that and are happy to have been a part of the beginning of something extraordinary.
Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness, and the utmost gratitude to you both!
