I can't remember the last time I shared so many sneak peeks all at once, but there were so many details that went into this day and such a fabulous team to pull it all together I just couldn't leave one of these out, and honestly I wanted to share 50 more! Brittney Bonnie and Scotland Bonnie seriously captured my heart the first time I met them for their engagement pictures. They were in love, and everything in the park that day knew it, and now on to their winter Steam Punk themes wedding, their chemistry remained the same, strong, sound and unwavering. They knew exactly what they wanted, and how they wanted to display their love, and honestly the rest of us were just along for the wonderful ride. I don't think Scotland expected Brittney to wear white, as romantic darks were true to the Steam Punk era, but when he saw her a vision in white, adorned in the beautiful cape her mother hand made for her, he couldn't hold back the tears. It was even several hours after their vows I could hear him whisper to her how beautiful she looked, how perfect she looked and how happy she made him...goosebumps! I hope you love these sneak peeks as much as I do!
