Brianna + Chris | The Links at Riverlakes Wedding

Oct 28, 2018 | Wedding


When I got to meet these two love birds over dinner, I found out that they’ve been together for over 8 years and he loves playing video games while she loves trying to play video games. 

Their engagement session was so amazing, we went up to the mountains…where it was cold. There were lots of laughs and lots of breaks in the sunlight to get warm again.

wedding day:

power went out at the hotel just as the last bridesmaid was getting done with hair and makeup! It got warm in there, but everyone made it work and were in good spirits! Once Brianna put her dress on, she started getting emotional. I learned, as a mom, distractions are key (lol), so I started asking her questions about her Groom. It got her thinking about him rather than trying to hold back her emotions. It was actually fun learning about her groom.


Brianna did an emotional first look with her dad. His first response was “wow”! Once they had their moment together, he hugged his daughter tightly and said to me “Chris was the best son in law he could ever ask for for his daughter.” *Bring on the tears again!*

Chris and Brianna were so much fun to work with, I love their humor


Brianna did a surprise Hawaiian dance for her husband, and knocked it out of the park.


Groom got drunk the day before the wedding with a cousin he hadn’t seen in years. He felt sick all morning until he saw his bride and all that went away.

Groom danced and head banged with bride’s dad.
