I’ve known April and Bryan about 3 months. They have known me less than 2 months.
We met through a very crazy circumstance.
Bryan got in an accident on his motorcycle, and my husband Dameon was one of the first people to find him on the bridge and administer medical treatment until paramedics and police showed up.
If you missed that story, you can find it here.
When Dameon, my husband, told me that he saw on fb that Bryan proposed to April, I had this huge feeling in my gut. I needed to reach out to them and offer to photograph the wedding.
They had been through so much.
It was the least I could do.
After I reached out to April, she welcomed me with open arms.
April and Bryan are the biggest inspiration.
Their love is so unconditional and pure.
Their Viking wedding had me with my mouth hanging open in awe all night.
The venue was at their friend’s property, on a gorgeous lily-pad covered pond.
Big stumps with fire lined the aisle.
The groomsmen all wore kilts.
The décor was wood and nature inspired.
The ceremony was emotional to say the least.
April and Bryan surprised everyone by feeding each other their favorite things.
April loves bacon.
Bryan loves chocolate cupcakes.
They giggled as they spilled cupcake crumbs all over each other.
April and Bryan are part of motorcycle clubs.
They all brought their kuttes.
Which is a motorcycle vest to everyone who doesn’t know the slang.
Which I didn’t and probably sounded dumb all night every time I said vest LOL.
Bryan and April invited Dameon to the wedding.
It was the first time Bryan and Dameon had seen each other after the accident.
Dameon told me it was so special for him to be there and see all the people who love Bryan and are important in his life.
Also, no one except April and Bryan knew who Dameon was.
So..everyone thought he was my assistant.
A crappy assistant who spent a good chunk of time sitting watching football with the groomsmen before the wedding.
All their guests were the nicest people. So many came up and gave me a huge hug and told me how good of a job I did.
Actually, they all said “you guys did such a good job.”
I just couldn’t help but smile so big because it was so funny.
It was so weird having Dameon there.
It was also pretty cool.
April and Bryan’s wedding was everything a wedding day should be.
Full of laughter, surrounded by nothing but love.
