I really don’t even know what to say about these two, and this day, other than I am madly in love with everything about it.
Carly & Remy have got to be one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. Their love is so pure, and their joy when around each other just beyond belief. I swear, every time I looked at them they were stealing a kiss or a special glance. It was magic.
I am now a huge fan of morning/brunch weddings. Coffee, mimosas, the Sunday “paper”, and Banana Pancakes- what’s not to live? The day ran absolutely FLAWLESS, thanks to Kristen of A Lovely Event Planning (seriously guys, hire her. Incredible.) It’s always a joy working alongside the talented videographers Molly & Cory, and the Silver Arrow Band was such a hit, and kept things lively & entertaining. My personal favorite moment was when Remy grabbed the mic and surprised Carly with a moving (and really good!) cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
I don’t want to ruin these photos with too much of my blabbering, so grab a fresh cup of coffee (or Bloody Mary) and dive into this precious day.

I literally could not have loved this wedding more if I tried.
I knew it was going to be a good day when I walked into the hotel wing & heard them before I saw them. Juliana was twer- I mean, dancing, and all of the bridesmaids were having the best time. Just good vibes all around. No stress, no drama. I think that had a lot to do with Juliana’s laid back attitude.
Watching Brendon get their sweet boy Benning ready was precious. In fact, watching Benning the whole day made my mama heart so happy. You could see how absolutely adored he was by not only his parents, but by both of their families and friends. They clearly have a tribe- a really good one.
After the ceremony at West Point’s Catholic Chapel, we headed to Trophy Point for bridal party pictures. However, the bottom dropped out of the sky all of a sudden, so we squeezed in what we could. I assumed Juliana & Brendon would want to take shelter. The wind was whipping, rain was pouring. "Juliana, do you want to go inside?" I asked. "Nope," she said, hiking up her dress and laughing. I love her. They kissed- her hair flying. It was perfect- that’s my kind of couple.
Their reception at the Thayer Hotel did not disappoint. I had a feeling it would be a wild one, and it was. The Digital Musicians Entertainment did an amazing job of keeping the party going (as always) and the crowd was lit. Like, I think J & B have blackmail pictures for years to come of most of the guests, haha.
We ended the night with a romantic sparkler exit (in which someone may have gotten their hand blown off. Jk...I think. I hope.)
I am seriously obsessed with these two humans. They remembered what a wedding day is all about. It’s not about the things, the decor. It’s about your love, your families coming together, celebrating the two of you.
Now, go live it up in Hawaii, you guys!
