I met Mallory and Bradley through a recommendation from Mallory’s cousin who put a shootout on Facebook for the following weekend in need for a videographer. I told her that I was available and Mallory reached out to me via email pleading that I would capture their soon to be wedding day. I ended up connecting with Mallory’s mom, Kristeen, who told me about their love story and how their friends were telling the couple of their regrets not having a videographer for one of the most special days of their lives. Although last minute, I was booked!
It was a sunny mid-morning on Saturday, September 3rd, 2016 when I arrived at Vizcaya’s Bed & Breakfast. The bridal party got ready in the living room portion of the guest house with pop music and story-telling from each of the ladies, while the groom and his party were getting ready downstairs in the basement entertained by football, drinks, and comfortable couches.
I met with Mallory first. She was calm and collected. You’d hardly notice the anxious butterflies in her stomach from her desire to finally see and be with her soon to be husband. Her girl squad did an excellent job to keep her mind entertained on stories and inside jokes. On the other hand, Bradley and his crew got ready super fast! Although they did have to slow down a bit to learn how to fold their handkerchiefs properly.
My favorite part of the day was their handwritten vows that they wrote for one another and also wrote together. I was so blessed to have been part of their day and wish them the very best. Congrats to Bradley and Mallory, Always!
