Even some May showers couldn’t rain on Kimberly and Brian’s parade! It was such an on-and-off rainy day that they were still able to take a ton of photos outside during the rain breaks. Kimberly and Brian shared a beautiful first look, which shook off some of the pre-ceremony jitters. Brian adored her dress (how could you not), which Kimberly never thought she would have picked the dress she did, but it was absolutely perfect!
As guests began to arrive for the ceremony they were greeted with champagne before they took their seats in the European Gallery. The aisle was decorated with beautiful azalea bushes, which Kimberly and Brian took home to plant in their garden. The Piano Guys and Vitamin String Quartet were playing as guests took their seats and as they turned around to see Kimberly’s entrance down the aisle, they heard “Wildest Dreams” by Duomo (the Bridgerton cover). As the officiant introduced the newlyweds and they began the recessional, canons went off and pink flower petals sprinkled everywhere.
Kimberly and Brian did grand introductions of just the two of them and went into their first dance to “What We’ve Become” by Brother Bird. They included their two fur babies onto their cake and also had a wide array of donuts for everyone to enjoy. After the cake cutting, it was on to dancing! Kimberly had the most perfect flowy wedding dress for dancing and chose the classic, “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey to end on for their last dance. The newlyweds ended the night with a soft exit and hopped in the Aston Martin for a magical end to their beautiful wedding day.

Kimberly’s dress was absolutely stunning!
Such a dreamy first look!
We loved the mix of peonies, roses, and pink spray! This bouquet truly matched the romantic theme.
Is it just drizzling? Add an umbrella to your photos for a nice accent.
The flower petal canon excitement was real!
