After months of trying to decide what their wedding day would look like for Tom and Brianna due to Covid-19, they decided to move forward with their Cog Hill Country Club wedding. It was a gorgeous, early fall day filled with beautiful details, wonderful family and friends, and great celebration. I’m so excited to share a few of my favorite photos from the day with you.
I started the day at Brianna’s aunt’s lovely home, where she and her bridesmaids were getting ready. Her maid of honor, aunt and mother were there as she slipped into her stunning gown that looked like it was made just for her. As she walked down the stairs after getting ready, her family and bridesmaids were waiting anxiously. They were so sweet as they saw her for the first time as a bride. After a few family and bridesmaids photos out front, we headed to the church for their ceremony.
After a sweet, somewhat eventful, ceremony we headed to the beautiful Cog Hill Country Club where we took wedding party photos and photos of the bride and groom. The weather was perfect, with a slight breeze, as we rode out to the Cog Hill barn on a golf cart.
During the reception, guests enjoyed a lovely dinner as the best man and maid of honor gave heartfelt speeches. One of Tom’s younger brothers had to step in as best man due to a medical issue with his best man Tom, but gave a sweet, sentimental speech on the fly. Following speeches, some of the cousins stood up and sang a little song for the newlyweds, leaving the whole room in laughter.
After dinner, the couple celebrated with their first dance to Forever and Ever Amen. Tom was a pro at spinning Brianna around during their dance, prompting cheers from the guests. It was a perfect ending to the photographs of their day.
