Brandi + Joe | Married

St Mane’s Married on Saint (Anthony) Main

From the first email exchange, I was head-over-heels with how down to earth my bride Brandi is. Her now-husband (whoop, whoop) Joe is such a great compliment and their day was just remarkable + fun from the start!!

The details of the day were the perfect nod to fall. Brandi’s dress was perfectly on point! Of course it was as her sweet momma owns the amazing bridal shop Effies Bridal Trunk and was complimented with rich burgundy bridesmaid’s dresses. The floral from Munster Rose was OFF THE HOOK. Maybe I shouldn’t have been surprised after the adorable flower crown for their pup Juno at their downtown engagement session.

There were also many sweet moments to the day, rooted in family and love. Joe’s 10-month old niece was an honorary flower girl and made her way down the aisle in a wagon. Brandi had also arranged to give Joe his grandfather’s watch as a gift with a personal note from him, before his grandfather recently passed away. It was such a touching moment.

The night ended with crazy fun dances to live music and an amazing doughnut wall provided by Collected and Co. Plus the most amazing array of desserts by Farina Baking Company!

To Brandi and her crazy-competitive husband, you two are a winning team and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you both.
