Briana and Patrick met in school, both studying to become anesthesiologists. Just a few days before her 30th birthday, Patrick told Briana he had a surprise for her. She assumed it would be a birthday gift, but when the car started to drive her “down memory lane,” stopping at their first date spot, the place they first kissed, and the place they exchanged “I love yous” for the first time, she knew something big was in store.
Patrick got on one knee on the walking bridge, and Briana, through tears, said yes! They walked to grab dinner, where a dozen friends were waiting to celebrate, including her best friend from Asheville! Patrick had pulled off the perfect surprise, and he’d even recorded it all with a GoPro, so Briana could look back on it forever. (As videographers, we approve of this, of course.)
The happy couple wanted a rustic wedding, one part fairytale and two parts fun! The ceremony was filled with gorgeous details, but when Briana and Patrick think back on their wedding, they remember the people who were there to celebrate with them most. Briana’s bridesmaids reminded her throughout the day to soak in every moment. Patrick lost in rock paper scissors, so Briana got to shove cake in his face. And the dance floor is where this couple really shone - they look back and laugh about how much fun they had breaking it down with all of the people they love most. We loved capturing Briana and Patrick’s wedding day, and we loved getting to know them, too! We know they’ll look back on this day with joy forever.
