Brianna & Jordan Californian Summer Wedding

I was about to prepare a big end of year post with my highlights and favourite images from the year gone by… But then I realised this wedding has been sitting on the shelf all year and probably was the photographic highlight of my year. I’m incredibly thankful to Brianna and Jordan for not just this wedding day but the trip that came about because of it. My first time to America and so many incredible experiences that came with that.

This wedding felt like an absolute fairytale to me. From the location to the inexhaustible list of attractive people involved starting off with the couple themselves.. Brianna is a full time model which makes sense the second you see her face, and if we’re honest Jordan probably could be a model as well. The vows as well.. from these too.. had me in tears.. I don’t think I’ve ever heard such beautiful vows. I’ll include them further down in the post because they were incredible.  Anyway I could go on and on about this wedding but I think it’s better to just show you the photos. Enjoy – JM

Jordans Vows: “My love, there’s not much I can say about you, your heart, and your spirit that everyone doesn’t already know. Everyone that has ever been graced by your presence knows how honestly caring and kind you are. Everyone knows of the love that you have for each and every person you meet. People know how you would drive around with lunch bags while out on castings for work to give to the homeless people you came across, or your huge heart for people with special needs. People see and recognise the way you interact with others, your infectious laugh, and your extremely humble spirit. People obviously know how extremely gorgeous you are. But Brianna, there are things only I know about you, things in our relationship that have brought us where we are now. All of those other things are part of what makes you special and are why everyone loves you, but I love you for so much more than that. I love you for who you are to ME.
You are my support and best friend. I want to thank you for being that. I want to thank you for being a true light in my life and an example of God’s love. You shine so bright Brianna. God has created you to do amazing things, and now you and I are partners through life. And just as iron sharpens iron, it’s your and my responsibility to lift each other up. I believe in us. I believe wholeheartedly that God made you for me, and me for you. I believe in the sanctity of marriage. I believe that marriage is good. I believe that marriage is special, and I believe that marriage lasts. I’m confident that the same amazing God that brought us together will keep us together. The same love that we share at this very moment will be the same love that we share forever. I promise to do my part in that. I stand here today promising to grow old with you. But more than that, I promise to remain young with you. I promise to always play Wii with you, or one-on-one beer pong in the backyard with you. I promise to always stand up for you and to protect you with all that I am. I promise to always keep copying whatever you do, because not only do I love you, but also I look up to you. I trust you, and admire everything about you. I simply ask that you continue to love me as much as you love everyone on this earth. But above that, I ask that you continue loving the Lord the way you do. I genuinely thank God for you and always will. I love you, and at this very moment there is nowhere else I’d rather be than promising my forever to you.”

Brianna’s Vows: “I knew I wanted to marry you right after meeting you. I’ll never forget coming home after the night we first met. I immediately called Maddie and said, “I love him. I’m going to marry him.” I was so excited. I remember feeling complete for the first time. My soul had found its match. From that moment I never wanted to imagine a world where you weren’t in it. We grew up two minutes away from each other, and somehow never met. It took a whole 6,000 miles for us to meet. You’re my real life fairytale. We became best friends instantly. You’re truly my best friend. You’re the one I laugh with, cry with, dance in the kitchen with, and dream with. You’re my person, and I’m yours. I’ve never gotten sick of being with you. No amount of time ever feels like enough. Everything I do, and everywhere I go, I want you with me. Everything’s better when we’re together. I get to travel the world and see so many beautiful places, but my favourite place to be is home with you. You make me feel like I can do anything. You truly believe I can do all things. You make me feel beautiful and funny. You even think I am a good singer, which is how I know you really do love me. I found myself when I found you. You’ve changed my life in so many ways, and I am forever grateful for the person I’ve become with you. I promise to let you talk about fall until my ears bleed. I promise to not only forever love you, but forever like you as well. I promise to never go to bed angry. I promise to always be your biggest fan. I promise to watch football with you because I know you love it. I promise to learn how to communicate better. Even though I don’t like it, I promise to wear my hair pulled back tight because I know how much you love it. I promise to keep you young, and continue to push you outside of your comfort zone. I promise to never give up on our love, or us because I know we have that special kind of love. I promise to love you for the rest of my days. “Across the years I will walk with you, in deep green forests, on shores of sand, and when our time on earth is through, in heaven too you will have my hand.”

Phil - The editing it’s on another level . Great stuff!

Casey - Beautiful pictures! Would be be able to ask the bride where she got her beautiful dress?

Che Birch-Hayes - Lots of photographers scoff at saying they dont move the dress or place it somewhere, but the shot you have done of the dress looking through the archways is testament to why it can be just so cool. I’m pretty sure any bride would be happy to have an amazing shot like this! What an amazing story, every pictures is brilliant 🙂

What an absolute treat it was to be a part of this wedding. Alyssa and Glen are just incredible people and the moment I met them and heard what they were planning I was hanging out for their wedding day to happen. So much style so much grace… It really did all fall into place… from the incredible dress by Mandy Nichols who isn’t just mates with Hugh Jackman but makes costumes for all the big movies from The Great Gatsby to the Wolverine Films and everything in between, to the amazing styling of the ceremony at the Carriageworks, the wonderful bridal party outfits, incredible food. It just ticked all the boxes photographically. But personally too. I think there was just so much joy evident in the celebration and so many moments that I just felt so so thankful that I get to do this for a job. I’m always humbled to be invited into people’s special day. But even more so weddings like this one. And of course it was a huge privilege to shoot photos alongside the best videographer in the country right now Teppo Haapoja from Heart Visuals. Check his incredible video at the bottom of the post.

I feel like I’m starting to say this a lot but these two were just so so lovely in front of the camera. If we’re honest there’s an awkwardness when someone points a camera at you. I’ve felt it. I think most of us have. But there are some couples who just have this wonderful way of just melting into one another when you point a camera at them. It’s so beautiful when a couple just naturally interact with each other in such an affectionate way without a hint of awkwardness in front of camera. These guys were the perfect example of that couple. They have a rare love and it was an honour to photograph them. I’m so excited for their wedding next year.
