The first time I communicated with Britney, I knew right away that we were going to hit it off. I was instantly attracted to her personality and I had yet to actually meet her in person! Her warm heart and bubbly personality was present in every email and was confirmed by each and every person present at their wedding.
As Britney and I discussed how her and Gerard met, I was pleasantly surprised that he is originally from Ireland! (I could have sat with his relatives all day long at the wedding just listening to them)! She told me how they had met through Gerard's cousin, who was a high school friend of hers. They first met briefly back in high school during one of his visits to Canada. After graduation, Britney would join Gerard's cousin and her family at their cabin. By this time, Gerard had moved to Canada and also spent quite a bit of time at the cabin. It was New Years, 2013, that they really it off. Britney's snowmobile had broke down and Gerard (strategically) waited with her, while the others went to grab some tools. This gave them some time to get to know each other a bit more. Later that night they had their first kiss right before Gerard lovingly pushed Britney into the snowbank and their love story began!
I really fell in love with Britney and Gerard when I finally had the chance to meet them in person at their engagement session. Britney's smile is so contagious, I couldn't help but smile the whole session! It literally made me feel so lucky to have found these two beautiful people!
Throughout each part of the wedding day, there was one thing very apparent..the love these two have for each other and their families! There was one very special part of the day that they allowed me to document....the moment Gerard seen Britney for the first time. Thank you for trusting me in the process!
Britney and Gerard....first off, I want to apologize to Gerard for pronouncing his name incorrectly through the entire engagement session! Haha...we had a good laugh! But seriously...the two of you have a love that most people can only dream off! The way the two of you look at each other, laugh with each other and love each other's families like they are your own! It was truly a blessing to be able to join the two of you on your wedding day! Thank you!
