{HAPPY BIRTHDAY} to me - {HAPPY WEDDING DAY} to Carolyn & Brian | love stories

May 21, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
This last week was a BLUR. A week packed full of birthday parties, long nights with Gavin not sleeping great, work, and of course Melissa doing a little something awesome it seemed like every day to help me celebrate my birthday week. If you don't know about Melissamakah (and Milesmakah) you should ask sometime. It's a bit ridiculous.  Anyway, as the end of the week rolled around I geared up for Saturday's wedding on my birthday excited of course for Carolyn and Brian's big day - though if I'm honest pouting a bit about working on my birthday while Melissa and Gavin took the day to hang out.  The minute Laura and I showed up all of that went right away.  This couple is so laid back and so sweet it must have been easy for me to forget how great this wedding was likely to be.  From the moment we I walked in and Carolyn gave me my birthday hat I was pretty sure we were going to have a blast.

On task and on time all day, par for the course with Carolyn, we had more than enough time scheduled in for EVERYTHING they wanted.  We started hair and makeup at the Garden Room in the bridal suite with a team full of stylists and makeup artists, moms, family members and friends in and out all morning.  By noon the flowers had arrived, the details were shot, and we were well on our way to getting Carolyn all ready for the big day.

The rest went quick, except for a few important moments. Right before the first look Aaron - one of our favorite videographers, grabbed Brian to ask him a few quick questions about how we was feeling. As if we'd all forgotten why we were there except for him, Brian got quiet, calm, and smiled. He simply forgot to say all the cheesy taglines guys use over and over to express themselves and instead went right to the heart. I swear I saw Laura tear up, and all three of us were a bit at a loss for words with how sweet this guy's heart is for his now wife.

A few minutes later she walked up behind him and the day picked up again. His hand instantly to his mouth as he turned to see her their couples photos were nothing short of sweet as we stood back and just let things unwind.  The ceremony itself was less that 7 or 8 minutes, or so it seemed. Short and sweet and off to a delicious dinner getting the crowd ready to dance late into the night.

This was a perfectly Carolyn & Brian wedding filled with all the important people.  Thanks you two! If you're reading this RIGHT NOW you need to get back to Hawaii and enjoy the rest of your honeymoon! {miles}
