All that mattered was the two of them.
Maggie told me in the weeks before the wedding, “I don’t want to sound selfish, because I love our friends and family and I’m glad they’ll be there to celebrate with us… but what matters most is the pictures of me and Brenton. As much time as we can set aside for Bride & Groom portraits, let’s do it, because this is the one day in our whole lives that will be all about us.”
God bless that girl.
Over the last year, we’ve come to adore Maggie & Brenton. It would have been a tragedy if we weren’t with them on the Big Day, and knowing that they changed their wedding date to bring McG along for the ride is such an overwhelming honor. From their stellar, fan-favorite engagement session, to talking about Maggie’s burgeoning photography business, right up to the last seconds of their wedding night, we just could not stop being excited for the road ahead of these two truly wonderful people.
Because the portraits of this bride & groom together on their wedding day were the most important thing to them, we decided to dedicate an entire post to it. Tomorrow, you’ll see LOTS of beautiful moments from Maggie & Brenton’s ceremony & reception, as well as some images of their amazing wedding party. But today, it’s all about them… getting ready, seeing each other for the first time, and wandering around Timarron Country Club just thrilled to pieces at the new life they’re about to start together.
Brenton sent over a beautifully engraved Marc Jacobs watch for Maggie to open before they saw each other for the first time…
I don’t think we’ve ever had a faster First Sight. Maggie RAN down that walkway to see her sweetheart!
Saturday may have been hot, but we had the most incredible blue summer skies…
Boy, you are wearin’ that suit. Ow OW!
Maggie’s sister Katy (one of my new favorite people) asked, “is it just me, or is Maggie the most beautiful bride in the world?” I told her I didn’t think it was just her…
I have to end with a shot that earned Mack a great big kiss. This is a real moment… no prompted laughter, no jokes in the background. Maggie & Brenton were just too happy to contain it, and he squeezed her really tight, and she threw her head back and laughed at the afternoon sun, and MAGIC HAPPENED.
We love you kids so much. We can’t WAIT to show you more of your incredible day… tomorrow!
