Marenabrett feat

Today’s Wedding Wednesday will be told in the words of our featured bride, Marena. We love how much care and consideration went into Marena + Brett’s gorgeous wedding.

"From our first look photos to the ceremony at the church, and especially the reception, I could not have asked for a more perfect day. I felt beautiful with an elegant dress that fit tightly and emphasized and complimented every curve; it was everything I could have asked for and more. As we turned around for our first look, I knew the rest of my life would be filled with the wonder and excitement that reflected in my soon to be husband’s eyes.

"My husband, the best men and bridesmaids were ecstatic, laughing and enjoying every moment of the photos. My most favorite people in the world all in one place made our day that much more special…the boys and their whiskey only added to the excitement of the moment! The day was surreal, passing by in a blur of adrenaline, laughs, cheers and prayers that this moment would never end.

"Being born in Egypt and raised Coptic, the ceremony was very traditional. My husband, recently converted and coming from a less traditional family, did not seem not to mind the lengthy ceremony and enjoyed every moment. His family and our guests appeared to enjoy the beauty of our culture and tears were shed in appreciation of our moment.

"The day was overwhelming, looking back on the cascade of events and stress preceding the wedding, to the build up of every photo opportunity, stress shed from my shoulders and I felt like I could finally breathe! I could look forward to the future and adventure with my new family and more importantly…being able to live with my husband as his wife.”

All our congratulations to Marena + Brett, whose joy and love-filled wedding gallery from photographer Kayce Shoffner absolutely made our week.
