When my dear friend Julie called and told me her “second-daughter” Brandi was getting married and after showing her my work really wanted Jon and me to shoot her wedding, I was thrilled. And after I met Jonny, Brandi and their families, I knew why they were so beloved to Julie. Brandi is a beautiful girl with an infectious smile, mischievous eyes, and heart of gold. And Jonny, well he’s one of those all-American guys with a tender heart and incredible strength all at the same time. One simply can’t help but be endeared to them quickly.
It was a windy day at their Grand Island Mansion wedding and these two (along with the wedding party and families) rocked it all day long! They even braved the strong gusts by the river in one of what is now one of my favorite portrait shots ever. Maybe it was foreshadowing for their ability as a couple to weather anything. Whatever it was, it was pure magic. A day filled with love, laughter, and all the happiness these two deserve, forever and always.
