Brandon and Julie knew of each other in highschool but were never really close. A few years later, BBM became really popular again when it became available for phones other than Blackberries…remember that?! Everyone changed their facebook statuses to their BBM pin? Her friends teased her that it was a little weird when he added her, but they started chatting back and forth and I’d say it worked out! Go BBM! ;)
Hearing these two talk about each other too is so amazing. Brando talked about how he fell in love with Julie’s eyes right away and she says she’s most proud of him everyday for who he is as a person and for how deeply he loves her. Every single time I asked them a question, he would turn towards her, cuddle, or rub her knee, or grab her hand and answer. He never stops engaging with her either. He kept asking her if she was ok, what she wanted to do next and making sure she had a hand to hold when walking over rocks.
I think everyone knows how sentimental I am, and Julie is right there with me. Hearing her talk about how he proposed was the best! She said she was a bit of a brat! haha also where we are similar ;) They were in San Francisco and Carl (what they call the intense fog that settles over the city) had rolled in and you couldn’t even see the bridge. She kept wanting to go back, and was mad that he sent the cab away and didn’t make him wait, cause how long would they be really if they couldn’t even see the bridge?!?! She said there was also a super creepy tunnel behind them that was really creeping her out and she kept glancing back and asking questions and the poor guy kept trying to be romantic and start his proposal speech!
Their engagement photos in Banff were nothing short of MAGICAL and it felt like we stepped onto the real life set of Frozen. (If you missed them, check them out HERE>>) For their wedding we decided to go back to the exact same spot we did their engagement photos!
Their wedding day was INCREDIBLE. They assembled a dream team of vendors. Ones I fan girl over on Instagram constantly haha. It was an honour to work with so many badass women to help put together the wedding of Julie and Brando’s dreams!!
Watching Brando and Julie truly live in every moment of their day was my favourite part. The forecast wasn’t the greatest, and it rained leading right up to the ceremony. They never once faltered or let it take away their joy. They just embraced everything that was coming with their day and it was beautiful! They focused on each other and their family and friends and you could FEEL the love. There were tears all around, silent moments where they took time to pause and really take in their day, and epic moments of loud celebration….much of which happened on the dance floor haha.
Brando and Julie THANK YOU so much for having me as a part of your day! It meant so much to me and it was one of my favourite days!! I love the memories I have with you guys!!
Love you guys!!!!
