What moment were you most looking forward to seeing in the photos/video? Candid moments from the wedding- Brandon

How did you two meet? (Tell us all those little details!) We started playing ultimate frisbee together in 2011 and had mutual friends that we all hung out together with. I was out with some friends one night in 2018 and we ended up hanging out that night after drinks. Two of our friends decided after that night that they were going to try and hook us up together. And it worked.

Tell us about THE dress! What made you fall in love? I was looking for something different that screamed beach vibes. I was looking for a romper at first but was browsing through google one day and came across the top at Davids Bridal. I was in love. I didn't like the skirt that came with it so I decided to start looking Etsy where I found the skirt. I honestly didn't know if it was going to come in time because it was being shipped from Ukraine but in the end it all worked out.

Chantel's dress was perfect for their wedding day. Her jeweled top and loose bottom made for the perfect wedding vibe. We absolutely loved the two piece style she incorporated.

What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it? Past Lives by Borns. Brandon had introduced me to the band and we had played more times than I can count. We both agreed that the lyrics to the song fit perfectly with our relationship.

Describe what you felt when you saw your bride on your wedding day: I was elated- Brandon

Describe what you felt when you saw your groom on your wedding day: Nervous being in front of a bunch of people but focusing on Brandon and his smile made it feel like everything around me was a blur.- Chantel

What was the most emotional part of the day for you? Father/Daughter dance. My brother is estranged and my father passed away a few years ago so I was worried that I wasn't going to have anyone there for me but my brother made it there. I chose my dads favorite song and when it came on my siblings and I couldn't help but get emotional.- Chantel

Talk about emotional. There was not a dry eye in sight during Chantel's dance with her brother. We know not everyone you love and care about can be at the wedding, but moments like these always feel extra special.
