As I walked up to the insanely gorgeous Mansion at Tuckahoe, it was literally like stepping into a fairytale. The mansion is nestled against the Indian River Lagoon giving it some of the most breathtaking views along the Treasure Coast! It was everything Brittany and Robbie described it to be and more! But the lead up to this moment was not what they expected.
That very morning I received a text that Brittany had to go to the emergency room around 3am! Now coupled with the Covid situation that does not allow for partners to come in, it just added another layer of stress (and early morning) to the wedding day. Thankfully she would be ok and quickly recover physically from the stress, but what happened that morning would just further solidify their relationship and what Brittany and Robbie mean to each other.
Later that afternoon, we would hear this crazy story in detail shared through Brittany’s vows. As she was in the waiting room of that ER, she had to write down who her emergency contact would be. Naturally and without a second thought, it was Robbie. It was also in that very moment that she received the sweetest reminder, he would be that for her for the rest of their lives together.
Now, I know that would not be the ideal situation that any bride would wish to receive this reminder. Nevertheless, if you remember their story, you would understand just what a full circle moment this actually was. Feel free to click the link, but here’s just a snippet:
“He was sent into my life at that time to help me put those broken pieces back together…”
”…I think it’s something that you have to do yourself, but you don’t have to do it alone.
And he was brave enough to come into my life and hold my hand.” -Brittany
Fast forward to my arrival…and the moment I walked into her room I gave her the biggest hug! As I prayed over her and her future husband, we stood together and just asked for a sweet peace to fill them from head to toe and to surround their entire day and that is exactly what we felt! I am so grateful that even on a day that is filled with so many moving parts, to be able to take a second together not as photographer and client, but as friends to just breathe and take in the moment.
