Brittani & Ben’s Sunday wedding at Riverdale Manor was just gorgeous. The weather was perfect and the details made everything uniquely them. Brittani went to school for film and photography and Ben is a chemist, so they mixed their two passions to create some fun centerpieces and other details scattered throughout the day. They opted to wait to ‘see’ each other until the ceremony, but they did have a few moments together beforehand with Ben blindfolded :)
I have to say that I really enjoy seeing these two together. You can tell right away the love and respect they have for one another. That they truly love the other for who they are and want to live this crazy life together. Even though many aspects of their day were DIY there was no feelings of stress or being rushed around them. They were so calm and ready to be married that it made the whole day slow down just enough to enjoy each and every moment. It was a pleasure being a part of their wedding!

Ben proposed to Brittani with the camera, so it was fun to have it be a part of the decor :)
Brittani’s beautiful dress.
The rings! Notice the chemistry symbols??
For the ceremony Ben wore a plain bow tie, but for the reception he spiced it up and rocked the chemistry symbols!

They spent just a few moments saying hello and talking about their soon-to-be ceremony.
Then it was time for pics with just the guys.
And the ladies.

I don’t know what was being said right at this moment, but Brittani looks a little suspicious.
They chose a different place for the ceremony on the grounds at Riverdale and it was lovely!

Props to Matt for always getting a great shot of ‘the whole picture’ of the ceremony!

After the ceremony we took just the two of them for pictures first.

We couldn’t pass up a couple more pics at Riverdale’s signature tree, believed to be over 300 years old!
This bring us to the reception details. Chemistry and Photography combined and we love it!
