Sarah and Ben’s wedding was straight out of a fairy tale, a beautiful Scottish fairy tale. Antique books were fittingly stacked as centerpieces and lined the aisle leading to the outdoor ceremony where the two librarians would wed. The groom donned a traditional kilt while the bride looked elegant in her Mori Lee gown. From start to finish, their day was unique, whimsical, and fit their personalities perfectly.

Although there were several highlights from Sarah and Ben’s wedding day, my favorite was when the groom serenaded his new bride with a charming rendition of “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson. Talk about romantic!

Sarah and Ben, thank you so much for trusting Josh and me to photograph your amazing day! It was truly one for the books!

~ Sarah Gudeman

In the bride’s words:
Sarah did a wonderful job photographing our wedding. I loved that she created a schedule for our wedding day that really helped everything run smoothly. I really appreciate all the hard work she put into making sure our day was perfect. Our pictures turned out perfectly. She captured so many priceless moments at the wedding and reception. I couldn’t be more happy with my decision to hire La Brisa.”
