ANDREA.AND.BRETT.::.THEIR.STORY.

not much more can be said about andrea & brett.

these two spared no expense when it came to planning the details. andrea's bridesmaids pieced their bouquet's together, while andrea hand painted all the signs directing & inviting her guests deeper into their story; andrea & brett's story. and now that the day had finally arrived, friends and family gathered poolside to be witness as two pledged their lives together. and, it was the details that i will remember... [and the lemon bars... and the tacos... and the home-made-red-velvet cupcakes... okay, so andrea & brett had some incredible food at their wedding]

you two rocked our socks off! from the amazing time we had during your engagement shoot to the final hug before you left your wedding as man-and-wife, we were excited to be a part of it all. and brett, i want to give you an extra special thanks for your kind words at the end of the day. carlie & i wish you the best in the rest of your story, and are so glad to have found two new friends.

and thanks to dane sanders for referring this one. here are just a few of our favorites, but you will have to check out the slide show because there were just too many moments to choose from...





the girls hung out upstairs as brett & his boys arrived at the mcdaniel's house for some photos. carlie snapped this moment of anticipation.



isn't she just stunning...

oh yeah, and the boutonnieres were handmade by the girls too.

i just love this first look. when i saw where andrea would make her entrance at the ceremony i was stoked... probably the coolest cacti i have ever seen [and the biggest]. and carlie caught this moment with brett as his thoughts cleared out everything but his approaching bride.
andrea's dad works in landscaping and probably has the coolest backyard ever. here's a shot i sniped from behind the bushes.






the 'hey we're married' shot.

like i said, andrea & brett paid attention to detail. i love it!

gorgeous light for the first dance.

and probably one of my most favoritest shots ever! [it was totally carlie's idea to grab the chair. and i am so glad we did]


drum roll please... meet mr. & mrs. brett zundel.
