Real Wedding : Passionate Romance

Some of the best moments of working at a wedding venue are, of course, the weddings that take place. But...we at The Bradford get super excited when the photographers from these weddings send over their favorite shots for us to use and share with you! And this set of photos, courtesy of Blest Studios, should shock you (in the best of ways!) just as it did for us...So, go on and take a look for yourself at these stunning photographs from Kelsey & Matt's special day! 

This photo was our absolute favorite from the bunch--so we had to share it right away! Not only does it show the lively personalities of bride & groom, it perfectly captures the joy and happiness of the bridal party on this wonderful day of celebration. In addition, the shining rays of sun add a bright and lovely touch!

We also could not help but share these wonderful pictures of the bride and her gorgeous brides maids. The eclectic and assorted color scheme really made each one stand out, while adding beautiful pops of color in these photos. In addition, we love the distressed brick back-drop used here! We have not seen many brides take advantage of the brick alcoves we have at The Bradford, but they picture so well...Wouldn't you agree?!

For those of you who follow The Bradford, you likely know that we are predominately an outdoor venue--with gorgeous landscaping, a beautiful side garden, and unique terrace--all of which have hosted several beautiful outdoor ceremonies! But, what many people may not realize and take advantage of for their ceremony space is the incredibly chic and modern ballroom we have on-site. With a wall of windows, two lovely sets of french doors, and shimmering chandeliers, this space is a great option for indoor ceremonies! 

Kelsey and Matt's wedding had a few unique and touching details we could not pass up on sharing! The two chose to feature a Fallen Soldier Table at the reception, to honor and remember Kelsey's father on their special day. This touching element not only was personal for the couple, but was a beautiful and thoughtful way of honoring those service members who have fallen in the line of duty. Each element on the table is signifying and symbolizing in some way, and this table in particular was a beautiful and sentimental piece for remembrance. 

Another unique and fun element was their gift table! Traditionally, couples display some sort of guest-book for attendees to sign and leave a short, personal message. However, there is a growing trend with brides to find unique and different ways to have their guests share congratulations. The super popular message-in-a-bottle is not only super cute, but is both more memorable for the newly weds as it is for the guests! 


Now, these next pictures will hopefully take your breath away just as they did for us. Kelsey and Matt were certainly one of our most trendy and edgy couples we have seen at The Bradford. We absolutely loved their awesome personalities, and were so glad to be a part of their special day! 

But brace yourselves because these stunning photos certainly share the intimacy this couple has for one another-- & passion is certainly in the air!
