The minute we showed up at Harbour View the morning of Chad & Gisele’s wedding, it was already raining. When we entered the bridal suite I was expecting to find a worried bride, but instead we found the same sweet, smiling Gisele ready to marry her fiancé. When I found Chad to take some pre-ceremony photos of the guys, I found him with not an ounce of stress or anxiety. In fact, he couldn’t stop smiling and laughing with his groomsmen and when I commented on it, he told us how happy he was to be marrying Gisele. You could feel the anticipation in the air. He had said that marrying her was the easiest decision of his life. And I could see it was in the sweet moment of the look on Chad’s face the second he saw Gisele coming towards him down the aisle.
Chad and Gisele, what can I even begin to say to you? First off, THANK YOU. Thank you for the honor of including us in your beautiful day. Thank you for trusting us from the get-go. You two have touched my heart and I just know you’ll have an amazing life together. xoxo, Sara
Ceremony time! The sax and keys definitely added something special to their ceremony.
Love the little smile her mom and Gisele exchanged as she walked up to meet Chad.
Just look at the way he’s looking at her! You can see in his face how ready he is to marry her and how in love with her he is. So, so sweet.
MARRIED! We see that ring, Chad! 😉
The rain stopped for a bit so we took advantage of that with some portraits!
The infamous Gisele-wink… I love it! How adorable is she??
Too cute, you two. 😉
Gisele, you are S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G.
One of my absolute FAVORITES below.
Love. You two were so peacefully happy and I just loved photographing it.
And then, much to our surprise, Chad busted out breakdancing and Adam and I were just floored (no pun intended). You can check out some of his moves on the video at the very bottom of this blog post!
I feel the need to explain a bit of the hilarious moment here… Chad’s grandma started going around the dance floor feeding guests banana pudding while they were dancing. She was TOO funny!
And because I am so in love with the wedding trailer that Adam did for their wedding, I’m sharing it again here. 🙂
