Brittany and Keith’s Villa Antonia wedding will always be unforgettable to me. It was a fairy tale wedding of an amazing couple – the wedding, the couple, the family, the venue….all gorgeous in every way. It will also be a wedding that Matt and I mention frequently, because I was really really sick. I’ve never missed a wedding, so when I got food poisoning and was at the hospital a couple of days before, I thought Brittany and Keith’s wedding would be my first miss. Matt and I like to be extra safe, so we called a backup photographer to possibly take my place, and a lighting assistant. At the end, we decided the bond we have with our couples is too strong and our bride’s peace (at knowing and feeling comfortable with her photographer) is paramount, and since I was able to go, we’d shoot it ourselves.
I definitely felt strong enough to shoot, but not carry all my gear or be 100% myself, so I owe a million thanks to Matt who did double duty that entire day, and Fred (our amazing lighting assistant!) who carried my bags and brought me juice, through most of the reception. I’m so glad I didn’t miss this wedding, and seeing it published in Southern Weddings, makes me do a happy dance. Matt and I adore Brittany and Keith, and we definitely think their wedding was a true life fairy tale.

Congratulations Brittany and Keith! Happy newlywed life…we hope you are having fun on the beach…and enjoying some of the sunshine for us! : )
