you all know what we do about two wedding weekends (we don’t!), but this was a special case. matt lived with brody for three years in college and when they asked us to shoot their wedding we just couldn’t say no. now friends, this was no ordinary wedding. this was a surprise wedding! what?!? i know…that’s what we said. we agreed to shoot knowing that if anyone in the whole world could pull this off it would be brody and trish- and oh, they pulled it off! brody is a youth pastor and trish spends a lot of time with the church as well so their first decision was made for them, they would have it at their church on a sunday morning…during the service. from there the plan was for brody to do the children’s sermon about getting married by showing them how a wedding works. there were small exclamations and whispers as the congregation began to catch on to what was happening. when brody finally invited trish to walk down the aisle, eyes were glistening all around me. it was quite the surprise! here are a few of our faves:

meet trish, isn’t brody sooo lucky?!
one of my most favorite shots ever, the detailing in her dress was amazing:
headed to the church, i like the slight edginess to this photo, totally goes with this couple’s style!
brody about to get things started, i just cannot imagine what he’s feeling, hardly anyone in that church knows what’s about to happen and i know he was totally excited but didn’t want to give it away- so much emotion!!
look at these two, gosh, their love is so evident!
their reception was a fiesta for the whole church! the decorations were awesome and the food was delish (and homemade!!). we just couldn’t resist this shot:
and they’re off! where they went after this bubbly exit was a surprise too, even to trish!
trish & brody, you know we love you. you know we think you rock. you know you threw an awesome wedding and party, but let me tell you something. we love you. we think you totally rock and your wedding was just perfect for you and tons of fun!
