And a big “Thank-you” back to Holly and Zack for choosing Braxton to shoot their wedding.
When Braxton arrived at Holly’s place, Nika Vaughan was just finishing up her makeup.
Holly’s dress, designed by Watters & Watters, and her veil were all hanging and ready to be put on.
Holly’s bridesmaids were right by her side to help her climb into the dress.
The rest of the wedding party (who looked fantastic as well) had their hair and makeup done by Strange Beauty Show.
She looked gorgeous.
Zach was getting cleaned up as well.
He was showered, shaved, and putting on his hitchin’ clothes.
His groomsmen were there while he got ready, showcasing their talents. Impressive!
Everyone was ready to go!
Holly staged this shot right before the ceremony. It was the closest they could get without actually seeing each other!
Zach took his place up front next to his groomsmen.
Zach was truly moved by the sight of his bride.
Everyone had to reach for their hankies.
Their excitement and happiness boiled over as they delivered their vows to each other.
And with a kiss, they were man and wife!
Braxton grabbed the friends and family for some group pictures before heading into the cocktail hour.
Some fun with the wedding party.
It was a beautiful day to be outside for the cocktail hour. Their day was held at The Cheney Mansion in Oak Park- what a perfect place to get married!
And it’s always a great day to play bags.
While the guests enjoyed cocktails and company, Braxton set out to shoot details from the day.
Apples and hearts were everywhere! Perfect for a fall wedding.
The cake topper, made from Scrabble tiles.
The flowers for the day were designed by the talented people at Asrai Garden.
Zach and Holly take a quick breather before making their grand entrance.
Introducing the happy couple!
So in love….
…with the dance floor! After an amazing meal catered by Pure Kitchen Catering, the guests strapped on their boogie shoes and danced into the night.
Thanks for choosing Braxton to photograph your wedding, Holly and Zach! Your day looked amazing!
