Everyone woke up buzzing with excitement from the night before. It’s time to get Brianna and Joel married! The girls gathered at the venue for hair and make up while the guys had an easy morning at home.
First looks are adorable. The groom’s face tells it all. He’s ready for Brianna to be his wifey.
The wedding party headed on an adventure to take photos around town. This fun bridal gang got the party started early.
