Here’s the thing: no wedding has ever been done twice. Details, color schemes, and venues might be shared between one set of newlyweds in New Mexico and the next, but you can’t carbon copy love! Each couple, each unparalleled story of romance is a harmony of separate notes and moments acquiescing under perfect timing to create some melodic and never-before-heard sound.
With that in mind, you’ll have to trust us that boy, did Andrea and Brian’s wedding day sing! Even after hearing the song of so many lovebirds through Shayla Cristine Photography before, this particular one plucked at our heartstrings like never before.
And how could it not?! From the shimmering hair pieces that made Andrea’s face light up with angelic glow, to Brian’s classically stylish watch and perfectly coordinated cufflinks, every accessory and detail was to die for.
For Andrea and Brian, a timeless look was a must to match the everlasting foundation of love and friendship between them, and they spared no expense to reach this goal. Andrea’s Kitty Chen couture gown with delicate beading and layers of ethereal tulle sparkled as she floated down the aisle to marry her love; Brian’s team of groomsmen in sleek black suits were there to greet her, as well as her soon-to-be husband, of course!
For each high-quality, ageless facet of the day, though, there were at least a dozen completely unique, personal details that made the day truly theirs.
Take Sam, for example. A stuffed sloth, complete with his very own sleek black tuxedo, totally stole the show! After traveling the world with Andrea and Brian, it seemed only fitting that he have his own front row seat for the wedding ceremony that would join his two favorite people together for life.
We can’t thank Andrea and Brian enough for allowing the Shayla Cristine Photography to blend in and capture all the couture details of their day!
