Brittany & Kory's Modern Gatsby Morning Wedding at the Graylyn Estate
Wedding: 13 October 2018 | Posted: 16 January 2019
There's something magical about morning weddings. Starting your day all glammed up, steaming coffee while getting ready, sunrise photo sessions, a feeling of freshness overlaying the whole day. Brittany & Kory's wedding day—with an eye-popping 8:00 a.m. First Look (check out Kory trying to keep it together!), followed by a 10:30 a.m. ceremony—was no exception. Everything they did felt fresh and sweet and loving and perfect.
We learned, halfway through the day, that the entire Graylyn Estate was running on generators, having lost power from storms earlier in the week. They handled it pristinely, and no one was any wiser. What everyone spent time noticing was all the personal sweetness that went into Brittany & Kory's day: Brittany's hair and makeup was done by talented friends; Kory's groomsmen all chipped in to get him a wedding day watch; Brittany & Kory both wrote personal vows, which Kory worked really hard before the ceremony to memorize; Brittany escorted herself into the ceremony, which was officiated for them by a mutual friend. Possibly our favorite sweetly personal element of the day was the couple's 10-year-old daughter, Ellen, whose emotion warmed the entire room, from her tears as Brittany came down the aisle to her touching toast, to the unadulterated bliss on her face as she shared a dance with Kory (I may or may not have wept the whole song, and am definitely tearing up remembering it!).
We are so grateful for the privilege of being a small part of this awesome couple's memories, and are very excited to share some of our favorites from their wedding day with you. Enjoy their photos below, and send them some love in the comments!
