Today we are thrilled to share with y'all a few of the professional pictures from Mitchell + Bryn's wedding! Their photographer (SarahSmithStudio) did an incredible job capturing their day with such amazing portraits.
It was a beautiful, beautiful day. God brought Mitchell + Bryn together in such an amazing way, and they are truly a match made in heaven. Their day was so centered on Jesus and what He had done in their lives. We hope you enjoy sharing in the day, in this little way, through these pictures.

They decided not to see each other until the ceremony, so the very first look they had was when Bryn walked down the aisle.

Cutest sight of the whole wedding! Rebecca was the junior bridesmaid and Bryn's baby nephew, Logan, was the junior junior groomsman. She pulled him in- sleeping-in a wagon. It was adorable!

This little miniature groomsman was a trooper literally ALL DAY except for this moment in which he had apparently just had enough of everything. =)
Mitchell + Bryn had a very delicious taco bar for their reception meal.
Cutting the cake time!
Nine of mom's siblings and/or siblings' spouses came from Pennsylvania, New York, Indiana, + Florida, to attend the weddings. We were so blessed to have them + a whole host of cousins as well!
This is so them. =) Joking about something, apparently, right before the bouquet toss.
We hope you enjoyed these pictures from Mitchell + Bryn's special day! If you missed the livestream, you can watch the wedding video here. Stay tuned for Mitchell + Bryn's love story, coming sometime next month!
