Carson and Brennen’s wedding at Club Lake Plantation in Apopka, Florida was to.die.for!
Early September weddings are known to be a little warm in Florida. Carson and Brennen’s day was no exception. It was a warm summer day for a beautiful Central Florida wedding but it was also so beautiful. I don’t know what it is about Club Lake Plantation, but on warm, summer evenings, the light is just magical. The way the light shines through the canopy trees is just breathtaking.
Not only was this wedding amazing, but it was so much more special to me. Carson just happens to be my best friend of 20 years. We grew up together since we were 8 and 9 years hold. We have also known Brennen for quite a long time as well. You see, Carson and I know each other from being on the same competition dance team, and Brennens sister was on it as well. We spent a lot of days sleeping over with his sister and I just knew that ONE day Brennen and Carson were going to be something special to each other. We just could have never imagined just exactly HOW special.
What also makes this wedding a bit different is that not only did I photograph it, but you may see my face appear in some of the photos…because I was also a BRIDESMAID. With the help of an amazing photographer friend who was my amazing second shooter, I was able to pull this off for my best friends!
But now back to their love story…..
A few years ago he proposed to Carson at his families cabin in Montana, which just happens to be where they are right now for their honeymoon! They had a little bit of an engagement session because Brennen was in the Marine Corps and Carson was heading off to grad school!
Their wedding was set for May 2020, and than covid….but what’s a few more months when you have a lifetime awaiting you! They pushed off until September and it could not have been any more perfect!
There was hardly a dry eye as Carson made her way down the aisle to her husband, and the whole reception was filled with laughter and dancing!
Carson + Brennen, I could sit here and wish you both the best, and the happiest marriage, but for one….I am going to be right there until the end of time to watch that happen, and I do not have to wish for that because there is not 2 people more meant for each other in the whole entire world! Now hurry back from Montana so we can reminisce over the best day ever! xoxo
