When two souls are so perfectly matched like Pamela and Brandon’s, everyday feels like a real life fairytale. This happy couple was married at Brandon’s grandparents’ private estate in Greenwich, CT, in almost the exact spot they got engaged one year before!

As Pamela’s mother helped her into her gorgeous lace and tulle Monique Lhuillier wedding dress, her bridesmaids clinked mimosa glasses in a toast to their beautiful friend. Hidden under her dress were two sweet touches – a soft pair of ballet-inspired Repetto flats, and a piece of her grandmother’s wedding dress sewn into her own gown.

Brandon waited on the grounds of his family’s estate in anticipation of his Pamela’s arrival for their first look, a little nervous but mostly excited. The moment his eyes met hers, pure joy spread across Brandon’s face as he gave her the biggest hug. They walked the estate hand-in-hand, enjoying a few quiet moments together, surrounded by the astounding art and greenery of the grounds.

The entire day felt completely personal as 100 of their closest family and friends made their way to the outdoor ceremony to celebrate. One of the best parts of the day was when Pamela and Brandon exchanged their personal vows.  Neither knew what the other was going to say, and watching Brandon get emotional as he promised to spend forever loving Pamela brought tears to my eyes!

Every little detail felt like a dream. Pamela’s love for flowers truly showed as they were EVERYWHERE!  Petals floated in the pool, single blooms adorned the escort cards, and pink blossoms seemed to spill out of the signature drinks. Friends and family celebrated the newly married couple on the dance floor with an eclectic mix of fun Spanish music, oldies, and hits. Guests were sent home with Dough Donuts, a sweet end to a simply perfect day.

I’m so excited to share some of my favorite moments from this gorgeous wedding below! Thank you for including me in your special day, Pamela and Brandon!  Your private estate wedding felt like a real life fairytale and I am so happy for you both!
