Brianna and Oliver almost escaped from the chaos COVID wreaked on weddings. They were able to keep their original date, though they did have to change their reception venue partway through. Change can be good! Following their Catholic ceremony at Our Lady of Hope, the couple hosted a beautiful reception at Blue Bill Farm in Waterford.

Their May 8 wedding turned out to be one of the most beautiful days of the year so far. A little rain fell on the drive from the church to the reception at Blue Hill Farm in Waterford, but by the time we arrived, the sun was out and people were ready to have fun!

Brianna and Oliver opted not to have a First Look, so we did all couples photos and bridal parties photos after the ceremony. During golden hour, we took a few minutes to get some more photos of just the couple, and they are absolutely the best photos of the day! Scroll to see.
