Meet the Van Bruggens!

Kimberly and Ethan are MARRIED!  We're so excited for them! 

Andrew and I had the pleasure of meeting Kimberly and Ethan through our church.  We were actually present on the day they met (thanks, Heather!), and we all went out for pizza after church at Cogan's.  Seriously... you hear people talk about öh, they're perfect for each other...".  Well, it's 100 kabillon percent true in this case!! 

RAINY DAYS DO  MAKE FOR PERFECT WEDDINGS!!  Did you know that?!  Despite humming Alanis Morrissette to myself ALL AFTERNOON (ït's like raaaaayyyyeeeeyaaaaaaiiinnnnn... on your weddinnnn daaay"), the light and airy rooms at Noah's Event Venue allowed for us to still capture immensely gorgeous moments throughout the entire day. 

Melding their upbringings and similarities into their wedding theme, they chose a travel-based vibe for their wedding.  The blue color scheme is so very pretty (hello, dreamy/delish cake!), and their planning certainly paid off.  You'll see what I mean when you scroll through the images!   Clair and I had a blast working at this wedding at Noah's Event Venue, and I know you'll have just as much fun checking out these highlights from their big day.
