Jamie & Brandon

Jamie and Brandon’s wedding was an example of simplicity at its finest. There were no color schemes, ornate decorations,  bridesmaids or best men, just love. The couple met through a mutual friend and immediately felt chemistry upon being introduced. Brandon would later admit he knew Jamie was the one the night they had their first date. We’re thrilled that they chose the O. Henry Hotel for their special day. Green Valley Grill had long been a favorite of the bride and her parents and the couple thought the hotel would provide the idyllic, elegant setting for their wedding. On the first warm day of May, they wed in an intimate ceremony before 44 of their closest family and friends. The couple opted for a unique Friday afternoon wedding, in hopes of capturing as much natural light as possible. Their success is evident in each photo from their unforgettable day. After a magical honeymoon in Cabo San Lucas, they’re savoring every moment of newlywed bliss.
