They say that opposites attract, but after watching so many couples together, I have come to the conclusion that there are just as many couples who work because they have so many similarities. Justin and Brenna have alot in common, most notably that they are both very much down to earth and are total fitness fanatics. Brenna is a personal trainer and has always been a sporty girl, Justin has always been a sporty guy and has run three comrades marathons. They are both committed to a healthy lifestyle and keeping fit, but they are also deeply committed to their families and friends. I was particularly struck by just how much they adored their nieces and nephews. There are no airs and graces about these two and so it makes sense that their wedding would follow along a similar vain.
Brenna got ready in her family home where she grew up, they got married in a church just down the road and went on to celebrate at Talloula, which is in Bothas Hill not far from their home. They weren’t into enormous floral arrangements and loads of pretty posed pics. They wanted their day to be about the two of them celebrating their love and vows to each other with their closest people. So far as the photography goes it was really important for them to have their day captured as it unfolded, and I think my favorite pics are of the kiddies doing their thing!
Thanks so much Brenna and Justin for being so easy to work with, we so enjoyed you and your families, and Liz is still talking about stealing Drew! Good thing he is back in Canada! Thanks for picking me.
