The two got ready in separate parts of the Hotel Manisses with the closest of friends and family.  The boys entertained each other, showing up in their finest attire, and the girls had a blast singing to music, and snuggling up to Sydney and Brandon's pup.

Walking into the rehearsal you just knew these two were ready for fun. It was all laughs and smiles as the two prepped for the day ahead.  At the Block Island Beach House the two enjoyed a casual dinner with their wedding guests before hitting the town to enjoy the nightlife.
The two also opted for their wedding portraits on a separate day, so we took some extra portraits of all their wedding guests the night of their rehearsal dinner to celebrate each of the guests.

Meeting Sydney and Brandon was like meeting old friends — which explained why they had so many.  The two are personable, joyful people that love to host and entertain.  One doesn't make sense without the other and the two complement each other perfectly.  In planning their wedding, they wanted to ensure having fun was consistently at the forefront of their planning.  The two put together the best weekend anyone could have asked for — bringing together friends from all over the country and state to celebrate their journey with.
