Madrona Manor Wedding in Healdsburg, CA :: Brandon + Donnie :: with Kristen
After over four years of dating, Brandon + Donnie are MARRIED!! There is so much to love about this wedding – from their nature-adorned wedding bands to the comic book themed decor – and Kristen captured it all with the usual whimsy & charm. 😉 And… we get to share their highlight VIDEO!
We caught up with Brandon & Donnie to hear more about their best day ever!
“Our wedding day was a blast. Everything came together perfectly and we had so much fun eating, drinking, dancing, and socializing with close friends and family. The moment we were face to face saying the vows we had written to each other […] In that moment our friends and families were able to witness us express just how much Donnie and I care and love each other. In that moment we were two people in love and that was all that mattered.”
Did you include any heirlooms or special items in your wedding day? What made you decide to include it/them?
“Our wedding rings, the comic book themed items, and the image of Batwoman holding the Flag. We chose our wedding rings to have representations of things within nature that are grounding for ourselves. For me, I find comfort and peace being around trees and for Donnie, he finds comfort and peace in the water. The image of Batwoman holding the flag was created by Rafael Albuquerque for a comic book anthology called “Love is Love” to support the survivors and honor those killed at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando Florida on June 12th 2016 and all of the proceeds from the book were donated.”
What did it feel like to finally be married?
“Surreal at first but ultimately comforting. It is a comforting thought knowing that there will always be this other person that is committed to me and loves in the same way that I am committed to them and in love them.”
What did you love most about your photographer?
“Oh gosh, it’s so hard to pick one thing. Can we say everything? Kristen was fun and quirky and her personality fit right in with us. She did such a fantastic job that the Wedding Venue Coordinator wanted to add her to their list of wedding photographers.”
