Champagne Bridal Brunch by Braedon Photography
That’s when I realized what a true friend was. Someone who would always love you — the imperfect you, the confused you, the wrong you — because that is what people are supposed to do.

Friends bring a special kind of happiness into our lives. One that fills the spaces that can be left by life's unexpected journey. Friendship is one of those treasures that we hold dear to our hearts and those that are blessed enough to have them. When we take that momentous step in our lives to get married it is our friends who become the sole keepers of our biggest wedding dreams. Today the amazing group of women from GATHER events are inspiring us with this beautiful Champagne Bridal Brunch that even your best friend would love!

From the designers at GATHER Events: "There's no better way to start a fun wedding weekend than with a champagne brunch - especially if you're having a destination wedding. It's a great chance to get to spend QT with your closest family and friends. Plan thoughtful events surrounding your wedding that will highlight your chosen location and make your guests feel right at home. 

We captured the elements of the Pacific Northwest using cool moody blues and greens offset by warm toned metals and organic textures for a winter worthy tablescape. We drew our first inspiration from the indigo fabrics of the Pacific, Japanese shibori and Hmong batik, then melded those deep blues of the runner and dip dyed menus with wood elements to create an inviting contrast. It wouldn't be a brunch without a bit of glitz, which we brought in through the brushed gold flatware and stemware. The lush wild floral (including foraged northwest native plants) was nestled among the vintage colored glassware and brass candlesticks for an eclectic organic chic table top that was all too apropos for a beautiful pre-wedding brunch!

Meet the Photographer.jpg
I capture the candid moments, the details, the joy and the love of a wedding day and would love to tell your story. We at Braedon Weddings are known for making our work personal to each couple. We believe relationship and connection with the people we’re shooting, comes across in the camera and our team is sought after for our ability to draw authenticity out of our subjects. Chemistry is important. You want to trust and like your photographer and that chemistry allows for us to draw things out of you that wouldn’t happen if your photographer was someone you didn’t connect with.
