Wow. This was a day for the books. Essentially, when your little sister gets married, that will be an extraordinary day no matter what. But, let us say, this wedding went off without a hitch! Literally, their hashtag was #BertiHitchUp. So, let’s pull out those hashtags and take a walk down memory lane from October 1, 2016.
If we had to describe this wedding in three words… (don’t make us, it would be too difficult!) Ok, ok, three words: stunning, intimate & family. Those three words stick out boldly to both of our BGI team photographers from the day! Now, we highly recommend you get the tissues out for this one. We have teared up probably ten times already and the page isn’t even half full.
Jessica Berti (maiden name Heinle) is pretty much labeled as a tom boy by our records, but for her wedding day, she was anything but. She had help from the Mommas on both sides, with all things wedding prep, but you can tell that she put in her own personal touches and flare as well. The wedding party was a wild, fun, entertaining bunch and the groomsman’s shirts matched that exact vibe. Every thread of the wedding had an intimate feel, down to the walk down the aisle. Jessica was brought in by a horse-drawn carriage and escorted, not only by just her Daddy, but also by her very own kiddo, Kapone. Both of her children were actually in every aspect of the wedding and neither Jess, nor Austin would have wanted it any other way.
From the emotional first looks with Dad, Mom, sisters & wedding party, then finally the groom, tears were flowing as Jessica stunned in her flowy, flower-child inspired dress. Her hair was done by her Momma and it couldn’t have gotten any more perfect than that. Austin wore khaki suspenders, etched with the initials DAS to remember a very special friend that could not be there that day. Everything was intimate, timeless and beautiful.
The wedding took place on a family farm and reception followed in the sweetest way. Everyone danced under the most gorgeous setting of an outdoor tent. Family played such a strong role as you can probably tell by now in the whole day. To end off the night in the most remarkable way, Jess and her dad danced their dance as both of her sisters sang, adding such a personal, charming touch to this already picture-perfect wedding.
Tiffany, from BGI quoted, “It was so awesome to be able to stand back and watch your friend get married but also be able to capture it.” Austin and Jess, thank you so much for letting us be a part of your wonderful day.
