Sibling Photo Shoot
Florida natives and sisters, Anna and Betsy Boyd, share more than childhood memories, they also share wedding planning memories. The two sisters each had their special day only a year apart. What makes their story so special, is how both sisters not only helped each other plan their wedding day but create memories along the way.
Younger sister, Anna, was the first of the sisters to get engaged. Planning began with Brandee Gaar, owner of Blush by Brandee Gaar. Wedding planner and designer, Brandee helped Anna create her dream day at Reunion Resort in Orlando. Brandee Gaar is known for her dream weddings. Her creativity paired with each bride’s theme makes each wedding different and one of a kind. With the help of Brandee, Anna booked the best Florida wedding vendors for her and fiance, Houston’s special day. Some of her vendors included photographer, Kristen Weaver, videographer, Jeffrey Stoner, and LeJeune Artistry for hair and makeup. Once planning began and wedding vendors were booked, it was time for Anna to find the perfect gown. Anna, her sister, and her mom shopped at Solutions Bridal in June of 2013. Anna said ‘yes’ to a silk organza and lace applique wedding gown by American bridal designer, Marisa Bridal. Anna added a Swarovski beaded sash, lace straps, and accessories by Erin Cole. 8 months after finding the perfect wedding gown, Anna and her husband, Houston, exchanged vows at Reunion Resort in Orlando.
Only a year later, older sister, Betsy and her now husband, Michael, got engaged. More memories were about to begin again. Wedding planning created so many fun memories for the sisters and their mom. Following in her sister’s footsteps, Betsy also decided to book wedding planner, Brandee Gaar to plan the special day. Once Brandee was booked for the event, Betsy new she wanted to use the wedding vendors her sister used. Anna had such an amazing experience with her vendors, Betsy couldn’t pass up the memories with Kristen, LeJeune, and Jeffrey, so she decided to book them for her wedding as well. One vendor Betsy couldn’t wait to meet with was us. When it was time to shop for the gown, just like her sister, Betsy also shopped with us at Solutions Bridal. Classy like her mom and sister, Betsy chose a fit and flare organza, tulle, and applique guipure lace gown by Canadian designer, Ines Di Santo. Betsy paired her wedding gown with Swarovski earrings by Maria Elena.
Because the sisters planned their wedding only a year apart and they used the same wedding vendors, the sisters shared tips, ideas, and experiences. What were admirable most about the sisters were the memories and tips they shared with each other. When it comes to planning, sisters may be jealous, however, these sisters were nothing but supportive and caring about each other and their individual wedding planning experiences.
To celebrate the sister’s memories and relationship, the Boyd sisters, and their wedding vendors including Tali with Solutions Bridal, Jeffrey Stoner, Kristen Weaver, and Patricia with LeJeune Artisty created a photoshoot to always remember how special your relationship with your siblings are.
