How often does one get to photograph the wedding of high school sweethearts?! I was thinking about the answer to that question and based on my 13 years and 300 plus weddings, I would go with something in the 2-3% range. Making these two something close to a statistical anomaly! And they are just perfect together. Adam ADORES Elyse. He couldn’t take his eyes off of her all day long. And Elyse lights up when Adam is around. They are totally two peas in a pod. Surprisingly the St. Louis weather cooperated Easter weekend and they had a perfect day for a wedding on the terrace at the Bissinger’s Carmel Room. A sunny day to compliment a bright and cheery yellow and gray color scheme! The girls got ready at Elyse’s parents house and I rounded up a knife and a lemon for a fun ring shot. That’s a first!
Ans then Elyse’s mom’s shiny purse made for a beautiful ring shot!
Also a first…bridal party onesies!
So pretty Elyse.
And your laugh is contagious.
So dad wasn’t supposed to pop out but he did and sent everyone into tears. I mean every female in the room was all weepy. It was sweet and hilarious all at once.
The yin to Elyse’s yang. Adam’s smile may be just as contagious as his bride’s!
First look at their old high school…I couldn’t imagine a more fitting place.
Love this one.
Off to soak in some spring air!
So fluffy happy and bright.
Proof that boys will be boys…even if you put them in tuxedos. ;)
I never tire of the fun socks. Fun socks for life!
And off to The Carmel Room to get ready for the ceremony!
Elyse gave the parents these sweet embroidered handkerchiefs that made everyone all weepy again. No complaints here!
It is time…
Smiles and tears.
Making it official.
A few quick shots of the pretty room all set up awaiting enjoyment.
Cake cuttings are rarely cute. This one however…
I’m personally proud of Elyse’s mom for wobbling. ;)
Congratulations you two! I hope you had fun reliving this awesome day! With love, Liz
