Wow, this is kind of a long blog post! Meredith and I have a hard time narrowing things down sometimes when there are too many cute things (this is a good problem to have, by the way!) Holly and Brian have a fun group of family and friends that kept us laughing and smiling all day…
okay, so these are Holly & Brian’s rings…. (nice, eh?!) The one down below is different!
so this one is all the girls’ engagement rings in the family… I never really look at the side detail of rings, but I like it!
LOVE when this happens!
the gorgeous Holly!
and finally we see Brian…
yes, a ring will be going on that finger later today!!
fun first look… her face is priceless here! I think she *might* be excited to see her man. LOL
…looks like the feeling is mutual.
I love these few private portraits before we meet up with everyone else.
and we’re off!
lucky find on a yellow field for their day!
I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I L-O-V-E it when bride’s aren’t afraid to sit down in the gown! You only get to wear that sucker once, right?! Go for it!
one more quick stop on the way to the ceremony…
the nervous lip bite as Holly comes down the aisle is so cute! (sorry Brian, it is.)
The 9th Street Abbey in historic Soulard
bam, Mr & Mrs.
so you may be thinking, why is there a covered wagon… I was thinking the same thing… turns out it’s a family thing. You can’t see it in this photo, but the initials and dates of the weddings of all the family members are written on the top cloth…. if you want to know more about this bizarre thing, I invite you to ask the bride & groom!!
let the dancing begin!
We snuck out for a few night photos in the garden toward the end of the night. So pretty how the light hits the ivy!
Thanks for a day full of laughs and for being laid back and fun! with love, kate & mer
