I still have an overwhelming sense that this year of weddings has just barely started, yet somehow I already feel like I’ve seen all kinds of awesomeness! All kinds of smiles, lots of laughs and plenty of love. All of my favorite things of the non-shiny variety! Mally and Mike were married just before the tulips finished blooming this spring. It’s almost as if Mally called in a favor to mother nature so that the world would match her and Mike’s wedding colors. How fun is that?! Just wait…you’ll see what I mean. I figured this Irish couple needed a little green in their photos so I enlisted the help of a house plant. ;)
Pretty Mally working on finishing touches!
Pretty gold monogrammed programs with hand tied satin ribbon.
It’s obvious where Mally gets her smile and laugh from.
The lovely ladies!
Meeting up with Mike at the church for a few pre-wedding photos.
Can’t you just tell how fun these two are already?
Crouching tiger hidden Liz photo (me playing in the bushes).
Pretty peony bouquet from the always amazing Barb at Bloomin’ Buckets!
Here comes the bride and her smiley pops!
St. Josephs Catholic Church in Clayton.
Off to take some fun photos around town!
Mike didn’t really get the concept of “nuzzling.” Which turned into Mally trying to force him to nuzzle. Which in turn made us all break down in laughter as an exasperated Mike exclaimed that he had no idea how to nuzzle. Which still makes me crack up. I may make him a t-shirt that says just that.
This is Mike’s best nuzzle of the day! :)
Off to Norwood Hills Country Club for a few more portraits and a little cocktail time. See what I mean about the matching colors?!
Love this one.
Cue the pretty reception decor!
Mmmmm…I haven’t eaten all day and this is making my mouth water. Crap.
A little razzing involved in the toasting.
Such a classic elegant room.
I’m not sure exactly what this inside joke is, but I’m pretty sure they are going to enjoy this photo.
Congratulations you two! Perfect Day! With love, Liz
