What a beautiful day with a wonderful couple . . . and so many friends and family members! I have known Emma for a few years, and I was beyond thrilled that she asked me to fill the role of wedding photographer for her! It was a dream of a day:  relaxed, elegant, and absolutely teeming with love!

We began at the incomparable Moonrise Hotel, where Emma slipped into her dress and made last preparations for the day that awaited her.

 

 

As soon as she was ready, we left for University City's City Hall, where her and Jiles saw each other for the first time!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 After that, the aptly named Jewel Box was the next destination, where the ceremony took place.

 

 

 

 Easily one of my favorite captures of a groom watching his bride come down the aisle :)

 

 

 

 

 

 Husband and wife!

 I love the excitement of knowing it is official!

 

 

 The toasts were heart-warming and brought many tears and smiles!

 

 One of my favorite parts of this day was the first dance.

 

 

 What a proud father!

 

 

 

 

We snuck outside to grab a few more shots during the last, beautiful moments of light. 

 

 

 

At this point, I also learned that Jiles has modelling experience! Work it! ;) 

 The night finished out with some awesome dancing! It was such a great group of guests, and I had to really watch my step on this dance floor!

 

 

 Thank you so much, Emma and Jiles, for allowing me to be a part of your day!! To say I was honored would be such an understatement! I wish you two the happiest of lives together! Congratulations!!
