There was an air of reverence, and also an air of fun. The day was so highly anticipated, no one could help but be in suspense to see all the beauty unfold! The depth of commitment these two made to each other could not be denied. Their love for God and one another was evident, and this was clearly the beginning of something that will last a lifetime. Amid the seriousness, these two are some of the happiest, most fun souls anyone will ever meet! They express it to each other and their loved ones in their own cute way, a lifetime full of inside jokes and mutually understood glances. It was my absolute honor to be privy to this ever so important day!
One of my very favorite areas, New Town, is where the ceremony took place.
I love the beaming smiles on both the bride and groom as they put on the finishing touches!
At last, they became husband and wife!!
We snuck off to Ted Drewes, where bridal parties get free custard, to take advantage and have fun!
Then Forest Park provided a stunning backdrop for more photos with this wonderful group.
I love Marilee's undeniable beauty and infectious happiness!!
Her beauty radiates even more next to Nick's side.
I was in love with the details at the All Occasions Banquet Center reception! That starlight ceiling . . . the rich purples and blues . . . and all the twinkling lights.
This is seriously the perfect way to feed each other cake!
They commemorated the whole day through the first dance together as husband and wife.
You could just feel the joy and pride in the room during the dances with their beloved parents.
After that, the party really began!
The night continued with so much celebration, all underneath the starlit ceiling.
Marilee and Nick, congratulations!! My fantastic second shooter, Cash, and I were so honored to be a part of this celebration! You two are only at the beginning of so many wonderful years together. Thank you for allowing us to help you remember this day forever!!
