Emily + Andy: Married!

Hurray! I'm finally posting my first wedding of 2011! This one started out big with two beautiful venues and an awesome couple :) We had a pretty great day for February...it was overcast and a bit chilly...but Emily was a trooper and up for whatever! I almost broke my leg at one point during the day...but I'll tell you about that a little later...

We started the day off in the house where Emily grew up! I loved that we could use her old bedroom as the backdrop for her gown! Her makeup is being done here by Lisa Lipsitz (Looks by Lisa)...she did a fab job making the girls look beautiful!
Emily's bouquet was just so vibrant...and created by the super-awesome Tina Barrera (The Special Event Florist).

How many bridesmaids does it take to pin on a veil? :)

I just love how the little flower girl is looking up to the older one. So cute!

St. Francis Xavier Church at SLU is such a pretty church...

Finally got to pull out my fisheye for the "bridal party on the arch steps" shot :)

Okay...so who's this guy, you might be wondering. Unfortunately I never caught his name...but this random gentleman decided to serenade our bridal party for the entire time we were at this picture location...and no offense...but he was a bit off-key...

Now picture him still singing, while I'm up on this ledge trying to direct my bridal party. I'm not the loudest nor the most comfortable barking orders at people, so I was just doing my best to try and yell over him. I was so distracted that I took a few steps too many to the left, and fell off the ledge.

Luckily, no one caught my snafu on camera...but the bridal party probably got a good laugh out of it. Thank goodness I didn't sprain/break anything. Later at the reception a random guest came up to ask me about my earlier "brush with death". News travels fast at a wedding reception.

But look at the cool bridal party shot I got out of it!

I think this is my fave.

The Renaissance Grand Crystal Ballroom is such an elegant place to have your reception.

Here are a few more details from the day...

Thanks so much to my 2nd shooter, Von DeVore, who came through in an emergency!

Look for a slideshow featuring more beautiful images from this wedding later this week!
