Handrew gets married

Hannah and Andrew both work at the same place. Early in their engagement, one of their coworkers affectionately nicknamed the two of them “Handrew,” and I kind of dig it.

Photographing Handrew’s wedding (see, it’s cool… I can’t stop saying it) was such a treat for so many reasons, not the least of which was the Ruby cupcake that made a special appearance after the ceremony (if you know what the Ruby is, you know why mentioning it is so blogworthy).  I also just happened to know several of their guests, which I happily got all paparazzi on while they were vying for cupcakes after the ceremony.  But even more than that, Hannah and Andrew share a faith that binds them together that’s even stronger than their affection for each other.  And I know that this day was not just a day for them.  It really was the start of something special.

Handrew, I dig your celebrity couple name.  You two are pretty precious and I loved sharing this beginning with you.


Lyle and Callie :: Married at Bellerive Country Club

Lyle and Callie are adorable.  Seriously and totally adorable.  And oh-so-in-love. It was such a pleasure to photograph this couple on such a tremendously meaningly day.  Everything about Lyle an Callie’s wedding is all kinds of beautiful, from the Christian Louboutins that Callie wore, to her stunning gown, and her hair and make up that was just beyond perfection. And I’m kind of obsessed with the flowers. Well, maybe a little more than kind of…



Beautiful blooms from Bloomin’ Buckets. And if you think these are gorgeous… just wait till you see the reception.

Callie and Lyle got a sneak peek of the beautiful room at Bellerive before their guests arrived, and I don’t think I need to say this, but they were completely thrilled with the work Michelle and her team from Absolutely In!
