Washington, Missouri, is easily one of the most scenic outdoor spots in the greater St. Louis area. Add a winery on a bluff overlooking the mighty Missouri, a sunset wedding ceremony and a beautiful fall day and, well, you have something really special. Check out a few of my favorites from Kelsey and Andrew's October wedding:
Kelsey planned a day filled with antique-y details.
Kelsey and her father were making their way down a very long aisle, which gave me lots of time to capture everyone's reactions.
Really like this shot from second shooter Josh.
I need this guest to come along to all my weddings to get the guys to crack a smile. I didn't realize this happened until I went to edit the photos.
The whole gang.
This entrance shot really captures their personalities. Andrew is cerebral and quiet, while Kelsey is his energetic yang.
Laugh. Out. Loud. Every. Single. Time.
Each of Andrew's brothers took a turn dancing with their mother.
So, this one is going to need some explaining. Kelsey, along with a number of her bridesmaids, are life-long dancers and dance instructors. They choreographed a guys-versus-girls wedding party dance to kick off the reception that puts all other wedding party dances to shame. These photos are funny but they don't capture how awesome this was. I saw lots of people shooting video on their phones so hopefully one of those makes it onto YouTube.
Andrew and the guys opened with this human motorcycle. You'll have to make the sound effects in your head.
Andrew and his brothers surprised Kelsey with this serenade. They're really getting into it here. What an awesome day. Congratulations, Kelsey + Andrew!
