It was an absolute joy to be with Erin and Chris on their wedding day this past August! They were married at the gorgeous Hermann Hill Winery in Hermann, MO! The portraits were insanely beautiful and everything went as planned. My day actually started with a lot of tears. Erin and Chris opted not to do a first look, but gave each other hand-written letters instead. What a special moment each of them had reading theirs. They both got to take a little breather from all of the wedding day preparations, and just enjoy a love note from their fiancé.
I can only imagine they discussed the beautiful life they have built together already, and their hopes and dreams for the future. Then, they probably included some of the reasons why they love each other so much. It was so tender to be able to witness this special part of their day.
In addition to Erin’s letter from Chris, her sweet bridesmaids made her a scrapbook full of memories. It was just the most thoughtful gift. It was so evident they put a lot of time and effort into the book.
Erin and Chris are a beautiful couple. I’ve been looking forward to capturing their day since their engagement session last fall when I realized just how photogenic they both are! Not only are they natural in front of the camera but they are incredibly genuine and kind. They were so excited to finally be married!
I loved being surrounded by their family and friends. One of my favorite moments of the day was when the DJ played baby shark and all the kids hopped on the dance floor! It was a joyful celebration of a wonderful couple!!
Erin and Chris, congratulations on this special new season of life!
