Laura + Gary

Laura & Gary were married on a gorgeous November day [sheesh I'm behind on blogging!] I met Laura at her parents' house where she got ready for her big day:

I ALWAYS like when a bride wears shoes that aren't white or ivory - so fun!

very cool programs by the amazingly talented M. Haley Design that wheel spins to show all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen - so cool!

Dad was floored by how beautiful she looked :)

they opted for a first look - which in November, after Daylight Savings Time ends - is always a good idea! We had plenty of time in gorgeous light to get portraits taken

such gorgeous eyes :)

I love this one - the flower in her hair is beautiful!

I became quickly obsessed with this red berry tree on the church grounds - so pretty!

I love these :)

her flowers were amazing! they were done by Zu Zu's Petals - perfection :)

Laura's nieces were adorable! so photogenic :)

Gary's nephew, on the other hand, had nothing to do with me.

he couldn't even look at me :)

Yay! Mr & Mrs Gilbert!

we went on a long bus ride to downtown St. Charles for some fun pics while the light quickly disappeared. . .

so one of the groomsmen suggested the 'flying v' and I lined them up in a v. then a few of them started playing air guitar, so they all did. I imagine the air guitars were of the 'flying v' variety :)

love it! Laura can rock a 'serious' face :)

once the light completely disappeared we headed down onto Main St. for some fun pics of them:
thank you, 5D Mark II!

pretty :)

Their reception was held at the Ameristar - such a rockin' place for a reception! Check it!

their cake topper was Laura's Mom & Dad's - I love passed-down details! Oh - and the cupcakes were AMAZING! I had the chocolate, and it had cream cheese icing. *swoon!* Laura - where the heck did you get those?!

The End!

Beautiful wedding. Those programs are very unique! I like it!

I know the kind of berry tree you are talking about a few years ago, I was obsessed with photographing one after an ice storm!
