ooooh kyle, seriously beautiful, 100% stylish and creative- the whole package! i KNOW you remember their engagement session– one of the most unique we’ve done and we love them for that. it has to be assumed that anyone who puts so much care and love into an engagement shoot will do the same for her wedding and kyle did not disappoint! so many amazing details about kyle’s wedding made me wish i had her designing my wedding! from chelsea’s perfect creations for invitations and hairpieces to the stunning bridesmaid dresses (woah, have i ever said that before!?) to her perfectly perched birdcage veil, everything about kyles wedding was not an inch short of absolutely lovely! i took more pictures at this wedding than i ever have before just to try to document all of the love kyle infused into her day- she’s not an easy one to keep up with but i had an awesome day doing my best. AND, oh yea, she had a photobooth! the girl does everything right, oh yes.

kyle’s hair and makeup was created by the immensely talented raney o’keefe, ladies, if you wanna look this good, you know who to call! :)

kyle & chris met at their reception site before the ceremony for a few portraits and a little down time to reabsorb what the day was all about. chris was so taken with his bride that he spun her around to get a better look- the bridal party was watching from a few yards away but their squeals over how sweet the moment was didn’t go unnoticed- it was just perfect!

kyle wanted to include these leaves she saved (details! i tell ya!) in a few of her portraits just as a reminder of the beautiful season for years to come. there was definitely an element of nature in so many of her details, i love how this image will fit together with her decor images from her reception!

we arrived back at the reception site just as the sky was deepening behind the city. it was so beautiful that after taking a few images exposed for them we decided to grab a flash and capture the environment! matt and i are both so happy with these portraits- some of our most favorite we’ve ever taken!

once we were inside for the reception we did out best to melt into the background and capture the guests and the details. the photobooth was up and running and our super amazing assistants were rockin it! we had such a blast at this reception and everything was just beautiful- here are just a few highlights!

lexi & adam are married!

oh, wow. where to begin with these guys…?

let’s start with when we met them- at a walk through of their venue with their coordinator. they were OVERFLOWING with energy, creativity, ideas, energy, excitement and energy…and that was just lexi. adam was more reserved, but still witty, confident and engaging. together they were a power couple- you know one when you see one- they define that.

on their wedding day i walked in to find lexi and her ladies more than ready to get the party started! everything had been organized and planned and scheduled to a T and nothing was left but to enjoy it all; that’s what they were doing. i grabbed a few pics of lexi before we headed outside to take a few with her best friends and they ended up being some of my favorite shots of the day. ladies & gentlemen, i present to you the rockstar of the hour:

the image above and the image below are taken in the exact same location- i guess i thought it would be interesting to shoot against and with this beautiful light. i just shot from one side and then the other- not sure which look i like best in the end- they are so different! but really, lexi is so stunning, i could have shot her anywhere and been in love with the results!

while i spent time with the ladies matt rounded up the gents and grabbed a few portraits behind the venue. i love how matt uses space in his images- he’s the best ;)

matt took some time before the guests arrived to grab images of all of lexi’s beautiful details. while he was shooting he noticed this guy just chillin and made one of his favorite shots of the day:

i love each and every person’s expression in this next image- a beautiful mixture of pride and happiness:

adam & lexi wrote their own vows and had us all cracking up with their honesty and unique promises. :) it was a really personal and relaxed ceremony with a few extra impromptu ‘first kisses’ and lots of laughter:

lexi comes across as a person with a vision- and putting her wedding together compleatly proved that little feeling we got when we met her! all of the details were so perfect that we decided to put together a detail board to better display her brilliance:

there is something about this next image of their entrance into their reception that really just represents adam & lexi’s personalities, i love it!

there were totally adorable glam-ed out cameras on all of the tables for the guests to fill up and i have never seen them so utilized! even the bride grabbed one for a few seconds! from what i saw, i think there will be LOTS of laughs when those pictures are all developed. ;)

toasts were really emotional- full of hard laughing and even a little hard crying. i guess when you’re as passionate as lexi & adam, you have passionate families and attract passionate friends. it was really sweet to witness:

lexi is a natural rockstar and as such, is always in need of a mic. even during slow songs…  i LOVE her!
