It was the first weekend of July.  Remnants of  fun 4th of July celebrations were still lingering in the small town of Nevada, MO.  Christina’s hometown.  It was always going to be there in her hometown, in the Catholic church she grew up  in, surrounded by the whole town.  She loves her small town, and wanted to continue the tradition 4 of her 5 siblings started.  I was prepared for the crowd, for the huge family pics, and even the abundant joy, but I’ve known Christina for about 5 years now, and while she’s always happy, I’ve never  seen her as happy as she was on this special day.  I don’t know that I’ve ever photographed a bride and groom so glowing, so happy, so in love!

Oh and the bridesmaids were awesome too!  Love those girls!

I guess you could say Jon is in training.  He took all the photography classes in college with me, but he forgot some of the technical stuff.  It’s starting to come back, but he’s always had an awesome eye, so I love that I can count on him.  He shot the picture on the left.  He’s the best assistant ever!

Love the light on the right picture, the way it’s wrapping around behind them.  Oh and the expression is great too, but I didn’t have anything to do with that.  They were  goo goo ga ga over each other all day.

Hello adorable 1 and 2.

I love the love!

Seriously, the picture on the left is how they looked All. Day. Long!

After the wedding we hopped on a trolley and drove around to do pics before the reception.  Did I mention it was hot?

Christina you are SO GORGEOUS!!!!

I had the hardest time picking pictures to share.  There were about 100 more because really how do I show you just how in love this couple really is?  Christina and Matt I hope you wake up feeling like you did on your wedding day forever!
