Eric and Becky are married!

Rain threatened to spill on the morning of Eric and Becky's wedding. I prayed that the weather would clear up all the way to Becky's aunt's house, where the girls were getting ready, and we were in luck! Eric and Becky's wedding day couldn't have been better! The couple, who hail from Boston, planned this wedding from quite a distance and everything came together just perfectly, even down to the last detail.

Becky's Wedding Day RocketDog's. Delicate, yet practical. Perfect.

Beautiful detailing on Becky's Maggie Sottero gown.

Love the look on these girls' faces. I can just imagine them picturing themselves one day all grown up and in a beautiful dress like Becky's.

The beautiful bride.

While I was with the girls, Carrie, my second shooter for this wedding, was with the guys.

Carried headed over to the park with Eric for a few quick photos before the rest of the party arrived. Since he's a KU alum, it was only fitting to photograph him donning his jayhawk hat.

And this is my favorite part of the day! For couples who don't have a lot of time between ceremony and reception, I HIGHLY recommend doing the photos before the wedding. Eric and Becky wanted to make sure they had plenty of time and weren't rushed during their photos, so they planned to meet before the ceremony at Laumeier Sculpture Park. Carrie and I coordinated the meeting time and made sure Eric's back was turned as Becky walked up behind him. The air was thick with excitement as they prepared to see each other. I shot form this angle..

And Carrie shot from this angle.

I like to give my couples a few moments to themselves after they see each other for the first time, so I stay in the background and shoot with a long lens.

And then it was time for the real fun to begin! Since Becky had built so much time into the schedule for photos (which I dig!), I was able to spend some relaxed time with them before the rest of the wedding party arrived.

If you couldn't tell, lately I've been digging the vintage look. I think Eric and Becky look great in these vintage photos.

Not your typical bridal shot... but that's probably why it's my favorite.

Married!

Eric and Becky had me do an engagement guestbook album for them and it was big hit! The guests loved looking through all the photos and had the opportunity to write in a person note (or two!) in the book.

Congrats, Eric and Becky! Your wedding was wonderful and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to work with you! Enjoy Paris!

Wow, Lisa! I love this shoot. I'm digging the vintage look as well!

And LOST was crazy last week, right? Wow. That was pretty much the best episode ever.

Awesome pics! Love, love, love the picture of them kissing under the veil. You're the greatest! :)

Love the one with the veil all strategically drawn about the couple. I'm carefully ignoring all your comments... I see the word "Lost" mentioned here and I had accidentally deleted Part 1 of the season finale. Thank the Lord for the invention of internet tv!

I have to say my fav is the one of them in the midst of the trees. What a great, intimate looking moment. And what a cool locale - Laumier!
