Bill and Elizabeth are married

When I remember Elizabeth and Bill's wedding, two words come to mind:

Awesome.ness.

I shot Elizabeth and Bill's wedding late this fall, and they officially became the couple with the most photos from one day EVER! Elizabeth had factored in a ton of time for us to travel and get some great photos, which I LOVED. There was no way to narrow it down to just a few pics, so I apologize in advance for the overload of awesome.ness:

I was standing by the wedding coordinator when Bill and Elizabeth lit the candle and we both held our breath as the flame grew and grew.  And grew.

Elizabeth and Bill had a HUGE wedding party! Luckily, they were all good sports, despite the freezing temps and bone-chilling wind :).  Jon grabbed this shot as the party marched toward him.

Because their wedding was in November after daylight savings time, it got dark pretty quickly, which made our time for taking photos outdoors pretty short. BUT, because Elizabeth planned ahead, we structured the schedule to include time for night photos.  I'm so glad they did, because I LOVE the way they turned out!

Main street in downtown St. Charles has some great spots.

I think this is probably my favorite dancing photo ever

the heart of St. Charles Banquet Center has great windows overlooking the river and city lights.  Even more beautiful, though, is the interaction between Elizabeth and her dad.  Man, he sure does love her.

The dance floor was packed the entire night!  Jon did a great job of capturing all the excitement

I love the overload of awesomeness. I enjoy it much more than an underload. :/ Those night shots are amazing and I love that you guys got photos of yourselves in there. Haha. Amazing work!
