Sarah and Matt's wedding

Sarah and Matt's wedding
Our Friday the 13th wedding started out at Mary's Hair Off the Square near Rookwood. Since Sarah and Matt had such a small ceremony with a grand total of 13 guests, I was able to photograph the wedding solo. I got to know Sarah and Matt at their engagement session and they are such a wonderful couple that I couldn't wait to photograph their big day!
Sarah's sister brough champagne to the salon and here she is about to uncork it. I love Sarah's face in this one!

Then we headed over to the Observatory for the ceremony ...
Here are a couple of shots of her dress ...
Ok ... at another wedding earlier this year, I had a photo of a dress and asked everyone if they could find the 'heart' in the dress. Apparently it was more obvious to ME than to anyone else. This one is A LOT more obvious ... so I'm hoping everyone can see this one :)

Sarah truly is a beautiful girl ...

and Matt provides some stiff competition for the men out there as well!
I just liked this shot of Sarah getting ready to enter the ceremony and the reflection of her sister in the door ...

The new Mr. and Mrs!!
Sarah was so happy immediately after the ceremony that she grabbed Matt and gave him a kiss ... I love it!
a portrait up in the dome ...
Seriously now ... adorable? I think so!
After the ceremony we all headed over to Slim's in Northside for the reception/dinner. Here is a shot of our table. Sarah was so excited that they were able to get the table by the front window.
The menu ... (and, by the way, the food was AMAZING! I loved it so much that I have made reservations for my husband and myself and two other couples to go next week!)
a few speeches ...
I love this shot of Sarah and Matt taking a drink after a toast ... and his dad's arm over top clinking glasses with another guest.
a portrait of Matt (he got new glasses so I had to incorporate them :) )
and Matt's ring ...
the girls playing with the veil ...
and did I mention that the competition was stiff at this wedding ... the paparazzi was in full swing!
See?
and a quick shot of them after cutting the cake - so animated!
Sarah and Matt, I had a blast! Thank you so much for allowing me to share your wonderful day! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
