5 Year Wedding Anniversary

Happy 5 year anniversary to my amazing husband Tim Cipolla! Over the past 5 years we've traveled the world together, added another fur baby to the family, moved across country, and just dealt with whatever life threw at us. We may not see each other every day and our marriage/life may not be a "traditional 9-5" but we are still going strong. Out of the 12 years we've been together, I'd say these past 5 have been pretty dang awesome. You are my best friend and I'm so lucky to have you as my husband.

"Sneak Peek" Kelly and Andrew MARRIED | The Pour Vineyard in Red Bud, IL. | St. Louis MO Wedding Photographer

Happy Monday!  I recently photographed Kelly and Andrew's gorgeous wedding at The Pour Vineyard in Red Bud, IL and just HAD to share a few from their fabulous day.  I absolutely ADORE outdoor weddings, especially when couples choose to have their wedding ceremony smack dab in the middle of a vineyard.  LOOOOOVE it!  Enjoy!

If you are planning a vineyard/winery wedding, make sure to check out The Pour Vineyard in Red Bud, IL.  It's absolutely gorgeous and they do a wonderful job!

Lori and Rob MARRIED - LeClair Room in Edwardsville IL, Edwardsville, IL Wedding Photographer

TAH DAH!  Aren't they one good looking couple?!?!?!  Lori and Rob's St. Louis wedding day was full of gorgeous colorful florals, tons of family and friends, and can we get back to how good looking they are?!?!?  Seriously, Barbie and Ken wedding day barbie ;)  LOTS of gorgeous details and of course a ton of photographs to show of their fabulous day!  Enjoy!

Lori and Rob were married at the stunning St. Stanislaus Kostka Church in St. Louis, MO.

Such a gorgeous church!

We captured their Bridal Party Portraits at the lovely Lafayette Square Park in St. Louis, MO.  The weather forecast was 80% chance of rain that day and I was kind of stressing.....but it was seriously sunshine and blue skies all afternoon.  Oh St. Louis weather.... :)

Loved how the groomsmen wore gray suits and Rob wore navy, oh so stylish!

And the gorgeous navy and lace bridesmaid dresses accented by vibrant bouquets!  LOVED!

And don't even get me started on Lori and her wedding gown!  It was so chic and modern, so Lori!

Their lovely wedding reception was held at the Leclair Room in Edwardsville, IL.  The LeClair Room ALWAYS does such a great job!  Lori and Rob's wedding reception was decorated with hints of navy, orange, and gold.  They also had an ADORABLE bird theme that was featured throughout their decor.  SO cute!

Also, THANK YOU for providing me with a gluten free meal.  That was seriously SO thoughtful and I can't thank you enough! :)

Thanks again Lori and Rob! 

Special thanks to the fabulous Mary Kim Loeffler of MK Loeffler Photography for second shooting and for bringing umbrellas we never had to use!!! ;)
