Last weekend I had the amazing opportunity to photograph a wedding so sweet it even included a candy bar! As cheesy as that sounds it’s true. Claire and Scott’s love for one another simply brings a smile to your face. Between Claire’s larger than life personality and Scott’s sweet side, these two make one perfect couple and I couldn’t have planned a more suited wedding myself!
Scott’s day began at Stoney Creek Inn, as the boys were off getting ready the girls were enjoying their time at the Kimball Ballroom snacking on Panera and working on those finishing touches to their makeup! These two opted out of seeing each other before that important walk down the aisle, just to make that moment more of a surprise! So as the ceremony began Claire and Scott included their friends and family as much as possible. One of my favorite moments during the ceremony had to be when their rings were passed around so blessings could be said over them. During this time a few of their close friends and relatives joined them on the stage for acoustic music, piano solos, and beautiful readings for the day!
The ceremony was so beautiful and fit their personalities 100%! Afterwards we strolled off into Downtown Columbia and Peace Park for a few portraits with their wedding party. Along with these images we captured a few lovely moments between Claire and Scott themselves and even managed to avoid the rain that afternoon! The rest of the evening was quite a celebration and I’m sure everyone enjoyed their night to the fullest!
Congratulations Scott and Claire, it was an absolute pleasure capturing your sweet moments this past weekend!
