Married: Brooke & Matt

Venue: Evergreen Events

Cake: Annie O's Custom Creations
Styling: CaraSue Hall

It's the middle of July, we're heading out the door for our wedding in Paola, KS, and it's 76 degrees out with no humidity. You can't ask for a better day to get married than what Mother Nature delivered...but that's not what's important. What is important is that Brooke & Matt shared with us how much they love each other, and how awesome their family & friends are. We witnessed so many tears throughout the day. We also saw matching cards addressed, "for the love of my life" (not planned), a tommy gun tequila bottle, some classic cars, and some wild dancing on the dance floor :)

Matt was all smiles, all day.

and so was Brooke!

I love all the smiles on the bridesmaids' faces in this image...

and the tears in moms eyes :)

Portrait time!

Don't they both have such wonderful smiles?

Brooke's pretty pink shoes!

The Bridesmaids (in some really awesome light)

The Groomsmen (in some really awesome light)

Brooke's veil (in some really awesome light)

Matt & Brooke (in shades & in some really awesome light)

Father/Daughter moments always move me.

Oh, and they got married....

and they're excited!

There was a car show outside in the square. So after the ceremony we walked around and shot some more portraits with some of the cars. This was Matt's favorite car.

This might be my favorite shot of the day.

First dance action. Yes, I stepped outside during the first dance. Oh, if you could have seen the looks on some of the guests' faces. Anyway, I like the results :)

Now it's time to PAR-TAY!

This dude had some MOVES!

So did this dude.

The tommy gun vodka. It was a first for me.

I only had a few seconds to snap a shot of them in the backseat. I like how this one turned out.

And....they're off! Congrats you safe in Mexico.
