Morgan & Bill {married}

Morgan and Bill’s day was one Roger and I looked forward to.  With a long engagement, the two had booked us far in advance so we had plenty of time to establish more than just a client/photographer relationship.  Even though the two live in Chicago (see their GORGEOUS Chicago engagement session) through Facebook and phones we were able to create a friendship that will last long after their beautiful wedding day.  And beautiful it was!!
The wedding took place at the GORGEOUS Chandler Hill Winery in Defiance MO.  We know from experience that Chandler Hill Winery Weddings have a gorgeous setting.  This time of year that can offer some challenges for a wedding day because everyone wants to be taking in the views along with you!!  Another challenge that was presented was the fact that off in the distance when we arrived we could see storm clouds moving in.  But when you have a couple that doesn’t let the little things get to them and are there for all the right reasons – nothing else in the universe matters.  That type of love is inspiring, and that day – when Morgan and Bill had their first glance until it was time to go – you could feel the love in the air.  And that is the best conditions for a great wedding!!!  Enjoy Morgan and Bill’s wedding day!!!
One of my first time photographing “the groom’s shoes”.  Not quite as thrilling as a jaw dropping set of heels, but pretty fun nonetheless.  Can you even handle these two cuties?  Bill – you looked so handsome on your wedding day, and Morgan – you are a knock out.  So beautiful!!These two had such a sweet first look.  Even though we had to do it inside because of the rain, it ended up being perfect.
The showers were intermittent, so we were able to get out into the vineyards for awhile and get some images of the two lovers before it started back up again.UGH – it doesn’t get much sweeter!!Meow. (that’s for you Morgan)Our favorite number of bridesmaids + they are all sweet AND gorgeous.  Throw in some gorgeous bouquets by Becky Huffman aka Poppies Design Studio – and you’ve got the recipe for perfection!!CUTIEBefore the ceremony it was touch and go wether or not the ceremony would be outside as planned.  But the radar showed that there was enough time for them to say their I dos and stay dry so they went for it.  Even though the skies weren’t sunny, everything was perfect.One of my favorite parts of the day – Morgan and Bill wrote their own vows.  I LOVE it when a couple writes their own vows and makes their own promises.  Makes me cry every time!!Loved this perfect moment right after the ceremony with the bridesmaids.  A intimate number of bridesmaids makes for such a bonding experience and keeps it simple so you can really take the experience in.  Yay girls!!!Luckily Chandler Hill has these cool umbrella things (technically speaking of corse) that make it possible to have your dance floor still outside even though it’s raining.  BOOM.  Love this capture by Roger.And then… this happened…

Morgan and Bill – you two are thoughtful, caring, amazing people and two people who are perfectly suited to grow old together.  Getting to know you over the past year + has created a friendship I know we will hold onto for life.  We love you, your love, and your passion for life and we look forward to watching that grow and evolve for all your years to come.  Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives for this important day and for your trust and support.  You will always have ours in return!!
