Kelly + Ethan {wedding story}

Kelly and Ethan’s wedding day took place on a Sunday morning in St.Louis MO surrounded with family and friends from all over the U.S. who had come together to celebrate this spectacular day.  There is something pretty delightful about a morning wedding.  Through all our years photographing, we’ve only seen a few – but every one of them have been special.  The day is fresh, the excitement is palpable, and everything feels more cozy (for lack of a better word – I mean this day took place in June in the midwest – ain’t nothin “cozy” feeling about humidity and sweat).  Now I know what you are thinking… “what about the party?”.  Oh my friends, Kelly and Ethan’s friends didn’t come to St.Louis to go to a wedding and then take a nap!  No sir.  They came to throw down!!  These people partied more before noon than we’ve seen at some receptions at 10pm!  Just because it was a Sunday morning didn’t mean that this was going to be anything less than a fantastic Jewish ceremony and reception.  But let’s stop talking about it and show you the proof!  🙂  Enjoy Kelly and Ethan’s wedding day!

So sweet.tensixteen112tensixteen113tensixteen114tensixteen115tensixteen116tensixteen117tensixteen118These two also have a VERY nice intimate pause before a kiss. One that is sincere and happy vs creepy romance novel. It’s my favorite things to see in a couple!tensixteen119tensixteen120tensixteen121tensixteen122tensixteen123Signing the ketubah.

Lifting people up in chairs, running in circles, dancing, clapping… I have never seen such a packed dance floor or such a celebration.  Unforgettable!
