Kristen & Joey {Wedding Day}

Kristen… you are so sweet and pretty and fantastic.  Even though Joey likes to tell people how lucky you are, we all know HE is the lucky one!!  🙂  

And Joey… what can we say about you that you don’t already know?  I mean we all know you are a force to be reckoned with and a downright lady killer.  It’s a good thing that you are officially off the market, because I am certain beating off all the ladies was exhausting.  Now you can finally get some relief!!

After a super sweet first glance, Kristen & Joey braved the heat and had a quick outdoor photo session.  It was such a blessing that they went this route – stay tuned when we tell you why later…



So, back to what I was saying… thank GOODNESS these two opted for a first glance because OMG it was hot.  Like scorching, stupid hot, after the wedding.  30 seconds in the 500% humidity and you were soaked.  The wedding party was over it, and really – the heat caused some attention span issues.  Like here in this photo… “Oh look!  A flag!!”  Then a few recited the Pledge of Allegiance.  It was a either patriotism, or incoherent babbling from heat exhaustion.  The jury’s still out.

Any Collinsville IL resident knows the claim to fame of the area is the fact that the city is home to “The World’s Largest Ketchup Bottle”.  Kristen & Joey wanted to celebrate their heritage and get some photos with the landmark, but unfortunately, road construction made it impossible to get the shot.  The couples ONLY other request was alot of photos with Roger and I, so we had to oblige.  Here is one where the 3 of us were just casually walking down the street.

Kristen & Joey’s reception at the Regency in Shiloh IL was BREATHTAKING!!!  Every smallest detail was magical!

What’s the 4th of July weekend without some sparklers?  I’m pretty sure “The Pledge” was again recited, along with some of the “Star Spangled Banner” and chanting U.S.A.  This group is truly proud of their country – or like I’d said  – suffering from heat exhaustion.

Kristen & Joey – we looked forward to your wedding all year, and now look forward to watching your love grow throughout the years.  You two are such wonderful, fun people and we are SO glad to have gotten to know you and your families!
