Trisha & Ryan {married}

You could tell by watching her get ready she was excited.  Maybe anxious.  The butterflies were getting the best of her and she was ready to get the day started.  Hustling to make it all come together, he worried about how to fold pocket squares and how to get his tie perfect.  You could feel the anticipation growing.  Separated by only a few yards, Trisha and Ryan both were ready to start their day.  When she walked up to see him, he turned to her and every ounce of stress melted away.  You could see the exhale, the weight lifted from their shoulders, and the beginning of something fantastic.  Enjoy Trisha & Ryan’s wedding day!!

We looked forward to Trisha and Ryan’s wedding day since the very day they contacted.  We had the joy of photographing Trisha’s sister Danielle’s wedding a couple years prior, so we knew the day would include great families accompanied by the beautiful setting of Hermann Missouri at the Hermann Hill Chapel.  If you have never experienced the beautiful wine country of Hermann MO, or haven’t been to Hermann Hill to take in the breathtaking views you are truly missing out!!  It is such a marvelous area to relax and unwind while sipping wine and taking in the sights.  But even better – to have a wedding there!!  It was just as perfect as we imagined.

Trisha’s sister Danielle and her wonderful husband Josh had one of our most favorite wedding days, and continue to be great friends.  The only thing more beautiful than the two of them on their wedding day, is the two of them with this sweet little girl in their arms.  It doesn’t get any cuter!!!

Trisha’s wedding dress was jaw dropping on a hanger.  I was seriously in awe!And even better on!!  How beautiful are these two!?!work it out We could NOT get over the sky that day!!  Perfect mix of blue skies and white puffy clouds!!
The great thing about getting married in wine country – you start celebrating with wine and champagne right away!!We headed to the charming downtown area of Hermann for a few photos.  This area has endless opportunities for photos and fun!!
Go ahead and ask Trisha if having a first glance takes away from that moment you walk down the aisle.  The tears began here, and did not stop the entire ceremony.
Again – wedding in wine country means we pop champagne at the end of the ceremony.  I think I have found heaven.  
I walked outside during the reception and noticed that the clouds had made a heart in the sky.  Knowing that would change in a matter of seconds I sprinted inside, found the bride and groom, out of breath got the words “outside… now”, and was able to get a shot of them before it turned into an egg shape.  Whew.  No one would have believed me had we not gotten proof!!and while the sun began to set on beautiful wine country, we got more photos of the beautiful couple and the gorgeous landscape!and then some night photos!!  Seriously?  How gorgeous is this view from Hermann Hill?

Trisha and Ryan, thank you thank you thank you for including us in your special day!!  We adore you both more than words and were so thrilled to get to be a part of the beginning of your forever!!  We look forward to seeing your family and love grow throughout the years!!  Cheers!!

This is the tip of the iceberg, so check out more of Trisha and Ryan’s day in this slideshow!!!!!
