Amy and Terry's wedding day was incredibly special! They got married at 370 Lakeside Park, with the beautiful lake behind them. Despite the blaring heat and sun, it was a beautiful day, and a beautiful spot to see Amy and Terry become Mr. and Mrs. Reiners!
Amy and I met in middle school. Two of her bridesmaids are also friends she met in school, and the other two are her sisters. It's been great getting to re-know her, her new husband and their wonderful children!
I couldn't be happier for them!
I just love this image. It's sort of like following the tradition of not seeing the bride before the wedding ... or, at least all of the bride! Like a sneak peek! They got ready at Heather, one of the bridesmaid's, house and there were these super epic windows. It was so fun to take advantage of!
So much expression and excitement. I love it!
The girls get Taco Bell, the guys get shots!
The happy couple! Amy looks stunning!
These three are super adorable! They are the bride and groom's children, Macie, Jason and Ethan. They were also super good sports during family photo time!
Both of their speeches were so sweet. Each really showed their love for one another and how important they are to each other and to their children.
After the ceremony, we went down to New Town in St. Charles and got some wonderful images of the bride, groom and wedding party.
New Town is where Jared and I got married, so it was awesome to be on the other side of the camera and spot out the dozens of great locations. I mean, look at these bridges!
I think this might be one of my absolute favorites, of all time. It is awesome when the bride and groom trust you and don't mind you invading their space. It's the true emotion, like Amy and Terry have here, that make the best pictures!
And even though it was just early September, I loved how these little space looked like fall. I mean, all the leaves!! Though, I'm still sorry they got stuck in Amy's dress!
It makes me happy the sun falls like it does in the afternoons. I love getting to see the town (and more bridges!) behind them like this.
I think this may have been the most fun cake cutting I've ever seem. I mean, look at Terry's face in that first picture. And really that second picture, too. He was super outgoing, and it really made Amy so happy.
Congratulations Amy and Terry!
