Chris and Stacy were married today!
Chris and Stacy have to be one of the nicest couples we’ve photographed. They are so sweet together, and always smiling. During his speech, Chris spoke about how grateful he was to have met Stacy, and you can see it in his eyes…he simply adores her and she absolutely reciprocates.
I loved Stacy’s Maggie Soterro bubble hemmed gown and the ‘maids darling eggplant cocktail dresses from The Wedding Shoppe. They carried mostly vibrant green blooms, designed by Cole’s Flowers, which popped perfectly against the dresses. Both colors really stood out in photographs with the soft overcast light.
The couple decided to have their wedding in Stacy’s home town of New Prague, and had quite a fete! The ceremony took place in the lovely St Wenceslaus right on Main Street, which luckily had some beautiful interiors and a covered front portico that gave us plenty of backdrops even in the rain. After the ceremony, the rain stopped and the wedding party were troopers and let us march them along train tracks on the hunt for cool places to shoot. Most of the time, we were rockin away on the party bus, with a very climatic few moments navigating the round-about in town.
At The Park Ballroom, guests enjoyed a candy and snack buffet and the company of about 400 people…that’s how you throw a wedding New Prague style! As well as the delicious home cookin’ of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and fresh from the farm milk. Patty’s Place created a fun polka dot and striped cake which everyone enjoyed. After speeches and a slide show, Instant Request got the party started! The most tender moment was during the anniversary dance, where everyone lined the dance floor to watch three couples that had been married for over 50 years!
Chris and Stacy, thank you so much for having us be a part of your day, it was such a blast =) Here are our favorite images, enjoy!
