Weston and Kelly were married today!
If you’re going to have your wedding on the 4th of July weekend, why not go all out, right? Weston and Kelly had a patriotic red, white and blue wedding and the hot weather went right with their theme “Sparks Will Fly”. Kelly was so prepared for her big day that we were ahead of schedule pretty much the entire time, which let us have some fun with pictures, especially with Mickey’s Diner right across the street.
The ladies wore navy blue and all carried darling parasols. I loved their ruffled shoes and Kelly’s ruffled dress…she is good at tying in those style themes!
Because of the severe heat, we went back and forth from outside to inside the gloriously air conditioned church. Weston and Kelly were fabulous with staying relaxed and going with the flow.
Church of the Assumption in St Paul is simply beautiful…add a beautiful bride, and you get this…
After the ceremony, the guests were led by the bridal party on a short walk to the Landmark Center. It was a patriotic parade!
Waiting inside The Landmark Center was air conditioning, cold drinks, and more of the 4th of July. Vibrant blue up lighting enhanced the columns of the atrium, and jars of homemade jam served as escort cards. More fun typography by the bride’s sister tied everything together. La Petite Fleur (as usual) created stunning, fun, and unique arrangements for the space, using a variety of heights and blooms. The bouquets were lovely, vibrant and fun, and got a ton of compliments! We are always excited when we get to work with Carra and Jessica!
The wedding party braved the heat one last time for a few more images during the cocktail hour…John and I were shooting lightning fast to try and keep them from melting!
The flowers provided the perfect pop of color and were so creative and fun!
And I just LOVED Kelly’s red parasol!
After cocktail hour, the wedding party had their grand march which was immediately followed by Weston and Kelly’s first dance. A wonderful dinner with BBQ inspired items from True Tastes Event Catering was followed by darling and delicious cupcakes from A Cupcake Social.
Weston and Kelly, thank you so much for having us tell the story of your day! You were fantastic and so fun to work with! Enjoy your sneak peek!
