When I am editing someone’s wedding photos, I feel a little bad sometimes that I get to relive all the awesome moments and parts of the day before I deliver the photos to the brides and grooms.  But it is really fun to go through all of the photos that I took and all of them that my second photographer, Nate took and perfect them for the couple and their families :) I am excited to share Melissa & Ed’s photos of their wonderful wedding celebration.  And I wanted to share a few from their engagement shoot that I haven’t shared yet!  I flew to Dallas, where Melissa & Ed live, and we had a great time shooting around the city and a wonderful time having tacos and margaritas afterwards :)  I enjoyed so much getting to know them.  And if you are reading this and know these two, I am sure you also adore them, because it is impossible not to :)  Ohhhhhh, I feel warm just thinking about this day in Texas! melissa-104blog melissa-187blog melissa-206blog melissa-211web melissa-215blog   And now back to their wedding day!!!!!  I will start with the girls getting ready and Melissa’s beautiful dress and super fab shoes! hegedus-8 hegedus-41TWO incredible dresses and Jimmy Choos!!!!!! hegedus-128 hegedus-70hegedus-25

Oh my gosh!  What an incredible wedding to photograph!  First off, I was already super excited to photograph such a beautiful bride with freckles and dimples to die for, second, the day was filled with beautiful moments and crazy fun!

Betsy & Jim started their day getting ready at the Kansas City Country Club, where they were having their reception.  I was ecstatic about the beautiful light pouring in the bridal room.  Crazy awesome photos straight out of the camera :)  All the bridesmaids were so lovely as well-I hope I get to photograph some of their weddings as well :).  Betsy’s robe and her mothers robe were adorned with beautiful lace made by Betsy’s mom!  While I was taking photos of all the girl fun, my second photographer, Nate, was capturing the guys getting ready and smoking cigars…..you know…guy stuff :)

I will start with the girls room :)
