Every now and then things just fall into the right place.  That is how I feel about this wedding :)  Mary emailed me just a few weeks before her and Harley were to be wed and it was the only Saturday I did not have booked in May.  Their wedding was in Richmond, MO.   I was glad I had it open, as I love small town weddings and intimate personal receptions.   After a lovely drive through some small towns with lots of gorgeous green fields and no cell reception, I arrived at the church ahead of schedule completely refreshed and excited to meet everyone.  It was such a wonderful ceremony that was truly personal and delightful.  The ceremony reminded me of one of my favorite parts of weddings~getting to know the couple and families stories.  I feel honored to get to know such wonderful people, and Mary & Harley are truly wonderful  people.  Neither of them had ever been married before and it seems even more special that they found each other and added to their happiness.  Their families were so wonderful and full of love for the two of them.

Mary wore her mother’s wedding dress which was so beautiful and perfect.
