Oh my goodness!  There were so many jaw dropping moments to Josh & Emily’s wedding day.  I was excited to be shooting a wedding on a Friday in October where the weather was still wonderful on a rooftop in the city.  The rain held off until the evening and the temperatures were perfect.  I started the day off with the girls at Hotel Phillips getting ready while my associate photographer, Nate, was hanging with the boys.  Lindsay Howes, with Simple Elegance was the planner so I  had no worries about it running smoothly :)

Josh & Emily’s ceremony was at the Rooftop Park above Cosentino’s in the Power and Light District  with their reception a block away at The Gallery.  Blue Bouquet did an incredible job with the flowers and the reception.  Walking into the reception was definitely a jaw dropping moment.  And the super cool thing is that Emily & Josh gave Blue Bouquet full creative freedom and had no idea what the reception was going to look like before they walked in!!!!!!!  And to top it off, their wedding band was Lost Wax!  If you have ever heard them, you know just how awesome the dancing and music was that night!

I am going to start with Emily’s lovely dresses!  She had a great 2nd dress for the late night dancing!!!!kropf-29 kropf-52

It is such a beautiful moment when a brides mom looks at her baby girl in her wedding dress :)kropf-81

I already knew that Josh was a got it all together kind of guy but when I saw Nate’s getting ready photos at Josh’s apartment, my suspicion was confirmed :)  He had shoes, socks, belts and watches ready for all the groomsmen!  They were ballin for sure :)

I could have posted about a bazillion more detail shots here but tried to show the awesomeness here.  The candles on the hanging shelf above the bridal table!  The tables were all set with a glass of champagne and bottles of wine.  Beatiful golds, blues and candles everywhere.  It was elegant and fanciful.  I loved it :)kropf-452 kropf-826 kropf-786
