Erica & Kris | St. Louis Wedding Photographer

Thursday, October 17, 2019

This weekend was just so much fun! While it was a bit harder shooting two weddings in one weekend at 32 weeks pregnant, I still had an absolute blast working alongside Justin and his younger brother, Jordan, to capture Erica & Kris' wedding day!

Erica and her bridesmaids sipped mimosas while getting ready at The Legends Country Club in Eurkea, MO. In their monogrammed shirts and matching shorts, the girls' anticipation was rising while waiting for Erica to get in her dress. Kris mentioned that someone asked Erica if she was going to get cold feet and she said she would just wear thicker socks. While wearing a robe made from her mom's wedding dress and feet decked out in thick socks, Erica admired her wedding dress before doing a first look with her dad.

There were tears, lots of happy tears, throughout the entire day. Starting with mom as she watched Erica get her makeup finished by Shannon of STL Glam by Shan. And they didn't stop when Erica and her dad did their first look.

As we were getting Erica set up for the first look, Erica stood a few feet behind Kris while the breeze blew. Kris said, "I can smell her... she smells so good." All of our hearts melted in a puddle.

Happy tears were on our faces as Kris walked him mom down the aisle and as Andy walked Erica down the aisle to give her away. Kris' late father left little hints of his presence through out the day. As we wrapped up family pictures, a train whistle blew, almost to say "I love you".  As Erica and Andy danced their father daughter dance, Judy watched nearby
