A Missouri Wedding - Scott & Sara - Jefferson City, 10/23/10

This is the last wedding in Missouri for this year. Katie and I shot 8 I believe. Which is great, got to see the fam quite a bit. I do think that the best time of year to have a wedding in Missouri is in October though. It's cooler, the trees are turning colors & of course Missouri is playing football. This day in particular, the Tigers were playing #1 Oklahoma for their homecoming game. It was a pretty big deal in Missouri. BUT, an even bigger deal, was Sara & Scott's wedding. Of course!

The forcast was rain, all week it said rain, even an 80% chance. And with all the luck I have with rain, I thought, ya know, this might just be the one. BUT, I was positive. We started out with Sara and her girls getting ready at the Truman hotel.

See, Sara & Scott first, Mizzou second.
Sara & Scott's new baby Ethan was pretty stinkin cute. He hogged a lot of the attention.

This is one of the more memorable moments for me, from well, any wedding. I had never seen the groom & groomsmen eating pizza and drinking bud light out of the back of a truck prior to the wedding. It was priceless. I took at least 20 photos of this hoping one would show the pure Missouri awesomeness of this. And I think this one did.

The ceremony was held at the Memorial Baptist Church nearby. We talked about the different lighting options. Keeping on the house lights or turning them off basically. They decided with off and I think it was the right decision, the photos turned out pretty cool & dramatic. Rather than just a perfectly lit room.
These were taken at the Governer's Garden. OH and I almost forgot, 80% chance of rain?? Doesn't matter when I'm shooting the wedding. No rain until we decided to pack up. And I have witnesses. Also, I didn't tell Scott to put his leg up for this photo. Haha I love it!
Also doubles for a sweet pic if Scott decides to go into politics.

"So you want us to jump?" And they did! Trust your photographer, he's not crazy!! Maybe a little.
The lilly pads make this shot I think . Turned out great!

I had never seen this before. I love original ideas. These were Sara's grandparents photos tied to her bouquet. Loved it. The reception was back at the Truman hotel. Let the drinking and dancing begin!

The reception was a lot of fun. Lots of dancing and grabbing of butts.

I had to post this. Who plays the air sax? Really? Dude was gettin down!
And like I said, the Mizzou game came last. I hope this photo doesn't get Scott in trouble! It was too priceless to not post!

I had a blast with these guys. Sara & Scott were both just amazing to work with. A super sweet couple. Thank you guys!

I also want to give a shout out the Emily who assisted me for the day. This is her 2nd wedding with me. She did one with Katie too, but I know she likes working with me more, sorry Kate!!

In Vegas this weekend. Spent all day at a coffee shop working on photography. Last night I went to see A Perfect Circle. And they go on again tonight in 3 hours! See ya!
