Kate not only happens to be a wonderful friend of mine (and bridesmaid), but is also a local photographer. I was thrilled to be able to attend http://viagracanadausa.com/ her wedding, and am even more excited to share her wedding with you.

Kate grew up in South Carolina and move to St. Louis a few years ago. Her husband happened to be the Pilot’s college roommate, but grew up in Osh Kosh, WI. Since many of their guests would have to travel no matter where they held their wedding, they decided to host it in St. Louis, the city in which they call home. Kate (and her mother) did a fantastic job of really making the wedding about tradition and meaningful details with modern touches here and there.

    Colin’s face when he saw first saw Kate gets me every time. It is by far my favorite!
    It was definitely a wedding full of emotion!
