Marie Louise: bridal preparation :D {sedalia, mo bridal portrait photographer}


Hey, y'all! I've been in Sedalia, Missouri since last Friday and I will be flying home tomorrow. I have had SUCH a wonderful time!! But I'll save the details of my trip for another post :).

The main reason I planned this trip to Sedalia was because my friend Marie was getting married!! Anyway, after the rehearsal, she asked if I would come along with her and her personal attendant to her make-up and hair appointments to take pictures!! I gladly said yes :D.

I was so happy that both places had great natural lighting pouring in!



And I was happily surprised that my friend Heather Vaught was going to do her make-up! I didn't know she worked there. She did a great job :D.






Love this mirror shot :D.




Marie's ring is SO beautiful.


And so is Marie :D.



Love this angle! :D








Marie is blessed with much beautiful hair :D.




Loved her veil :).



And here's Marie's personal attendant and good friend of mine: Elizabeth Gates :D. She too is getting married!! Next month in fact to Marie's husband's younger brother! So I get to make another trip to Missouri next month; I'll just be going a little further north to Kirksville :D. Isn't she precious? Love her :D.


Her hair wasn't done yet though...


...she wanted her younger sister/maid of honor to do the finishing touches. Abby is GREAT with hair.


Ok, now I know I told y'all I'd be posting pictures from this wedding. Well, I ended up not taking any. The reason why is when we arrived at the church building after the appointments, the main photographer was there and had two second shooters with her instead of one like I thought she was going to have. I didn't want to add stress and make it four photographers, so I just put my camera down and enjoyed the wedding :). I did snap this shot below though so you get to see two of the bridesmaid dresses. They were SO beautiful and modest! The whole wedding was so beautiful. Christian weddings are the best and they encourage me so much!! :)


Ok, I have to mention a highlight of the wedding day: the dancing. I hadn't had that much fun in a long time!! We did the normal slow dancing, the cha cha slide (my request ;) ), the electric slide, the macarena, and we just had fun doing free style with our friends :D. I didn't realize that my friends were such GOOD dancers!! It was a blast :D.

With a smile,
