Holly and Robert held a beautiful wedding in front of family and friends at the Timber Ridge Event Center in Amazonia, Missouri. It is not too often that I get to photograph one of my dearest friends weddings, but this time, I was able to! It was a long trip from Florida to Missouri, lugging around all the important gear I can't live without while shooting weddings, but to have a front seat to the happiest day of Holly's life, it was so very worth it.
Holly was exactly the bride I imagined her to be. She was calm, relaxed and ready to go with the flow. She was beaming with her bright smile every moment I clicked my cameras shutter, and she found the moments worth laughing about.
I had the pleasure of meeting Robert once before their wedding just days after they were engaged, and I saw then how perfect these two fit together. But on their wedding day, it felt different. It was even better. You could see these two being best friends and soul mates. Not just in love. But everything you ever hope your greatest love will be. The way Robert adores Holly, and how he looks at her, is exactly what Holly deserves and what she took her time searching for, never taking less.
If there is one things I know about Holly, it's her dedication to the ones she loves. So I know Robert is gaining a lifetime partner full of love, friendship, laughter, and a partner in crime.
Robert and Holly, thank you for the honor of capturing your wedding day. Being able to do that for a friend and sorority sister of 15+ years is truly a gift to me. Cheers to a lifetime ahead!
A special thank you to Amber of Amber Garrett Photography for coming in as a second photographer for the reception portion of the evening.
