Alyx+Kie

Say hello to Alyx and Kie again!  Like many of our couples, we photographed their engagement too.

Let’s talk about Alyx’s gorgeous hair!  Woah!

2016-09-16_0002

Alyx and all the girls had hair and makeup done at Ol’ Hairitage Beauty and Boutique in Paris, Illinois.  After the ladies were all dolled up, many of them went shopping for cute outfits.  Really cool location.

And this lady really is her Mama Bear!  She’s the one who raised Alyx.

Here’s Kie!

And there’s Kie’s mom on the left giving him a hug.

I like this girl’s thinking.  Better eat now!  Brides, don’t forget to plan time into your schedule to eat before the ceremony.

Alyx and Kie traded letters before the ceremony.  My view on the left and Nick’s view on the right.

They’re standing at the entrance of First Christian Church which is also where we took images of her dress.

We took a stroll across the street for some bridesmaid and junior bridesmaid shots.  Love the dresses!

2016-09-16_0016

Real life here, folks.  Sometimes you don’t want your picture taken; you just want a nap.

2016-09-16_0015

Hello, handsome fellas.

Prettiest door greeter I’ve ever seen!

2016-09-16_0021

This is why I love staying with the bride during those last moments before she walks down the aisle.

2016-09-16_0023

First time we’ve seen this!  Alyx had a friend paint the ceremony as it was happening.  So cool!

Nick’s view.

2016-09-16_0026

My view.  Birdseed everywhere!  I think I even found some in my clothes later that evening.

2016-09-16_0027

When we arrived at Idle Creek Golf Course for the reception, we snapped a few more bridesmaid pictures.  Lovely, ladies.

2016-09-16_0028

The whole gang!

2016-09-16_0029

So many weddings are a whirlwind of a day, so I love it when the bride and groom get to spend some alone time with each other.

Umm…no words for this cake.

2016-09-16_0033

Eeekk!  I always get giddy when I see prints have been made from our couple’s engagement session!

2016-09-16_0034

First dance.

2016-09-16_0035

Father-daughter dance and mother-son dance.

2016-09-16_0037

Alyx wanted some sunset images, so we grabbed these two for a few minutes during their reception and sneaked out.  I couldn’t resist this green barn!

Unbelievably pretty, Alyx!

2016-09-16_0041

Yes to comfy reception shoes!

2016-09-16_0042

This girl was on it all night taking pictures of people dancing.

Love last dances surrounded by family and friends.
