Today was Ellie and Chris' wedding! They were married at St. Matthews (best church lighting in the sanctuary, ever,) and had their portraits and reception at one of my favorite venues; the Boerner Botanical Gardens!
Chris' brother is in a band called The Abominable No Men, and they rocked the reception. We had amazing weather, amazing light, and amazing food. What a fabulous day!
Church: St. Matthew's
Venue: Boerner Botanical Gardens
Band: The Abominable No Men
Flowers: The Flower Lady
Love this dress.
The ladies were playing Kings in the Corner. I thought I knew a lot of card games, but I had to ask what they were playing. Someone needs to teach me this one!
The guys were huddled around a video tutorial on folding pocket handkerchiefs! Love it!
They rented a classic Lincoln - this particular one was actually used in the original Mission Impossible!
They had SUCH gorgeous colors this weekend. Look at this fiery tree!
I climbed up in a tree for this shot. TOTALLY worth it!!!
...P.S.... There is a video of me in the tree doing those shots. I'll share it as soon as I get it! :) Super kudos thanks to the groomsmen for being at the ready with their iPhones! SO, in the meantime, here are some photos courtesy of Chris's brother Dan. :)
I'm completely in love with their place card idea. These are all little pumpkins and gourds grown by the Groom's mother! What a fabulous, DIY style touch.
