Summer is in full swing and everything about Michael & Lilly’s wedding included the best parts of summer! Since Lilly had planned a smaller wedding celebration, the whole stress of downsizing was never an issue. It actually worked out so perfectly for them and was the best reflection of their love & story. Not to mention, I know Lilly loves purple and her flowers were completely gorgeous and summery! These little pops of color throughout the day truly tied everything together in the best way!
The best things often come when we least expect it! There was a scheduling conflict with the church for the beginning of the day, but this ended up being a blessing in disguise. We started photos at Lilly’s childhood home and it could not have been a better location for them. Lilly’s parents just recently listed their house on the market, so this ended up being the “grand finale” of memories for them with this house. How special is that!
We then took a few pictures before their ceremony at Lilly’s parents home and then a few Holy Spirit Catholic Church. We were all so thankful for the indoor ceremony with lots of air conditioning – yes!! Their ceremony was so sweet and I found myself getting lost in what their priest shared and spoke for the couple (he was from Ethiopia and was amazing).
Afterwards we headed to Ray’s on the River for their lunchtime reception. I have been to Ray’s a handful of times but never knew they had such a beautiful garden tent in the back. What a lovely surprise! We loved exploring the riverside garden and capturing candids of their guests. It was such a relaxed, happy and easy-going wedding! Just like Lilly & Michael! It was such an honor to be there and create these memories for them. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Keyes!
