This adorable couple got married on a memorable day — 11/11/11. (They'll have no trouble remembering their anniversary in the future!) Kayla and all the girls began getting ready at the new house she and Tony were moving into (the day before!), then moved on to Word of Faith Center. It was a whirlwind of action with all of the moms, bridesmaids, sisters, and flower-girls scrambling about getting ready. Kayla was such a beautiful bride! One of our favorite parts about winter weddings is when they wear gorgeous fur wraps. It is always encouraging to see such a show of support — they had one of the biggest bridal parties we've seen — seven on each side! They chose not too see each other before the ceremony, so the first time he saw her was as she walked down the aisle. It was a very sweet ceremony, complete with a slideshow of the couple playing while they took communion. They had some adorable little flower girls and ring bearer, who almost made it all the way up without help. :)
After the ceremony, we got to take them around for portraits at the church and along the river behind the Shilo Inn in Richland. Both had some great opportunities for us and some beautiful fall colors still clinging to the trees. Unfortunately we got cut a bit short by rain but it held out long enough to get most of the family. At the Shilo Inn they had a big reception — it was a great day for a lot of family and friends on both sides to come together, dance, and have fun. Like a lot of couples this year, they had cupcakes for the guests. But their cupcakes were assembled as bouquets and put together so well that it took us awhile to realize that they were fact dessert, not flowers! It was a beautiful and memorable day and we wish Kayla and Tony the best!
