Bridals in STL!

When Matt and I started planning our wedding we had a dilemma that we had to work out before everything. One of Matt's best friends, Jeremy Cavness, is a professional wedding photographer. He takes AMAZING photos and I so wanted him as our photographer. BUT Matt also wanted him as a groomsmen. We gave Jeremy the two options of either being in the wedding or taking the pictures. Of course he choose being in the wedding which was what we knew he would choose. Eventhough I had to hire someone else to take photos, Jeremy still helped us out with our engagement pictures and my bridals. While we were in STL a few days before the wedding we went to Downtown STL and took my bridals. They turned out AMAZING as I knew they would. He even got his shot of me and the arch in the background. We love Jeremy and are so blessed that he could help us with our pictures as well as being a part of our wedding. You can check him out at


I can't believe that is has been 2 months since the wedding and honeymoon. It seems like years ago now. I thought I would share some of our honeymoon pictures. We went to Riviera Maya, Mexico. We had perfect weather and the landscape was amazing. We went to Cozumel one day. We took the water ferry over to Cozumel from Playa del Carmen and spent the whole day filled with snorkeling and sight seeing. A few days later we went to Cancun and took a personal boat through a lagoon where we parked and then snorkeled. It was our favorite thing to do there. Here are some pictures of our trip.

On rainy days games are brought out. We played until the rain stopped! So much fun!

I thought that I would share some of my favorite pictures that were taken during the wedding. The professional pictures have not come back yet, but I have seen them and they are amazing. Thank you to all of you that were there during our special day. We had a TON of fun and enjoyed every bit of it.
