Meg and Carter's Joplin Wedding Moments

Hey everybody!

I've been sharing a beautiful vintage circus themed wedding with you over the past couple days, but I have yet to show you all the sweet moments that REALLY make up the wedding day... what the wedding day is actually about. 

I love that we got all the Bourne girls in one image.  I just love these moments as her sister and mother get Meg ready for her first reveal/first look with Carter.

I love Meg's sweet smile as she sees Carter for the first time.  I also love the crowd witnessing through the glass wall at the back of the church sanctuary.

Meg and Carter had a special first meeting in the church sanctuary that was just perfect. I love these because the couple gets to spend a few minutes of real moments with each other, soaking in not only their WEDDING DAY, but EACH OTHER.

Here's a talented bunch of bridemaids! Musicians, artists, dancers, and all-around genuine ladies!

Sweet first kiss.  Also notice that you can see the parents' heads in the frame.  Purposeful... I'm proud of this kiss shot.

So I showed the jaw-dropping display on yesterday's post, and here it is again hanging above the bride and groom during their first dance.  Precious and priceless.

Then the party got rockin' thanks to my lifelong best friend Tom, who DJ'd the event.

Balloons played a central role in the engagement (and bridal portraits), and the end of the wedding reception showed the bride and groom releasing the balloons into the world.
