On Natalie and Louis' wedding day the sun didn't shine and it rained for most of the day, but that wasn't going to stop them from celebrating their special day! It was a fun day hanging out with them and their friends and family, even if we did get a little wet! :) Their wedding ceremony was at St. Isidore's and there reception followed shortly after at the Legion here in town.
The day started off in Manhattan at The Hampton Inn where her and her bridesmaids were going to be getting their hair and make-up done. I arrived just as things were getting underway. The morning was spent getting all ready to go for the wedding which would happen in a few hours.
At Natalie and Louis' first look, Louis had a big grin on his face has he turned around to see his bride-to-be. They shared a sweet embrace after that and then Natalie took a step back so Louis could take another look at this bride.
After their first look we ventured outside, but not to far since it was raining. Luckily the church had a nice little awning for Natalie and Louis to stand under so they could stay dry, while I ventured out into the rain and got some pictures. It wasn't raining too hard, so don't feel too sorry for me! :) It was a pretty nice day weather wise besides the fact that it was raining/misting for most of the day.
After the wedding, Natalie, Louis and I went to the Kansas State Gardens to get some more pictures. It was still lightly raining/misting at this point, but we were determined to get some great pictures and that we did! I have had a clear umbrella that I have been waiting use for over a year now and I was excited that I was finally going to be able to use it! Every other wedding I'd had that said it was going to rain; it never ended up raining. I had a good time exploring the gardens with them and getting to take a few pictures with the umbrella as well!
After pictures we headed to their reception where their friends and family were waiting for them to arrive. Their reception was a fun affair. Around sunset, I stole Natalie and Louis away for a little bit, as it had stopped raining at this point, to get a few sunset pictures. There wasn't much for a sunset that evening, but we made it work and got some good pictures.
