{Abby and Ezra} Wedding

I'm going to use two words that aren't in my everyday vocabulary.
{Simply lovely}
Yep, those are the words that describe this wedding.
I've known Abby for quite a few years now and I think she's awesome, so awesome that it was hard to believe some guy hadn't snatched her up yet.
You know those stories where a girl marries a guy and then you ask yourself 
"hmm, I wonder if he has a brother?"
Well this is one of those stories.
One of Abby's sisters had married Ezra's brother awhile back and I always had thought to myself...hmm, I wonder if he has a brother for Abby.
Well so happens that he did, it just took a little bit for them to figure out that they loved each other and wanted to get married.
Abby had been working in Chicago for a couple years until she decided to go move to Missouri to help with some political campaigning. 
And who do you think was from MO?
Yes, Ezra, the unmarried brother.
To make a long story short, Ezra decided that he indeed did love his brother's sister-in-law and wondered if she could love him back so he asked her.
Abby wondered too!
They had been friends for years and she never had even really considered the possibility, but it didn't take her long to realize that she could and did love him back and she felt it was the Lord's direction for her life.
What do you do after you realize a thing like that?
You plan the wedding!
I'm so happy I was able to capture Abby and Ezra's special day and I hope you enjoy their images.

The beautiful foggy Kentucky countryside.
















Abby had always wanted to get married in the Estes chapel that was right down the road from her house. When the time came for her to book a venue she was very happy the the busy chapel did actually have a time-slot available for her wedding. Later on she went to a bridal show that the chapel was having, entered a drawing and won the grand prize, which happened to be getting the facility for free!

Here's a shot we got the night before, while we were scouting locations.
You can see why she wanted the place!











This was definitely not my first military wedding, but it was my first sword arch.

I was so happy when I heard the reception was going to be held at Abby's house!


Pie reception, yes please!






No, it's not just you...they really enjoyed kissing...a lot.
Gotta love it.




As you can see their guests had quite a fun time pelting them with rice.



 This looks like a good start to happily ever after to me.

  2. Perhaps it's because my dad spent over 30 years in the military, or because I think the Marines are the best (you have to love dress blues), or because red is my favorite color, or because apple pie is my favorite-est dessert to make (besides chocolate chip cookies)...but this has got to be one of my favorite weddings you've shot, Evy!! It really was simply lovely. :-)
