This past weekend I had the honor of photographing the Hayes Wedding.
Nadia & Tommy
I met these lovebirds last year when photographing their engagement photos around the Missouri Botanical Gardens, but Nadia & Tommy began their love story long ago in college. Being a witness of the celebration of their love was a total honor! I enjoyed hearing the beautiful words that their Maid of Honor and Best Man spoke during the toasts that led me to get to know even more about them. Nadia & Tommy have spent the past 8 years alongside each other growing together as a couple and learning A LOT of life lessons...including a story about how Tommy ended up without Eyebrows and Nadia spent the day early in their relationship helping him draw them back on! HAHA! We'll just have to save that story for another time. One life lesson they have been more focused on together in the past year is raising their daughter Emily. The light of their lives and the joy in all of their days! This little lady is their reason and inspiration in life. While Tommy wasn't the most excited about having his photo taken, he knew these would be the photos his beautiful little girl would be able to look back on and see that her mom and dad stood in front of all of their family and friends to commit their love and lives to each other and to her. Yes, the tears were def building up!!! Nadia and Tommy, Thank you! Thank you for asking me to be a part of your wedding day and story. I can't wait to see all your future holds!
