Millstadt Wedding Photographers - St. James Wedding Photos BY Oldani Photography
Millstadt / St. James Catholic Church / NEO
Our love affair with Millstadt brides continues! When Jessica and Chris contacted us we were so excited to meet up with them knowing that Jessica was from Millstadt. We had so much fun on their engagement shoot that Chris got a promotion. Well, maybe it wasn't directly because of us, but I'm going to claim it anyways!
When the wedding day arrived we were excited to see them, the Millstadt crew, and to kick off our 2015 Wedding Year! It just occurred to me that Jessica and Chris were our first meeting of 2014 and our first wedding of 2015. First baby of 2016? LOL Just kidding, no pressure, but seriously.
We arrived at Jessica's parent's house for the giggles and the fun buzz around these giddy girls getting ready. I loved her shoes and how they shimmered from silver to gold depending on how you looked at them. Jessica's borrowed and blue was the garter was worn by her mother and her grandmother on their wedding days. I am torn between my two favorite moments. The first was when Jessica read her letter from Chris. Tears streamed down her face and she said "I never knew he could write." The second was an incredible moment between her and her father.
The ceremony was well attended with guests spilling over into the balcony of St. James Catholic Church. With so many family and friends there to share in their joy, their marriage was off to a great start. Being the same church that Jessica's parents were married in, we were sure to take a couple of photos that were reminiscent of some from their wedding day.
Their reception was held at NEO. The band was rocking, the refreshments were flowing, and confetti flew as they were announced in. This was their day, and it was their "Best Day Ever!"
