elizabeth + austin ~ st. louis area wedding photos by silverbox

Sure do love the above picture of elizabeth and austin at the close of their wedding ceremony; the priest asked

elizabeth's and austin's parents to stand in honor of all they'd done to raise these two. Wow . . . a moving moment!

Everything . . . yes, everything, about elizabeth and austin's wedding was a joy. For starters, i got to spend a bit of time

photographing the GROOM getting ready . . . love it when that happens! and can you tell what's going on in that

second frame below? (Q: how many guys does it take to fold a pocket handkerchief? A: nine (plus a laptop and the internet))

we took advantage of beautiful natural light streaming in through the back of the sanctuary . . . and check out elizabeth's

veil (boths shot of  veil below are annika's). Hurray for two shooters! at the exact moment that annika made that picture

of elizabeth and her dad from behind, i made the picture of austin watching and waiting at the opposite end of the aisle:

From a sun-drenched exit, we took a stroll through downtown St. Charles . . . beautiful at holiday time!

And the reception was held at one of my favorite spots: St. Charles' Foundry Art Center which use to be a train car factory

(this was silverbox's 2nd delightful evening spent at the foundry . . . remember emily + jeff's wedding in february?)

be sure to watch elizabeth and austin's wedding slideshow . . . and keep checking the blog . . . lots more

entries to post over the next few weeks. congrats, elizabeth and austin!
