What do you get when you add a dazzling jeweled bouquet, “amor” maracas, and two people who are absolutely nuts about each other?!

A drop dead gorgeous wedding. Back in October, Veronica and Pat tied the not at Hawthorne House located in Parkville, Missouri. When I first met Veronica and Pat I felt like I was meeting up with some old friends. Veronica has the most contagious personality, while Pat knows exactly what to do to make her smile. And to top it, the two of them had a little baby, Gabe, just weeks before the wedding. Veronica had not a clue that she was pregnant, and Gabe was just as healthy as could be. Veronica had told me that he was their little miracle baby. I was so excited to photograph their family and be a part of such a stunning occasion. 

The two of them were just all smiles all day long!

Straight from the first look, I could not get them to stop smiling and looking at each other. Veronica and Pat have such a natural love for one another that made my job way too easy! Veronica’s giggle can make just about anyone smile and Pat was no exception. Even little Gabe graced us with a grin when his parents kissed! It was oh so adorable. And can we just note how beautiful, and stunning Veronica was?! That dress!!!  

Can we note those gorgeous details?!

I enjoyed the little dashes of dazzling details that I think totally encompasses Veronica and Pat. I could not get over their bouquets, the reception additions of maracas and beautiful centerpieces, along with adding a mariachi band during cocktail hour?! And to top it all off, we were graced with the most beautiful sunset! Thank you again Veronica and pat for honoring me to document your special day!
