amy + ryan . . . married underneath a houppa perched on the bluffs at Les Bourgeois Vineyards overlooking the Missouri River.
amy and ryan's wedding day was as heartfelt and moving as a day can possibly be. rich in spirit,
rich in laughter, rich in love, rich in jewish traditions . . . their houpa, first outside:
and then, when the rain teased us, we moved inside:
signing the ketubah before the ceremony:
jumping over the broom (great action shots by annika) at ceremony's end:
and at the start of the reception, sharing bread:
followed by toasts from loved ones, including a moving tribute to ryan from his brother:
amy and ryan both got ready at the Schoolhouse B&B in Rocheport . . . it's a private, lovely spot
both indoors and out. this first shot of guys getting ready is by karen:
and then we took advantage of the B&B's beautiful grounds for a private moment:
and time with friends:
amy and ryan's day was glorious! It was difficult to choose pictures for this blog entry; there
was so much more to their day than what a handful of photos could portray. So be sure to
watch their wedding slideshow to see it all unfold.
