{08.02.2008} Congratulations Chelsea & Josh!

Saturday was fabulous. St. Joseph truly is the city of romance. The atmosphere, the beach, the waves, the city, the people.

When I first met with Chelsea the plan was to not see Josh before the ceremony. A few weeks ago they changed their mind so they could do most all of their pictures before the ceremony. But where to have their first meet? The Margaret Upton Arboretum of course! I just love Josh's smile...

And the pinks...gorgeous!

Boys just before the ceremony...

You can't have a St. Joseph wedding and skip the lighthouse...LOVE THIS!

An absolutely fabulous bridal party!

An ecstatic groom!

And an almost kiss...I LOVE the almost kiss. So romantic.

There are so many treasures in this small city. The Priscilla Byrns Heritage Center is to die for. The natural light, the elegance, the beauty...and of course Chelsea's touch!

Have an amazing time in Florida this week you two! Thank you for an absolutely amazing day!

(I seriously want to move back! ::sniff sniff::)
