Jolby ♥ St Charles, MO Wedding Photographers

Jonathan + Shelby = Jolby

We have to start out by saying this post is picture heavy. We can’t help it, this wedding was gorgeous from head to toe and we want
to share it all! We actually have the pleasure of being related to this cute little couple! Jonathan is our second cousin – so we were
extremely honored when they contacted us to shoot their wedding! He’s the life of the party and is so hysterical.
Shelby, his lovely bride, is stunning and very sweet.  They’re just so cute it almost hurts a little, you know?

They were married in late 2012 in the most incredible conservatory in downtown St. Charles, MO. Even though it rained all day the
setting couldn’t have been more beautiful. The fall colors were amazing! After a sweet ceremony we all boarded a trolly to continue
the formal photos – after snapping some cute ones at a local park, the rain came! Quick thinking Shelby directed us to a
local pub and we snapped some fantastic bridal party photos. Jolby and their friends are so laid back and awesome.

The reception was at The Grand Opera House not far from the conservatory. The decor was amazing as Shelby and
her mother had spent months collecting vintage bottles, birdhouses and details! It all came together so beautifully!
We’ve never seen a more bumpin’ reception! People were dancing all through the night!
Kathy may or may not make a cameo shaking a tail feather. Too hard to resist!

Congrats Jolby! You’re awesome! Thanks for letting us be a part of your big day!
