Laura loves Matt!

This wedding was so much fun! And emotional! I have to admit I got a little teary eyed several times on Laura and Matt's big day, August 2nd. They're just so great, and so obviously madly in love. Every time Matt looked at Laura you could see the love in his eyes. Oh! I'm getting all verklempt just writing about it! Their very first date was playing pool at Phantom Canyon, so it meant a lot to them to have their reception in the upstairs ballroom there. Everything was just wonderful. Can't wait to play trivia with you Matt, my challenge still stands...

Congrats and big hugs you guys! Tamera

Wedding ceremony: First Lutheran Church
Wedding reception:
Phantom Canyon Brewery
Bridal Elegance
Bride's footwear:
Adidas (!!!)
Platte Floral

Here's Julia the flower girl practicing her skills in the hallway just before the ceremony.

Laura wanted a photograph that shows off the back of her dramatic gown.

Matt and Laura met online, and their first date was at this very pool table at Phantom Canyon.

They had their rings custom-designed.

Their first dance was to a Dave Matthews song.

Laura's dad Richard is a professional magician. At the reception he went from table to table doing card tricks, to everyone's delight.

Voila! Laura calls this the "How'd he do that?" face.

Listening to a wonderful toast from Matt's sister Jess.

Richard's toast to the happy couple included both sage advice and a bit of legerdemain!

Little girls loooove to dance.

Last shot of the night.
