A Castle Wedding | Brooke & Josh 05.06.17

Get ready to view a GORGEOUS colorful wedding of Mr. & Mrs. Josh Smith who married 1 month ago! I was definitely eager to get working on these images after shooting at the stunning Villa Kathrine, located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River. This Moroccan-style home was built in 1900 and had a breathtaking view along with exquisite architecture and design inside and outside that made for some fantastic portraits. It was a beautiful day in May with the sun shining, an outdoor ceremony, and a cute carnival happening in downtown Quincy that we totally took advantage! Brooke looked glowing in her gown with delicate details to match. I'm so happy she chose to be an MVP Bride!! I loved the vibrance of her flowers and bridesmaid dresses - everything looked perfect together! It was also so sweet to see how close Brooke and her mom are, reminded me a lot like my mom and I!! I loved capturing Brooke & Josh's wedding day filled with joyful tears, laughter, and priceless memories. I hope you enjoy these lovely photos as much as I do...
