Kelly and Nick 10.20.12 / by Bolla Photo

We had an absolutely fantastic time with Kelly and Nick! We started the morning at their home where the guys all relaxed after getting ready. We then made our way over to Kelly’s mom’s house where the girls were enjoying mimosas in their matching robes as they made themselves even more beautiful.

One of my favorite parts of any wedding is interaction between a bride and her father during the few moments before they walk down the aisle.  After taking turns wiping tears from their eyes, Kelly and her father, Bill, gave each other one last reassuring look before heading to the altar. Once the vows had been said and the rings exchanged, the couple were led out of the church by a bagpiper, in keeping with the McMackins’ Irish heritage.

Kelly and Nick built in lots of time in their day’s schedule for portraits.  We started at the beautiful Carondelet Park and then were led through the Anheuser Busch brewery for more portraits. Next it was time for McGurk’s in Soulard, where the bridal party helped Kelly and Nick get the party started early.  And they continued having a blast all night at the spectacular Neo on Locust.

Nick and Kelly, we are so happy for you two! Congratulations again!
