Emily & Nick: The Cheerleader and the Lacrosse Coach / by Bolla Photo

These high school sweethearts met on MySpace. Even though Nick may not have been the football star expected for this daddy's girl cheerleader. his being a "Champion of Character" eventually won Tim over. And just how right these two are together was evident all day long, from the excitement in the morning, to the stolen glances during the ceremony (my favorites!), right down to the last dance of the night. Not to mention...they look downright adorable together too!

Nick proposed to Emily on the forth of July (2012) at Kiener Plaza, so they were hoping to return there for photos on their wedding day. Unfortunately, by the time we reached St. Louis, it started to pour down raining. Emily decided to brave the weather and make a run for it. Unfortunately, the narrow overhangs between columns did not provide enough shelter to get the desired photos without the bride and groom getting completely drenched. So we all dodged (or at least attempted to dodge) rain drops back to the bus, ready for Plan B. Thankfully, the rain finally cleared up and we even able to do some photos outside at Union Station, and again once we arrived at the Regency.

Congratulations, Emily & Nick!
