Karye & Alan: St. Louis Blues Hockey Fans Wed / by Bolla Photo

It's been just under two years since I first met Karye and Alan. They were a bridesmaid and groomsman for the wedding of Karye's brother and sister-in-law. (See some of Ben and Meredith's wedding photos HERE.) I greatly enjoyed working with the Hutton family the first time around, so I was definitely looking forward to this next wedding. I got a better glimpse into the special bond the Hutton's have, which was evident throughout the day. Ben and Karye's younger sister, Bailey, mentioned the wonderful example of love set by their parents, Joe and Barb, during her maid-of-honor speech. It was so cute watching her and Joe dance later in the night (see photo down below).

Karye and Alan exchanged vows overlooking the beautiful Japanese Garden at Missouri Botanical Gardens.

From the Botanical Gardens, we, of course, had to stop for some photos at the home of the Blues. LET'S GO BLUES

Sunset Hills Country Club is a beautiful venue and looked even better with the blue and yellow accents Karye chose. Her "Starry Night" theme was particularly reflected in the invitations, cake, and in the lighted accents throughout the ballroom. Joe made the hanging light bubbles that glowed beautifully, especially for the Karye and Alan's first dance as husband and wife.

Congratulations, Karye and Alan! Thank you for letting me into your families for the day.
