Mr and Mrs Purdy

When Erin orginally contacted me in early September for their October wedding, I thought she might be a little crazy.  Planning a wedding in just two months is, well, crazy!  But, the more I got to know her the more I realized that it was actually smart.  Instead of waiting until the following October and drawing out the planning process they just got it all done.  Besides that, Erin is super laid back.  Probably has something to do with the fact that she grew up in South Dakota.

Erin and Stu picked The Shade Hotel for their wedding.  The hotel is just a few blocks from their house and is beautiful.  It’s a small hotel, but it was fun because all of their out of town guests stayed there and basically filled up the whole hotel.  Erin and her “Cuzins” even did all the flowers!  First, the flowers.  They were gorgeous and I love that Erin took the time to do them herself.  Second, the Cuzins.  I don’t have any cousins.  I always wanted them and was jealous of all of my friends who had them.  I just wish I had cousins like Jaymee and Heather!  The three of them have such an awesome relationship and are so close.  It was fun group of girls to work with!  The guys were fun too.  I even got a groomsmen to slide down a pole at a fire station!  Stu opted to not try it.  I don’t blame him.  It was high!

Thank you Erin and Stu for including me in your wedding day!  Your love for one another is so evident!  It was such an honor to be able to capture it!  Here’s your slideshow!

Erin’s BCBG gown was a steal on Ebay!  $200!

Erin’s father passed away two and a half years ago.  She wore this necklace in memory of him.  It’s his favorite color – Kansas Sate purple.
