Spenser & Chrissy Get Married

Saturday, April 23, 2011
Some of you have seen our entry in the Professional Photographer Magazine cover contest.  (http://www.ppmag.com/cover-contest-2011/vote/10829/) Some of you have even voted.  It was of this awesome couple, Spenser & Chrissy, during their engagement session when they covered each other in finger paint.  So fun!

A couple weekends ago, they tied the knot.  It has been a pleasure getting to know this couple who live in Lincoln, IL as they attend school.  The church where they were married is where Spenser is the worship leader, so it was special to see them in their element.  They had so many special moments, so it was hard to narrow down, but here are some of my favorite images from the day.

I love things with a story.  These pearls were passed down to her, one for each year of her life, given to her on her 21st birthday.

 First moments seeing dad on her wedding day...

 When Chrissy said she was marrying the "best man..."  What a hilarious moment!

 We almost got stuck at this neat location in downtown Lincoln, when the railroad workers warned us that the RR construction cars were on the way down the track, and "there's no telling how long that'll take, if you've got somewhere to be." You know, like a reception or something?


 these two guys are up to no good.
 The BEST conga line I've ever seen. Look at all these faces. Cracks me up.
Congrats, Chrissy & Spenser Carrel!
