August 8th will go down in memory as being one of the hottest weddings we have ever done here at Artistic Imagery. 105 degree index heat and an outdoor wedding at 5p. Brenda & Ryan planned ahead with gigantic fans, plenty of tents and lots and lots of water. It was a small wedding of mostly family and a handfull of good friends. The ceremony & reception were at Ryan's aunt & uncles' house which was situated on a beautiful plot of land in Peculiar, Missouri. With detours causing the wedding to run late and the bridesmaid's dress being forgotten, Brenda was a little beside herself. But the mother of the groom just reminded her that this was her and Ryan's day. People would wait for them. And everyone did wait and then they celebrated with a garden ceremony, lots of great food, and some rockin' music. For the reception, Brenda & Ryan changed into their "cool-down party clothes" and we got some great sunset shots.
