Amanda & Frank choose the Lou over the Big Apple…for their wedding

First off, I find it incredibly odd that the grooms in two weddings in a row had the same last name!!! Murray.  One Murray wedding to the next. 🙂

But THIS Murray wedding has a background….I have known Amanda, the boisterous & beautiful bride, since 2002. We met back in the carefree days and late nights while working at Ruby Tuesday’s in Columbia, Mo.  She and I (and her adorable dog, Oreo) were housemates in 2004/5. It was an interesting time–both of us, being recent graduates, had been starting in the real world. We had both watched the other go through our fair share of misses when it came to the other gender. 
Later on that year, she took a leap of faith and cut loose from the midMo chains…she was New York City- bound. She never came back…and I think it had something to do with Frank. And man, am I glad to know she’s ended up with such a sweetheart. They are crazy Irish kids together…and they know how to have a good time…and they know how to make others have a good time, too. So that was essentially what I was expecting with their wedding two weekends ago. And I got just that.
Rebecca Allen  was my assistant for the day. And that girl has mad skills… 😉 
They began and ended their day at Hilton at the Ballpark. (Might I add here that it was a rainy, gloomy day, but Amanda is so chill and the perfect NONbridezilla…that it relaxed even ME!)

Amanda had the girls get brooches to accentuate their dresses…me thinks that was a killer idea! It also was a killer idea to put on shoes. I mean, what fun would it have been to traipse around the city barefoot!!??

I’m so glad I caught this kiss, because they didn’t kiss before they went down the aisle as man & wife!!! Sometimes, that part is skipped in ceremonies. BUT YAY…a kiss pic still!

We headed to the arch since it was RIGHT THERE…! I’ve never shot at the arch before. Wait…I’ve never even been to the arch! YEah, I know… don’t judge. We were sooo lucky that it stopped raining!!!

And then we were off…

DarbiGPhotography-kansas city st louis wedding photographer-Amanda-Frank-4-109

to….. THE BUSCH STADIUM. They had rented it out for 30 minutes for some portraits. SO AWESOME. IT’s very overwhelming to fit in all the crazy ideas into 30 minutes…but we did what we could.
DO THE WAVE!!!
THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE AN ANIMATION. SOMETIMES IT DOESN’T WORK…NOT SURE WHY!!!

Some of these boys had accents…from the Bronx or from Ireland. I enjoyed that very much. 😉
