Emma’s & Trey’s wedding weekend (in Instagrams!)

Here are some peeks from Emma's wedding via our cell phone cameras!

The night before the wedding we drove out to the cabin. We practiced the ceremony, flipped out over the cute canoes and took a bunch of cell phone photos. After that we had dinner at The Tower Club in Springfield and got to meet tons of Trey's extended family! There were mojitos and margaritas and we had the best time!

  • Hi Elsie,

    The Wedding looked beautiful. I was wondering how you get your instagram photos on your website? It is easy when you take the instagram photo but how do you get your friends? I am running a photo challenge at the moment and I would like to share on my facebook all of the different photos however I can’t figure out a way without taking a screenshot of each photo. I was just wondering if you found a quicker way?

    I’m addicted to your website!

  • gorgeous photos, the bride looked stunning 🙂 thanks for sharing Elsie!

  • Beautiful! That looks wonderful.

    quick question – do you guys have the phone case that elsie has in the rehearsal picture up for sale? i think it’s super, super cute!

  • Always enjoy seeing happy memories being made. Looking at these photos, the happy faces…you just know that they’ll remember that day for the rest of their lives.

  • Seems like it was really beautiful. Can’t wait to see the “real” pics.. but honestly these are pretty great. I wasn’t using Instagram at the time (super late to the party), but I wish I would have been! Having everyone use the same hashtag is really fun.

  • the more I see pictures of Emma’s wedding dress, the more I love it.

    Did she change into another dress for the reception, though? I thought I saw that in some of the pictures….


  • I’m literally still amazed by the dress! So excited about the “real” photos.


  • It looks like such a beautiful day! I’m so happy for them both! You can tell Emma is such a sweet and gentle soul <3
