Hillary and Derek were married this weekend along with their family, friends and their sweet pup Bruce! This Columbia Missouri Wedding had all the special touches of a heartwarming day in the Mid West! To start the day these two opted on not seeing eachother before the ceremony, so the anticipation was so exciting. Sometimes the best place to get ready is in at the church, and for Hillary we managed to create that beautiful look and feel of a hotel room! They gave each other gifts, both with inside jokes, and we managed after a few held back tears, Hillary and Derek said prayer in a secluded room, blindfolded.
From there the ceremony took off, and in beautiful song and words, these two became Mr. and Mrs. Hinrichs! After their sweet ceremony, we rushed off to portraits at Capen Park and started the session off with Hillary and Derek, giving them a little time to relish in their new marriage! Not only did we get to capture some amazing images, but Bruce their adorable dog, met us at the park for a few portraits and he couldn’t have been more excited!
The reception was an absolute blast, held at Kimball Ballroom! Decked out in their country theme, these two ate and danced the night away with some amazing family and friends! Congratulations Hillary and Derek, we can’t even tell you how amazing it has been to not only get to know you but your family and friends (and Bruce!) as well. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and many more trips out to the farm in Illinois!
