I’m going to let you in on a little secret… this is not the first time Cortlain and Courtney have been married. This is actually both of their second times…getting married to each other!
The first ceremony was an intimate one in the Viehman family living room over a year ago. This time, it was to celebrate their marriage and the life they’ve built together with all of their family and friends. Take a look below at all of the photos by SMB Photography capturing their special day, that gorgeous dress, and a little cupcake thievery.
We started out the day as always, with hair & makeup, mimosas, and excited anticipation.
I have to hand it to these groomsmen on taking the initiative to get ready and look their best!
Here in Missouri, we were in the middle of a what seemed like never-ending rainy days. It had been ten days of on and off storms and, as it would happen, there were torrential downpours all morning and afternoon. The bride and groom and their bridal party were so flexible and Steven and Megan still got beautiful shots even though outdoor photography was not possible.
Cortlain & Courtney shared a sweet first look. Another inside scoop: all the bridesmaids and mother’s were sneaking a peek from behind some pipe and drapes. No one can resist a good first look!
Now it was time for the ceremony, but not before Courtney and her sister snuck a cupcake, just like when they were growing up.
While their guests were enjoying Cocktail Hour, Cortlain, Courtney, and their bridal party took to the roof for pictures. The rain let up just in time and the St. Louis skyline was the perfect backdrop for group and couple photos.
Neo is always a great venue, a perfect empty space to create your own look and style. Courtney designed the centerpieces herself and the industrial lights are always hanging!
For all the hockey fans out there, this cake topper and cupcake stands are for you! The cupcake stands were made by the bride’s brother and had both the Blues and Bruins (no hard feelings) decals on them. The cake topper tied it all together, puck and all.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Waugh! I hope you both experience endless happiness and blessings together!
