An extra special post from me today as this is my brother and sister-in-law! If you know my family or have been following my photography for awhile, you probably already know that my brother has been serving in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia for the past three years. While there, he met and fell in love with the beautiful Bety! On a giant leap of love and faith, she left everything she knew behind in Ethiopia to come to America. I truly cannot imagine being so far away from family, in an entirely new place, but we are so happy she is here. She is the sweetest soul and the perfect addition to our family. On the eve of New Years Eve, Nick and Bety headed to the courthouse for a sweet and simple wedding ceremony (with our small family of 7 in tow!). After the ceremony, we all went out to lunch and then I took the two of them to the gorgeous Jewel Box in Forest Park for some quick portraits! It was the perfect day.
