Bri & Jared had a beautiful, calm wedding day- tucked into a cool space on a hot day. First community church, at 15th & murphy right in the middle of town, is one of Joplin’s most elegant structures. It’s also been through a lot… the stained glass you saw in the first picture of this post is relatively new, since it had to be replaced completely after the Joplin 2011 tornado swept through and pulled the back of the building out [this photo from almost exactly 3 years ago].
I talked with the folks from the church, and they told me how they painstakingly worked with the original makers of the glass in Europe to recreate the beautiful wall. After over 2 years of funding and building, you now can’t tell anything ever happened.
But the church is not the subject of this post…back to the stars of the day, Bri & Jared!! I’ll let the photos do the talking for them. 🙂
Took some shots of the reception decor before the ceremony began….
Love the looks of anticipation…
