One of my favorite weddings from last season was Teira and Michael’s wedding. It was one of those weddings where all the right components came together to make for a fantastic day. All the details were so well thought out, too. All of the bride and groom prep took place in the luxurious Vandivort Hotel in downtown Springfield, Missouri. And the ceremony and reception were hosted at the historic Gilloiz Theatre just a couple of blocks away. Teira and Michael love the arts, and broke some wedding traditions by including some unique touches. One of my favorites was the interpretive dance performed during the ceremony by one of Teira’s incredibly talented friends (seriously, scroll down for the photos). It paired so well with the theater venue and added a very engaging aspect to the ceremony. There were also powerful readings and songs performed by some other gifted friends of the bride and groom. Anybody present could feel the momentum of the day as these two united in marriage. Below are way too many photos (it’s hard to choose when they are all your favorites!) of this gorgeous bride and groom. Their love for each other and their friends was highly evident.
