Stay tuned readers, this gorgeous baby on the way wedding captured by Rodeo & Co. Photography has lots to offer and of course you can see all of it in the full gallery here.
From the Bride:
With a baby on the way at the time, we were extraordinarily careful with our budget. I was very lucky in that i am friends and colleagues with many of the vendors we used, so we were able to barter where we could, and many of them gave us a huge break. I'd totally recommend bartering services when you can - totally worth it!

I think if we had tried to stick to the common traditions that are still hanging on out there, then perhaps we would have had some regrets and wishes that we wished we had changed something. But we weren't afraid to cut those ties and make our wedding truly our own; we had a first look to take advantage of the light during the shorter fall days, and instead of walking down the aisle to where Mike was waiting for the ceremony, Mike came down the aisle to meet me at the door, and then we walked in together.
We made our daughter Clara an important part of our celebration by having the wedding while I was pregnant with her. Though I was nervous about some of them initially, our unorthodox choices turned out to be some of my favorite parts of the day.
Baby Gender Reveal:
And now that we have kept you waiting here it is, one of the cutest ways to reveal the gender of your baby we have ever seen! Kate and Mikes Cake was a complete surprise to them, so when they cut into it the color revealed whether they were having a boy or a girl. Surprise its a strawberry cake with champagne buttercream filling!
