Adam and Erin | Romantic Silver Oaks Chateau Wedding in Missouri

I’m so glad that my first experience at the beautiful Silver Oaks Chateau was with Adam and Erin. I can’t say enough how perfect this place was for them. They have quite a love story – having spent the majority of their relationship long distance. I can’t imagine what a challenge that must have been, but they stood by each other and got through it. As Erin put it, “It was a fierce and instant “knowing” that this was really something to explore and holdView full post »

Marc and Bridget | A Hip Wedding at the Boo Cat Club in St. Louis

The day started out at the lovely Cheshire Inn and then headed to Forest Park for some portraits. The ceremony and reception took place at one of St. Louis’s newest wedding venues Boo Cat Club. Such a hip, unique spot with so much personality! The events took place in 3 separate rooms – the ballroom, the catacombs, and the theatre. It was an awesome day.

Katie and Kevin | Colorful Spring Wedding at Noboleis Vineyards in Missouri

When you meet someone and it feels like you’ve known them forever.. that’s how it felt with Katie. She’s one of the nicest humans I’ve ever met which explains why she had so many bridesmaids – who wouldn’t love her? Kevin is equally adorable and together they are magic. Their wedding was a memorable one. Not just because of the cute ring bearers and flower girls, or their pup who was included in the ceremony and wore a doggie tux, or the insanely awesomeView full post »

Ghayas and Megan | Beautiful Wedding at Sheldon Concert Hall

Reasons why I love this wedding: Just look at these two. They are adorable. And they are best friends. When Megan was walking down the steps toward Gus for the first look he said, “Is that her? Yeah that’s her. I can hear her laughing.” Ahh so sweet. Megan wore her mother’s wedding dress – and it was absolutely perfect! The church they chose – St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church – was jaw dropping gorgeous. It was a traditional Greek Orthodox weddingView full post »

What could possibly be more awesome than surprising your guests at your own wedding?! Justin and Kate let everything think they were just coming for an engagement party at Kate’s parents’ elderberry farm in Missouri. But they were actually coming to watch them get married! I loved the looks on some people’s faces as they walked up and saw the sign! Kate greeted everyone in an adorable Modcloth dress and then once all the guests arrived, she changed into her gorgeous gown andView full post »

Jeff and Anna.. your wedding was so beautiful. Some of my favorite things: Anna’s halter gown.. probably my most favorite wedding dress I’ve seen yet.

Jeff’s brother’s speech which basically put all other best man speeches to shame. Their adorable grandparents who lit up theView full post »

When they met at the altar, they giggled and smiled and it was easy to see how crazy in love they were. Sarah and Alex treasure each other, and respect one another, and compliment each other so well. They met at Borders and had an immediate emotional connection. She loved his green eyes. They both love adventure. And so they became a couple.

Russell and Molly | Heartfelt Rustic Wedding at Boone Monument Village

As soon as I read the email from Russell and Molly, I knew they were special. An intimate wedding, at Boone Monument Village, with their ceremony inside a 1-room schoolhouse from the 1800s. Sign me up. It wasn’t just the details, it was the passion with which they described it and their relationship. When I met them on their rainy wedding day, it was like I’d known them for years. They expressed their love without hesitation. Every time they looked at one another, something changedView full post »

Aaron and Melissa | Urban Industrial St. Louis Wedding at Moulin

Aaron and Melissa threw quite the party to celebrate a decade of being together. Their style shined through every moment of the day at Moulin Events, a hip urban spot in St. Louis, Missouri, very close to the historic Lafayette Square. The venue itself had so many great spots to take pictures including a rooftop with a great view of downtown. I loved the moodiness of the lighting inside, with the exposed brick and high ceilings. It was a pretty awesome day. Save SaveView full post »
