Set in the impeccable Laumeire Sculpture Park,  Nina and Orie's elegant wedding was gilded in blue skies for miles and contagious laughter.  Classic details of purple orchards and succulent party favors brought a vibrate, life giving atmosphere and transitioned the outside ceremony to the inside reception full of light and music.  From fist look to first dance Orie and Nina floated through with warmth and grace.  It is an honor and delight to share this St. Louis wedding story today.

Good morning photography lovers!  Today's wedding post is from the end of summer at Mount Pleasant Winery just outside St. Louis.   David and Becca celebrated their marriage in an intimate ceremony, looking out on the fruited plain, under spacious skies.  From top to bottom their event was draped with some of my favorite flowers of 2016, by Style Altar'd.  Best of all, the support and unity of their friends and family.

Zach and Nicole were married in their hometown of Old Monroe.  We were met with warm hugs and hospitality, which come hand in hand with small town Missouri. It was a perfect day with blue skies and blissful temperatures. Nicole's contagious smile and Zach's easy humor, made us feel right at home.  Zach and Nicole's families played a huge part in their wedding day.  The nieces and nephews all dressed in black, white and gold to express the Kate Spade themes of the day.  Between Zach and Nicole they have eight adoring siblings, who filled the day with encouragement and laughter.  It was a beautiful day full of celebration and love. We hope to be invited back to Old Monroe someday to be witness to the heart of what makes the midwest so precious.  Zach_Nicole Weding1 Zach_Nicole Weding34 Zach_Nicole Weding36Zach_Nicole Weding84Zach_Nicole Weding85Zach_Nicole Weding86Zach_Nicole Weding87Zach_Nicole Weding2Zach_Nicole sneekpeek1ing Zach_Nicole sneekpeek4ing Zach_Nicole sneekpeek6ingZach_Nicole Weding4Zach_Nicole Weding6 Zach_Nicole Weding35Zach_Nicole Weding7Zach_Nicole Weding5 Zach_Nicole Weding8 Zach_Nicole Weding10 Zach_Nicole Weding11Zach_Nicole sneekpeek3ing Zach_Nicole Weding12Zach_Nicole Weding13 Zach_Nicole Weding15Zach_Nicole Weding14Zach_Nicole sneekpeek2ingZach_Nicole Weding16Zach_Nicole Weding17Zach_Nicole Weding18Zach_Nicole Weding19Zach_Nicole Weding20Zach_Nicole Weding21Zach_Nicole Weding22Zach_Nicole Weding23Zach_Nicole Weding26Zach_Nicole Weding27Zach_Nicole Weding25Zach_Nicole Weding29Zach_Nicole Weding30Zach_Nicole Weding31Zach_Nicole Weding32Zach_Nicole Weding33
