Archive for 'Summer Wedding'

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.

We had the pleasure of shooting Nathan and Dana's St. Louis wedding at the beautiful Studio Inn at St. Albans. They picked their location because they both love and are inspired by the outdoors.  Dana chose pool and coral colors to represent the bright and exuberant nature of the day.  With blue skies overhead, they were married overlooking one of St. Albans fantastic most views.  It was the perfect tent reception with dancing and laughter under the rose colored lights.  Music was provided by A Rockin DJ Jimmy Hussey  Flowers by Wildflowers, and cake by The Cakery.  Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14 Nathan and Dana Wedding 05-10-14
Blake and Sarah held a summer wedding with the ceremony at Memorial Presbyterian Church and the reception at Lemp's Grand Hall.  The decor could be described as shabby chic with traces from the Gadsby era.  Cap sleeves, lace umbrellas, wild flowers all trimmed this blissful event.Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13 Blake and Sarah Wedding 05-19-13

Classic, exquisite, luxury.  These are a few words that come to mind for Chad and Heather's wedding.  A wedding built for photographing.  Grandmothers vintage pin made hair piece.  Lace and tulips.  Satin, and ivory.  All the bridesmaids in vintage colored dresses.  Choice St. Louis architecture.  Warm wood, among ancient stone.  The greatest warmth was from this beautiful couple.  They were so thankful and welcoming to everyone though out the day.  So many smiles and such genuine emotion and gladness in the way they embrace their friends and family.  Heather even bought gifts for her venders.  I am now the proud owner of a coffee mug that looks like a type L, Cannon lens and every time I use it, I think fondly of Chad and Heather and their fantastic wedding day.
