Two of our absolute favorite spots to shoot weddings in downtown St. Louis, Union Station and Peabody Opera House.  Both locations hold so much classic beauty and charm of old world St. Louis.  Two of my favorite people to have as wedding clients, Matt and Melissa.  Their vision for the wedding day fit perfectly with the Beautiful Mess Photography style.  The experience was warm with elegance and fun.   Matt and Melissa were the most gracious of hosts, as people from all chapters of life came to celebrate their marriage.  See some of our favorite moments from their wedding story.

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.

I am excited to share Rachel and Troy's wedding at mysterious Lemp Mansion.  From the red, white and blue flowers, to the empty table set for POW's and fallen soldiers, the theme was honor and respect for those who serve to protect out country.  Both Rachel and Troy serve in our U.S. military and for that we are extremely grateful.  Here are some of our favorite photos from the day. beautiful-mess-photo_0362 beautiful-mess-photo_0363 beautiful-mess-photo_0364beautiful-mess-photo_0371 beautiful-mess-photo_0374beautiful-mess-photo_0366 beautiful-mess-photo_0375beautiful-mess-photo_0365beautiful-mess-photo_0369beautiful-mess-photo_0370beautiful-mess-photo_0373beautiful-mess-photo_0376beautiful-mess-photo_0379 beautiful-mess-photo_0377beautiful-mess-photo_0380beautiful-mess-photo_0383 beautiful-mess-photo_0384 beautiful-mess-photo_0385beautiful-mess-photo_0387 beautiful-mess-photo_0386beautiful-mess-photo_0394beautiful-mess-photo_0388 beautiful-mess-photo_0392beautiful-mess-photo_0395beautiful-mess-photo_0396
