I am totally smitten with Sam and Liz's beautiful St. Louis wedding!  The fine details and elegant style were full of the grace and warmth they both carry.  The celebrations were playful and full of laughter all day.  Here are some of my favorites from their celebration story.

It was an honor to meet Timothy and Jin on their cross country, road trip.  One of the stops on their summer adventure was St. Louis.  They are getting married at home, in China later this year.  Here are some of the highlights from their engagement shoot.Beautiful Mess Photo_0133 Beautiful Mess Photo_0134 Beautiful Mess Photo_0135 Beautiful Mess Photo_0136 Beautiful Mess Photo_0137 Beautiful Mess Photo_0139 Beautiful Mess Photo_0155 Beautiful Mess Photo_0157 Beautiful Mess Photo_0158 Beautiful Mess Photo_0160Beautiful Mess Photo_0164Beautiful Mess Photo_0139 Beautiful Mess Photo_0147 Beautiful Mess Photo_0148 Beautiful Mess Photo_0149Beautiful Mess Photo_0153Beautiful Mess Photo_0152
Caleb and Kelly were amazing to work with from the start. The best way to describe them is  to say they are warm, easy going, and adoring of their families.   Their wedding day was studded in beautiful, classic details at every turn.  From blush and silver details all the way to the cigar bar at the end of the evening.  As always,  Poppies Design Studio did an immaculate job with the flowers, invitations and wedding programs.  The nieces and nephews played a big role in the day and filled the day with fun and joy.  The reception was held in The Westin St. Louis, with cake and deserts by Sarah's Cake Shop and music family a person family friend, Theo Peoples.  It has been a blissful honor to be a part of Caleb and Kelly's wedding story. We want to thank our friends Liz and Joel for referring us for this wedding.  Referring us to your friends and family is the best way to say thank you and it is the highest compliment we could ever receive. Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog5a Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog8 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog9 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog10Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog1 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog2 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog3aCaleb_Kelly Wedding Blog11 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog12 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog13 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog14a Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog17 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog18 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog19 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog20 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog21 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog22 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog26 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog27 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog28a Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog29 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog31 copya Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog33 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog34 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog35 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog36 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog37 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog39 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog40 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog41 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog42 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog49aCaleb_Kelly Wedding Blog43 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog44 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog45 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog50 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog51 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog52a Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog54 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog55 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog56 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog61aCaleb_Kelly Wedding Blog58 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog62 Caleb_Kelly Wedding Blog63

Between David's humble heart, and Laura's contagious smile, this wedding day was exploding with beautiful moments of authenticity and laughter.  We were honored to work with David and Laura.  They planned and executed a classic St. Louis church wedding, followed by carefree and fun reception at Tapawingo National Golf Club.  The night comprised of photo booth antics and dancing and finished with fireworks.  It was a perfect day and glowing night.  I'm so thankful to be able to share in their wedding story.
