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 never stops taking my breath away, those tucked away Illinois towns.  The vastness of the beauty and goodness of the food and the greatness of the hospitality.  Alto Pass, IL is no acceptation.  Greg and Sarah invited me to shoot their engagement session in a place that means so much to them.  Sarah is the events coordinator at Von Jakob Winery & Brewery  where the rolling hills of southern Illinois flourish, and the food is worth every bit of the drive.  Fall was in full bloom, colors sweeping the spectrum. Here are some of my favorites from that amazing fall day!Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14 Greg and Sarah Engagement 10-21-14

A Fall wedding in an apple orchard.  Simple, elegant, and really fun!  We were so excited to be joining the family in Troy, Illinois.  What a lovely weekend for a beautiful farm wedding at Mills Apple Orchard.  Wayne and Michelle put together a beautiful event, with most of the genius and work coming from Michelle's mom.  Their friends and family worked tirelessly until the last minute making sure everything was in place.  Blue skies, sunshine, and lots of smiles.Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13 Wayne and Michelle Wedding 10-12-13
 It was a perfect day to get married.  The day was dressed in grey peach with a hint of victorian detail.  Beautiful weather, friends and family gathered.  Hugs, hugs, tears and laughter highlighted the day.   As a beautiful bride approached her waiting groom, both parties tried to hold back their tears.  Brian and Andrea were married at St. John's Church.  Their reception was held at the Studio Inn at St.Albans.  I have rarely seen a couple so touched by the site of each other.  Their wonder and excitement to be getting married is a really precious thing.  It was an honor to celebrate with them and be a witness to the joy of their day.
