We shot Bridget and Jonah's summer wedding just outside St. Louisa at Willoughby Heritage Farms.  The couples wedding day vision was carried out by the most talented and creative Allissa Reimer.  Allissa is owner of one of St. Louis' top event planners, Style Altar'd.  Her flower arrangements set off the outdoor elegance perfectly. Her team turned the barn into a candlelit and colorful haven.   Allissa even officiated the ceremony.  Bridget was the image of vintage chic with her low cut back dress, classic updo and birdcage veil.  Jonah mastered his details with with a white linen suit, frosted cerulean bowtie, and his JORD watch.  The bridesmaids carried balloons instead of bouquets and the the newlyweds sent their promises into the sky after the vows were said. The day was complete with a old fashioned barn dance with hugs and laughter that truly celebrated the making of this gorgeous couple. beautiful-mess-photo_0212beautiful-mess-photo_0213beautiful-mess-photo_0214beautiful-mess-photo_0216 beautiful-mess-photo_0217beautiful-mess-photo_0218 beautiful-mess-photo_0219beautiful-mess-photo_0222beautiful-mess-photo_0223beautiful-mess-photo_0225 beautiful-mess-photo_0226 beautiful-mess-photo_0228beautiful-mess-photo_0227 beautiful-mess-photo_0229 beautiful-mess-photo_0230beautiful-mess-photo_0232 beautiful-mess-photo_0233beautiful-mess-photo_0252beautiful-mess-photo_0246 beautiful-mess-photo_0234 beautiful-mess-photo_0235 beautiful-mess-photo_0236 beautiful-mess-photo_0237beautiful-mess-photo_0238 beautiful-mess-photo_0242beautiful-mess-photo_0244 beautiful-mess-photo_0245beautiful-mess-photo_0247beautiful-mess-photo_0249 beautiful-mess-photo_0250beautiful-mess-photo_0256 beautiful-mess-photo_0257 beautiful-mess-photo_0258 beautiful-mess-photo_0259 beautiful-mess-photo_0260beautiful-mess-photo_0248 beautiful-mess-photo_0255beautiful-mess-photo_0261 beautiful-mess-photo_0262beautiful-mess-photo_0265 beautiful-mess-photo_0266

Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013A couple of Saturdays ago we traveled to the charming and hospitable town of Hillsboro, IL.  A town made of wide open spaces, high school sweethearts and everyone knows everyone.  We were met with hugs all around as if we had been part of the family all along.  They called for rain all day, but by the time the guest arrived we had a beautiful day, even a little sunshine. The only waterworks were from the groom as he saw his elegant bride walking toward him down the aisle.  After the ceremony, we headed out to the family farm to take photos in some of God's most beautiful country.  After a night full of laughter, toasts and dancing, it was hard to pull ourselves away to head back the city.   Here are some of our favorite shots.Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013   Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013 Michael and Lauren Wedding 06012013

Here is a sneak peek for Justin and Mackenzie's Wedding at The Chase!
Jarod in neuro + Lauren in ENT = real life Grey's Anatomy couple.  Both surgical residents in St. Louis, they carved time to let me capture a few moments to celebrate their engagement.   Even though we've been a St. Louis wedding photographer for almost seven years now, I am still finding little, untouched corners right in the city. We shoot with natural light whenever possible, so when we found a floral field, layered in sunshine, late one afternoon, I knew it would be a perfect place for Lauren's Anthropologie details.  Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.
