Can I tell you how much I love that jewel tones are back for fall weddings? Eric and Katie designed a gorgeous wedding and brought in some of our favorite friendors to make it all happen. Flowers and Weeds put together the most amazing bouquets and and table arrangements, and 9th Street Abbey was on the their game with making the whole day seamless and beautiful.
One of my favorite discoveries, was the Soulard Steelyard Apartments. Fashioned from its previous industrial roots, it is a beautifully rehabbed old steel factory. It made the perfect backdrop for Katie and the bridal party to getting ready.
Katie has a first look with Eric and then with their 1 year old son, who killed it in his little matching suit! (See photo below.) He stayed near mom and dad all night, keeping up with everyone on the dance floor.
I think the most cherished moment, beyond man holes and industrial treasures, was durning the father-daughter dance, when Eric came over to hug Katie’s mom. The two shared a laugh and some happy tears as they watch Katie dance with her dad.
Funny story… I fell down an open man hole, hiding under a bush while shooting family pictures in front of the Abbey. This is why we ALWAYS carry back up gear from camera’s to lenses to flashes. The camera was fine, but the lens was broken. No problem though, I just picked up a new one and kept shooting.
