Jeff and Emily :: Married at Silver Oaks Chateau

Oh heavens.  This is a good one. Emily’s design style is effortlessly chic.  And I knew her wedding would just as stylish as she is.  That dress.  Those shoes. And the venue.  Sheesh.  What a dream! Silver Oaks Chateau is simply divine, and not only is it a stunning facility, but it took so much stress out of the day because every place we turned was more beautiful than the last, so there was no need to leave! I adore this place. And obviously, I adore Emily’s style. Effortlessly chic.  Did I already say that? Yes? Well, it’s my blog and I’ll gush about my bride’s as much as I like.

Kate and Jordan :: Married in St. Louis at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park

These shoes, those invitations, that veil, and the sweetest sight of a groom seeing his bride for the first time. It’s almost too much pretty to handle.

Jordan and Kate celebrated their marriage at the History Museum in Forest Park, and if you look closely, you’ll see that Kate’s very talented father cleverly designed their invitations as the prettiest of map of Forest Park, complete with all the landmarks to scale.  It’s so subtle and smart.

And those shoes!  Oh the shoes. Kate custom designed those herself.

It appears creativity runs in this family.

Megan and Ryan :: Married

This Megan, she could give lessons in what it means to have a really enjoyable, stress-free day.  She was so well-prepared and enlisted the most organized and creative of planners, and she spent the day ENJOYING herself, rather than stressing about details.  She was quite the bride, if you ask me ;).
