Lauren and Evan :: Married at the Missouri History Museum at Forest Park

Lauren and Evan’s beautiful early summer wedding at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park was so full of joy and laughter and love! Many congrats to the happy couple!

Before the ceremony began, Lauren wrote a sweet little note and had her maid of honor pass it to her groom as she walked down the aisle.

This is just the cutest. Lauren is an elementary school teacher and one of the designs on her cookies was a cute little drawing made by one of her students. Just adorable.

Patrick and Emily :: Married at the Forest Park Visitor’s Center

At the end of the day, my second shooter and I looked at each other and said, “This didn’t even feel like work.” Emily and Patrick were SO lovely to work with and they truly do adore each other. Patrick spent much of the day doting on his new bride, and I’m so very happy for the both of them!

Emily and Jamie :: Westwood Country Club Wedding

Oh where to even begin? I knew right from our first conversation that Emily and Jamie’s wedding would be fantastic, but I had no idea just what a beautiful day I was about to photograph. Her dress, the geometric details designed to perfection in coordination with the amazing Jenny and her team from Before I Do, and gosh that beautiful ceremony with chocolates, ombre roses and Emily’s grandmother’s veil all set perfectly against the setting spring sun… I don’t want to give it all away, but just take a look for yourself.  It’s the stuff dreams are made of.
