I love getting to celebrate with all of my amazing couples on their wedding day - there are so many beautiful, hilarious, emotional, & intimate moments all wrapped up in that one day & I love being able to bottle them all up in their wedding photos that they will cherish forever!
I've known Lauren for a long time now (she's my best friend's sister-in-law - remember their Engagement Session?) & when she asked me to capture her & Jeff's big day I was giddy! I knew it would be beautiful - but the amount of detail & thought that went into making their day extra special & fit just for them was more than I imagined, & I loved every minute of it!
Of course she had to get rose gold shoes to go with her rose gold rings.
& what are best friends for if not to share in the joy of one of the most important days of your life by jumping on the bed?!
Jeff, being a good sport & standing where I asked, put his tie on (perfectly, I might add) without a mirror...this was impressive to me!
Since Jeff & Lauren met at the Chase Park Plaza that's where they wanted to get ready & share their first look...just the two of them excitedly starting the first day of the rest of their lives together...it was perfect!
How gorgeous is this massive wedding party?!
I love that we were able to do all of their wedding party photos in a part of town that was special to Jeff & Lauren...& I love how perfect Lafayette Park fit in with the vibe of their wedding too...meant to be.
Look at all of these sweet, personal details! Lauren put a lot of time into planning all of this out & creating the details she wanted & it all came together perfectly! & Her dad actually made the birch candle holders!
This was my first time working at Palladium St. Louis & it was such a cool venue! It had all kinds of quirks & beautiful features...Everyone was really nice & easy to work with...& the food was amazing too! Bonus!
Yes, that's a bacon maple cupcake.
Can't you just tell how great these two are together? Every time I look at their images it makes me so happy they found each other!
Congratulations again Jeff & Lauren!
Thank you so much for inviting me to share in this perfectly beautiful day - here's to many more equally delightful memories still to come!
