These guys got married in the same church as Ellen's parents. How cool is that!?!?

The church was a beautiful old church with lots of stone and details. 

Tony and Ellen were such a fun couple! Their friends weren't too bad either. :) They were all so easy going and helpful. We had a blast hitting up various locations and exploring the back allies in St. Louis. 

The reception was at the Neo on Locust Street which is always beautiful. You can't beat the hanging lights and the rooftop! All of the colors and decorations looked amazing! Tony and Ellen's friends showered them with compliments and love throughout the toasts, its alway fun to hear about the bride and groom from their best friends! Fun was had by ALL and the day was absolutely perfect! Congratulations you two!

Amanda got ready at home surrounded by her closest friends. The morning was calm and relaxed and everything fell into place. Her dress was spot on perfect! 

I love the Jewel Box in Forest Park.  The light and color is always beautiful! 

After the ceremony we headed out for wedding party pictures. This group was super fun and the location fit perfectly with Amanda and Mitch's classy style. 

These guys were FUN, even grandma was out on the dance floor! Amanda and Mitch, your day was perfect and and so are you two! Congratulations!

I cannot believe these little guys are getting SO big. It is such a honor to photograph families year after year. This is one of those families and it is so fun seeing them, listening to whats new with them and hearing the new milestones these boys are making! Harrison always has so much to say and Graham has one of the best little smiles. You guys are fun!

Oh man, this boy. First off, he's got the best hair ever AND he had a super time showing off his new sitting skills. :) He's six months old and one special boy. His deep brown eyes were full of thought while he took EVERYTHING in and I'm pretty sure his parents couldn't be more in love with him. He's pretty perfect.

When a family has school aged kids sometimes it can take some time to get them to open up and actually be them. You know, some crazy lady with a camera doesn't always make for the most comfortable relaxing environment. BUT, these guys were so fun. Max and I were shoe twins, since I had red shoes on too and Ava was a little ball of energy, who I had a blast hanging out with. I'm not sure who entertained who more, these two were full of tricks and laughs!

This had to be the absolute hottest day of the year. It was insane. We were ALL so thankful that the wedding was inside Union Station. It was BEAUTIFUL. The building, the lights AND the people. So. Much. Fun. The day was relaxed and everyone enjoyed it. I'm also pretty sure this was one of the best receptions ever. Way to enjoy every last second of your wedding day! Congratulations you two!

Ah man, these guys are cuties! 18 months is one of my favorite ages. There is so much personality and so much independence present in this age. I'm pretty sure Emmett couldn't have been more proud of himself. He threw rocks like a champ, read books and ran as fast as his little legs could carry him. Well done little man. You are killing this 18 month thing. :)

I'm pretty sure these pictures can speak for themselves, but let me just say that first look was a killer. Killer emotion, killer anticipation and some killer faces. You know that old saying, "actions speak louder then words" well here you go. No words needed.

This out door ceremony was beautiful. Their vows were full of love and promise and their family and friends held back tears. 

Alycia was a poised beauty and Nick was a handsome entertainer. He had me laughing all day. I love how cool the guys look in the floral ties and the girls seriously rocked their flowy blush dresses.

This couple couldn't have been a better team. They were supported by some stellar friends and family and they had so much fun together! Oh, and one little side note: Nick has some outstanding dance moves. ;) Congratulations you two! May continue to dance and laugh all the days of your lives.

This July wedding was SO pretty. Everything took place at Glen Echo Country Club. I have never heard of this country club and had no idea what to expect. It turns out it hosted the 1904 olympic golf championships and had some really cool stuff around. The grounds and the building were beautiful, and the staff were all so helpful. 

The day was so hot so we were all thankful we got to drive the golf carts around and find some shady spots for pictures. The wedding party had the best attitudes EVER and Jeff and Melissa were such troopers. 

The ceremony took place by a lake on the golf course under two ginormous trees. The setting was perfect as Jeff's sister married them.  After the ceremony we took advantage of some beautiful light and then headed off to enjoy the reception AND some amazing air conditioning. :) The day was perfect in every way. Congratulations Melissa and Jeff!

I love Pere Marquette, and Annie and Dan are pretty super cool too! :) The outdoor location paired with their fresh bright colors was beautiful. The ceremony took place outdoors and the reception was inside the main lodge. I'm pretty sure I have never seen so many people dance consistantly at a wedding in all my life. This wedding was a blast and Annie and Dan make an amazing team. Congratulations you two!

This little guy is in for some excitement! He's got two old brothers to show him the ropes. :) He was perfect in every way and even cracked a few smiles. Welcome to this world little guy!

It's always fun shooting somewhere I haven't been before. I've got to think quickly and get a little creative. This wedding and reception took place at Sqwires, a cute little restaurant close to Lafayette Square park. The location provided the perfect balance of urban and nature.  Veronica opted for a tea length dress which was SO cute AND it allowed her to move around for pictures. She was comfortable and so cute. The rain teased us a little during pictures so we got to use my super cute umbrellas too! The day was a perfect balance and everything went so smooth. Congratulations you two! Perfect day for a perfect couple!

What a gang! I love this family! Let's be real, three kids, especially with two boys that are ages two and one is not easy. I'd be lying big time if I said it was BUT it was fun and we NAILED it! Look at those faces! Right?!?! And look at this stage in life, SO HARD; these parents are super stars! For real. I can deal with a little chaos, ACTUALLY, I can deal with a whole lot of chaos. :) Don't let crazy kids and crazy stages stop you from getting killer pictures like these. You don't want to forget this time, well, maybe you do, but you also want to be able to show your kids what you endured. ;)

Ryan and Laura got married in the Forest Park, World's Fair Pavillion. It was beautiful and overlooked the whole park. It had an elegant but relaxed feel.

We ventured around the park for some pictures and also visited a near by seminary. What's more classic and elegant then huge stone buildings with arched doors and beautiful halls. SO pretty!
