If I only had one word to describe this wedding I’d have to say classic. Every single detail was classy and beautiful. It fit this couple perfectly. The day started at the Magnolia Hotel in downtown St. Louis. All the staff were super helpful which helped the day run smoothly.

The ceremony took place at a beautiful church a few miles away. Diane and Matt chose to not see each other before the ceremony so everyone could hardly wait for Diane to make her appearance. The looks her and her Dad gave each other were priceless as they entered the church and Matt tried to patiently wait for her to make it down the long aisle.

After the ceremony we did pictures right outside of the Magnolia Hotel. The wedding parties’ colors looked AMAZING with the teal doors and Diane surprised Matt with a classic car for their transportation for the day. It couldn’t have looked more magazine worthy parked in front of the hotel. SO CLASSIC.

The evening ended at the Magnolia Hotel and even had a surprise guest arrive. Diane was so surprised when her favorite singer, Celine Dion arrived, she couldn’t help but put on a little performance with her! 😜 The reception was a blast and it was clear that Diane and Matt are so so loved by all their family and friends. It was a night to remember! Congratulations you two!

During Jeff's spring break we were able to fit in an engagement session AND they couldn't have gotten a prettier day! I love finally meeting and getting to know couples a little bit before their wedding day. I mean, who wants a stranger in their face all day. :) Well, these to were so fun and they were so fun together. I can't wait for their June wedding! OH, and Jeff, that first picture up on the top left is just for you! 😉 Congratulations you two, I'll see you in June!

We had planned on the session being around the Art museum but a big event had us changes plans. These two were super flexible and rolled with the changes. . .and it turned out perfect! Congratulations you two! Can't wait for your September wedding!

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!
