June 3rd Wedding

It has officially cooled off here in St. Louis! You know what that means…. romantic fall colors, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, cozy sweaters. Best of all? It means the holidays are right around the corner. Which brings me to the inspiration behind today’s blog post.

I’d like to start off by referencing Season 2 Episode 10 of The Office, a.k.a., the Christmas Party Episode. For those who are unaware, I’ll make it quick. In this episode quirky paper salesman Jim expresses his adoration for secretary Pam by buying her a simple blue teapot for their office holiday party. Not only has she had her eye on the kettle, but he has it filled with silly inside joke-themed memoriabilia from their friendship together. Anyone who knows the show knows that in this episode one of TV’s favorite couples is formed and so begins a beautiful love story. In short, Jim and Pam are absolutely made for each other.

Likewise, I present to you Chris and Victoria. Fun, caring, passionate people who are absolutely made for each other. Though this wedding was indeed in the summer, I trust you’ll still get the reference. Ashley Fisher creates yet another masterpiece by capturing the essence of this day.

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… you’ll be in awe at the fireworks display. You’ll feel the warmness of love radiating through the power of prayer. You’ll start up Netflix and wish you had some cake (Mizzou fans…this is your warning)

Ladies and Gentlemen…. June 3rd, 2018.

June 29th Wedding

We could not have picked a better summer day for Shawn and Kelsey's wedding! Where do we start? The two piece gown? The doughnut wall? The cameo by their dog? Let's talk about it all!!

Kelsey's dress was nothing short of beautiful. We loved the uniqueness of the two pieces, and it looked like one when she put it on! Feminine, delicate, modern and traditional, it had a bit of everything.

We can't decide which part is sweeter---the doughnut wall with the dessert table or Kelsey and Shawn's pup getting an invite to shower the couple with congratulatory kisses after the ceremony. In the end, the sweetness of the whole day blew us away!

April 13th Wedding

There's something about soft blues, grays, and pinks that add a touch of elegance to spring weddings. Travis and Michelle were simply stunning and had an effortless beauty about them on their big day earlier this year. Their classically gorgeous style was apparent not only in Michelle's gown, the floral arrangements and decor, but also in the ambiance of the night.

After their ceremony, they arrived to Silver Oaks in style--via a trolley! It was the neatest thing seeing a trolley pulling up to the Chateau while transporting their wedding party. From the arrival to the exit (and everything in between) everyone was all smiles all night.

Elopement Styled Shoot!

It only seems fitting that some of our very favorite photos of 2017 wouldn't be from a wedding at all - but from an elopement!

Our team has become a little obsessed (okay, a lot obsessed) with intimate ceremonies ever since we hosted our first elopement couple back in 2016. Now, after this picture-perfect styled shoot with The Lovely Lens, we are hopelessly head over heels! Lots of incredible vendors made this day possible (check out the full list below!), but for now, feast your eyes upon these gorgeous lovebirds and some swoon worthy details.
