Colleen and Guy’s Our Lady of Lourdes and Norwood Hills Country Club wedding was crazy fun.  I’ve been looking forward to this one since I saw down with Colleen and her mom last year to talk about the big day.  She told me the wedding party lineup and knowing the guests and family members that would be there I did some quick math.  This day was going to be amazing and it exceeded all expectations.  Colleen was stunning as always and I have decided that Guy was meant to live in a tux.  The only conflict with this being he is a fireman but days off for sure needs to be in a full tux.

They were married at Our Lady of Lourdes in U City which is one of the most beautiful but intimate churches in St. Louis.  The church has beautiful old wooden doors where their monogram hung to greet their guests.  There were so many elements of the day that honored their loved ones who were there to celebrate with them that day and in spirit.  She carried a charm on her Poppie’s Design bouquet with a photo of her twin sister Mary as she walked down the aisle.  The aisle was lined with little lanterns and candle light.  The ceremony was beautiful. As they left the church they were charged by their adorable little team of flower girls and ring bearers.  We did family photos after the ceremony then headed off to Forest Park before going to Norwood Hills to continue to celebration!

Congrats Colleen and Guy!  I hope you are as happy for the rest of your lives as you were on this day.

xoxo, Susie

This intimate backyard wedding was a dream come true.  Maura and Todd were married by her father in the entry way of her childhood home and they danced the night away in the backyard.  Arriving to the home we were greeted by her father who was perhaps the happiest man to ever invite guests into his home.  Positively smitten with his girls, he beamed the whole day and night.

Maura and Todd met in D.C. where they live despite both being from the Midwest.  The opted for a small intimate gathering at home so they could celebrate their love with the best people around them.  The two got ready in the home but waited for the ceremony to see each other.  Maura waited with her father in her bedroom as their closest family and friends filled the home.  They made their way down the staircase lined with floral garland into the entry foyer where they said their own vows.

The reception in the backyard was magnificent.  Their laughs during the toasts were the best start to a wonderful night.  The head table was the family dining room table. They pulled it outside and added an extra handmade leaf on each end to accommodate the extra guests. There was so much love that went into every part of this backyard wedding. Maura danced the night away in Todd’s arms wearing her amazing Catherine Deane gown that might as well have been made for her alone.  Even the DJ was a close friend who wore a glorious head to toe golden suit for the occasion.  Todd’s family even surprised him with his pinewood derby trophy for his big day.  We were so fortunate to celebrate it with them!

Ellen and Taylor started and ended the beautiful July wedding day at the stunning St. Louis Union Station. The two are avid TCU sports fans and their love story started in Atlanta, Georgia when they were there to watch their Horned Frogs play in the 2014 Peach Bowl. That night Taylor asked Ellen to dance making for an amazing weekend and start to their life together. They traveled between Fort Worth and Dallas until they were finally together in Dallas 7 months later. They chose St. Louis for their wedding as it was where Ellen grew up and it was such a big part of her life. They both wanted to big party for their large family and friends from throughout the country to celebrate with them.

Union Station was the perfect element of history for their big day – a stunning venue made even more incredible by the jaw-dropping light show the put on for the guests prior to announcing the bride and groom. Their welcome bags included a little bit of Texas for all their guests with Bluebonnet seeds and a TCU cookie from McArthur’s to give a nod to their Alma Mater.

Ellen and Taylor worked with Kristin Weis of Kristin Ashley Events to make their planning the event from Dallas easy and stress-free. She is credited with infusing their Southern style and Midwest roots! Congrats Ellen and Taylor!!

Alexa and Christian both started their wedding day at the historic Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis separately making their ways to the gorgeous Graham Chapel on the Washington University campus.   Alexa’s Dad had with him the same penny that her grandfather put in her mother’s shoe on her wedding day – a tradition they carried on for their day.  The ceremony was incredibly romantic with the Landolfi String Quartet playing as the guests entered.  The emotions were already going early on since they exchanged the sweetest notes to each other before walking down the aisle.  They exchanged their vows and practically ran out of the church they were so excited!

The entire wedding party was amazing as we did photos outside on what ended up being one of the hottest days of the year.  We took turns going in and out of the air conditioning every few minutes to keep everyone standing!  It took no time at all to get some amazing photos.  This group not only looked amazing but had everyone cracking up from the first moment we started.  We made a little detour downtown to 360 where the happy couple practiced their dance with the arch behind them.

The reception was a stunning and the Missouri Athletic Club was amazing as always.  The toasts left us all in stitches and photographing the first dance in that ballroom is like watching a little girls dreams come true.  Alexa has been practicing twirling in her dresses since she could twirl and had the perfect dress for the occasion.  We are so lucky to have been able to celebrate with this bunch on this amazing day. Congrats Christian and Alexa!!!!

These two were married twice in one day – first at St. Ambrose on The Hill and again not far away at the chapel inside St. Louis University Hospital. This would typically sounds quite strange but under this particular circumstance it happened to be the sweetest most moving reason why. I received a message the day before thier wedding day from Heather telling me that she would like to add another ceremony into the timeline after their originally scheduled ceremony at St. Ambrose. Her grandfather was recovering from an illness at SLU hospital and Bishop Rice had planned to meet them there to re-enact their ceremony and they would say their vows again so he could be there in person to witness. He lit up at the sight of his granddaughter in her dress. She was magnificent and his smile did not leave his face the whole time we were there.

Photographing these two and their nearest and dearest could not have been more fun. Alex adores her in every way and we couldn’t stop laughing at how eager he was when we told him to pull her close. His only frustration was when we asked them to seperate briefly to do photos of the bridesmaids and groomsmen. They had so much fun together from the moment they were arm in arm at the church to the moment they ran through the Ole Miss colored pom-poms and waved good-bye to all their guests. The happiest days are ahead for these two.

Blessings to you both! xoxo, Susie
