Becca + Phil wedding {by liz}

Looking at this wedding day makes me smile! It was such a wonderful day. Beautiful weather, happy people and a perfectly relaxed non-packed schedule. Not once all day did I feel like I was stressed out about getting quick shots or nearly shaking from adrenaline as I rushed from place to place to make sure nothing was missed. These two did it right. They didn’t try to fit too much in one perfect day, which in turn made the day perfect! And I think everyone could feel it. Of course it never hurts that the wonderful Alix-Ann from Simcha’s Events dotted all i’s and crossed all t’s so that the families could just enjoy the day and celebrate (one of the big perks of hiring a fantastic planner!) I also owe a big thanks to the fabulous Michelle Ross from Under Grace Photography for shooting with me all day.  She never ceases to amaze me with her talents.  Let’s dig into this beautiful couple shall we?!

Not a shabby set of shiny things…

The lovely party.  My apologies to the Four Seasons for blocking their main entrance for a few minutes, but it’s so pretty there!

The Terrace at the Four Seasons St. Louis has one of the best views in the city.  Hands down.
