Beautiful. I realize I over use that word but that’s all I’ve got to say about this wedding. Ok maybe not ALL I have to say since I tend to be overly wordy and chatty all the time. Laura and Peter met at Hanneke’s Grocery Store during lunch and talked for the first time over a bag of Oreo Cookies that Laura offered to share. That could be the cutest “how I met my spouse” story ever. So of course we had to swing by there for a few photos! It was an evening ceremony so we didn’t have much time or light to work with but we got a few before the ceremony and a couple after for about 5 minutes after before the sun left the sky for good. And we did it all in the church parking lot but you would never know! The reception was at Oliva on the Hill – one of my favorite St. Louis reception spots – and it was a beautiful November evening so they had guests outside for cocktail hour with the lights up and the fire pit going strong. The perfect brisk fall night! The flowers may be the most beautiful fall bouquets I have ever seen. They were more “antique” fall colors than bright and vivid and set the tone of the day. That classic feel encouraged me to use more of my “old school” antiqued effects than usual and it looks exactly as I would hope to represent this evening. Enjoy the photos and congrats Laura and Peter! Have a very merry first Christmas as husband and wife!
