Courtney + Patrick wedding {by kate & meredith}

Courtney and Patrick have *maybe* the closest knit families in the universe.  For not being married yet, it already felt like their parents and siblings and cousins had all already adopted one another 100% — so fun!  I met Courtney at her family home to shoot the details… I don’t know how bride’s walk around with a coin in their shoes all day (let alone the heels, I like to look at them, but I do NOT wear them!)

This garter has been worn by the women of the family and is a cute “something borrowed” and also “something old”

A very thoughtful gift… Courtney has apparently always worn a ring with her monogram on it, and so patrick found out where it was made and had a new one made with her new monogram on it!

Okay, so at St. Michael and St. George Church photographers are not allowed in the sanctuary… it felt so strange to watch the ceremony from outside the doors and shoot through a window!!

why are men trying to catch the bouquet?  this is a mystery.
L Photographie St. Louis wedding photography Church of St. Michael and & St. George Missouri Athletic Club_0048.jpg

serious business during this bouquet toss… there is some team work happening!

my favorite thing abut this photo is the look on the face of the kid right above Courtney’s shoe… priceless.
