Jamie + Jared wedding {by kate & meredith}

Where to begin…. Jamie and Jared got married on a blustery day at the Four Seasons here in St. Louis.  They now hold the record for th largest wedding party that either Liz or myself have ever photographed!  Pretty amazing!  Lucky for me, they were also one of the nicest and most cooperative groups too… they even braved the bitter cold for a few minutes!  And the dance party… Oh my.  SO.  MUCH.  FUN.  I love it so much when the two families joining are so fond of one another… makes the whole day feel like one big celebration – as it should be!!  Mer and I started off with the ladies….

One bridesmaid is missing here, I think…but all of them were so cute in their denim we just had to take a photo!

the obligatory ‘how to tie a bow tie’ refresher video session — this happens at nearly every wedding where real bow ties are involved.

This is one of my favorites. Ladies… if you find a man who looks at you like this, lock it down.  I repeat, lock it down.
