Claire and Patrick are adorable, and they got married on the rainiest wedding day of the year (so far!) but they did not let the torrential downpour dash their spirits one bit! We grabbed our umbrellas and ran for cover multiple times, even within Jewel Box. Yup, if it’s raining hard enough, it can leak! Little streams of water came in through the seams & we had to quickly move our equipment bags and the string quartet had to move their instruments too! ❤️☔️
Love that the bracelet was inscribed “Patrick to Claire” So sweet!
Apparently this little guy made quite a few appearances throughout the day…. gnome bombing! LOL I think he was the giveaway at the rehearsal night Cardinals game :D
the lovely Claire
And the guys…
awesome little woven grass (?) flowers for boutonnieres!
Buds with Buds! :D
The Jewel Box in Forest Park
so this little guy ran, and I mean RAN… no holds barred with eyes closed at full speed down the aisle and barreled right into my chest! LOL
Surprise choir serenade a-la Love Actually (I know this because it’s Liz’s favorite movie, and we all have to watch it!)
time for serious photos. (nope!) LOL
hey guys, let’s go stand in the rain! OK!!
I love these tulips with the dark edges!
So we took this lovely photo…. and then….
this is the face everyone makes when we realize one Groomsman was missing and still on the bus LOL (yes, we re-took new ones with him included LOL)
Patrick is literally getting soaked here, as am I…. major poncho and rain sleeve usage this day!
Now time to head for the dry cover at the Forest Park Visitor Center!
Mr & Mrs!
Always a good idea to provide gift bags for the kiddos!
Let the dancing begin!
yep, still raining! Kinda pretty though with the wet. shiny sidewalk and streams of water in the sky!
Congratulations Claire and Patrick! Thank you for letting us capture your beautiful wedding day and for being such awesome sports about waking around in the rain with me!! with love, kate
