The couple of times I had the opportunity to photograph Elise and Ben I had SO MUCH FUN! Ben may be the nicest guy ever and Elise just radiates happiness and joy. For the record this is not what I expect of all of my clients. So if this doesn’t sound like you don’t worry. It’s not me either! I despise having my photo taken…I get all nervous I’m not following my own instructions and my lip will start to twitch. For real. So when I get a couple that is as natural in front of the camera as Elise and Ben, I’m a little bit in awe (and harbor a twinge of jealousy!)
I am still amazed that after hundreds of weddings that I can still experience firsts and this one had two. 1) Ben wore traditional Scottish attire! 2) Elise when to Villa Duchesne and it just so happened that two other brides in her class were getting married the exact same day. AND the timelines synced so that they all got to have a little photo reunion together. Three brides – one photo! Add on to that the beautiful design by Cosmopolitan Events and some of the best vendors in the business and this day was flawless. Enjoy!
Vera Wang, Jimmy Choo, Cheree Berry, and Joe Malone. Perfection.
Radiates happiness and joy am I right?
Off to the Cathedral Basilica in the Central West End to get these two hitched!
I am always in awe of all of those tiny little mosaic tiles.
Fun ribbon wand exit!
No, family photos generally don’t go perfectly. But outtakes are the best. ;)
Off to Villa Duchesne for a few wedding party pics and to meet up with the other brides.
One arrived! These are all of the Villa girls we had at this point.
Thanks to Mer and Josie for making this veil look as if it is floating in the wind!
THREE brides and ALL of the Villa girls!
A quick stop at the park for a few more…
And our final stop of the evening…the lovely Four Seasons St. Louis.
All of the pretty, classic and fluffy floral designs by Artistry florist.
Can never go wrong with The Cakery and LOTS of tiers!
Sunset on the rooftop.
It was Elise’s parents anniversary too! They shared a special dance.
The rowdy college crowd!
Such a beautiful day! You two are so good together. It makes my heart happy. Congratulations! With love, Liz + Mer
