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….
Love the big detail on the Kate Spade shoes
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.
Hi Jared! Looking dapper, my friend.
I love this unique semi illusion top gown… it looked so perfect on Jamie.
Gorgeous makeup & hair by Emily Miller
First look time! The look on Jared’s face on the bottom right is pretty priceless.
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.
Stunning gardenia based florals by Festive Couture Floral…. I can almost smell them through the screen!
And the gang’s all here!
another favorite of these two!
Beautiful even in the freezing cold.
Wedding days can be so exhausting.

Ketubah signings are always so touching and fun!
even more so when the duel Rabbis are both family.
soooo… the mom’s are supposed to break a plate… evidently the china was unbreakable! LOL… they had to save it to shatter later when safety was not a concern!
darn stubborn plate… look at the determination on the faces of these two Mamas!
Just look at these cuties!
and these cuties! LOL
Married!! (although technically married after the Ketubah is signed, I believe!)
these brave cocktail guests stepped out in the snow
Awesome reception design by Simcha’s Events
Okay– so this is SO cool… the chuppah was repurposed and zig zagged across the head table!
Meet the Cohens!
the first dance broke down into something totally different….
MEGA dance party!
As both of these families marry off their youngest child, they are honored by family and friends.
Thanks for letting us capture your wonderful wedding day! with love, Kate and Mer
