I might be “over-blogging” this wedding, but I just can’t seem to help myself! I knew it was going to be a good day since working with Kristi and Jeff on their engagement session was a piece of cake. They are reserved yet easy going with each other. And they never seemed to be too bothered by my clicking away nearby. And it was obvious that they get their demeanors from their parents who were all relaxed and enjoying the day to its fullest. After getting ready at the Chase Park Plaza, we did an oh so sweet first look nearby. Then it was out and about for photos! Then an emotional Ketubah signing followed by a beautiful ceremony at Graham Chapel on the Washington University campus. Then Catering St. Louis knocked it out of the park (as always!) at the historic Artists’ Guild in Oak Knoll Park. Here we go shall we?! Kristi’s gorgeous lace Demetrios gown and a special moment with dad…
Quickly followed by Kristi’s dependably beautiful shiny things and shoes!
Jeff just putting on his last layers…
Nothing like a shot of whiskey in coffee cups. Use what ya got!
They got the job done.
Kristi helping her mom with a few final touches before getting into her own gown.
Special moment with the grandmas!
Jeff don’t kill me. But I love this. This is the reaction just about all of us women hope we get from our man on our wedding day. As long as they are tears of joy… :)
Gorgeous vines behind a gorgeous couple.
Off to the park! Perfect time of day…beautiful light. And happy crowd!
Kristi should consider a modeling career no?!
I made a quick little unexpected stop when I saw this cool branch hut!
Gorgeous florals by Botanicals Design Studio. Those little pods are my fave.
Touching Ketubah signing.
Gorgeous Graham Chapel.
Everyone anxiously awaiting the entrance of the beautiful bride…
But no one more than this guy.
And off to the gorgeous Artists’ Guild for cocktails!
Pretty cake by La Dolce Via. Yummy.
AND sunset portraits. Nothing beats the light at this time of day…nothing.
Bring on the toasts!
Lovely first dance.
Circling around the new couple for the Hora! Always a good time. Always worried I’m going to be knocked off of my chair with all of the excitement and spinning.
Congratulations Kristi and Jeff! Thank for you allowing me to be a part of your wonderful day! With love, Liz
