I love it when my clients do things their own way. And by that I mean they don’t adopt other people’s ideas or take on a totally new identity as their wedding persona. Instead, they take the time to think through the things that are important to them, activities they enjoy doing together, items they collect, interests and hobbies they share, and then they take those things and incorporate them into their wedding day. It personalizes it and makes it extra special! Maggie and Steve have an entire bookcase full of vinyl records and love music, so they centered their wedding day around it! The invitations were 45’s printed with their wedding information, their favors were CD’s of their favorite songs and the table numbers were printed on records as well. They met working together at Kaldi’s so not only did we make a special photo stop there, but they had a “love is brewing” coffee station at the reception. And to top it all off, Steve’s last name (and now Maggie’s too!) is Schuh so they played the “Schuh Game” during the reception to kick things off (hilarious). I had such a great time with you guys and hope you enjoy the photos!
For this dress shot I am standing on a toilet shooting through their bathroom door at the dress hanging on another door. Hee!
The cute vinyl invitation mentioned above. Love.
Orange shoes surrounded by records! Sorry Steve – I tried to put everything back where it belonged afterwards, but I’m not positive I got it right. Maggie warned me you would notice immediately if something was off. ;)
Maggie’s favorite fruit and Grandma’s hanky.
So pretty Maggie!
Momma was with her and her family all day.
Off to the Jewel Box! For the record, when we went into the Jewel Box it was bright and sunny (shown below), but by the time we left it was threatening rain. Ahhhhh… good ol’ schizophrenic St. Louis weather.
Maggie gave her dad an embroidered hankie that said “Of all the walks we’ve taken together, this one is my favorite.” And this is the reaction.
Here she comes!
Tears and smiles.
The officiant did an amazing job with the ceremony! It was absolutely custom tailored to fit these two.
The pretty (and handsome) party!
And after some relaxing park time we all headed to Kaldi’s Coffee for a little pick me up. :)
Big soccer fans, so this stop was a must for the wedding party to kick back and relax with a beer…or two.
I beat everyone to Third Degree Glass Factory to get a few shots of the cute, personalized reception details!
This place is really cool. They also host glass blowing classes if anyone is interested! I think I might have to give it a try here soon…
The new Mr. and Mrs. Schuh!
The chefs for Entree Events are pretty impressive. Check out this special take on the standard cheesecake.
The “Schuh” Game! Normally known as the shoe game of course. Lot’s of fun and kind of like the newlywed game. Each person holds one of their shoes and one of their spouse’s shoes and they sit back to back. Then the emcee asks questions such as “Who REALLY wears the pants in the relationship?” or “Who is the most adventurous in the bedroom?” and they each hold up the shoe of the person they think fits the correct answer to each question. Usually causes the crowd to erupt into laughter. And rightly so. :)
They don’t always agree.
Congratulations you two! I had such a wonderful time working with you both on your heartfelt and unique wedding day! With love, liz
