Where is this year going?! As my Christmas-crazed father would say…just 45 days until Christmas! It’s funny though, when I look at my computer screen I get to re-live August. When I come into the studio each day it’s a mini trip back in tie. And then a giant leap forward through time and space when I meet with couples about their 2017 wedding dates. Talk about all over the place! And the general public wonders why we seem like crazy people.
Meghan and Joel were married at the beautiful Peabody Opera House in downtown St. Louis in August! I get the feeling that Joel is not a big “smiler”. I felt a little bit like we were torturing him with photos but Joel, total trooper! You’re the best! Plus I think he was just happy to be marrying his gorgeous bride Meghan. Which made him smile. :)
First up…shiny things!
Meghan and her beautiful ladies were all in good spirits.
Love Meredith’s side angle on Meghan and the girls laughing and smiling. New fave photo!
This is the “Let’s do this!” conversation.
Sisters helping mom get dressed.
And then they returned the favor.
OMG. So stunning Meghan!
Dad. So smiley. And maybe a wee bit teary-eyed.
Meanwhile a few floors away…
Private first look on the rooftop…
Back when Forest Park was lush and green!
A little tilt shift fun with the wedding party photos outside of the Peabody Opera House.
Loving all of those smiles!
Lots of Meghans and Joels!
Preparing for the ceremony in the Ticket Lobby of the Peabody. Pretty floral arrangements by Artistry on the stage.
Love the Deco architecture of the Peabody. And then all of the pretty and happy people to fill it!
Moving on to the party space…the Grand Lobby in classic ivory, black and gold.
The couple of the hour! Or of the day really. ;)
There were a few zingers in there. Something about drinking in a snowstorm I think?! My kind of people!
Loved being a party of your awesome day guys! Thanks for having us! Special thanks to Joel for putting up with us. ;) With love, Liz + Meredith
