Sarah & Jassen (by liz)

Hey – ok so I have really been putting off blogging lately. However, I am stoked to share this one! Such a sophisticated couple and just an all around awesome day. So many cool little details. The girls got ready at the most gorgeous home I have ever been in…the Overton Residence is one of those homes (or um castles) you drive by and just can’t help but wonder how beautiful it must be inside. The guys put on their tuxes at the couple’s downtown loft. The sun went under a nice fluffy cloud just about the same time the ceremony began at the Grand Basin in Forest Park (and the heat hit this weekend so that was a huge blessing!) Top it off with a hip reception at Lumen on Locust sporting the longest table I have ever seen. Both Sarah and Jassen enjoy eastern culture and chose florals and food stations to highlight the geographical region. Not to mention they topped off the night with a gelato bar and some Whiteys. And I’m not even naming all of the cool little extras these two put into their special day. Props to Rachel McCalla of Lucky You Productions for a fabulous event.  Absolutely lovely!


See – castle. Need I say more?


Designer Nicole Miller dress. I could never pull it off…Sarah looked absolutely perfect in it!


I love it when I can highlight beautiful shoes with funky fabric. I could wonder around for hours taking photos of the same pair of shoes in every corner but I never seem to have the time. Must start arriving earlier.


I LOVED Sarah’s jewelry. I wonder if I can talk her into letting me borrow it sometime. It set off the dress perfectly!


A few last minute touches with the guys (courtsey of my partner Kristie who second shot all day on this one!)


The pre-ceremony festivities included a “champagne stroll” for guests around the Grand Basin. Unfortunately due to the weather there was very little strolling and more huddling in a few shady spots BUT the champagne still flowed nicely!





This is one of my new favorites. It was nice to be able to get so up close and personal as Sarah came down the aisle.


Kristie got this one from the other side – so much love. I really never get sick of this stuff. Damn I am a cheese ball.




And a few city shots on our way to Lumen for the reception.






See – longest table ever! Jassen rattled off the exact dimensions of this thing and it didn’t stick. All my brain comprehended was “really long.” That’s what happens when a creative person meets an architect. Ha!



I was able to get a couple of great shots in the middle of the street outside of Lumen. It was that time of day where there is just a wee bit of blue left in the sky before it turns black.  The valet dudes were looking at me like I was crazy practically laying in the street but it was totally worth it.


Kristie was able to get to the reception space a little early and take some kick ass photos of the space and the details before anyone arrived.



Dance Party!


Toasts and such…


Mmmmmmm…gelato. I’ve gotta figure out where they got this. I want one at home.


Oh god – shots. Seeing that many lined up just gave me a flashback to my 21st birthday.  Thanks for a great day you guys!
