I am the biggest, biggest fan of Clary Pfeiffer and it has everything to do with those dreamy, light-filled images of hers. And this couple, gave her so very much to work with in a St. Louis garden inspired wedding woven with pretty touches like peach garden roses whipped up by Wildflowers and a lace dress by Vera Wang that will forever be one of my favorites. So go ahead, grab all the pretty peaks your heart desires right here in the full gallery.
From the Bride… David and I met at a dive bar in Denver. I had just moved to Denver a few months before from Chicago and my roommates had convinced me to go out on the town. I remember seeing David across the bar and thinking he was handsome. David came up to me a bit later and told me that I looked familiar. I let him probe with questions for a bit but having just moved there I knew it was unlikely we had met before. I thought that it had been a cute pick up line though! Later David told me this was the pick up line his brother had used on his future wife and that is why he had used it. Somehow during our conversation we ended up talking about my favorite ice cream in Denver (salted oreo, so good) and we made a date to get some the next night. Our ice cream date lasted into the morning hours talking under the stars. I called my Mom the next day and told her I had met the man I was going to marry. David and I saw each other the next 10 days in a row and the rest is beautiful, ice cream filled history.
David and I spend a lot of time outside; adventures in nature are a big part of the reason we each moved to Denver. After we got engaged we knew our top priority was to be surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors. While on a visit to St. Louis to see David’s family we were on our way to get….. ice cream (I told you it is big part of our relationship) and we saw the Worlds Fair Pavilion in Forest Park lit up at night perched atop a beautiful hill. We chose it that night as our location and from there prioritized the comfort of our guests, the incorporation of our casual style, and making the nature and the outdoors center stage. Our vision included a more casual garden attire, lots of lush green garden inspired florals, giant palms, and the simplicity of twinkle lights highlighting an incredible terrace overlooking the park. My Mom and I made fan programs, and fabric ribbons to wave for our recessional. We were so pleased that our day really felt like us and embodied our life together, and beyond grateful to share it with the people we love the most.
