Elegant St. Louis Garden Wedding

I don’t think there are enough adjectives to describe just how much I love this Sappington House wedding. For starters, the couple’s adorable pup acted as their ring bearer (obsessed), and those blush Jenny Yoo bridesmaids’ gowns are beyond pink perfection. Lisa Dolan snapped up a gallery filled with all the pretty, and lucky us because it’s all right here!

From Lisa DolanBrittney and Josh are college sweethearts who are completely adorable and so in love. Their wedding day was the perfect mix of their styles. The ceremony and reception were both stylish but still intimate with close friends and family. Brittney chose a color scheme of pale pink and gold and brought in some vintage accents with hints of lace.

Everything about this day was so thoughtful and sweet. From the monogrammed hangers/cups the bride gave out as her bridesmaids gifts to the ring bearer (the couples dog, Brylee)!

The ceremony took place on the grounds of the Historic Sappington House in St. Louis, with a reception that followed at The Edge of Webster. The couple completely transformed the reception space by adding their own lighting and drapery. In lieu of a sit down dinner, Brittney and Josh chose to serve BBQ from a local St. Louis BBQ joint – Bogarts. The coupled also opted out of the traditional cake and served cupcakes made by Jilly’s Cupcake bar, as well as cookies and rice krispy treats! The cupcakes were decorated in accents of gold, and were almost to pretty to eat!

This wedding was all about family, which is what made it so special. Brittney and Josh went above and beyond to make sure their family and friends had a great time, and it showed. Brittney chose her sisters and cousins to join her in her wedding party, and the gorgeous bouquets and floral arrangements were made by the couple’s relatives.

St. Louis Snowy Engagement Session

With red lips and rosy cheeks, this darling duo set out in a winter wonderland for a snow filled e-session. Exploring frozen streets was proven to be undeniably romantic with sweet moments and warm kisses. While crystal skies and cherry lips filled the frame, Jordan Brittley was behind the lens capturing every snowy second to share right here.

From Jordan BrittleyChris kissed away her bright red lipstick as he held her close by the frozen pond in downtown St Louis. The St Louis arch hung in the snowy distance as they danced and she giggled in the stillness of the white blanket of snow-covered earth. She kissed his cheek and he surprised her with a wintry bouquet and together they made the snow look like the warmest place one could be.

Hint of Glamour St. Louis Wedding

Reason #3,892 why I love, love, love SMP brides? They’re bold, they’re confident, and they’re beautiful. And this lovely lady right here is just that. With a dress design that didn’t allow bustling, her seamstress suggested she cut the train off her dress between the ceremony and reception. Yep, you heard right. So that’s exactly what she did, and the result is perfection. Have a look for yourself in the stunning imagery from Lisa Hessel Photography!

The romantic invites from Ten Four Paper fit beautifully with the entire look of this classic day, topped off with a touch of glamour.

Isn’t this darling moment is enough to melt your heart completely?!

Flowy and fabulous, this is an after shot of the train being snipped off the Bride’s gorgeous gown.

From the beautiful Bride…Teddy and I met in the seventh grade. While in seventh grade, we dated briefly for a few weeks but were only friends for the remainder of high school. It wasn’t until we both attended a friend’s wedding that we began really dating. After reconnecting at our friend’s wedding, Teddy began calling me on a regular basis. Within a few weeks, we were both commuting every other weekend to see each other. After spending the summer together in Chicago, Teddy proposed and we began the planning process.

When we first began planning our wedding, we both knew we wanted an outdoor wedding. After a quick search around St. Louis, we decided on the country club where Teddy had spent many of his childhood days. Both the wedding and reception were held outdoors at the country club. When we thought about our ceremony, we knew we wanted to ask Teddy’s uncle to officiate our ceremony. Being a reverend, he had officiated many weddings before and we knew having him would make our ceremony special. After a very personal ceremony, a few of my bridesmaids, my wedding planner, and my stepmom came inside to help me cut the train off my wedding dress. Since I did not love the look of a bustled dress, my seamstress suggested I could have someone cut the train off of my dress. While my stepmom was a bit nervous to actually cut the dress, I assured her that I knew what I was doing and cutting it was the best option. She did a wonderful job and I was so pleased with my decision. In order to have as many friends around us as possible at dinner, we decided to do three long tables for all of our guests. We wanted a romantic and intimate feeling, so the tables included tea lights and lights strung overhead. Right after dinner, the band began and kept the dance floor crowded all night long. We knew we wanted to incorporate some element of our high school since it was where we began and we had so many mutual friends from high school attending the wedding. As a wedding favor, we gave guests honey that was harvested from the beehives at our high school. Our wonderful team of vendors, and especially our wedding planner, kept the whole night running smoothly. The incredible weather also made the outdoor event even more enjoyable.
