From the Bride…Nick and I met in college, but we did not begin dating until after he had graduated. After 7 years of dating, we made our annual 4th of July trip to our family cabin in Northern Minnesota. I had always hoped that Nick would propose there, since it is so special to me, but as the week went on and our friends arrived, I began to think it wasn’t time. Well Nick proved me wrong and surprised me one morning on the beach. We were then able to spend the remainder of the weekend celebrating with friends and family!

We knew we wanted a classic and timeless wedding; but our main goal was to make sure our guests, who were traveling from all over, would have an amazing time. I grew up in Richmond, VA and wanted to take some southern accepts and merge them with my new home of St. Louis! We had monogrammed ribbons on the bouquets and magnolia leaves through out the reception, and St. Louis staples in the welcome bags with the famous arch on the welcome note. We kept with a color scheme of black and white, with pops of gold and white flowers with lots of greenery. With the help of amazing vendors, everything just seemed to fall into place, creating the wedding of our dreams. I do have to add that I really lucked out with the most amazing partner because he helped plan almost everything for our big day! It would not have been possible without him.

Throughout the day I was able to spend special moments with my parents, sister, new family, bridesmaids and attendants. All moments I will cherish and all people who have played a huge part in my life. But my first look with Nick was one of my favorites of the day. We were able to take that time to really let it sink in that we were getting married. I will never forget his face when he turned around and the laughs we shared in the moments to follow (Nick always knows how to make me laugh and we are so lucky we found Michelle to capture it all!)

It’s hard planning a wedding, but it really is all worth the stress and tears. I received some advice that I really took to heart in the final month leading into the wedding. “Keep your eye on the prize; marrying your best friend.” This reminded me that it was all going to work out, and it did! From the cake and flowers, to heart warming speeches, to spending the night dancing away with all of our favorite people. It really was the best day ever.

Classic St. Louis Cathedral + Art Museum Wedding

Clary Pfeiffer has a way with the camera that makes me melt with every single wedding she delivers to our screens. Today, that statement rings true again and I can’t seem to peel myself away from this stunner of a gallery. The snaps of the Bride in her Reem Acra dress alone are worth it (can you handle that neckline?!). More this way in The Vault!

From Clary Pfeiffer PhotographyToday I’m so excited to send you this wedding from St. Louis at the Cathedral Basilica and the St. Louis Art Museum. The wedding venues are grand but in the beauty and size. They are perfectly breathtaking with the ceiling in the cathedral covered in mosaic tile to the art space in the museum with massive story tall walls for a dinner filled with candlelight and long tables. The wedding day truly was a joy to photograph, Brittany and Patrick had so many fun elements. I love their white trolly and white get away car. They also honored the grandparents by having this be the ring bearer and flower girl.

From The Bride…Patrick and I met at a surprise wedding anniversary celebration for my best friend and Patrick cousin’s parents. It was the first time we had ever met and once we started talking, there was no turning back!

We stayed together through two periods of me living abroad and it only made us stronger as well as provided for some amazing travel opportunities together! When I moved back, Patrick and I were able to make our life here in St. Louis. I began teaching French and Patrick continued his work as an environmental engineer. On a visit to France in the summer of 2013 Patrick proposed to me at sunset at the beautiful Chateau Grand Barrail in Saint-Emillion.

Our love for travel really drove the vision for our wedding day. We have so many happy memories going around the world together and being in the Cathedral Basilica and St. Louis Art Museum locations just felt like we were on another one of those adventures. However, it was even better this time because we were able to spend this romantic and magical evening with all of our friends and family as well!

From Mike CassimatisI’m so excited to share Michelle and David’s beautiful wedding with you. Michelle and David are two of the sweetest people you could meet and planned their own wedging all the way from NYC. Both being lawyers, they left no detail behind. They had a sweet, intimate Jewish wedding ceremony in the ticket lobby of the amazing Peabody Opera House. A stunning reception followed in the upstairs ballroom.
