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!
