From Clary Pfeiffer PhotographyToday I’m submitting a wedding from St. Louis. There are a lot of classically gorgeous details in the brides dress and the grooms black tux. My favorite moments of the day was photographing the couples ceremony which looks like an old romantic European church and the couple dancing out on roof during sunset under twinkle lights. I’ve attached the information below along with more details from the bride and groom.

From the Bride and Groom… We met through mutual high school friends four years ago when we were in college at different universities. We both grew up in St. Louis, and were in the same extended social circle during high school, although we had only met each other in passing. Our mutual friends introduced us when we were both home for the holidays and we hit it off. As the first few dates came and went, we both found ourselves asking the same question: Where have you been all this time?

Oddly enough, our relationship was fostered over long distance in the first two years. It goes without saying that it was difficult, and being away from our families only made it more so. Fortunately, we each were given opportunities to return to our hometown. We knew we wanted to continue our lives with all of our family and friends surrounding us, so we jumped at the chance.

Returning home truly cemented our relationship. Marriage was always in the back of both of our minds, but this made both of us certain that we wanted to be together forever. Just over a year after returning to St. Louis, we got engaged at a rooftop restaurant. Rustic string lights illuminated the border; the Arch was in the distant background; both of our families were hiding inside; it was perfect.

We envisioned a warm, elegant, classic wedding. We are so grateful for the unbelievable efforts of all our vendors, the incredible planning help from both of our mothers, and the outpouring of love from our families and friends that made our wedding perfect in every way. We had so much fun creating personalized touches throughout the day including the St. Louis themed welcome boxes that greeted each traveler at the hotel, the homemade chocolates that served as favors and place cards for our guests, the family wedding photos displayed in the cocktail space, and pictures of the bride and groom that adorned each table.

And it wasn’t just the wedding day that was so spectacular. The entire weekend was filled with friends and family; laughs and love. Our weekend began with a fabulous rehearsal dinner in the same building where we got engaged, and ended with farewell brunch and a family outing at a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game the day after the wedding. From start to finish, every moment of every event was wonderful. And we had the perfect person with us to capture it all.

We are so happy we chose Clary Pfeiffer – we fell in love with the beautiful work she does. Clary has a way of making everyone feel relaxed and natural. She perfectly depicted the details of our day along with all the love that we have for each other. Furthermore, she captured many of the details that we missed, and did so in a way that allowed us to relive the day. Her ability to capture a moment, whether staged or spontaneous, was truly amazing.

St. Louis Zoo Engagement

A day at the zoo with Jordan Brittley behind the lens makes for the most darling engagement you’ll ever come across. Complete with animal watching, cotton candy eating and carousel riding, these two sweeties took “day date” to a new level, and lucky for us it’s all sitting pretty right here

From the Bride… For our engagement session we went to the St. Louis Zoo. We took pictures on the train, in the bamboo and on the carousel! Jordan is extremely creative, had great ideas about photo opportunities, and the whole experience was so fun!

From Heather Roth Fine Art Photography…The bride’s parents hosted over 250 guests in their historic backyard property in the Central West End of Saint Louis, MO. The mansion was built in 1908 and was the perfect place for their daughter’s B&W striped and gold wedding. With John being from New Orleans, the reception embraced some of his hometown flair and a few of his favorite things including old-fashioned cocktails + cigars, masquerade masks, a scotch bar, and a kickin’ 6 piece instrumental band – the Funky Butt Brass Band.
