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.

From Elizabeth Ngundue PhotographyI am SO excited to share this blush and gold inspiration shoot with you! It’s full of vintage furniture, gorgeous flowers, and a couple, head over heels in love. The inspiration for this shoot came from an Audrey Hepburn quote: “The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.”

This quote was so beautiful to me; it reminded me that beauty is from within, although society often says otherwise. I sketched and designed a custom wedding dress for Shelby and watched as my ideas came to life. I chose a vintage, tea length style for her dress, with beautiful lace billowing down the sides. I wanted long sleeves with lace throughout to bring a true classy, vintage feel to the shoot.

Zach wore a tan suit with a blush pink tie, to complete the color palette. I found Shelby the cutest blush heels, complimenting her tattoos very elegantly. Her bridal bouquet was just perfect, with multiple pink tones and gold tipped succulents. I set up the sweetheart table setting with mismatched lace doilies, floating candles, gold chairs, and a lovely blush and gold cake. I wanted this moment for them to be intimate. Serene. Beautiful. Their rose gold rings were the perfect touch to the outfits, bringing everything together. I was amazed to watch my vision come to life all at once; it was incredible.

Shelby and Zach are a beautiful couple! I really wanted to portray the beauty of their souls in this shoot, and that’s what I focused on. The love between two souls is so much deeper than any physical love will ever bring. I wanted something real. The world we live in today is so bogged down by fake portrayals of the human race. Photoshop is used in nearly every photograph, and women are feeling more and more like that level of beauty is unattainable. For this reason, I chose to leave every photo from our inspiration shoot unedited. Beauty IS real. It IS attainable. And it happens to show most freely when two souls are in love; vowing to commit the rest of their lives to one another.
