Before the wedding ceremony could start, the bride and the groom decided to get dressed. They had decided to opt out of the first look photo session. The groom and the bride decided to get ready in separate rooms. The bride and the bridesmaids had their getting-ready outfits in sync. The bride was dressed in a white pair of shirt and shorts, while the bridesmaids had lovely dusty orange outfits. Mary’s beautiful dress was from Patsy's, A Bridal Boutique, and it was as lovely as we imagined it to be. The ivory dress with its sheen and beautiful train made Mary look, to us, one of the loveliest brides we’ve ever seen. To make her wedding outfit look pristine, he paired it with a mid-length wedding veil. As the bridesmaids were dressing up, our photographer took some amazing photos of the bride. Her bridal makeup was natural and made her look radiant. For her bridal jewelry, she kept things simple and chose a pair of pearl earrings. The cherry on the cake was her bridal hairstyle, with a few free locks and a low-hanging bun, our bride for the day was ready to take her vows and start an exciting journey with her soulmate. The bridesmaids were dressed in beautiful taupe dresses. As the girls were deciding to leave the room to meet Matt at the wedding ceremony venue, our St. Louis wedding photographer took photos of the wedding details. Their beautiful wedding stationery was delicately captured in photos, and so were the wedding rings. Once the girls were all ready to go, they made their way to the church. 


The boys, on the other hand, had reached the church and were waiting for the bride to show up. Matt had decided to put on a classy tuxedo for his wedding day. A navy blue three-piece suit with black lapels made him look like the most handsome man in the room. The groomsmen, as excited for Matt as he was, were dressed in classy black tuxedos. Standing tall and waiting for the bride to swoop in, they looked perfect, which is why our photographer took a photo of them. And just like that, Mary arrives, and everyone makes their way inside. The church pews are filled with their amazing wedding guests, who were waiting for these two to tie the knot. And on the altar, with the priest, Matt stood with his eyes fixed on the door, waiting for his soon-to-be bride to walk in. As the air inside the church swells with excitement, the doors open and Mary steps in with her father. The wedding entry was beautiful, Mary looked absolutely stunning and she wore a smile, with happiness visible in her eyes. Walking down the aisle with her father, who was dressed in an outfit similar to the groomsman! Mary walked slowly, softly taking each step, with one arm around her father, and her bridal bouquet in the other hand. The bridal bouquet was a wonderful cascading bouquet with white, and pink flowers, with greenery! Slowly, she walked up to the altar, and Matt helped her up. Taking their time to stand together, next to each other, the two waited for the ceremony to begin. As the wedding ceremony went on, the guests softly murmured and waited for these two to tie the knot. And just like that, these two looked into each other’s eyes and exchanged their wedding rings. And just like that they had their first kiss as a married couple, and the room exploded into smiles, claps, and happy cheers! Our photographer also took photos of the beautiful couple as they walked down the aisle with each other.

And then, they walk out, together, to pose for some last photos. Before our photographer had Mary and Matt pose separately for romantic photo shots, our photographer used the space outdoors, the column of the church, to take yet another impressive group photo.

Twirling and almost gliding on the dance floor, these two looked perfectly happy in each other’s arms. Then they took turns dancing with their family members before they opened the floor for the guests to start the party. As the wedding guests were enjoying themselves, our photographers took photos of the delicately decorated wedding reception. The escort cards were simple and neatly lined up for the guests to find.
