The month of May began for us by photographing Charlie and Hannah’s wedding in St. Louis, Missouri. We had such a great time with these two last fall for their City Museum and Citygarden engagement session in St. Louis, so we knew their spring wedding was going to be fabulous.
We started off the day with Hannah and her bridesmaids in the final touches of getting ready. Check out Hannah’s dress! Hannah is the daughter all mother’s hope for (or maybe it’s just me!) and she wore her mother’s wedding dress. I love the simple beauty and details of the dress. And then it was time for the first look. Charlie’s face is priceless as he sees Hannah for the first time. And I like the picture of Hannah’s bridesmaids peeking out the window at the two lovebirds.
Once the first look was done, we headed over to Forest Park for portraits. One of my favorite portraits is the one of Hannah and Charlie on the bridge. Forest Park is such a great place for photos because there is a variety of location to take pictures. One special location in Forest Park is the Jewel Box. This gorgeous, art deco greenhouse was build in 1936 and was the site of Hannah and Charlie’s ceremony. This was our first time working inside the walls of this majestic St. Louis venue. The 50 foot vertical glass walls let in so much natural light and the floral display provides such a beautiful background for a ceremony.
Following the ceremony and few portraits in front of the Jewel Box, it was off to Shrewsbury City Center for the reception. Hannah kept the decorations simple in order to let the reception take on its own vibe. Guests had a wonderful time celebrating Hannah and Charlie and dancing the night away.
Thank you, Hannah and Charlie, for letting us be part of your special day. Cheers! Piper & Justin
