It was an overcast day when our team met at the historical Oakland House in lovely St. Louis, MO. The city of St. Louis is rich with history and European-influenced architecture, so we set out to mix romantic Old World with bright and fresh flare. Our color palette consisted of dusty hues and subtle pops of pink and lavender, accented by an abundance of ornate details. The lace gown from The Bridal Parlour flowed gracefully as our model bride wandered the well-kept grounds of the home. Delicate floral arrangements by Accents Floral Design provided warm pops of color, complemented by the neutral stone of the venue. Beautiful calligraphy details by On Three Designs adorned handmade paper and thick, luxurious fabrics. Our tablescape, so beautifully designed by Lauren Field Design, was embellished with an array of texture - from silk fabric to sprigs of lavender and an assortment of antique glassware.
It was a warm Saturday morning when we met Lexi and her fiancé, Hunter, at Lafayette Square Park for their sunrise engagement session. The light was absolutely magnificent, and we still can’t get over the beautiful mix of green space and architecture! Having recently relocated from St. Louis to be closer to family, Lexi and Hunter wanted a St. Louis style e-sesh, and we have to say… we’re pretty smitten!
Lindsey knew as soon as Garret popped the question that she didn't want a huge wedding... or even a big one, for that matter. She and Garret opted for an intimate ceremony just months after getting engaged, with only immediate family in attendance. They traded an expensive venue for a lovely park and nothing but the rings, a dress, and bouquet... and you what? It was BEAUTIFUL.
The Jacobs were the winners of a session donated to an auction for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and we were thrilled to have crossed paths with them and their adorable littles. Despite the heat of summer, we had fun venturing the trails of Castlewood while pausing to admire nature and skip rocks in the creek.
The art of floral arranging is something I have grown to admire over the years. Happiness in one of it’s simplest forms, I love the aroma of the bundles of florals, observing the selection process and watching what was began as minimal stems of green turn into something large, robust, and beautiful. Abby puts her heart and soul into all of her creations, delivering something lovely and inspired for each of her clients.
Abby and Price had an unseasonably beautiful July wedding day - temps were cool, the light was soft, and the pair were surrounded by those that love them. Abby’s ‘maids adorned beautiful dusty blue gowns that perfectly complemented the lake surrounding them. Lush bouquets of neutral blooms and greenery were held ribbons danced in the breeze, and family and friends joined them to celebrate over a beautiful meal at the Quincy Country Club!
