A Gatsby Styled Shoot

Gatsby styled shoot 12-2018 (133 of 184).jpg

Every year about two to three times a year we collaborate with other wedding vendors to create a fun unique styled shoot. Styled shoots allow us creatives to step out of the box to use our creative side to full potential. This shoot we went for something sleek, like an old Hollywood theme. With putting this shoot together we kept our colors and theme on our mind. Once picking the beautiful long sleeve dress from White Traditions Bridal in Saint Charles the theme was screaming more of a Gatsby vibe. Katie and Hillary the florist and even coordinator used white feathers for accents with the theme which made perfect sense for the Gatsby theme to be the final end to our product. This shoot was something that was dear to my heart I love the vintage sleek style. The location was held at Sunflower Hill Farm a brand new venue located in Defiance, Missouri. The venue is gorgeous with a sleek modern barn to a beautiful open floor home that over looks the bluffs in Defiance. We are thanking all the vendor team from the bottom of our hearts to make this beautiful styled shoot come to life.

Lauren + Alex

Gunkel wedding (283 of 828).jpg

November weddings are always so sweet and the weather is perfect. November 10th Lauren and Alex said “ I do”. When meeting Lauren and Alex about a year ago I knew we would click very well we talked for over an hour about wedding details and just getting to know one another. When capturing their engagement images we had so much from meeting their pup Alfred to capturing pictures in Forest Park. Alex and Lauren’s day started with the girls getting ready and Alex’s parents home. The girls singed to good music, took selfies with a polaroid camera and talked about the day ahead. Once the girl’s were ready the ceremony was next. The ceremony was held at First United Methodist church in Saint Charles. The ceremony was beautiful! After the ceremony their pup Alfred showed up for some pictures. Lauren was ecstatic to see her fur baby. Once the ceremony was finished we all jumped onto a party bus to head into Saint Louis for pictures. Alex and Lauren had about a four hour gap from their ceremony to reception allowing time for pictures and different locations. The first stop was at Lafayette Square. We captured the wedding party and bride and groom portraits. The next stop would be everyone’s favorite. The graffiti wall downtown was a must for their wedding day. They popped champagne and celebrated the newlyweds. After the Graffiti wall we stopped by the Arch to snap a few in their hometown. There was still time leaving for the reception allowing everyone to stop at Big A’s on the riverfront. Everyone stopped to take a shot at a local favorite bar. After Alex and Lauren wanted to make one more stop by their first date. Alex and Lauren shared their first date at Erio’s restaurant to take a few pictures. After was the reception, the reception was held at All Occasions banquet in Saint Charles. Everyone one danced the night away celebrating Alex and Lauren. Congrats to Lauren and Alex we are wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Lindsey + Danny

Baker wedding (235 of 850).jpg

November 3rd our dear friend’s tied the knot at Noboleis Vineyards in Augusta, Missouri. The day was gorgeous! The girls rented a home down the street to get ready while everyone was loving on Lindsey and Danny’s baby Huxley. Once the girls were ready it was time for the first look with the bride and groom. Lindsey and Danny had there first look near these two big wooden doors that lead into the vineyards. Danny and Lindsey make a perfect match together. They could not stop smiling and just loving one another during their pictures. After the first look the ceremony begun. The weather was just perfect to have an outside ceremony. Lindsey was walked down by her brother and father before giving Lindsey away. During the ceremony they exchanged a sand ceremony and also gave each mother a rose. After the ceremony led right into the reception. Their reception was epic! The toasts were perfect with a mixture of funny things but also words from the heart. During the first dance no one had a clue what Lindsey and Danny were about to pull! They went to classes to learn a dance together to share in front of everyone. Danny was twirling Lindsey and flipping her over her head it was like a scene in “ Dirty Dancing.” The reception was beautiful and ended with everyone sipping on the yummy wine and dancing to music. Congrats to Lindsey and Danny we are wishing you a lifetime of happiness.

Savanah and Jared tied the knot on October 27th at Sunset Bluffs located in Washington, Missouri. The day started with Savanah and her girls getting ready at the venue. The venue has an open floor plan making it easy and relaxing for a bride and her bridesmaids to relax and get ready. After the girls were ready we captured pictures of a first look with Savanah and her father which left everyone with teary eyes. Savanah later exchanged presents that were handkerchiefs which were embroided with sweet notes for her Mother and Father. After the girls were finished getting ready the ceremony was shortly after, The ceremony was held outside on the lawn looking towards the bluff. The weather could not have been more perfect for a late October wedding. After the ceremony we captured family and the wedding party. During the reception everyone danced entering the venue and later Savanah and her father surprised the entire wedding by having a dance off. Savanah and Jared’s wedding day was beautiful and we are wishing them a lifelong happiness! Cheers!
