January 5th Natalie and Dillon tied the knot during the winter season. Natalie and Dillon started their day by getting ready at the Piazza Messina in the heart of Cottleville, Missouri. The ceremony was held at a Lutheran church in Saint Charles. There were 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen in the party from family to best friends from high school. The colors were perfect from a rich gray to dusty rose bridesmaids dresses. Each bridesmaid had baby’s breath bouquets. Natalies bouquet was full or greenery and white roses. For pictures we went to New Town Saint Charles from the beautiful chapel to the lake front. Right before we left for the reception we went to Padavan’s NY Pizza & Pinball bar for more pictures. From arcade games to shots the wedding party had a blast. The reception was held later at The Piazza Messina. This lovely venue is brand new to the area and is gorgeous! From the open floor plan to the open bar area. Natalie and Dillon celebrated with many friends and family. Cheers to the Natalie and Dillon!

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!

October 19th 2018 Lexie + Ryan tied the knot at the beautiful Stone House Of Saint Charles. Met Lexie and her sister a few years back so when Lexie got engaged it was an honor to capture her engagement and wedding day. Their wedding day felt like a fairytale. The girls and guys all got ready at the Stone House. The guys got ready in the grooms quarter which had a pool table and enough room to have everyone hang out. Lexie and her girls got ready in the house itself. This beautiful updated historic home. Lexie’s sister did her hair and make up which made a perfect touch for her wedding day. After the girls and guys got ready the ceremony was next. The ceremony was held outside in front of the Stone House. The weather was perfect. Lexie and Ryan were surrounded by friends and family. Not a dry eye was in sight. The wedding party was a blast we cheered where Lexie’s dad photo bombed and jumped in. Needless to say they were a fun bunch! Lexie and Ryan swung on this giant swing and were laughing so much their love shows in every image. Following the pictures was the reception. The reception was held in this huge elegant barn that is new to Stone House. The person that announced each couple into the reception welcomed the Blues Hockey team player onto the ice as a career, that was pretty cool to hear! Lexie and Ryan danced the night away with friends and family. Cheers to Lexie and Ryan!
