Emily & Rick's Jewel Box and Crowne Plaza Wedding

Emily and Rick had an absolutely amazing wedding! They had their ceremony at the wonderful Forest Park Jewel Box, followed by a reception at the Crowne Plaza in Clayton. Although we had a few bursts of rain, we were so lucky to have a beautiful June day. Emily and Rick live in Texas, but choose to get married here, in Emily's hometown. Emily was a simply stunning bride. Her gown and jewelry were very classic and elegant, and her white shoes with sparkly bows on the side were the perfect finishing touch. I still can't get over how perfect her hair and make-up were! Rick was a dapper groom in his gray tux with white pocket square, and Emily's bridesmaids wore green dresses and carried colorful bouquets. Cheerful and bright - perfect for a summer wedding in the Jewel Box! 

These two are a fantastic couple - they laugh often, are so warm and welcoming, and obviously love each other to pieces. Their wedding was a perfect day - Emily and Rick shared their vows surrounded by their friends and family, and then they celebrated and danced the night away. 

Congratulations, Emily and Rick! It was such a pleasure to be a part of your wedding day.

Ying & Marko - Missouri Botanical Garden, Ritz Carlton Wedding Photography

Ying and Marko - what an incredible wedding! Ying was an absolutely gorgeous bride, and Marko was a positively debonaire groom. Their wedding was effortlessly elegant, and their intimate day was full of their family and friends, from near and far. Ying and Marko both got ready at the Ritz Carlton St. Louis, but they waited to see each other until the moment Ying walked down the aisle. Their ceremony at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church was amazing - the priest was a family friend, and the church itself is incredible, with its towering ceilings and gorgeous art covering the walls. Ying wore a Maggie Sottero gown with a beautiful lace keyhole back. Her incredible gown, hairpieces, jewelry, and the bridesmaid dresses were all from her mother's bridal shop, Helen's Bridal. For their creative photos, we went to the Missoui Botanical Gardens; the classically elegant gardens were the perfect fit for this wedding. I could gush for days about how beautiful it all was (I haven't even mentioned Ying's shoes yet! Love Betsey Johnsn.), but I'd rather say how wonderful Ying and Marko are. They truly make an incredible couple, and they are both so personable, funny, and genuine. It was an absolute honor to photograph their wedding. Here are some of our favorite photos from their wedding.
