Blogging a wedding is not always an easy task. We flip through hundreds of photos and try to pick our 50 favorites that tell an emotional and real story of a beautiful couple's wedding. Then, we look to see how many we narrowed it down to and we find that instead of 50 images, we have closer to 150. Oops. This wedding hit all the high notes, and as such, selecting blog photos was even harder than usual. From our first meeting with Carolina, Daniel, and her parents, we knew that this wedding would be a wonderful one. Carolina and Daniel are such a warm couple - quick to laugh, clearly in love, and easy to like. When the added bonuses of Carolina's flawless style and Daniel's impressive dance moves, I think we may have stumbled upon a wedding photographer's dream couple. We loved every inch of this wedding. Carolina highlighted her rose gold engagement ring with a custom rose gold belt, perfectly coordinating jewelry, and some fabulous studded Sam Edelman heels. She even had some rose gold Sperry's as a back-up dancing shoe. The navy bridesmaid dresses were tasteful and understated, but the mix of styles added touches of personality (something her bridesmaids had plenty of). While we have seen a multitude of first dances, Carolina and Daniel made sure that theirs was not easily forgotten. While they started out to the smooth sounds of Nat King Cole, the music abruptly switched over to "Suavemente" by Elvis Crespo mid-song, and Carolina and Daniel finished their first dance with a mean merengue. The crowd loved it, and so did we. They both looked so happy (and no wonder, I'd be happy if I could dance like that), and we loved how their smiles just radiated genuine joy.
Carolina and Daniel were married at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Parish in Webster Groves, MO. Their reception was held at the St. Louis Zoo's Lakeside Cafe. Our most sincere congratulations to you, Carolina & Daniel. You are charming and lovely, and we were honored to be a part of your wedding.
