Let me start by saying how very much I love to photograph outdoor garden weddings. They really are some of my favorites. One of the main reasons I love them so much is the amazing images that come from the ceremony. Images from an outdoor wedding are so vibrant and full of color. I always plan for color during my creative portraits with the bride and groom but it is an extra bonus to get it during the ceremony!!! That said planning an outdoor wedding can be really stressful, it becomes even more stressful when your outdoor wedding is being planned from miles away. Nathan and Aurora experienced this stress when planning their St. Louis destination wedding. I would have been overwhelmed but Aurora managed to be calm and pull off a stunning event.
Aurora got ready for her outdoor garden wedding at the Chase Park Plaza. Jaclyn and the STLooks team were on hand to create one of kind hair and makeup up looks for Aurora and her beautiful bridesmaids.
Nathan got ready in historic Soulard, St. Louis at his grandfather’s beautiful home.
You may be wondering why these two decided to get married in St. Louis in the first place. Most brides don’t choose to have a destination wedding in the middle of the map! The answer is simple, Nathan and Aurora met here in St. Louis while attending Washington University. They moved from the city after graduation, but it held in a special place in their hearts. They chose to do a sweet first look with one and other before their ceremony at Wash U.
We moved to Lafayette Square for the wedding ceremony. Talk about a perfect day. The weather was amazing and I about lost my breath as Aurora walked over the bridge with her father.
This sweet couple had their wedding reception at one of my favorite venues in St. Louis, SqWires and it was STUNNING.
