On July 28, 2018, Stephanie and Phil were married at Saint John Nepomuk Chapel in St. Louis, Missouri, and we were lucky enough to be there to photograph their special day. We don’t always form strong friendships with our clients, but we have with these two. We had so much fun with them on their engagement session that we ended up sharing a few rounds of beer at Urban Chestnut and stayed out much later than planned. We’ve become very attached to these two and wanted to make sure their day was picture perfect.
Steph and Phil saw each other for the first time that day as she was walked down the aisle of the church by her father. The two kept exchanging longing glances, cute smirks, and smiles during the ceremony and threw their hands up with excitement when they were announced as married by the priest. They joyously exited the church to friends and family and lots of bubbles.
After getting some portraits of the two at Lafeyette Park, we easily convinced them to sneak away for a couple of drinks at 33 Wine Bar. It was nice to have some down time with the two of them and to watch them revel in their happiness. We wished this part of the day could have lasted longer, but knew their friends and family were just as excited to hang out with them as we had been.
The reception was gorgeous and took place in a very industrial and rustic venue. Wedding photos of other members of their families were placed for guests to appreciate as they sipped their cocktails. Dinner might have been one of our favorite parts of the day as well. The taco bar was so delicious that we had to make a trip for seconds! Phil’s mother baked five different cakes from scratch, ranging from coffee cake to a chocolate tiramisu cake that was just out of this world.
We are excited to share these images of their day with you and wish Stephanie and Phil enough wedding bliss to last them a lifetime!
