Mr + Mrs

This couple. We just love them! If you remember from their engagement session blog, they planned their wedding before they were engaged! —Rockstars— 🌟 We are so excited to share their wedding day blog with you!

Every detail of their day was perfect. So many personal touches. We were told that Maura’s family does nothing without purple, so purple was tied into so many details! Like the purple Hershey’s chocolate kisses!(💜💜💜) Their reception venue, Andre’s West, in old historic downtown Fenton, Missouri, features a patio that was the perfect spot for Brad and Maura’s first look. When the time came, Brad stood on the patio facing away from where Maura was going to walk in. As the waiting for Maura began and she got closer, his emotion started to show. He admitted, “Alright, I think that I might cry.” Moments later, Maura started walking toward him, with pretty much the biggest smile we have ever seen, and she tapped him on the shoulder. The joy, smiles, emotions that followed were beautiful. We won’t confirm or deny whether Brad shed some tears when he saw Maura, but we can assure you we did!

Their ceremony took place at The Jewel Box, an art-deco greenhouse gem in Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri! It was stunning. The glass walls, high ceilings, and light everywhere created a breathtaking and romantic venue! Filled with greenery, a fountain, and a long aisle, this venue quickly became one of our favorites!

Brad and Maura, we loved spending your special day with you! The people that surround you are incredible! (Seriously!) Everyone was so welcoming, helpful, and kind! We felt as though we were your guests, instead of your photographers. ❤️ Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your incredible day! We are so excited to see how your world unfolds together. The two of you make one fabulous team!

Congratulations, again! Here’s to Mr & Mrs!

| Engagement Session | 2018 |

Ok guys, we know it’s the day after Christmas, and many are still focusing on family time, but we love our clients and wanted to take a few minutes to share Bradley and Maura’s engagement session 💕.

We shot the lovely Bradley and Maura’s engagement session at Tower Grove Park in St, Louis. If you know these two, then you are well aware of the countless reasons to love this couple. Most importantly, they’re dog lovers (✔️). Their laughter together is on call (✔️). They can also nail a twirl like Christina Yamaguchi on grass (✔️), and their recently proven track record of pre-engagement wedding planning secures the “Overachievers” title! (✔️)!!

When we first met Bradley and Maura, they were not engaged yet but had already been wedding planning. During planning, Maura’s mother, Linda, took her on a girl’s weekend to the Ozarks. Early the following morning, Maura’s father picked up Bradley right after his night shift and drove him to the Ozarks to catch the girls on a morning walk. From there, Bradley proposed, and the rest is history (in the making)!

A special “thank you” to Maura’s mother, Linda, for wrangling their two dogs during our session. Major kudos!

All in all, Bradley and Maura provided a great example of how a loving and playful marriage truly should be—and they’re not even there yet! We know they’ll be just fine as husband and wife!!

CONGRATULATIONS Brad and Maura!!!

With love,

They told me that to make her fall in love, I had to make her laugh. But every time she laughs, I’m the one who falls in love.”
