There are those days that truly push you past what you ever thought you could accomplish, and I’d say this wedding day was one of them! The morning turned a little unexpected when I fell under the weather and had to take a quick trip to the ER. My first words to the nurse, “I have to be out of here by the start of the wedding, no exceptions.” And thankfully the wonderful people at St. Mary’s hospital in downtown St. Louis made that happen! From their, things could only get better and what a treat Lauren and Joe’s wedding day had in store!
Lauren and Joe’s Crown Plaza wedding day was the absolute epitome of an elegant and truly sweet Mid Missouri wedding! Their day began apart, with the two opting to see each other only as Lauren took that long walk down the aisle at Graham Chapel. Along with family and friends, this sweet couple tied the knot and the celebrations began! Of course in November you can never really guarantee bright sunny days, and their wedding just happened to fall on one of the latter. But with a little creativity and adventure we were able to create some absolutely fabulous portraits!
From there we headed off to the reception held at the Crown Plaza and designed by The Bridal Solution LLC! As Lauren took her first look around the ballroom, tears started to flow from just the pure happiness of the day! The night was an absolute blast and I honestly couldn’t have hoped for a more beautiful and truly heartwarming wedding day myself! Congratulations Lauren and Joe, you are the absolute sweetest and I just know you are going to have one bright and happy future together!
