Dani and Joey celebrated one of the most beautiful wedding days in St. Louis! The Coronado is just stunning and then you add in a couple as beautiful as this, well that just makes a photographer’s heart flutter!
Since there wedding was later in the year and sunset happens so early in the late Fall/Winter, we planned on a First Look at The Chase Park Plaza! Before the First Look though, these two prepped for the day with their loved one, Dani in her childhood home and Joey at The Chase! Dani has a whole family full of nieces and wanted to have each little one take a photo with her dress as a future present, how sweet is that!
The First Look was a beautiful moment between Dani, Joey, and their immediate family and wedding party! Since their “first look” wouldn’t be happening down the aisle, they wanted their family and friends to be a part of it as well! From there we captured gorgeous portraits in St. Louis and then headed to their sweet ceremony at St. Francis Xavier College Church! This is truly one of our favorite churches to photograph in St. Louis, so so stunning!
From there it was off to The Coronado for their grand reception! From dinner into the toasts, their reception was perfect. Then Dani and Joey surprised everyone with a choreographed dance which made you feel as if you were in a fairy tale! Such a beautiful day from the beginning to the end with the sweetest couple around! Congratulations Dani and Joey, so so happy for you both!
