When Mary told me where she and Eric would be getting married, I knew it was going to be absolutely beautiful. I love shooting at new venues. The creative juices start flowing and I get all excited for new posing and backdrops. The venue for their big day was The Conservatory in downtown St. Charles, Missouri and it was stunning. There were flowers everywhere and the courtyard was breathtaking.
The day moved on smoothly and I remember telling Mary’s friends how amazing the day had been. One of my favorite parts of the day was when Eric danced with his grandmother at the reception. Both of his parents have passed and so he wanted his dance to be with her. She was so excited and when the music started she just danced her little heart out. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room. It’s beautiful moments like that that make me love my job even more.
As you scroll through this beautiful garden wedding, please comment below what your favorite part of the day was. Eric and Mary, I couldn’t be more excited for you. You are finally MARRIED! Enjoy your new lives together as husband and wife.
