They met in college, have had each others’ eye for years, and now they’re married!!!! You guys… Chelsea + Nathan’s wedding was one for the books! This was one of those weddings that you could just feel the love for the couple all around you! Their wedding really revealed how much Chelsea + Nathan are loved and I think a lot of that has to do with how well they’ve loved people! From the wedding party to the family and friends that were there everyone was just so thrilled about this covenant being made! I had so much fun getting to be back in St. Louis with so many of our friends to celebrate these two! There were lots of happy tears and sweet moments throughout the whole day!
When talking with Chelsea over the phone about what she envisioned and was dreaming about for her wedding photos, one of the first things Chelsea said was, “Well… I love green!” We knew that would be a little tough to find in the winter, so we made sure to capture a lot of trees and greenery during their engagement session at Forest Park. Well….. little did we know that inside of the amazingly beautiful St. Louis Union Station Hotel we would find lots of GREEN! There just happened to be this amazing wall of greenery that we got to use for a lot of detail photos and of Chelsea and her bridesmaids! It was so fun! The greenery didn’t stop there though. Chelsea, her mom, and friends did an amazing job with all of the detailed decorations at the ceremony and reception! It was breathtaking and you’ll see what I mean when you scroll below!
We had a lot of fun capturing photos inside and outside of the St. Louis Union Station Hotel and on the rooftop of the venue, Neo on Locust! One of my favorite moments at Chelsea + Nathan’s wedding was their first look. The setting was beautiful on this walkway right outside of the hotel and Chelsea + Nathan’s reactions to seeing each other for the first time were priceless! I can’t wait for you to see their faces!
From the glowing couple, to the sweetest first look, to beautiful colors and details, to the fun bridal party, to the amazing ceremony message and best man and maid of honor toasts, to one of the best and long lasting dance parties I’ve ever seen at a wedding, and to all of the surrounding love and excitement for this celebration from family and friends, this was a day to remember!
Chelsea + Nathan, thank you for trusting me with capturing one of the most special and important days of your life! I felt so incredibly privileged to get to be a part of it! It was so perfect! Welcome to the married club and enjoy some of my favorites from your big day!!!
Thanks to all of the amazing vendors that made this day so special!!!
