I can hardly put into words how much I love my job and the amazing clients I get to work with. I have been updating you all about my March 12th bride and groom since we got together back in February 2010. Mollie was my client who I like to describe as “love at first sight”. Mollie didn’t care that she was my first St. Louis bride, she trusted my experience and I admire Mollie for giving me the opportunity to use her as my first St. Louis client… and the wedding went on without a hitch!
Mollie came to me with an inspiration board consisting of; JCrew, champagne, sweet green, a little dazzle, chic flowers, pin spot lighting and well the hint of pink that came months later. Seeing that Mollie and Matt (both St. Louis natives) dated for nine years before they got married, all 170 guests were like family to them. Mollie didn’t always know what she wanted but knew what she didn’t want and never wasted time getting those on board for their dream wedding.
Mollie rocked her Monique Lhuiller dress, Huffords jewelry, Dominic Michael hair/make up and Kate Spade shoes.
Tina is one of St. Louis’s sought out florist, she listened to Mollie’s vision and within an hour knew exactly what we wanted! Melinda, with Paper Frosting, has a keen eye for detail and custom made all stationary.
Matt has this witty charm about him that can light up a room. When I saw Matt’s face as he looked at Mollie walking down the aisle, I thought he was going to fall flat on his face- it was like he saw her for the first time. Standing behind the doors, waiting to send Mollie down the aisle I found myself holding back the tears and trying to hide my goodsebumps. It is a feeling I get when I know a marriage is going to last forever.
I love how Clary captured these moments using Film- this look is perfect for this couple. Clary is known as one of St. Louis’s top wedding photographers, you can clearly see why!
Mollie used different frames for all tables to make every table unique.
