Rain gently tapped on the window as Kaitlin’s corset was being laced. But the sound of laughter and happy stories drowned it out. You could see every bit of excitement, anticipation, and gratefulness for this day on Kaitlin’s face. Down the hall in a separate hotel room, the rain tapped gently on the window as Mikal adjusted his tie and put on his suit jacket. But the sound of cheers and joyousness drowned it out. Mikal was excited, and eager to see his bride. The groomsmen each placed their bets on how many times Mikal would cry, while the tears had already began flowing as Kaitlin received her beautiful bouquet from Poppies Design Studio. This was the day they’d both been longing for, and things could not kick off fast enough – yet as with every wedding, once they do you just want to slow the day down, savor every moment, and completely immerse yourself in the celebration of forever.
Enjoy Kaitlin’s and Mikal’s celebration of just that…
Kaitlin, everything about you on your wedding day was stunning head to toe!
Mikal – you looked so handsome on your wedding day. Even though you don’t wear a suit every day – you should! 😉
The rain was a bit hit or miss all day, but during the beginning of photographing it really started to become more steady. We had to take cover the rest of the day, but all of the locations were cheerful and comforting – just like the couple!
Absolutely obsessed with this bouquet from Poppies!
One important place to Kaitlin & Mikal was heading to Busch Stadium. The rain caused us to head inside Ballpark Village for shelter, and then a miracle of a man decided to take us to the best view of the stadium!! We had a blast taking photos in such a cool location!
LOVE this shot of the guys!!
I’m not going to lie – there were A LOT of tears shed as soon as the ceremony started and they lasted throughout the entire night. I love a wedding day when you can tell the couple feels every bit of emotion whole heartedly! And for those of you who worry that a first glance takes away from that moment you walk down the aisle – as Kaitlin and Mikal if that’s the case!!
LOVED LOVED LOVED working at Neo’s beautiful event spaces!!! Everything was flawless!
Heading to the rooftop for some gorgeous night photos of downtown St.Louis was one of our favorite moments of the evening!! Absolutely gorgeous!!
Kaitlin and Mikal – thank you for not only choosing us for your day, but for being so thoughtful to us throughout!! You are both so kind to your friends, family, and loved ones, and the fact that you treated us with the same respect was so appreciated!! We loved every ounce of your day, and are so happy for you both!! Cheers!
