Lauren & Coty {engaged}

They both worked at the Arch, and he was crossing her path way more than what could be considered “coincidental”. After years of casual conversations, innocent flirting, and an overwhelming chemistry Coty finally asked Lauren out in 2008; ask Coty for the story, and he’ll say he begged her to go out with him for years. For their actual first date, they met in Soulard at the Blues CityDeli for lunch. Because they had known one another for years, the transition from friend to significant other was actually quite seamless. It was just easy, no other way to describe it. They continued dating for around 3 and a half years before that night in December when they became something more….

Chelsey & Brad {engaged}

Two weeks prior to their engagement, Chelsey was driving home from work and heard a local country station having a contest on the air for upcoming Leap Day. In honor of an old Irish tradition, the station was wanting women to call in and propose to the men they love. Chelsey immediately text Brad – “Just heard on WIL that on Leap day, it’s an Irish tradition that a woman can propose to the man she loves. Looks like I will be proposing to the man I love today… Skip Schumacher (Cardinals Baseball player). Just Kidding… “

Dana & Brian {engaged}

They’d been dating awhile, and it seemed as though everywhere they went people were asking them when they’d finally get married. Brian teased that every time someone asked he would tack on a year to the day he planned to propose. He was old fashioned and when the time was right, he wanted it to be a complete surprise. She figured she would know it was coming, yet somehow Brian bought a ring and asked her parents all the while Dana had no idea.

Silvana & Mike {engaged}

It was just merely chance that Silvana opened the door when Mike knocked on it. He was having a party two doors down, and wanted to let neighbors know to call him if things got too loud. Struck by her beauty, Mike invited her to come over. Although she never showed up, she did text him “accidentally” a couple days after. Their first date was flawless, and unable to sleep that night Mike text her that she was beautiful and sweet and he couldn’t wait to see her again. Luckily before he knew it, we was doing just that – seeing her often and falling head over heels for her.

Nicole & Zane {married}

In one word? Charming. But one word, would never encompass who Nicole and Zane are individually. As a couple, in one word? Adorable. But a million words could never encompass who Nicole and Zane are as a couple! We see plenty of people who are in love, and all of them show that love in different ways. But Nicole and Zane have the love that songs are written about, novels are created for, and movies are based on. It’s one of the best loves I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. They know what they have is special, and are thankful and appreciate for finding something so special. They are truly, wholeheartedly, soul mates. And they have IT. The thing that everyone searches for and prays to find. We love them for nothing more than their authentic-ness, because their fearless open hearts make them so genuine. They inspire us. To be better, to be kinder, and to project the love and happiness that they do. How awesome is it to inspire two people in love, who see love daily, to be better at love??!! But they are just that… in one word – inspiring. But one word would never encompass all that this couple is. And just like their love, their wedding day holds so much more than words – a million words – could ever say. You have to see it and feel it. So enjoy this visual glimpse into one of the most amazing days ever…
