Callie & Ryan

I met Callie five years ago when I photographed her sister Chelsea's wedding. I was thrilled when Callie called and told me that she was engaged and wanted me as her wedding photographer too! Callie and Ryan could not have asked for a better day, it was gorgeous! Thank you so much for having me photograph your wedding, it was an honor to see your family again! I hope you had an amazing time in Jamaica. Thank you! - A :)


Faith & Owusu / Park Avenue Mansion Wedding

Faith was born in Missouri and Owusu was born in Chicago, it would seem impossible that these two would meet under normal circumstances. After college Faith moved to New York for work and around the same time Owusu also moved to New York to peruse his music career. Of course there are a bazillion other people living in New York City as well, yet these two met and fell in love. Faith's father shared at the reception that he believed without any doubt that God had brought them together and that He would see them through any situation. Faith and Owusu had prayed for one another before they even met, and God was certainly with them as they exchanged their wedding vows. :)

Kelly & Andy

Oh. My. Gosh. I loved this wedding. Every detail was so personal and unique. Kelly and Andy love Wes Anderson movies and wanted to incorporate that into their wedding.

Dress?  Clarice's Bridal in St. Louis.

Shoes? My shoes were Betsey Johnson...if you didn't notice, I really love red, and I can't resist bows, so they were really made for me!

Suit? Andy's suit was from J. Crew.

Jewelry? I wore my grandma's pearl earrings and that was it. :) 

Hair/Makeup? Bouffant Daddy in Maplewood.

Cake? The cake and macaron favors were from La Patisserie Chouquette in Tower Grove. 

Catering? Mad Art provided all of the catering. 

Venue? Mad Art Gallery

DJ? Andrew Warshauer 

What was the style/theme for your wedding? Our wedding had a loose Wes Anderson theme; we both love his movies and wanted our wedding to be colorful, fun, and a little quirky. 

Andy's favorite part of the day? Andy was a Best Man twice last year, so his favorite part was the speeches, probably because he didn't have to make one. 

Kelly's favorite part of the day? A toss up between exchanging our vows and getting to catch up with all of our Midwest friends and family at the reception and on the dance floor!

Anything you would change? If I could, I would have made sure that we had a nice, sunny day for our outdoor ceremony, but I think everything worked out really well considering the rain and potential thunderstorm situation. Mad Art was super accommodating and the ceremony was beautiful! 

Honeymoon? Paris
