Cara & Matt were married on a gorgeous spring day in St. Louis. Cara was the Maid of Honor for a previous ATP Bride, Megan Rammacher, all the way back in 2012. Of course, Megan was Cara's Matron of Honor and now had the chance to stand next to Cara on her wedding day! One of our very favorite things here at ATP is to see friendships grow throughout the years, like we have with Cara and Megan (and now the beautiful families they have created!).
Cara & Matt's wedding party looked pretty different compared to most. Cara has been a nanny in St. Louis for almost 10 years and adores all of the little "nuggets" in her life, including their family and their friend's little nuggets. There were FIFTEEN little ones that walked down the aisle!! FIFTEEN!!?!! It was the sweetest to watch those little bundles of personality begin the ceremony.
After the photos at Epiphany of Our Lord, they went to Lafayette Square park for some gorgeous photos by the greenery and the magnolia trees. It was stunning!! The next stop was the stone church with the beautiful and dramatic vines! Heather and Jen (ATP Associate Photographers) did a superb job to make Cara & Matt and their loved ones look their absolute best!
The reception was at The Franklin Room in Soulard and was decorated just beautifully. Everything went off without a hitch...until it was time for the head table to eat. As you can see in one of the photos, there was quite a crowd huddling around phones. Matt and his family went to Auburn University and are huge fans! Auburn happened to be in the Final Four and that game happened to be on the wedding day! Although in the end Auburn didn't come out on top, there was no way it was going to put a damper on the Sicola and Hanrahan party!
The food from The Franklin Room was on point and the desserts were the best way to end the meal. Thanks to the Romeo Brothers, the dance floor was packed all night!
Heather and Jen grabbed Cara & Matt for a couple special night shots after their BEST DAY EVER!
