It's ATP THROWBACK TIME! We thought everyone could use some winter vibes during this heat wave we're having!
Lauren and Craig were married on December 3, 2016. (Yes, a winter wedding!) Here in St. Louis, winter weddings are usually avoided but Abbie LOVES them! The lighting is always super crisp and gorgeous in the winter months and she loves the look of the barren trees with people bundled up to stay warm. (Lauren and her bridesmaids were wrapped in gorgeous vintage fur shawls that her mom collected for a year before the wedding!)
Their day was classic and timeless, just like Lauren and Craig. They are both, at first, quiet and reserved. But once you get to know them, they are absolutely hilarious and heartwarming! Elements of white winter lights, candles, pine and silver accented their reception. Lauren had one of our favorite dresses of all time. The beading and boat neck off-the-shoulder design were absolutely stunning!! Craig and his groomsmen wore tuxedos, which is always a favorite of ours.
Thank you for choosing Abbie Takes Pictures, you two. We hope your #ATPexperience was one of love, admiration and fun!
