First of all - let me say how excited I am to announce that this wedding was published in the 2016 Spring/Summer issue St. Louis Bride Magazine!
Liz & Ellen were married on one of the hottest days last summer. However, the heat was never really a big factor in their day. Everyone was so happy and laid back that it was one of the best weddings we shot last year! They chose to get married in St. Louis at Ellen's parent's house. It could quite possibly be one of my most favorite houses in this city. From the incredible front and back yards, to the lovely charm that the architecture has... it just warms your heart the minute you pull up in the driveway. Hearing all of Ellen's stories about growing up there - from the tree she used to climb, to seeing her childhood bedroom... it was just so special to know she was adding another chapter to her memories there.
These two came to me through a past ATP Bride (Hello, Alice!). Referrals are how my business thrives. It means so much to me when my couples are so thrilled with their experience with me that they are compelled to tell others about it! When we sat down to chat about their big day, I knew right away that I wanted to photograph their wedding. These two are spunky, family oriented, travelers, adventurers, dog lovers, and quite honestly --- totally in love.
This wedding was planned down to every detail! Let me tell you - these families know how to party! They had some of the best vendors in the city working with them that day and everything was executed flawlessly.
Thank you both for choosing Abbie Takes Pictures and allowing me to capture the beginning of this new chapter in your life together! Here's to all of your new journeys!!!
