What a day! Kelly and Mark couldn’t have asked for a more perfect start to their forever than to be surrounded by family and friends here in St. Louis. We started with them getting ready at the Ritz Carlton, enjoying their friends and getting beautiful! Their ceremony was at the beautiful Christ Church Cathedral, which we hadn’t been at for years. Then we ended the day at one of our favorite venues of all time, The Caramel Room at Bissingers. But we all know a wedding is more than the places everything happens at that day – it’s about the special moments when your bridesmaids have a dance party in the hotel suite when your mom tears up seeing you in your dress, when your husband to be is speechless seeing you for the first time. It’s when you walk down the aisle and the solemnity and gravity of this commitment hits you – while simultaneous joy and excitement runs through your body. It’s the laughter, the joy, the fun. It’s the friends, the family, the emotions…the joyous exhaustion. Kelly and Mark, your wedding was all those things. And our hope is that every year as you remember, as you look back, those moments are always what you think of. We are so happy for you! And we are so glad we were there to see the first day of the rest of your lives!
