Every since Kimber was a little girl, she dreamed of getting engaged at the World’s Fair Pavilion in St. Louis. It is such a magical place…set up on the hill the way it is. When it was time to take things forward, Kyle knew exactly where he needed to take her to pop the question. Obviously, she had to say yes! We met them for the first time at their engagement session it was at that special place, and we fell in love with the two of them right away. They are such a fun, sweet, expressive and real couple that it is impossible to not love them.
Our excitement for their wedding was given an additional boost because it was at the amazing St Louis Union Station which is a top favorite of ours. The wedding was set to be outside in the courtyard in the glorious St. Louis spring weather, but in case you have not been paying attention to the weather around here this year, it has been two things…wet and hot. We received double doses of both of those things that day. It rained…and rained for the few hours of the day. The call was made, and the ceremony needed to be moved indoors. It probably worked out for the best because had we been outside, everyone would have melted (had they not drowned first). Kimber rolled with it like a champ, though. It’s amazing when even amidst all the pressure and anticipation of a wedding day, a bride is able to take a step back and remember why it is they are truly there. She did exactly that, and you would never know that the day’s plans had been thrown a massive curveball by looking at her face. She was just beyond excited.
There was so much laughter and so many tears (a large percentage of which from Kimber!), and the look on their faces with Kyle and Kimber saw each other for the first time was priceless. And speaking of priceless…Kimber and her dad. Wow. So much love there…I would be lying if I said theirs were the only wet eyes when they were together. Even though the ceremony was not where it was planned to be, it was still incredibly beautiful in the Gothic Corridor. More laughter…more tears…move love. It really was powerful to see so much joy and love for these two from countless faces. After the ceremony, we went right into the reception in the Grand Hall and the party got started (and it was quite the party).
Here are some of our favorites from the day. HUGE CONGRATS to you both…we are so excited to see your future as you grow together!
P.S. HUGE shout out to the incredible Ashlee Erlinger from Signed Sealed Delivered Events. She and her team helped deal with the changes and stresses of the day’s weather seamlessly. That is not always an easy task (i.e. it never is), but she made it seem simple. That’s the sign of a truly excellent professional. Plus, all her work at styling the entire day was impeccable. She is amazing!
