One our favorite things about weddings is seeing the love a couple has for each other. Every once and awhile you have a couple that is so intensely in love with each other than their excitement about their wedding overflows to everyone else around. A couple that has been working and looking forward to their day with all their hearts. This is Audrey and Austin to the letter. Their love for each other, their families, their friends, and God was undeniable. Everyone who was there could feel it and could not help but be affected by it. I know that we were. Between the tears and the smiles and the hugs and the laughs, the entire place was filled with joy from the floor to the roof.
The wedding was at the fabulous Coronado, which is without a doubt one of the most incredible venues in all of St. Louis. Before we made it there, though, we took the couple to a secluded spot in Forest Park for their romantic first moment of seeing each other on their wedding day. The mixture of intense excitement and some butterflies in the stomach led to such sweet moments between the two of them (and lots of laughter…which made those butterflies fly right away in an instant). We had a blast with them and their wedding party (especially considering the weather was SO much nicer than you would expect for a July wedding!). When it came time for the wedding, the ceremony itself was so very touching. Audrey and Austin’s faith played a massive part in their entire wedding day, and it was the primary element of their wedding, as it should be. Seeing two people who keep God at the center of their relationship gives us so much joy and hope for the amazing future they have in store. They ended the ceremony with worship, and there is no better way than that to seal the marriage ceremony.
After that, the party….and oh boy did they know how to party! The dance floor was jammed from the moment it opened until the end of the last song. I am not sure that Audrey left the dance floor even once! When the songs were over, everyone went outside, fired up some sparklers, and sent the two on their way with some fireworks. It was such a perfect way to end a day like this. Shannon and I (Joel) were so honored to be a part of your celebration, Audrey and Austin, and we wish blessings upon blessings for you two!
P.S. Major shout out to Simcha and her team from Simcha’s Events for her incredible job of planning and running the wedding day. From the planning to designing to execution, it was flawless. If you are looking for a planner, you MUST check her out. You will not be disappointed. Also thanks to Quain from Rockstar DJ’s for always being both an amazing DJ and a great guy. He knows how to keep the party going strong the whole time, and that was on full display. There is a reason he is on our very short list of favorite DJ’s in the StL.
