Katie and Adam did not know what to expect when planning their wedding over a year ago. As we talked about the possible changes in number of guest or what would be allowed during their wedding they did not seem concerned as long as they were able to have some family members there and go ahead with the ceremony. As it approached they were very lucky that restrictions had been lifted a bit and they were able to continue their wedding as planned. We spoke a few weeks before the wedding about the locations that we would go on the wedding day. Katie and Adam had a list of places they wanted to go and it was unclear if we would be able to get it all in during the time we had. We knew that moving from location to location takes time but all you have to do is be aware of what time it is and make the decisions on where you will go in each location. When we arrived at the house to grab some photos of Katie getting dressed she was ready to get it started as soon as we arrived. We captured a few images of the details and then we got the show on the road by getting dressed and quickly leaving for the first look. As we prepared the first look location Katie was expecting it to be that Adam would cry when he saw her. Of course Adam was overjoyed and grinning from ear to ear but Katie was the one that shed a few tears when she saw him. We were able to get in many photos at our first location and then luckily found some great parking down by the arch and grabbed a few photos there as well. Theater was important to Adam so a photo in front of the Fox was a perfect addition to their wedding images. Finishing up at Tower Grove Park with the family photos and some impromptu images where Adam got down on one knee completed all of what the couple had envisioned for their wedding day. Except of course the ceremony! We arrived at the ceremony location Royal Orleans and had a little bit of time to relax and prepare before the guest arrived to witness their nuptials. Yet again Katie got a little teary-eyed as she walked down the aisle with her dad and afterward stated that she wishes she would’ve had a videographer to show that she was the one that shed some tears instead of what she thought would be Adam. A short cocktail time while they greeted some guests afterward was a nice moment for the couple to spend time with their guest. Once the dance floor opens we could not believe all of the dance moves that Adam had. He was really excited to get out there and have a great time. It was fun for us to see these family members relaxing a bit and having fun together not worrying about the fact that there was a chance they wouldn’t have even been able to get together. We congratulate Adam and Katie and we look for forward to working with them again #ravettaphotography #stlphotographer #towergrovepark #familyphotos #lafayettepark #thearch #weddingimages #springwedding
