I'm Jessica Lauren - a wedding photographer for happy couples who are stoked about their wedding day! I couldn't be more thrilled that you stopped by! This is where I share bits and pieces of my passionate heart, spontaneous adventures, and pretty pictures of my rad clients! Feel free to grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile! xoxo
Oh friends… today’s post is one for the books!! It’s been almost a year and a half since Ashley and I first got coffee and chatted all about their World’s Fair Pavilion wedding – so needless to say, I’ve been anxiously awaiting this day for quite awhile now! Alex and Ashley are two absolutely incredible people, so I knew there wedding day would be nothing short of amazing. We started off their day getting ready at the Chase Park Plaza before heading to the Shrine of St. Joseph for their ceremony – and out of all the churches I’ve photographed, this one it most definitely up there as a favorite!!
After their ceremony we headed to Forest Park for their portraits and then to their incredible reception. Y’all… it was just unreal!! This just might be my new favorite reception venue in St. Louis! Every detail was flawless (Ashley was a ROCKSTAR bride and planner!! A girl after my own heart!) and it couldn’t have been a more perfect day! These two enjoyed the company of their dearest friends and family with great food, a live band, and the sun setting in the background. Does it get any better than that?! It was truly a DREAM that I couldn’t have been more honored to document.
Alex and Ashley – wishing you two a lifetime of joy, sweet memories, and endless adventure. So much love to you guys!
Not only was this day phenomenal, but I had the joy of working with some of my FAVORITE vendors in St. Louis!! A huge thank you to every who made this day possible!
