This colorful spring wedding at Chandler Hill Vineyards was a gorgeous, joyful day! We’re back at one of my favorite locations in the St. Louis area, this lovely vineyard full of warmth, nature, and romance. Celebrating Brandon and Brooke was easy to do. For example, their kindness and fun radiated throughout their images and their day. Between a sweet couple and a stunning venue, this wedding day was a dream.
Brooke first started the day getting ready on-site and we were able to capture all the details of her day. There was so much thought put into everything from vow books to invites to their rings in the most lovely pink ring box, embossed with Mr + Mrs on it. You can tell the way they care about the little things while still valuing people above all else.
Brooke had a tearful first look with her father before exchanging letters with Brandon – another emotional moment of the day. They were all smiles when seeing each other for the first time and the day flowed so smoothly. Roses + Mint absolutely outdid themselves on the florals. The arrangements were the perfect bold colors for spring paired with classic elegance.
Likewise, The staff at Chandler Hill Vineyards did an amazing job with this wedding from providing an excellent backdrop to catering the entire delicious meal. Their staff were so helpful and friendly and made the day a breeze. I could not be more thankful to partner with them and other vendors on such an important day!
Lastly, to finish off their night with a bang, Brooke and Brandon celebrated with fireworks and sparklers! Is there anything more perfect than moment of dancing under the stars with your love and watching fireworks explode across the sky? They tied it all up with a sparkler exit and quick kiss before heading off on their honeymoon. Keep scrolling below to see their full day unfold!
