Drew & Emily’s romantic winter wedding at Chandler Hill Vineyards was full of emotion and joy!
The vineyard is one of my favorite venues in the St. Louis area because, no matter the weather, it’s always beautiful! We ended up with a very rainy December day, but truly NOTHING could dampen their joy! We did photos in the rain, embraced the clear umbrellas, and made absolute magic!!
Emily started the day getting ready with her bridesmaids and family in matching PJs, and even Grandma had a pair — it was so sweet! We grabbed a few photos with her cats before her mom helped her into her gown and we were off to the vineyard for their first look!
Despite the weather, Drew & Emily were all smiles after seeing each other for the first time and their go-with-the-flow attitudes helped everyone else stay calm, cool, and collected too! Luckily, Chandler Hill has so many amazing locations for photos on the grounds so we were able to sneak inside to get out of the rain when needed and could pop back out with different groups when it was time for the bridal party and family photos … easy!
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 great vendors on such an important day!
It’s abundantly clear that Drew and Emily are their own unique people, but absolutely bring out the best in one another. This will forever be one of my favorite days because it was SO chock full of emotion and joy, and I couldn’t have been more grateful to share in their celebration!
