I could not have been more excited to capture Mallory and Zach’s St. Louis wedding day! They met in high school and started dating while going to Physical Therapy school at St. Louis University, so what better setting than Saint Francis Xavier College Church right on SLU’s campus? Mallory and Zach both spent a relaxing morning at the Chase Park plaza getting ready with their wedding parties. Mallory’s mom helped her put on her final details, she was absolutely stunning in her custom gown fit for a princess. Mallory and Zach shared a beautiful first look and spent a few moments really taking in the fact that it was their wedding day! We met up with their bridal party and took some really fun portraits before heading to the church to make it official.
Mallory’s dad walked her down the aisle and both her and Zach smiled through the tears as her dad gave his only daughter away. Their priest performed a beautiful, traditional catholic ceremony uniting Mallory and Zach in marriage. They shared their first kiss as husband and wife before excitedly walking back down the aisle hand in hand!
We then traveled to one more fun location to capture some “Just Married” photos of Mallory and Zach. Their bridal party really brought the fun and I loved hanging out with them all day! Finally, we headed to the Wild Carrot, Mallory and Zach’s gorgeous, one-of-a-kind venue. They immediately started the party with a beautiful first dance in which Zach spun his gorgeous bride around the dance floor. It was so apparent how truly surrounded these two are as their friends and family gave heartfelt speeches to express their love. The entire night was a giant celebration for Mr. and Mrs. Boente and I absolutely loved being a part of it! I am so excited to share more and could not be happier for these two deserving people! Congratulations Mallory and Zach!
