I got to meet Sami and Matt at a wedding last year and instantly knew they were such a perfect match! Matt has a huge personality and is always laughing and Sami is the calm to his storm. They are both so kind and generous and it was a huge honor of mine to capture these high school sweethearts’ special day!
Sami and Matt have a huge love for the city of St. Louis so it was the perfect setting for their wedding day. They both got ready at the gorgeous Four Seasons Hotel, then shared a first look on the rooftop with the perfect view of the arch. They read adorable letters to each other reminiscing on their years together so far and anticipating their future together. Then we loaded up their bridal bridal party and traveled around the city for a bit hitting a few of their favorite spots like the old courthouse, Busch Stadium and the Arch Park. Their bridal party was so much fun and full of celebration!
Our last stop was to 612 North, their gorgeous wedding venue on the St. Louis landing. The ceremony was so perfectly full of candle light and all of the people who love Sami and Matt. Matt had a huge smile of his face as Sami’s dad walked her down the aisle to give her away. Their family friend officiated a sweet ceremony and officially married them as Mr. and Mrs. Janes! They danced back down the aisle with huge smiles on their faces!
During an intimate cocktail hour we took Sami and Matt back outside to the gorgeous landing streets and grabbed some night photos under the lights. It was bitterly cold, but these two were total troopers and braved it! Then it was time to finally announce them in their reception. They did such an amazing job dreaming up and finding the perfect vendors to finalize every single detail of their reception space. From signature cocktails, gorgeous florals and tons of candlelight, it was truly a dream space to welcome all of their guests. Sami and Matt’s friends and family gave heartfelt speeches, they both shared a dance with their parents and then a first dance as husband and wife. The amazing Diamond Empire Band rocked the rest of the night keeping the dance floor full of celebration! It was truly a beautiful winter night for the newlyweds and I am so thankful to have been a part of it. Congratulations Mr. And Mrs. Janes!
Thank you to these amazing vendors!
