Rochelle contacted us about her July wedding and we were happy to help. She was getting married in a small chapel in Labadie, MO with a reception following. She wondered if we would travel to Labadie. Of course! We often have weddings in the St. Louis area because that is where we are located but it is a breath of fresh air to get out of the city sometimes. We will travel anywhere to help make your wedding special. When we sat down to talk about the wedding details, timeline and photos Rochelle mentioned that the chapel didn’t have electricity. It was lit with oil lamps, which was very cool to see the woman from the church go around and light them all in preparation for the ceremony. A July wedding could have the potential for being unbearable hot. Rochelle and Josue got lucky because although it was hot in the chapel the temperature was only in the high 80’s. Imagine if it was in the 100’s like a few weeks prior! However no matter what the temperature their friends and family would be there to support this wonderful union. And who wouldn’t want to miss when Josue sang a song to Rochelle during the ceremony. Rochelle’s uncle and cousin performed the ceremony in both English and Spanish. It got a bit confusing for a second during the vows trying to go from one person to the other but after a great laugh everyone focused getting the correct words out to join these two in marriage. With the reception only a few miles away it gave us time to take photos on the church grounds while the guest got settled at the venue. The lighting was perfect, the scenery was amazing and the couple were happy to be married. Lots of great photos of them that they will cherish forever. We hope to have the opportunity to work with them again, but them moving to Mexico might make this a bit harder. I’m sure their families will miss them but knowing a bit about these two they won’t lose touch with anyone! Congratulations and thank you for letting us be a part of your wedding day.
