Another fabulous day in St. Louis! Another beautiful wedding awaits.
We met the bride Lizzie at the Seasons Salon and Spa. The place has a beautiful Bridal Suite to get ready in. It has a nice place to hang the dress for photographs, a widespread mirror for the girls to use ad plenty of privacy. Each of the girls had their own stylist to make the process much faster.
Upon leaving, the bride was greeted at the door by Joe Barbaglia and his spectacular Rolls Royce. Joe’s a perfect gentleman and we have worked with him on many weddings including his own!
Next it was on to St. Ambrose Church, “On the Hill” to meet the guys. Vineet was all smiles when we arrived and more than ready for us to capture photos of him and his guys.. His brother was his best man.
The ceremony couldn’t go wrong with Msg. Bommarito officiating and the grandeur of the interior of the church. The music was heavenly with the voice of Heather Wessels. We also photographed Heather’s wedding a few years ago. (I’m feeling special right about now!)
We moved on to Lafayette Park for bridal portraits and fun candid photos. The black iron bridge is a really popular place to be. The wedding party was joy to work with making our job very easy.
We worked out way back out of the park and went on our way to Amsterdam Tavern. There, we took photos of the couple where they first met and where they first kissed. We found out later, when the bride’s sister Abby gave her toast, that Vineet’s first words to Lizzy were “I’ve been watching you.” Abby suggested “He may be a creeper.” Turns out, he was the love she was looking for,
The reception was held at the Mahler Ballroom. The entire place has been updated including the bar area and downstairs lounge area, We are lucky to have these venues with so much architectural history in St. Louis.
The dance between the couple was perfect. We could feel the emotion fill the room. The dancing continued into the evening to end a wonderful day.
Congratulations Lizzy and Vineet and Thank You for choosing Ravetta Photography to be a part of your special day.
