I absolutely love photographing Wedding stories at beautiful venues and especially those that happen to have outside space. Having lavish and lush greenery as a backdrop adds texture and is an authentic space for my couples. Vineyards can be a perfect backdrop for a Wedding if planned accordingly. Living in the St. Louis area it comes with four incredible seasons which is definitely no easy task to arrange the perfect wedding but with help from your wedding planner they can make it happen!
I am just over the moon with the details that went into Stefanie and Tony’s Vineyard wedding. With rich greenery and a vintage inspired bouquet with incredible florals of luscious peonies, and stunning garden roses. I especially appreciated that Tony’s grandpa’s watch was gifted to him a beautiful vintage pocket watch that belonged to him and is one of their family heirlooms.
A special timepiece that he had given to him by his Dad the night of the rehearsal dinner. Family is such an important element and those sentimental pieces that families cherish help tell their story.
I love that they used this watch as a piece of decor on their Wedding day. Time is fleeting and your Wedding day can go by in a blink. I love the quote by Leo Christopher that says…There’s only one thing more precious than our time and that’s who we spend it on.
That pocket watch can be a symbol of their love and that time is not measured by clocks but by moments and those moments go by quickly especially when you are loving each other.
Thank you, Stefanie and Tony for letting me capture your fleeting moments and for trusting me on your day. Although, your day didn’t go as planned with the axle falling off the Limo instead of getting upset you cherished the day and were positive and though we had but minutes for pictures you smiled through our time together.
