Church Wedding & Silver Oaks Chateau Reception | Washington & St. Louis Wedding Photographer

What a day Hannah and Austin’s wedding was!  If you don’t know by now, you should know that WE LOVE WINTER WEDDINGS!  I could shout it from a mountaintop!  The soft light and the winter-look help create the most unforgettable wedding images!  It also helps when details are well-thought-out and flowers add subtle pops of color!

If you haven’t been to Silver Oaks Chateau yet, know that it is one of the most simple, yet elegant wedding venues we have ever worked in.  I love when the bride gets ready in a place with good light and clean backgrounds.

And, Silver Oak’s bridal suite is large enough for the girls to get ready and stay comfortable before the ceremony!  Aren’t Hannah’s bridesmaids so cute! Their personalities were so adorable and Hannah really looked remarkable!

The front of Silver Oaks is the most beautiful backdrop for pictures.  And, I love the elegance of the holiday decor.

Before we went to Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Washington, we made a special stop so Hannah could see her sweet grandmother!  There was not a dry eye in the room.  So glad they had this moment.
