I love getting emails from photographers with wedding day pictures! I get to relive the day and see all of the details I missed while running around. Great photography by Caroline Schubert, she perfectly captured Sara & Eric’s fun celebration!
We started the morning out nice and slow, just the way they wanted, with family and friends…and mimosas.
The whole day was filled with the biggest smiles I’ve ever seen, tears of excitement and joy, and a whole lot of love. Sara was so excited to see Eric and he was just as anxious to see his bride. The Westin St. Louis offered the perfect backdrop for their first look.
You can’t fake happiness like that! These smiles lasted all day and more.
The happy soon-to-be-newlyweds hopped on a party bus with their wedding party to Forest Park for some more amazing shots. Keep scrolling to see some of the beauty!
Both Sara & Eric were such a joy to work with. Their genuine happiness for life and excitement for each other was unparalleled. Even being on the shy-side, they both could not stop from laughing and smiling every moment they were together. They truly bring out the best in each other and there’s nothing more enjoyable to witness than that.
The ceremony was just as beautiful and heartfelt and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a smile bigger than Sara’s as she walked solo down the aisle toward her expectant groom.
With a final blessing, they were pronounced husband & wife!
The ceremony was followed by cocktail hour and then dinner at a fantastic venue. If you’re looking around for one, The Palladium St. Louis will take such good care of you and your guests!
After some dinner and cutting of the cake… guests were in for even more of a treat. Eric planned out a special first dance which started out innocently enough with Etta James’s “At Last”…
…and then broke into a medley of songs that Eric personally choreographed for him and his dancing queen.
The rest of the evening was spent dancing and rocking the night away with Dance Floor Riot.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Rumpel! I wish you all the best and the greatest happiness as you walk through this life together! xoxo
