Mr. & Mrs Haug-- in their glory

We were absolutely thrilled to have a recent two page spread in the Real Weddings section of St. Louis Bride magazine---- and Patrick and Jennifer Haug's wedding was a perfect fit. Gorgeous details, an exquisite reception and a very attractive bride and groom, I mean how can you go wrong? The spread is in the recent issue of St. Louis Bride, hope you have a chance to take a look and we know you will agree that it is the best issue ever from the cream of the STL bridal magazine crop---- hands down.

Upcoming Show & Cute Little Custom Toppers

We're all prepping for one of the favorite wedding shows of the year! Held this Sunday at Windows Off Washington, St. Louis Bride will gather great vendors in a great space all for local brides. If you are planning on attending the show, Bobbi and I would just love it if you would please stop by and say "hello"!

We found the cutest little custom cake toppers! They're absolutely not for everyone, some brides and grooms opt for flowers, sentimental or vintage toppers, or any other manner of cake dec finery. These were simply too cute not to share!

They come from The Small Object, owned by Sarah Neuberger.
You know you are in for a treat when you visit her site and are met by the little "sticker" above.......... yes do, close your eyes and smile real big. She's creative and just plain fun! Whether or not you covet these little toppers, they're loads of fun to look at and a set could look just like you!





I'm especially enamored of this couple of course!



Happy Friday!

Otherwise Engaged

Busy stuff around the studio, just seems to be a lot going on.

One of the things that are always enjoyed are engagement sessions, a nice time to re-connect with BBP brides and grooms and have a little fun. The last blast of uber cold weather brought that dry powdery snow and one brave couple took advantage of the gift (ack) from Mother Nature and have Bobbi shoot their session. Okay, okay--- it was all about Caleb's tight schedule and that whole bird in the hand thing (make hay while the sun shines????) Bad metaphors aside, Alecia and Caleb made pretty good use of their session tiime I'd say! The question is, who won that snow fight??????

Their vid is below :

I remember that nasty cold--- it seems forever imprinted on my memory! Thank heavens this week and into next remains extremely mild by comparison! You know that Old Man Winter isn't done with us yet!!

Another look at Ashley and Brad

Also from the shiny new pages of St. Louis Best Bridal Magazine comes a last look at the wedding of Ashley & Brad.

We love this couple and their families, it was a blast working with them during the period leading up to their special day. On one of the hottest days of the year they were married and such completely great sports about the heat.

It's a pleasure to call them friends!

As always, we are reminded that our clients are the best in the world and we are the luckiest studio in the world!

Life After Snow

The snow arrived, a few inches here at the studio although it is hard to tell REALLY with the drifting and blowing. What we know for sure is that it is cold. Super cold and getting colder. (I yearn for warm tradewinds and sandy beaches in a big way!) Have I mentioned that it is going to be 82 in Honolulu today?

Maybe it is just time to remember that there is STL weather not below freezing and that the snow does (someday) give way to green grass, sunny skies and warm temperatures.

Yes, there IS golf. Not for a few months but golf cometh along with activities that are without skis, snowshoes, or shovels. Mickey and Jason will tell you.......................... y'just gotta' hang on!

Engagement sessions in the snow are coming up (weather permitting of course) and I can assure you that they won't look like Jennifer and Shaun's!

No short sleeves or jacket-less posing will be happening. (I hope!)
