There are few things sweeter than two people fiercely in love. This wedding showed that not only are Andrew and Elizabeth devoted to one another, but they are also devoted to their family, church and friends. These two are loved by all and desire nothing else then to love others.
Elizabeth and Andrew grew up at Salem Lutheran Church in Affton, MO, so there was no doubt that friends and family would surround the two with prayers and excitement as they started their life together.
They chose a beautiful color selection of deep blue and yellow.
Elizabeth’s dress was absolutely stunning with intricate detail of beading and lace. Her illusion straps were the perfect touch. And her mother, not only made her veil but also made dresses for some of her special attendants.
Andrew and Elizabeth chose to not see each other before the wedding and so when Andrew saw his bride, you could see the smile come across his face. That smile may or may not have also turned into sweet tears of joy.
Elizabeth was concerned that her father may not be able to walk her down the aisle. In fact, the decision was made day of and was one of the most emotional parts of the day.
After the big kiss the guests went down to a cake and punch reception which was followed by family and bridal party photos. And boy, was the bridal party fun!
At one point Sarah Marie took the girls to take photos and Jonathan separated the guys for photos, however the gentlemen thought it would be a great idea to photo bomb the ladies. This photo was before, and you will have to ask the bride to see the after!
Andrew and Elizabeth enjoyed a few moments alone, before it was time for their reception.
The real fun was to be had at The Christy, and the venue was absolutely perfect to celebrate your first few hours as husband and wife.
See, I told you that the wedding party knew how to have a good time! Now an entrance really isn’t an entrance with out glow sticks!
While the first dance was beautiful and elegant, the father-daughter dance had every eye filled with tears. Tears of joy, tears of thanksgiving and tears of a beautiful happily ever after.
The guest enjoyed a wonderful meal and incredible cake, but the best part was the dancing! My favorite part of dancing is during the slow dances in which you can see the love of marriage young and old.
We are so excited to see two amazing people love and support each other in the good times and bad. Hold each other close in the good times and closer in the not so good times. Thank you for including us on your special day.
