Scott & Cailin got married in a cool October weekend. Their day was full of personal touches, family heirlooms, intentional choices, nods to their passions/interests and best of all, celebration. All things, that weddings should be in our opinion! We began the day at The 816 Hotel in the heart of Midtown where Cailin was gathered with her ladies, her mom, Scott’s mom & sisters. Just one floor up Scott & his groomsmen were preparing. It’s always amusing to compare the hustle and bustle with a bride with the relaxed joking and video games surrounding grooms. It was easy to tell that both Scott & Cailin were nervous as well as excited for the day the lay ahead.
Because of the fall season and their ceremony time and Missouri – for real – they opted for a sneak peek. We were able to duck out of the hotel with just the bride & groom and head to The Nelson Art Galley (where Cailin works!) for their first look. The couple decided to exchange rings during this time, which we felt was a very special touch. We met up with the bridal party at a local arcade. This felt like the perfect spot for Scott, the comic & game enthusiast! With a few tables moved around, a few chairs to stand on ;) and some creative thinking – we were able to snag some fun images of the group as well!
We then took a trolly over toward Pilgrim Chapel and had a lot of fun with group portraits on some stairs on the side of an old building. The weather was turning on us and getting seriously SOO cold, so we were all happy to get moving toward ceremony time!
