Planning a winter wedding can be very challenging, but Anna and Brad did a fabulous job for their December wedding! Being from Kansas City and Indiana, they decided on St. Louis because it means so much to them. It’s where Anna and Brad met while attending school at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. After a beautiful ceremony at The Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis and a walk around St. Louis’ Central West End, we headed to a cozy reception at The Lodge at Grant’s Trail. Two of my favorite moments from the day were the look on both Anna and Brad’s faces during the first look, and the heartfelt speech given by Anna’s father during the reception.
A few words of advice to future bride and grooms:
Anna: Although it is hard at times, try to not worry about the little things and enjoy the company of all those around you who love you.
Brad: If possible, allow for one day before leaving for honeymoon. We spent the entire day after the wedding saying goodbye to family, packing, opening gifts, and organizing apartment. I know we would have been stressed and pressed for time trying to leave for our honeymoon the day after our wedding.
Congratulations to you both as you begin your new year as a married couple!
