I had the privilege of photographing Jennifer and Charlie’s elopement this past weekend at Tower Grove Park. Reverend Michelle Spies, who’s always a joy to work with, officiated.
For more and more couples, these small, classy, intimate ceremonies are just perfect. This is the trend that things are going in the St. Louis wedding industry. While there will always be big, elaborate weddings I’m seeing more and more couples who opt to keep things smaller, but still want something memorable and classy, not the typical courthouse “wedding.” That’s why I’m part of the Perfect Elopements team which specializes in creating just that: much nicer than a courthouse but not as elaborate as a full-blown wedding with a gaggle of guests. It’s low stress – and a LOT more affordable – but they still get flowers, photos, and some of the other special touches that make it a great experience.
