St. Louis elopement

The Accidental Meeting Of Two Individuals

Over the years, elopements have grown in popularity. Maybe couples are being budget conscious, or maybe it’s the need to have a more intimate celebration with their closest loves ones. Either way, we love them!

Nik and Ashley held their ceremony at Missouri Botanical Gardens here in St. Louis. Following their ceremony, they hosted a beautiful brunch for their guests. I love all food, but #brunchisthebest!

Warning: Their wedding video might just make you want to elope! 😉

Together We Can Accomplish Anything

As I’m sure you can imagine, Valentine’s Day is a bid day for elopements. That’s why we think it’s crazy that Lori and Ryan were our first ever Valentine’s Day wedding!

They got married at Silver Oaks Chateau, located just outside of St. Louis. This venue has it all; outdoor spaces (with a fireplace I might add), great picture locations, a beautiful room for wedding prep, and an awesome reception space as well!

Not only is Silver Oaks one of our favorite venues, but Lori and Ryan had incredible weather on their wedding day. I can’t remember the last Valentine’s Day in the midwest in which it was even mildly tolerable to be outside 😂.

Staying true to Valentine’s Day, Lori and Ryan provided themed cupcakes and some good ol’ fashion heart-shaped boxes of chocolate as favors. ❤️

They wrapped up their elopement wedding with a traditional send off, VDay themed of course! 💘
