Jamie and Bret were married in Alton IL and then we traveled to the small lovely town of Elsah to photograph their wedding party portraits. I'm not going to lie, Elsah is one of my favorite little towns to photograph in. It reminds me so much of Germany. The fall colors were in full bloom and I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding couple and outgoing wedding party to photograph.
Their nautical themed wedding reception was held at the fabulous Loading Dock in Grafton IL. The Loading Dock is one of my favorite St. Louis area venues to photograph a wedding reception at. The setting is so urban and cool and the fabulous ladies of White House Weddings and Events did a FABULOUS job styling their reception and making it look absolutely stunning! Jamie and Bret had The Dirty Muggs perform at their wedding reception, my favorite cover band in St. louis for sure. And the best part of the day was when Jamie's Dad played the harmonica at the reception. Hands down, the best part of the day! Thank you Jamie and Bret for letting me capture your amazing day, you and your families are absolutely adorable! Here are a few photos from their special day.
