Rachel and Ben just got hitched! They said “I do!” at Graham Chapel on the Washington University campus and partied at magnificent Mahler Ballroom in Central West End. Their January wedding is definitely one for the books!
I’ve been looking forward to their winter wedding at Mahler Ballroom since I shot their engagement photos in Lafayette Park last fall. Actually, I’ve been looking forward to it since Rachel showed me a picture of this wedding cake that she spotted on Pinterest! Look how gorgeous it is!
Graham Chapel Wedding
I couldn’t hoped for a better way to start my 2017 wedding season! Because it was freezing cold (in fact, if you look closely, you’ll see patches of snow on the ground), we only spent like maybe ten minutes for outdoor portraits. It was at the foot of Government Hill, in front of World’s Fair Pavilion. (But can you tell though?) The early afternoon light was stunning! Even more so were Rachel and Ben and the wedding party. And I’m so glad they braced the cold with me–because I’m totally in love with all the pictures among the pines!
Barnett on Washington was kind enough to let us shoot inside their venue. So we took advantage of that and made some beautiful portraits of the Bride and Groom and, of course, the wedding party! (If you are curious about what the rest of Barnett looks like, check out this Masquerade Gala: A Styled New Year’s Eve Party at Barnett on Washington that I photographed end of December. You’ll love it!)
Malher Ballroom Wedding
Malher Ballroom was a perfect place to for Rachel and Ben to celebrate their wedding.
Watch their wedding album video and see it for yourself!
Photos coming soon! So stay tuned.
