Real Wedding - St. Louis, Missouri

I am excited to share this wedding with you today, which I had instant affection for because it shares both the same date and a similar color scheme with my own wedding. The pictures are full of sentimental details and emotion, so I am sure you will adore all of them as much as I do! Allow me to introduce you to Jennifer and Jim. They were married on September 20, 2008 in St. Louis, Missouri. They are High School sweethearts who have been together for eight years and also have an adorable son, Jack. Jen's bouquet consisted of hydrangeas, roses and hypericum berries - beautiful inspiration for any of you that are looking for a green and white bouquet. Her dress is Mikaella style #1260 (you can search for that style number on the website to see additional pictures) and was purchased at Simply Elegant Bridal in St. Louis.

If you look closely at the next picture, you will notice that Jim and Jen are both wearing small silver bracelets on their right wrists. When Jen went away to college her Mom gave her a Sandy Comstock bracelet that reads "Remember" on the outside and "I am always here for you" on the inside. So for his wedding gift, Jen bought Jim a bracelet of his own.
As you can see, the inside of Jim's bracelet reads "I am always with you." Such a great gift and a meaningful keepsake.
Little Jack got ready with Jen the morning of the wedding and sported some seriously cute suspenders, complete with a bow tie and a hat. Isn't he the cutest?
The bridesmaids wore black tea length dresses from David's Bridal, with a honeydew colored sash.
As a "thank you" to their guests, Jen and Jim provided each person with a green coozie and also had a candy buffet at the reception. In addition, they rented a photo booth from CI Photo Booth and guests were all able to take home a copy of any pictures they took during the reception.
There is just something about the moment that a bride and her father share before walking down the aisle...
The aforementioned candy buffet, full of a variety of green and white candy:
It wouldn't be a wedding post without the cake! I am always a fan of simple wedding cakes and this is no exception. The polka dots are so sweet (pun intended).
A sweet moment between the couple during the toasts...
All photos in this post were taken by Stevie Photography, who comes highly recommended by the bride. Thank you so much Jim and Jen for sharing your wedding! If any of you are interested in submitting your wedding to be featured on the blog, just send me a quick email with the details.
