Thank you to Michelle Ross of Under Grace Photo and her second shooter Huy for these wonderful images!

The bride and groom met in 2005 in Mexico and talked to us about the gorgeous sunset. Immediately the sunset theme was born. Instead of the traditional color boards that we create for couples, we simply worked from these inspiration images (that we found on Google).

The “Magic Hour” Sunset theme was incorporated into all the details at the Four Seasons, with the bridesmaids colors focused on purple and coral.

We worked with Claire and Jonathan for over a year to make sure all of the details would be just right for their wedding. Everything was done to ensure that the event would be something special and unique to them.

Three different centerpieces were used to create levels in the room. (Only two are visible in these photos)

Their wedding got some St. Louis spirit when Fredbird and Louie showed up to surprise the bride and the groom!


Here we are with our happy couple. We must say, Jonathan never missed a single meeting in all of our months of planning. What a joy to have a guy’s perspective on so many elements! We will really miss all those meetings with them!
