Elegant Lumen St. Louis Wedding | Meghan + Dan | St. Louis Photographer

So excited to have Meghan and Dan's wedding on the blog today! There were times here and there that we weren't sure it was going to happen. What a time to be getting married! But, on the flip side, all day there was just this beautiful feeling of gratitude for just being able to be together to celebrate this special event in Meghan and Dan's lives. What a brilliant light their wedding was in this storm of 2020. 

It was literally a dream wedding for me to photograph, most especially because Meghan and Dan are just such kind and wonderful human beings. I know they wished more people could come to celebrate with them, and as the photographer, I knew my number was taking away from someone else closer to them who could be there to celebrate, so I truly tried my absolute best to document it as beautifully as I could for them and for those who couldn't be there. I hope these photos help capture the moments, beauty, and emotions of the day!

Congratulations again Meghan and Dan! So grateful and beyond happy for you two! Enjoy your honeymoon! 

P.S. Only slightly bummed you didn't book me for beach photos in the Dominican with you guys ;) ;) 


Meghan's mom, Christine, did the bead work on her gorgeous mask. (Never thought I would ever write "gorgeous mask" on my blog, but hello 2020 :) )

Stems did such beautiful work on all of the bouquets. Meghan's had little beads tucked into her bouquet from her bridal shower that symbolized bits of advice given to them for their marriage.

Not going to lie....I'm obsessed with their robes and slippers. So dang cute!  Going to have to get those links for sure :) 

Oh Meghan, you are so stunning.

Meghan and her dad have started running and doing races together. She wrote a beautiful letter to him and gifted him this key chain with the note; "Of all of our runs/walks together. This one will be my favorite."

Safe to say she killed it on picking out a getting ready room. 

Love how you can see little traces of rain on the wall that give away that the day was mostly rainy/sprinkling.

Pictures at the Muny were a must!

The venue (Lumen) was absoluteley gorgeous! 

Even their dog Gunner had to make a little appearance! Loved this sneaky surprise by Meghan's mom!

So, apparently Dan is a huge Harry Potter fan! This Woodham crest was laser cut into the 7th Harry Potter book for them. I'm still picking my jaw up off the floor! We're just starting to read the Harry Potter books to my daughter and we've been falling in love with them all over again!

We had to take a mask photo. Definitely one for the history books for sure. 

This moment was EVERYTHING. So cold outside, windy, and raining, but when they came out and the confetti canons went off and everyone started cheering, it was the happiest, most magical moment ever!! 

Congrats again, Meghan and Dan!
