Mike + Allie | A Sophisticated St. Louis Wedding

September 9, 2019

We’ve had some of the most beautiful weddings this year and Mike and Allie’s wedding this past weekend was no exception! This gorgeous couple met at Molly’s in Soulard, which is also where Mike later proposed to Allie.  So, it was fitting that a love story that started in St. Louis continued with a wedding that embodied the city. Mike and Allie chose the Missouri Athletic Club for their celebration and it was the perfect backdrop for this perfect day.

I always enjoy getting to know my couples, but these two are extra special to me. It’s no secret I’m a proud cat lady, so meeting a fellow self-proclaimed cat lady in Allie gave us an instant connection.  The three of us bonded over our love of animals and it should come as no surprise that this couple has a heart of gold. Allie and Mike are two of the most genuine, kind hearted, and loving people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and it was an absolute joy watching them solidify their commitment to each other this weekend.

But, my favorite moment from this day was their first look. Mike’s sweet reaction to seeing Allie in her wedding dress was one of the most touching moments I’ve seen this year. It’s easy to see they adore one another and I just love when you can catch that vibe from a couple when you first meet them.  You can tell this couple is surrounded by tons of love and support from their family and friends.  Now that Mike and Allie have made it official, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next chapter in their lives together.

Congratulations, Mike and Allie!
