If we had only one word to describe Kris and Meghan’s Navy blue and gold urban chic wedding, that word would have to be legacy. Every part of this affair was about family, their heritage, the legacy left behind by others, and the life that Kris and Meghan plan to build together.
Everyone in their bridal party was a member of their family. And with Kairos Photography behind the lens, they were surrounded by the ones they love most and it was incredible to see the bond between both families. Meghan’s mom passed away when she was young, but there were glimpses of her legacy in every aspect of their day. From honoring her mom by wearing her watch and ring to the moment of silence for her in the ceremony, each a nod to her mother’s life and love, a love that lives on in her children, was precious and special.
From the photographer:
Meghan and Kris are perfect for each other. It’s obvious that they are each other’s best friend and the complement to the other person’s needs. More than that, it’s clear that they are incredibly well-loved by so many others. It was incredible to see all of the people who came together to share in their celebration. There was much joy, countless stories of their journey together, and an overwhelming sense of support for the covenant these two were making with one another.
As for the day itself, we couldn’t have asked for better weather! It was February in St. Louis, which means we should have been freezing! Instead, it was gorgeous and 75 degrees, sunny and perfect in every way! Meghan did a fantastic job assembling details that made her vision come alive. We started the day at The Magnolia Hotel for prep and detail shots, which included her amazing lace, fitted gown. I’m also in love with Kris’ navy monogrammed suspenders. And I’ve always adored Meghan’s stunning ring, which Kris helped design!
In addition to these incredible details, I’ve also been swooning over her Anemone bouquet and the champagne sequined bridesmaid dresses! The ceremony and reception were both held in Downtown St. Louis at Windows on Washington, a loft space that made the perfect backdrop for their urban celebration. Their ceremony started with a harpist and was filled with personalized touches that reiterated their story together. This carried right over to the reception, which included and epic cake smash and a rockin’ dance party! So glad we got to be a part of their amazing day!
Thanks for stopping by!
