Kevin and Kristin | St. Francis Xavier College Church and Barnett on Washington

St. Francis Xavier Wedding St. Louis

A St. Francis Xavier Wedding in  St. Louis is a wedding that many couples dream of. College church is very iconic and holds so much nostalgia for many of our cities families.

Kevin and Kristin knew from the start they wanted a St. Francis Xavier Wedding.

I first met Kristin she was a bridesmaid in another wedding I photographed. Little did I know before shooting her wedding she would be a bridesmaid I worked with multiple times. She became a friend almost by accident, but every time we met she would tell me she was getting married in this beautiful and iconic church.  I was just ecstatic when she and Kevin contacted me to photograph their St. Francis Xavier Wedding at College Church.

Here is what Kristin had to share about working with the Dana Tate Weddings crew:

“Dana is one of the most genuine and wonderful people we have ever met. She is an amazing photographer, but more than that, she is a wonderful partner in the wedding planning process. We met Dana in 2013, and I have been a bridesmaid in three weddings that Dana was the photographer. As the bride, I knew what to expect from Dana and she takes care of everything. Our engagement session provided us an opportunity to get to know her even better and she made us feel so comfortable. Our wedding day had a 100% chance of rain and Dana never let that rattle her. She had at least two different backup plans for us and had the day of the wedding under control. We were able to go to both of our locations and Dana captured everything we wanted. Our second shooter (Mary Kim) was wonderful as well. Our final wedding images turned out so beautiful and we highly recommend Dana!!”

Stephanie | Union Missouri Senior Pictures

Stephanie’s Union Missouri senior pictures were some of the most meaningful senior portraits I have ever had the honor of creating. I first met Stephanie almost 5 years ago when I took her sister’s senior portraits. We met again at her family portrait session where we had lots of laughs (if you know this family you know they just carry joy in their pockets!).  This whole family is amazing. They are the best kind of people imaginable but there was something that stood out about Stephanie even then. She had a joyful spirit and an obviously loving heart.

 

Naturally, I kept up with Stephanie and her family on social media mostly she would post about softball and school activities. About two years ago she had what she thought was a sports related injury, but it turned into much more. Doctors discovered that this beautiful vibrant girl with the world at her feet had a rare type of bone cancer. The news devastated an entire community.  Her family took the news in stride (I have no doubt there was a lot of very real moments they didn’t share publically) they trusted the Lord, became even closer, and still shared Stephanie’s journey candidly. I will never forget the post they made after Steph started to lose her hair, it touched me so deeply. There are no words to describe the bravery in this seniors heart! So it didn’t at all surprise me when Steph shared that she wanted to capture this time in her life, as it is, in her senior pictures.

 

Stephanie, I have said it to you several times, cancer is not fair. I hate that it took away some of the moments in your young adult life, but I have such confidence that God is going to use this battle that you have so bravely fought and endured for something unfathomably amazing. I can’t wait to see what that is! Much love sweet Steph! You are a joyful and fierce warrior!

Casey and Josh | Faust Park Barn Engagement Photos

Faust Park Barn Engagement Photos

We had a perfect day for Casey and Josh’s Faust Park Barn engagement photos in beautiful Faust Park, Chesterfield, Missouri. Casey and Josh wanted to capture the laid back feeling of summer in their engagement pictures the tall green grass, worn white barn, and beautiful soft light certainly lent that amazing summer feeling to their session. Casey and Josh are adventurous and light-hearted, on top of that they are just filled with happiness when they are together, which made creating their images so much fun! I can’t wait to photograph their Forest Park Visitors Center wedding later this summer!

Z and Lana’s Piper Palm House Wedding

 

Piper Palm House Wedding Tower Grove Park

Lana and Z’s Piper Palm House wedding was perfect down to the last detail.

Z and Lana had a relaxing morning as they prepared for their walk down the aisle at my favorite hotel the Marriott Grand St. Louis. When I arrived I found Lana sipping champagne and lounging on the couch. Z was in true fashion laughing and hamming it up with his best friends.  What I found most noteworthy about Lana’s stunning bridal details were elegant and classic, just like Lana. She was truly a vision of a bride. Z was dapper in every way. He looked so handsome in his classic tuxedo with black

There were countless hand selected details for their wedding day but what I found most noteworthy about Lana’s stunning bridal details were elegant and classic, just like Lana. She was truly a vision of a bride. Z was dapper in every way. He looked so handsome in his classic tuxedo with black bow tie. These two were just straight out of a magazine in every way!By looking at all the beautiful details it’s easy to see this couple has great style

Two things were very important to this wonderful couple as they planned their wedding they knew they wanted something more intimate and centered around their loved ones who were traveling from all over the globe to celebrate their marriage and they wanted it to be a timeless and beautiful wedding to remember. Furthermore, they wanted an intimate event and a vibrant and fun celebration. I would say it seems like they planned the perfect wedding day.

About the Piper Palm House Venue

Lana and Z exchanged their vows at The Piper Palm House in beautiful Tower Grove Park. It was the perfect venue for their late summer wedding day and it helped Lana and Z create the timeless feel they wanted for their wedding day. Piper Palm House Weddings are absolutely gorgeous! It’s just undeniable.  The light in the greenhouse-style structure is a wedding photographer’s dream. The large windows spanning each side paired with the elegant white bricks and old world style window add the perfect amount of charm to any wedding.

After we managed to get a just a few amazing photos in Tower Grove Park we were off to Lana and Z’s unforgettable wedding reception at the Statler Ballroom in the Marriott Grand St. Louis. Floral designs from Marry Me Cottage the ballroom was transformed into a jaw-dropping masterpiece. Lana and Z took every moment to celebrate the night away, but we did manage to get out into the rain to create an epic end of the night shot. (That is always something I love to create!)

Congratulations again Lana and Z! Here is to too many amazing memories to count!
