St Louis Wedding Photography | Dustin + Amanda Turner

Brian greeted guests as they arrived with congratulatory handshakes and hugs. The ceremony was about to begin. Brian excused himself from conversation to gather his thoughts a few steps away from the artfully arranged garden. He paced in a rhythmic and pensive manner, rehearsing the heartfelt vow he was about to make. 

As Melissa walked down the aisle, everyone turned and then Brian saw his Bride for the first time…

The Japanese Garden at the St Louis Botanical Gardens served as the perfect backdrop for Brian + Melissa’s event. It enhanced the loving, natural and piquant flair of their day.

This ring bearer made family portraits way more fun!

Get ready for the cutest ring bearer & flower girl ever!

Then we hopped over to the St Louis City Garden for more fun and photos!

Thank you Brian + Melissa for letting us be part of your beautiful wedding. Hope you enjoy your honeymoon in the Virgin Islands!

xoxo Amanda
