Lexie + Chris | Windows on Washington in St. Louis, MO

Lexie and Chris’s Windows on Washington wedding was one for the books! The whole day was covered in personalized details, from the the donut bar for dessert to the nod to their Youtube channel as well as custom masks! Lexie and her bridesmaids got ready at the bridal suite in Marriott St. Louis Grand before her first look with Chris, then we headed to the Covenant Blu neighborhood (AKA the abandoned church covered in ivory) in St. Louis for some wedding party photos before it was time for the ceremony!

THE BRIDE’S FAVORITE PART OF THE WEDDING DAY

“I was very pleased with the way [the flowers and greenery] all came together in the end. I basically told Flowers and Weeds to create mostly green bouquets and they did the rest. They were all beautiful and I was surprised at how much I loved them.”

ADVICE FOR NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES FROM THE BRIDE

“Take it day by day. Enjoy each other and the planning. You will argue and ladies, you will be annoyed and think you are the only one doing anything, it’s normal. It will all be worth it in the end and you will love each other more than you thought possible.”
