Windows on Washington Wedding by Carretto Studio Photography

A sleek and modern wedding in St. Louis, MO

Kristen and Mickey’s spring wedding was a sophisticated and sleek celebration that incorporated two cities, Manhattan (where they met and currently live) and St. Louis (Kristen’s hometown). Their ceremony was at Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis, followed by a Manhattan-themed reception at Windows on Washington. Some of their New York touches were black and white cookies, NYC neighborhood names on the table markers and a signature drink – the Manhattan. Another personal reception touch was photos of Kristen and Mickey as children, denoting the men’s and women’s washrooms. Carretto Studio Photography captured every detail!

When Mickey and I got engaged we sat down and decided we wanted 3 things for our wedding day: to be surrounded by as many of our friends and family as possible, to have a great band and lots and lots of dancing, and I think we succeeded! I also wanted to add in personal touches throughout the day, like having my friend since high school, Pastor Jud Brooks, officiate the ceremony and our flower girl carry the same basket I carried down the aisle at my parent’s wedding. I also wore the tennis bracelet my step-dad gave my mom on their wedding day, secured a locket with my late Grandma Ruth’s photo in it to my bouquet and carried one of her handkerchiefs. Yes, it rained on our wedding day, but I can assure you Mickey and I hardly noticed. - Kristen
