Mr & Mrs. Melanson [St. Louis Wedding Photographer]
Kayla and Adam are the type of couple whom upon meeting you instantly feel as if you’ve known them for years. They are fun loving, warm-hearted, goofy, sweet, genuine, wonderful and 10,000 other amazing adjectives. And that goes for their families, too. Mia and Matt, Kayla’s parents, made us feel like family from start to finish. When Kayla and Mia came in for a consultation, I was reminded how lucky I am to have a job where I meet such great people over and over. Truthfully, most grooms aren’t too pumped about engagement pictures. But, I’m pretty sure the moment we won over Adam was when I told him it was cool if he listened to the Kentucky game on his phone while photographing them at Bush Stadium. We did schedule the engagement session on a pretty big game day – whoops! And even though his team was on, his eyes were on Kayla the whole time. It’s easy to see how smitten he is with her and how much he truly cares about making sure she’s happy. And Kayla cares right back – So much so that their wedding colors were blue and white, UK colors.
The wedding day was beautiful. Kayla envisioned a winter wonderland and that is exactly what she got. The ceremony and ballroom looked like something out of a magazine or maybe even a fairly tale – it was perfect. The moment Adam saw Kayla coming down the isle was honestly pure joy – I turned for a moment to capture his face and couldn’t help but smile. It was impossible to be anything but happy in the presence of so much love. I even found myself tearing up a few times before it was all over! It was truly an incredible day with some of the sweetest people
Kayla and Adam, Thank you for letting us be a part of it all! I know Amy and I feel like we’ve gained two really great friends.You two have a lifetime of happiness ahead of you and I can only hope you will cherish these photographs for years to come. Congratulations!!!!!!:)
