Eileen and Michael: St. Charles Wedding at the Hotel Baker

Who says that classy can’t be fun?

Michael and Eileen’s wedding proved that you can have a silly time at at an incredibly gorgeous venue. Even though rain kept everyone indoors, the Hotel Baker set up an incredible ceremony space filled with details galore. Luckily we had enough time to sneak a few pictures in the manicured garden, a fun hideaway spot along the waterway. The bride and groom were nothing but smiles beforehand; just see the picture below of a beaming Eileen being escorted by her father. As with many receptions, the speeches had me nearly in tears, as everyone was keen to talk about the incredible love held by the beautiful couple for each other. After a few tears were shed by family and friends, things got down to business on the illuminated dance floor. As you can see, the young and old alike put on their dancing shoes and celebrated the joyous occasion.

I am a sucker for details, as you can probably tell from my gallery. I absolutely loved that Eileen sewed a piece of her mother’s wedding dress into the hem of her own. What an incredible homage to her parent’s loving marriage! Thanks to Brittany Bekas Photography for inviting me to shoot this beautiful fall wedding in St. Charles.
