There is something incredibly special about the feeling you get when you are around Pamela and Max. It is almost like their love for each other is a fire that you want to warm your hands by. Simply put, their love radiates.
These two are young, and they haven’t had the easiest of roads. Their story is bittersweet, but we know this is one relationship that is going to last. They both lost their Fathers young, and it is almost if God already knew they were going to need each other in this life.
Along with their closest family and friends, Pamela and Max exchanged their vows under the beautiful arbor of The Weingarten in Belleville, IL. They looked into each other’s eyes as they promised to cherish their union, and spend every good and bad moment of their futures in the only way possible for them…together.
It was a rainy morning in Belleville, Illinois at the Weingarten. Pamela prepared for her big day in the bridal suite with Max’s Mom and two sisters.
Pamela chose beautiful wedding day details to showcase her love for Max, her family, and her late Father. Oh, and when your wedding coincides with the St. Louis Blues winning the Stanley Cup…you give the boys a wink and a nod in your bouquet.
Pamela was surrounded by her nearest and dearest family members before her first glance with Max. It was an honor to witness the amount of love that surrounded her.
Pamela and Max debated on doing a first glance before they said their vows, and we are so glad they did. Their intimate moment together was a highlight of their wedding day.
The rain cleared just in time for some amazing creative photos. When the bride asked if I minded shooting in the winery cemetery my creative little heart almost burst! Nailed it!
The Weingarten’s beautiful green landscape was the perfect setting for their intimate ceremony. Guests smiled underneath the trees as these two said their I Do’s.
Their reception was held in the Barn and it was the perfect backdrop for an evening of celebrating and dancing.
The toasts were intimate, and the cake smash was hilarious. Everything about their wedding celebration felt authentic and memorable.
Their guests enjoyed sipping on Sangria, delicious food, and a packed dance floor the entire night. Pamela and Max wouldn’t change a thing about their wedding day. Love was definitely in the air.
