Colorful Saint Louis Jewel Box Wedding | Kayla+Brett

Kayla and Brett were married in the fall of 2016 and now that it’s 29 degrees and cold, I needed some bright, colorful reminders of warmth and sunshine. I loved that Kayla handmade all of the beautiful  artwork, signs, decor, and using bright pops of color as her inspiration. What will stick with me most was the moment Kayla turned to leave the hotel room once she was ready and her twin comforted their mom, who had just started crying happy tears. Now that I am a mother myself, I have an entirely new appreciation on what it means to be a parent and watch your baby get dressed and ready for her wedding. What a milestone it is for them as well. So be gentle with your parents as you’re planning your wedding. It is of course your wedding day but it is such a special day for them as well. Here are some of my favorite images from their beautiful day.
