Courtney and Joe eloped on a beautiful fall day in October. These two had to cancel their big wedding that was supposed to be in Summer of 2020, but they didn’t let that stop them from getting married! I absolutely love that they chose an elopement at Oak Knoll Park in St. Louis! And of course I love even more that they allowed me the honor of getting to capture their special day for them!
Their first look was so very sweet with tears included. The reaction to the two of them seeing each other was so heart warming, and of course I already had tears and goosebumps behind my camera! Since they eloped, their ceremony was very unique in the fact that that it was very small and intimate. Their parents and Courtney’s son Lucas were the only guests in attendance, which to me makes the day even more special! I had more tears and goosebumps when Courtney and Joe said their vows and exchanged their rings to each other, it was truly so heartfelt and beautiful to witness the two of them get married! There was truly so much love all around!
This day was like an enchanted fairy tale, I only wish it was longer! Courtney & Joe, thank you so much for allowing me the huge honor of documenting this incredibly special day in your life! I hope these photos forever transport you back to how you felt on your wedding day. Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Francke!! ❤️❤️
