Classic Spring Wedding at Separk Mansion: Emily and Anthony


May 1, 2019

Everything about Emily & Anthony’s spring wedding day at Separk Mansion was absolute perfection, from the gorgeous sunny weather to Emily’s perfect hair and makeup! I was so honored to be a part of such a special day!

We started the day with two super special first looks – one with Emily and her bridesmaids, and one with Emily and her dad! A few tears were definitely shed! Emily and her bridesmaids celebrated with some champagne, and oh my gosh, they were SUCH a fun group!!! 🙂

Meanwhile, the guys all got ready together at Separk and Anthony was such a dapper groom! I just love when grooms wear grey! Emily and Anthony opted not to do a First Look, but we were still able to get lots of gorgeous photos of their bridal party before the ceremony!

Their ceremony was SO sweet – Emily had tears in her eyes as she walked down the aisle with her father, and many guests did too. Their officiant shared a beautiful message about how Emily and Anthony just knew that they were the right one for each other, and that they were able to laugh and cry together. As they shared their first kiss as husband and wife, and joyfully walked down the aisle, everyone was cheering! 🙂

Just wait until you see their gorgeous just married portraits!!! Separk Mansion has the BEST locations for portraits, including their Rose Garden, Grand Staircase, and of course, my personal favorite the Black and White Room! 

Their first dance was SO sweet, and Emily’s dress from Hayden Olivia Bridal twirled so gorgeously!!! Everyone was ooh-ing and ahh-ing!

Roots Catering prepared a lovely meal (the mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese were obviously my favorite) and then STL Cake knocked it out of the park with their cake! Always so delicious!

The party continued with all of their family and friends, and Split Second Sound killed it! They partied all night and had a grand exit with beautiful sparklers outside on the front veranda!

We had the BEST time celebrating with them, and now they’re in Italy & Greece for their honeymoon!!!

Congratulations Emily & Anthony!
