Ritz Carlton St. Louis Wedding – Anne Canon Photography

I had the incredible opportunity to photograph Katie and Joel’s summer wedding at the stunning Ritz Carlton in St. Louis, Missouri. This intimate celebration brought together their closest family and friends in a day filled with love and joy. The ceremony took place in the breathtaking conservatory, which later transformed into a magical reception venue. The beautiful shades of pink in the floral arrangements perfectly contrasted with the shades of blue that the wedding party wore, creating a visually striking and elegant atmosphere. Join me as I relive the unforgettable moments I captured on this special day.

The Ritz Carlton in St. Louis provided an enchanting backdrop for Katie and Joel’s wedding. The conservatory, with its abundance of greenery and cascading natural light, served as the perfect setting for their ceremony. The air was filled with a sense of anticipation as loved ones gathered, eagerly awaiting the couple’s exchange of vows.

The floral arrangements were a sight to behold, with delicate blooms in various shades of pink. The soft and romantic hues perfectly complemented the overall aesthetic of the day, adding a touch of elegance to every corner of the venue. The arrangements effortlessly blended with the natural beauty of the conservatory, enhancing the enchanting ambiance.

As Katie walked down the aisle, all eyes were on her radiant smile. The tender emotions were palpable as she and Joel exchanged their heartfelt vows, surrounded by their loved ones. The conservatory provided a serene and magical backdrop as the couple professed their love and commitment to one another, and I had the privilege of capturing these precious moments that would be cherished for a lifetime.

After exchanging heartfelt vows, Katie and Joel, accompanied by their joyful wedding party, made their way to Shaw Park to create lasting memories through captivating portraits. This serene transition from the ceremony to the park allowed them to continue their celebration surrounded by nature’s tranquility, capturing the essence of their love amidst the enchanting backdrop of Shaw Park’s picturesque landscapes.


While Guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the courtyard the conservatory underwent a seamless transformation into a captivating reception space. The elegant tables, adorned with the stunning floral arrangements, set the stage for an unforgettable evening. The soft pink hues blended with the shades of blue worn by the wedding party, creating a visually captivating and cohesive atmosphere that delighted all who attended.

Throughout the day, I moved discreetly, capturing candid moments of joy, love, and celebration. From the heartfelt speeches to the energetic dancing, every moment was carefully documented to create a timeless visual narrative. The genuine smiles, happy tears, and shared laughter were frozen in time, ensuring that Katie and Joel could relive the magic of their wedding day for years to come.
