REAL WEDDING | Fall Missouri Wedding at The Conservatory | Zoe Life Photography

Julia and Ethan had a sweet wedding ceremony at The Conservatory in the heart of St. Charles, Missouri on a beautiful day in October. The bride’s grandfather walked her down the aisle (so sweet), and Julia wore her grandmother’s necklace. I loved all the fall colors of deep red of the bridesmaids’ dresses, and Julia’s bouquet had all the fall colors – from oranges to darker reds. So perfect for this lovely couple! And Julia’s Stella York wedding dress was AMAZING!

Julia & Ethan


How did the two of you meet? We met while both of us were working at starbucks.

Describe your wedding flowers:
Champagne roses, Black Pearl roses, orange calla lilies.

Memories and Stories about the Day:
The whole day was beautiful! The best thing was sharing it with the ones we love. Both women and men that made up the wedding party live out of state, so it was especially wonderful to celebrate with them!

Your first dance song:
Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop- Landon Pigg

The thing that we would have done differently is? 
I would do so much more planning ahead of time! Anything that can be done early, be sure to do it when you have time! Don’t count on having an insane amount of time the week before the wedding, even if you take time off work.

Our favorite detail of the wedding was:
The Conservatory and the beautiful photos Zoe Life Photography took! (and getting to marry the love of our lives!)

Your advice for other plus size brides:
you are BEAUTIFUL! make sure you always remember that.

Three adjectives that describe the day: magical, gorgeous, crazy!

What has surprised you most during the first few months of marriage?
It was definitely a surprise that even after the wedding, time has gone by so fast. I guess that’s what happens!
