I shot the wedding of Jamie Sellers and Tom Wurm on August 5, 2011 in my hometown of St. Louis, MO. I first met Jamie at my humongous family reunion last fall in Fulton, MO—she was dating my cousin Tom at the time. (One of the perks of being part of the Wurm family is that I meet cousins and second cousins and third cousins whenever we have these reunions—Tom is the nephew of my Grandma Ann, who was one of fourteen kids!)
Jamie and Tom got married at Peace Lutheran Church and had their reception at Orlando Gardens in St. Louis. Their wedding day included events spread across Greater St. Louis, including an artsy photo shoot at Laumeier Sculpture Park. The gals got ready at the fancy Ritz Carlton hotel in downtown Clayton, which was one of my favorite points of the wedding, because this location is absolutely gorgeous. We took group photos on the lobby’s chandelier-clad staircase, which felt like something straight out of the Academy Awards.
