A Fabulous Fall Wedding in St. Louis

Brittany & Michael - October 27, 2017


Their Love Story

Brittany & Michael's love story started in college in a history of rock and roll music class. (Sounds fun, right?) Michael caught Brittany's attention early on, she in the front row and him in the back. They would chat on class breaks here and there, and Brittany admits she was definitely making up reasons to talk to him! Brittany thought he was something special, but had never caught his name. One day when attendance was called she wrote down his name and (in his words) sent him a creepy Facebook message saying hello. 

Brittany found out Michael was in a serious relationship, and nothing more came out of their chats than a friendship. (But in Brittany's words, he did let her cheat off him on the final. Definitely a story to save for their children one day!)

Years later Michael was no longer in a relationship and reached out to Brittany, but this time the timing was bad for her. The two knew there was a connection, but it needed more time. Once Brittany was no longer in a relationship the two FINALLY went out on their first date! Brittany claims she has never had so much fun and laugher on a date. They have been inseparable ever since and the two have grown even closer over the last six years. 

The Proposal

On an undoubtedly romantic evening, Michael surprised Brittany with a carriage ride around downtown St. Louis at Christmas time and surprised her down on one knee. She said yes and couldn't wait to be his wife! 


Wedding Day Details

Brittany and Michael got married on a very chilly October day here at Haue Valley, but you would never know it. They are stunningly beautiful at 40 degrees! The two selected many recommended vendors from Haue Valley's list including Cieara Ruess Photography, Applause Weddings, Pappy's Smokehouse, and It's Easy as Pie. The day went off without a hitch and we are so excited to share these beautiful moments with you!

Brittany was one of our brides that came to almost every Haue Valley open house (a definite benefit to our couples as she had the opportunity to visualize their day many times in person prior to the wedding), and she is definitely one we already miss!
