Lorelei & Steve with DJ Jonathan Simpson
Lorelei and Steve were a treat for us to work with. They did their full mass Catholic ceremony at St. Louis Catholic Church with their reception following in the Clunan Center at St. Louis. Their wedding was the Saturday following Thanksgiving and it was the family affair you’d expect of a Thanksgiving weekend wedding.
After the mass was finished and the couple had been announced as husband and wife, their guests had an extremely easy commute from the Cathedral to the Clunan Center, located within the church. For anyone who hasn’t visited St. Louis or the Clunan Center, everything about this church is beautiful. From the tall ceilings and exposed brick in the cathedral, to the pristine hardwood floors and palate to compliment any wedding in the Clunan Center, St. Louis is stunning.
The couple decided to make their first dance the only formal wedding tradition during their entire reception. First dances as Mr. and Mrs. Are always a special time for the newlyweds and Steve and Lorelei did not want to miss out on this opportunity.
Lorelei’s brother, Greg, is a guitarist and was asked to play “In Spite of Ourselves” by John Prine during the reception with the help of 4 vocalists. We LOVE when couples bring their special family talents to the reception and were thrilled to make this happen for the Estermans. We were told that the performance would happen at an unspecified time during the reception, so pretty much whenever Greg felt ready! It was a beautiful performance and Lorelei and Steve will treasure it forever.
We are so very thankful to have been a part of Lorelei and Steve’s special day and wish them all the best in their lives as Mr. and Mrs. Esterman!
