A Sweet Focus Family Formal Guide



What an incredible William J Clinton Presidential Library Wedding of Steven and Anna!

Steven and Anna unknowingly lived right around the corner from each other in the same neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. A little cafe sat between their two apartments with great food. Steven is very outgoing and started talking to Anna one day while standing in line. He got her number and the rest was history!

The couple decided on a wedding in Anna’s hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas, and Steven’s family came in from Kentucky to join the celebration. My first meeting with the couple’s family the morning of the wedding met the perfect description of southern hospitality. Upon learning that I was from St. Louis, Anna’s mother offered me a place to stay without a second thought. This warmth and kindness was shown to me all throughout the wedding day by the endearing family and friends.

Steven and Anna chose to do a first look at the Christ Episcopal Church in the courtyard, followed by a small communion service for the couple and the bride’s parents. The wedding ceremony was conducted shortly after with the all the guests looking on.

The reception took place at the modern William J. Clinton Presidential Library. The sun was shining in while the couple took their first dance, creating a warm glow throughout the room. The details were gorgeous, the staff amazing, and the DJ had the Presidential Library rocking!
