Industrial Fall St Louis Wedding at The Foundry Art Centre – Taryn & Andrew

Taryn & Andrew’s industrial, fall St Louis wedding just outside of historic St Charles was filled with gut-busting laughter, pure joy, and personalized details that nodded back to the couple’s favorite TV Show, The Office.

“…the happiest feeling he didn’t know he was missing…”

With The Office theme song for their pronouncement, Jim & Pam’s wedding theme and quotes sprinkled throughout the wedding party toasts, the table decor and even the desserts, these two celebrated whole-heartedly with their friends and family and we just couldn’t get enough!

But also…did you see it?
The quieter moments of tears brimming over from everyone around the room during Dad’s toast.
The speechlessness Taryn had when she saw the custom cookie table & overall reception – everything better than she had even imagined.
The way Andrew held his new wife in his arms – the happiest feeling he didn’t know he was missing.

We did. And it was nothing short of touching.

Friends, enjoy these too-many-favorites from Taryn & Andrew’s special day and leave some love for them in the comments!

Dear Taryn & Andrew —
What can we say? You two are some of the sweetest and most contagiously joyful people we’ve met and celebrated with! If there was a sound track to your wedding day it would the St Louis Blues GOAL horn, Andrew’s laughter, “That’s what she said” quotes on repeat. Honestly – can it get any more fun and personal than that?! Thank you for trusting us with your love story and inviting us into all your special moments. We have been honored to journey alongside & be co-celebrators-throw-the-confetti-people with you! And hey, the best is yet to come…
Hugs and back slaps all around!
–Tara & Stephen
