Niky & Sean’s Intimate Backyard wedding and Mad Art Gallery reception

Niky and Sean decided to have a backyard wedding at their home in the Historic Soulard neighborhood of St. Louis, MO. It was an intimate affair with only close relatives and friends. Afterwards they held a larger reception at Mad Art Gallery just down the street. Mad Art is a former police station turned art gallery and event venue and it’s fab!

Niky’s dress. What can I say? It was GORGEOUS and perfect for her. Not many brides choose to wear a black formal gown and she totally rocked it. Check out those fab shoes too! St. Louis wedding
