Wedding at the Top of the Gateway Arch!

Francis and I got to know each other when he came with us to Bonne Terre Mine while on leave and then wrote his Special Edition! from Iraq, and has been on just about every trip since he came home, two years ago today! I never would have kept up with this all these years without the help of him, and all our awesome friends, so of course we had to have a blog-worthy wedding.

Special thanks to Roy Lay, our roommate and officiant, Debra Crankshaw for being our photographer, her excellent assistant Brendan, our families who showed up on relatively short notice, and all your girls from Kentucky who made me feel super glamorous on my wedding day! ♥

To answer the most frequently asked question: Yes, it's  TOTALLY OK to get married at the top of the Arch! No reservation required, you just have to pay for the tickets to the top. All the employees were awesome and accommodating.

  6. Wow, I just love this wedding! It was a complete package of fun and enjoyment. The couple looks so cute. My sister is also going to tie wedding knot and we all are so busy in her wedding planning. I have got the responsibility to find some affordable NYC wedding venues for her. I wonder if anyone can help me.
