ALIVE Wedding Volume II, Issue I: A Couple Falls For Each Other, Then St. Louis
What began as a casual fishing trip ended up becoming much more for Jacob Baker and Hadley Davis Baker. Jacob invited a few friends to his parents’ home and included Hadley, thinking little of it. By the end of the night, they were holding hands under the stars. Neither had been seeking out romance, but they recognized that it was there, and it was special.
The Bakers have a double love story: Jacob had no desire to live in St. Louis, but it was where Hadley found a career. He had previously pledged to move wherever she found work, and was true to his word. Once there, they both fell for the city, together. After their engagement, Jacob, now St. Louis-smitten, found and secured local vendors that he and Hadley loved, favoring those on Cherokee Street. The result? Traditions fell away, and what remained was true to them and their city.
