July 7th Sydney and Ray tied the knot in Wentzville, MO. The wedding was held in a super cute church located in the heart of Wentzville. During the ceremony Sydney and Ray had a cross ceremony which they combined two crosses. I loved this idea so much! There was not a dry eye in sight. The two are so in love and they could not stop smiling at one another during the ceremony.
After the ceremony we captured family pictures at the alter and a few of Sydney and Ray in the church. Once we left the church we went to the reception area to capture wedding party images. The reception was held at Quail Ridge Lodge located in Wentzville, MO. The Lodge has a huge park and gazebo area. We captured pictures near the gazebo and in front of this beautiful tree line. Ray's family owns an antique store located in Warrenton, MO. His family brought a vintage settee for pictures ! I loved the idea so much! We captured the wedding party and bride and groom portraits right before the reception. The reception started and the dancing and fun began! Sydney and Ray shared a toast of Champagne in the champagne flute that was passed down from her family! There is no doubt that Ray and Sydney are perfect for one another! I loved capturing this wedding! The summer blush colors and fresh greenery! Take a look below at this beautiful summer wedding!
