September 21st Jake and Lindsay tied the know at a gorgeous winery located in Defiance, Missouri- Chandler Hill. This winery is not only of my favorite local wineries but the views are breathtaking. Jake and Lindsay had a first look in the vineyards it felt like something from a movie it was so beautiful. The ceremony and reception were all located at Chandler Hill. The ceremony was outside on the deck that over looked the vineyard. After the ceremony we captured the family portraits which led into the reception. Having enough time for the first look beforehand we were able to capture all the wedding party and images beforehand which was perfect for the sunset. Jake and Lindsay were having a blast from dance parties with their wedding party in the vineyard to driving a 4x4 for pictures. The reception was gorgeous. The rustic touch of high ceilings and wood work all throughout the inside of the venue. Fresh florals were on each table. The dance floor were Jake and Lindsay shared their first dance was outside under string lights which made it so acquaint for a fall wedding. Ending the night we all went outside for a sparkler exit. Wishing Jake and Lindsay many happy wishes! Congrats to Jake and Lindsay !!
September 15 Ashley and Justin said “ I do” in Saint Charles, Missouri. The two are quite perfect for each other. They have been together since they were teenagers and have two sweet boys Leo and Ellis. I have known Ashley and Justin for quite some time and when they asked me to capture their big day I was honored. From capturing Ellis birth to their engagement session! Ashley and Justin had their ceremony held at Old Stone Chapel and the reception at The Foundry Art Centre. During the in between pictures their were a bunch of old muscle cars that were sitting outside that we got lucky to snap pictures with! Some of Ashley and Justin’s favorite cars were there so we made sure to snap some pictures next to the cars! During the reception Ashley’s father played an old video of Ashley while the two danced for their father daughter dance. The dance and video was perfect and left everyone in tears. During the cake cutting Ashley and Justin literally had a cake fight CUTEST THING EVER. They were cracking up and cake was flying all over the place. The entire day was a dream and I am wishing Ashley and Justin a lifetime of happiness!! Congrats you two!!

I met Jake and Olivia in high school. Jake and Olivia have been together since high school days. It is always so sweet to see two people so in love who are high school sweethearts. The day started with Olivia and her girls getting ready at her parents home. They all sipped on mimosas while the maid of honors finished there speeches. The boys were at Jake’s parents home which is up the street from Olivia’s parents. The guys all were eating White Castle’s while they got ready for the big day.
Olivia and Jake tied the knot at The Old Peace Chapel in Defiance. The chapel was so quaint and flourished with tons of natural light. The reception was at Trigg banquet center. The reception was a huge party with tons of people on the dance floor from high school friends to family members. Congrats to Olivia + Jake!!
