Natalie + Dillon

January 5th Natalie and Dillon tied the knot during the winter season. Natalie and Dillon started their day by getting ready at the Piazza Messina in the heart of Cottleville, Missouri. The ceremony was held at a Lutheran church in Saint Charles. There were 8 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen in the party from family to best friends from high school. The colors were perfect from a rich gray to dusty rose bridesmaids dresses. Each bridesmaid had baby’s breath bouquets. Natalies bouquet was full or greenery and white roses. For pictures we went to New Town Saint Charles from the beautiful chapel to the lake front. Right before we left for the reception we went to Padavan’s NY Pizza & Pinball bar for more pictures. From arcade games to shots the wedding party had a blast. The reception was held later at The Piazza Messina. This lovely venue is brand new to the area and is gorgeous! From the open floor plan to the open bar area. Natalie and Dillon celebrated with many friends and family. Cheers to the Natalie and Dillon!

Lindsey + Danny

Baker wedding (235 of 850).jpg

November 3rd our dear friend’s tied the knot at Noboleis Vineyards in Augusta, Missouri. The day was gorgeous! The girls rented a home down the street to get ready while everyone was loving on Lindsey and Danny’s baby Huxley. Once the girls were ready it was time for the first look with the bride and groom. Lindsey and Danny had there first look near these two big wooden doors that lead into the vineyards. Danny and Lindsey make a perfect match together. They could not stop smiling and just loving one another during their pictures. After the first look the ceremony begun. The weather was just perfect to have an outside ceremony. Lindsey was walked down by her brother and father before giving Lindsey away. During the ceremony they exchanged a sand ceremony and also gave each mother a rose. After the ceremony led right into the reception. Their reception was epic! The toasts were perfect with a mixture of funny things but also words from the heart. During the first dance no one had a clue what Lindsey and Danny were about to pull! They went to classes to learn a dance together to share in front of everyone. Danny was twirling Lindsey and flipping her over her head it was like a scene in “ Dirty Dancing.” The reception was beautiful and ended with everyone sipping on the yummy wine and dancing to music. Congrats to Lindsey and Danny we are wishing you a lifetime of happiness.

Meredith + David

June 9th 2018 Meredith and David tied the knot in Saint Louis, Missouri. The day started with Meredith and her bridesmaids getting ready before heading to the church. Meredith and David had their ceremony held at Journey Hanley Road Church in Saint Louis. They were surrounded with family and friends. The church was beautiful with white ceilings and walls and a huge open space. After the Ceremony we met at Forest Park for wedding party and bride and groom portraits. The weather was perfect for a June wedding in the midwest warm and sunny! We started with portraits of Meredith and David. From piggy back rides to grabbing Limelike bikes for a picture. Following bride and groom images was time for the wedding party. We had a blast from cheers to tons of laughs. After capturing pictures at Forest Park we head downtown to the reception. The reception was held at The Willow downtown. The Willow is beyond gorgeous with a huge open space and windows all around the venue to flow in the natural light. Meredith and David had a taco bar for the food choice which was amazing and super yummy! The rest of the night Meredith and David danced the night away with friends and family. Congrats to the Meredith and David !!

Tiffani + Andrew

Congrats to Tiffani and Andrew! These two tied the knot on May 12th at Andrew's family property. I first saw the location when I captured Tiffani's boudoir images there. I was taken away! The house was beautiful ! The home is something you see in a magazine, a beautiful cabin style home. The home has so many hidden gems such as a huge master bedroom with a deck and a beautiful well lit kitchen with a  big island. I arrived the morning of the wedding to start capturing getting ready images. I met all the bridesmaids and groomsmen and started capturing the details. Tiffani's dress was a beautiful lace dress with sparkles and a strapless top. I hung her dress outside on this ledge right under this archway. I wanted to incorporate the home with her beautiful dress. After the details I    captured the bridesmaids getting ready. The girls were sharing memories of Tiffani and Andrew and chatting about the wedding day. After the girls were all ready it was time to get Tiffani in her white dress. We all went out onto the deck because the lighting was perfect. We captured some images of Tiffani and her bridesmaids than her mom and Andrew's mom. There were so many happy tears shed that there was not a dry eye. Tiffani gave her maid of honor a beautiful Alex an Ani bracelet and necklaces for the bridesmaids. During that time Andrew and the groomsmen were outside in the front of the home chatting on the deck and patiently waiting for the ceremony.

The ceremony was in the front yard of the home where there was a huge deck for all the bridesmaids and groomsmen to stand on during the ceremony. The wedding party walked through the side yard which led to the front of the home. During the ceremony Tiffani and Andrew had a sand ceremony than shared their first kiss. We captured all the pictures on the property since there were so many photo opportunity locations. When it was time to take the pictures of Tiffani and Andrew we went to this hidden location on the property it was a cleared out trail area with beautiful trees. There was a huge field with tall grass that was beyond perfect for pictures. After the pictures it was time for dinner than the reception. The deck was huge, so huge that there was enough room for the caterers and the food. I do not think I will ever stop talking about how beautiful the deck was. 

The reception was also on the property's front yard right near where the ceremony was held. There was a huge white tent that blocked the sun and the heat. There was a center area cleared for a dance floor. The reception was so much fun from dancing to Spice Girls to Tiffani and Andrew dancing with everyone during the dollar dance. Wishing Andrew and Tiffani a lifelong marriage full of happiness!
