Stephanie + Scott

Stephanie and Scott had a GLORIOUS wedding! Both Stephanie and Scott are huge fans of superheroes so much that they incorporated Marvel and superhero into their wedding day. The entire wedding was held at the beautiful Cedar Lake Cellars in Wright City, Missouri. Stephanie and the girls got ready in the bridal suite at Cedar Lake Cellars while Scott and the men got ready in the big red barn. The ceremony was outside on the big open patio next to the barn. Red was apart of the colors for their wedding which made the big red barn perfect for their big day! They had a ton of family from out of town that flew in for their big day. Right after the ceremony led into the reception which was filled with laughter and happy tears. The two mingled with friends and family and danced the night away. Congrats to Stephanie and Scott! GLORIOUS!!

Lindsay + Jake

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 !!

Peyton + Ethan

June 9th 2018 Ethan and Peyton tied the knot at a cute rock quarry tucked away in Blackwater, Missouri called Wildcliff weddings and events. The venue was a dream! From a quarry lake to a cave where you can get ready in. There were so many hidden gems with endless of photo opportunities.

The day started with Peyton and her bridesmaids getting ready inside the bridal cottage at Wildcliff. They shared tons of laughs with mimosas and laughed about Peyton's all 4 dogs being in the wedding. Peyton and her girls were having a blast ! Later on the groomsmen arrived where they hopped on this boat that you pull in the water that leads you into this acquaint cave. We all took the boat over and climbed this ladder that lead to this cave are, talk about a man cave! In this cave groomsmen hang out before the wedding ceremony. Trust me us photographers were amazed by this cave, it did not feel like the midwest! We snapped a few pictures in the cave of the groom and groomsmen while they shared cheers with beers. 

The Ceremony started at 3:00pm right on the main lawn facing the lake and cave talk about a beautiful scene! The sun was shinning and the weather was ideal for a June wedding! During the ceremony there was not a dry eye in sight. Peyton and Ethan read their vows which later went into a "planting a tree ceremony". Such a cool idea! Following the reception we gathered the wedding party for pictures and bridesmaids and groomsmen. The photo opportunities at Wildcliff can go on for days I could have spent all day photographing there !

After the pictures lead into the reception which was outside under beautiful string lights. A perfect summer wedding reception ! Every wedding member went around and spoke about the bride and groom which was a unique and cool idea! Each wedding party member shared the memories between the bride and groom. Later that night everyone danced under the string lights and danced the night away to a variety of music from country to hip hop! Congrats to Peyton and Ethan!!

Nashville styled shoot

Nashville is a city of dreams <3 From the city life to the urban restaurants, there is always something to do in Nashville. About two weeks ago I traveled to Nashville with my good friend's STL Glam Co. Earlier this month we planned a styled shoot for a wedding at a Drakewood Farms in Nashville. This venue is all but a dream. From a big rustic barn to a beautiful woodland ceremony area. There are so many areas at this venue that are so dreamy for your wedding. 

Ali and John were the models for this wedding styled shoot and they were absolutely perfect! We had so much fun getting to know them from popping champagne to twirling in the fields. These two are super adorable. Enjoy these images and if you ever visit Nashville for an event or wedding make sure you stop by Drakewood Farms. Thank you to all the vendors who made this styled shoot happen!
