Congrats to the new Mr and Mrs! Sophie and Luke tied the knot on January 20th, 2018. The Saturday they got married on was beyond perfect for Missouri weather. Most January days in the midwest are pretty cold or even has snow on the ground. Not on there wedding the weather hit a high of 56 degrees. The weather was so perfect that no one was wearing a winter jacket.
The day started with sophia getting ready at her best friends house alongside with her bridesmaids. The bridesmaids dresses were beautiful, each one was a different style of deep red. From lace to silk they were so unique! Tons of laughter and memories were discussed as Sophie got ready. As soon as Sophie slipped into her beautiful white dress the bridesmaids were all in awe. Sophia got a little teary eyes looking at herself in the mirror. The bridesmaids circled and exchanged a few kind words before they got ready to leave for the ceremony.
I met the girls at the ceremony location which was Quail Ridge in Wentzville, Mo. The ceremony was set up for the reception as well which was perfect to combine the ceremony and reception all together in one beautiful open well lit lodge. The theme was pinecones, burgundy and greenery. In the lodge the bride and groom set up an adorable hot cocoa station with chocolate mint to caramel sauce what a perfect touch for a January wedding. From the exchange of the vows Sophie and Luke shared a beautiful sand ceremony of burgundy and gold sand. From the sand ceremony they were announced as husband and wife with a big kiss and tons of smiles.
During the in between pictures the wedding party shared a few drinks and a ton of laughter as they celebrated Sophie and Luke. Everyone was so nice and so kind as they offered to help with anything they could help with for the reception change. From the groomsmen fixing sophia's dress for a funny image to the bridesmaids making Sophie laugh the wedding party was perfect! After about an hour of capturing the family and wedding party we focused on the bride and groom. The brides mom created a ton of the decorations and even made the wedding cake. Sophie was so in love with the buttercream cake her mom made. Sophie and Luke were so happy to be married and celebrating this day alongside friends and family. Take a look at the images below for a beautiful wedding in winter ! Congrats to Sophie and Luke!
