destination wedding

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!

Maegan + Zac

October 6th we traveled to Rolla Missouri for a beautiful country inspired wedding. Maegan and Zac tied the knot in this beautiful barn where there ceremony and reception was held. Maegan had a brand new pair of cowboy boots she was so excited to wear. The bridesmaids wore burgundy dresses and the florals were gorgeous vibrant Burgundy and tons of greenery. There was a big storm rolling in when we were in between pictures all you could see was dark cloud and lightning rolling in. Right after we were finished with pictures it started down pouring. The weather could not hold off more perfect. During the reception there was amazing barbecue for the dinner and cake pops and cake for desert. During the cake cutting Maegan had a food fight and it was hilarious! The rest of the night everyone danced away to country music which fit the country theme wedding perfectly! Wishing Maegan and Zac a lifetime of happiness! Congrats to Maegan and Zac!

Lindsey + Kenny

June 2nd Lindsey and Kenny tied the knot at Sunset Bluffs in Washington, Missouri. The venue was a dream. From white sand to a beautiful cliff that overlooks the venue. 

The day started with Lindsey and her bridesmaids getting ready upstairs at Sunset Bluffs. The room was huge with tons of natural light. The corner of the room tucked a private area for make up artist and hair stylist. There were huge mirrors with make up lights built in already. The girls sipped on mimosas and shared memories while they all got ready. Shortly after Kenny and the groomsmen arrive. There is a room downstairs for the guys to get ready in. The weather was raining on and off but luckily Sunset Bluffs has a huge indoor area with tons of huge windows allowing a ton of natural light to flow through the entire venue. After everyone was ready Lindsey wanted a first look with her father. We had Lindsey's father facing his back to this huge staircase, that way when Lindsey came down the steps we could snap some creative shots and angles. The first look with her dad was so precious! There was not a dry eye. After the first look it was time for the ceremony. The weather was an overcast with the sun just barely shinning through we could not have asked for better lighting. The ceremony was beautiful ! The pastor was Lindsey's pastor since she was a child making the ceremony very sentimental. My second photographer went up on the cliff at Sunset Bluffs to snap some wide angle shots of the ceremony which are so cool! Right when Lindsey and Kenny shared their first kiss as Mr and Mrs Kenny dipped her before they exchanged their first kiss which was the cutest!

Following the ceremony we snapped the wedding party and bride and groom portraits. We had so much fun from laughing to all the groomsmen picking up Lindsey for a photo. After the in between pictures followed the reception. The one thing I love about outside summer weddings is it is still light outside until making for good natural light photos. Lindsey and Kenny entered the reception wearing handcuffs as Kenny's profession is in law enforcement. The reception was so much fun from games to speeches. The wedding of Kenny and Linsey was a beautiful outside summer wedding! Congrats to Kenny and Lindsey!
