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!

October 19th 2018 Lexie + Ryan tied the knot at the beautiful Stone House Of Saint Charles. Met Lexie and her sister a few years back so when Lexie got engaged it was an honor to capture her engagement and wedding day. Their wedding day felt like a fairytale. The girls and guys all got ready at the Stone House. The guys got ready in the grooms quarter which had a pool table and enough room to have everyone hang out. Lexie and her girls got ready in the house itself. This beautiful updated historic home. Lexie’s sister did her hair and make up which made a perfect touch for her wedding day. After the girls and guys got ready the ceremony was next. The ceremony was held outside in front of the Stone House. The weather was perfect. Lexie and Ryan were surrounded by friends and family. Not a dry eye was in sight. The wedding party was a blast we cheered where Lexie’s dad photo bombed and jumped in. Needless to say they were a fun bunch! Lexie and Ryan swung on this giant swing and were laughing so much their love shows in every image. Following the pictures was the reception. The reception was held in this huge elegant barn that is new to Stone House. The person that announced each couple into the reception welcomed the Blues Hockey team player onto the ice as a career, that was pretty cool to hear! Lexie and Ryan danced the night away with friends and family. Cheers to Lexie and Ryan!

Ashley + Justin

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!!
