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!

Savanah and Jared tied the knot on October 27th at Sunset Bluffs located in Washington, Missouri. The day started with Savanah and her girls getting ready at the venue. The venue has an open floor plan making it easy and relaxing for a bride and her bridesmaids to relax and get ready. After the girls were ready we captured pictures of a first look with Savanah and her father which left everyone with teary eyes. Savanah later exchanged presents that were handkerchiefs which were embroided with sweet notes for her Mother and Father. After the girls were finished getting ready the ceremony was shortly after, The ceremony was held outside on the lawn looking towards the bluff. The weather could not have been more perfect for a late October wedding. After the ceremony we captured family and the wedding party.

Savanah and Jared’s wedding day was beautiful and we are wishing them a lifelong happiness! Cheers!

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!!

Kim + Jeff

June 30th Kim and Jeff tied the knot at this super cute private lake called Innsbrook resort in Missouri. The lake is a private lake however you can get married at the resort area. The ceremony is held outside facing the lake and the reception is held inside in this cute rustic indoor venue. The colors of the wedding were beautiful, tiffany blue, greenery and pastel colors.

When we arrived at Innsbrook we started with detail shots and Kim getting into her beautiful dress. Kim's dress was seriously so beautiful ! There were rhinestones and gems on the dress that traced the straps on the front and back, I have never seen a dress like that before I seriously loved! Once Kim got into her dress we went outside to start capturing the bride and her tribe. The bridesmaids wore a tiffany blue long dress with navy blue Converse. Where Kim rocked white pearl Converse. Once we captured the bride and bridesmaids Kim and Jeff wanted to capture a first look. We placed Jeff with his back to Kim that way Kim could walk up to Jeff and tap on his shoulder for the first look. The first look was super cute! The wedding party wanted to stay to watch and Kim and Jeff were full of smiles. After the first look we captured the groom and groomsmen images. Let me first by saying this group had so much fun from literally picking Jeff up to one groomsmen having Jeff stand on his shoulder the pictures from this were priceless. After capturing all the wedding party, bride and groom portraits the ceremony was about to begin.

The ceremony started in the late afternoon. The sun was shinning and there was light refreshments such as a moscow mule drinks and lemon water. Kim and Jeff said the " I do's" right in front which over looked the lake. After the reception we snapped traditional family portraits. Kim and Jeff wanted to enjoy the cocktail hour as well as the full reception. Since we captured all the images beforehand Kim and Jeff went around and talked to each guest and hung out the rest of the night with their friends and family. We stayed until the end to capture the sparkler send off. Kim and Jeff shared a kiss as the new Mr and Mrs before leaving with the wedding party that night to continue the party! Congrats to Kim and Jeff!!
