Mr & Mrs Arends, Wedding Day Ashland, Missouri

Weddings 11 . 7 . 19

Congratulations to Riley and Lane! I have been looking forward to Riley and Lane’s wedding for the past year. I have worked with Riley before and knew their family. They are a wonderful bunch and I knew her wedding day would be beautiful and special. Lane completes her, and they have mutual adoration for each other.  I couldn’t be happier for these two!

They held their ceremony and reception at Riley’s parents’ farm. It is a gorgeous property with a large lake and horse barn. Their ceremony was at the lake and then guests walked to the barn and tented area for the cocktail hour and reception. The weather was non-cooperative for their day, but that didn’t get in their way of having a good time and enjoying every moment. Plus, rain on your wedding day just means good luck :)

I am so very grateful for this couple, I found out I was pregnant and due 3 days after their wedding date. I enlisted a dear friend and another amazing photographer Sarah Beth Photography. Having her there was amazing and a great piece of mind for everyone. However, I did shoot the wedding and lasted throughout the evening at 40 weeks pregnant! I was so happy I got to be apart of the day!

Thank you for allowing me to document your beautiful wedding. Many wishes and blessing for your new marriage.

Mr & Mrs Parker, Wedding Day The Millbottom Jefferson City, Missouri

Weddings 9 . 5 . 19

Congrats to Liz & Kyle! I don’t even know where to start with this beautiful day! Liz and Kyle are the sweetest, the way they look at each with adoration is a testament to their relationship. I met Liz at her cousins wedding a few years ago, where she was the maid of honor. I loved her bubbly personality and I think she has the most amazing hair! Ha! In all seriousness, I was so excited when they contacted me about photographing their wedding. To work with their family again was a complete honor and privilege. I knew the day would be beautiful and full of love.

She had an amazing line up of vendors to help with this special day. From the decor to locations everything was perfect. After getting ready at her parents home, they held their wedding ceremony at Immaculate Conception Church in Jefferson City. After the ceremony, we went to the family farm house for pictures. This home was her grandma’s and holds lots of special childhood memories. They even waded the creek together she used to frequent when she was a child.

After a little trolley fun downtown, the couple and friends arrived at the Millbottom for the reception. Theresa Heckman, once again, created a beautiful space for all the reception festivities! One of my favorite parts of the evening, was her Dad’s toast. I don’t think many had a dry eye. After having 3 older boys, Liz is his little girl. Lots of great memories and highlights from this wedding, as you scroll, check out those adorable flower girls and amazing florals by Sugarberry Blooms!

Wishing you many years of health and happiness, thanks for allowing me to be apart of this day!

Mr & Mrs Littrell, Wedding Day Simmons Stables Mexico, Missouri

Weddings 7 . 23 . 19

An enormous CONGRATS to Clayton and Courtney! I knew this was going to be a joy-filled day and it did not disappoint. I can’t pinpoint the best part of the day…. Sweet letters and gifts, excited friends and family, best first look ever, happy tears, sweet toasts, choreographed father/daughter dance….It was all perfect! Also, Courtney,  she was a vision. The epitome of a classic bride. She is also a very talented lady, she did her own invitations and arranged all of the bouquets!

The girls started off at The Strand Salon for hair and make-up before making their way to the Newman Center for their ceremony. Once everyone was dressed and ready, Clayton and Courtney exchanged sweet notes and gifts before their first look. We went to Mizzou campus for their first look. It was one of the best ever, Clayton’s expression was priceless! After their ceremony, everyone went to Mexico for the reception. Simmon’s Stables has rich history in the community and Clayton’s mom was part of the preservation team to restore it back to its original glory. It was a neat location for the reception and held strong meaning for the family.

I am so happy for these two as they start their lives together, thanks for allowing me to be apart of this wonderful day. I am beyond happy to have met this sweet couple and wish them all life’s greatest blessings!

Mr & Mrs Bax – Vintage Barn Wedding Jefferson City, Missouri

Weddings 7 . 11 . 19

Congrats to David & Sydney! It was so awesome to photograph this beautiful wedding day with such a sweet couple. It was a joyful day for family and friends! I knew from the moment I met Sydney their wedding would be a blast! She was laid back and simply excited to start their next chapter together. Also, can we say COLOR! I love pastels and neutrals, but I am loving the bright orange in this wedding! I hope to see more color in 2019!

Their ceremony was held at Immaculate Conception Church in Jefferson City,  Missouri and their reception was held at the bride’s family farm. After the ceremony, the couple and bridal party made their way over to Bar Vino for a few celebration drinks before heading to the reception.

They used multi-colored florals and decorated with clementines throughout their wedding day.  Sydney’s dress was so unique and fun to photograph, it was perfect for her rustic outdoor reception. There was a old barn on the property that Sydney’s parent’s renovated into the perfect wedding reception venue. Dancing, lots of laughs, and a few tears made this day overwhelming perfect. Oh, and an amazing sunset!

I am ecstatic for these two to share their life together and appreciative of the opportunity to be apart of a wonderful day. Much love and many blessings to the Bax family!

Mr & Mrs Kirchgessner – Blue Bell Farm Fayette, Missouri

Weddings 6 . 28 . 19

Oh, how I love these two. I knew the first time I met them that they were going to be an awesome couple to work with. They have something special…. faith, family, and amazing friends! Their marriage will no doubt have many blessings. I should definitely mention the pup of honor, Ash. He is Craig’s dog and a very loyal companion. Craig’s only request was that we get Ash into as many photos as possible. It was quite easy since he never left the groom’s side! As you look through these photos, you will see a cute little grey pup in most photos!

I was so excited to get back out to Blue Bell Farm, one of my favorite venues in the mid-Missouri area! I love farm life and Blue Bell has a quaint, historic, and peaceful setting. I also spend way too much time trying to get their free roaming chickens and ducks in my photos :)

April got ready in the newly finished cottage located just outside of the barn. It is darling with many nice finishes. Their ceremony was held on the back deck that overlooks the lake. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed yard games, roaming the farm, and of course dinner. Storm clouds rolled in a right as we were finishing up portraits before Craig and April left for the evening. The two made a fast dash at sunset to head out on their first date as a married couple. Congrats to April & Craig, a pleasure to work with you and your family.
