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!
