Mr & Mrs Eiken – Kempker’s Back 40 Jefferson City, Missouri

Weddings 2 . 1 . 19

Best. Day. Ever. The best part about this wedding was that I got to meet Katie and Jared, whom I adore. This intimate ceremony and backyard reception was the best, I think every guest who attended is still talking about how amazing this day was. I can honestly say, I have never laughed so hard while documenting a wedding (Katie is a spicy lady), I felt like part of the family all day and I love the fun moments I can document when there is that comfort level. I appreciate a wedding that is totally centered around the couple and what they want. Also, a bride that wants photos with donkeys, goats, and all the furry things is up my alley! This day was pure fun and joy for all, one I will never forget. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Eiken, so happy to be apart of your first chapter. XOXO

Mr & Mrs Campbell – Firestone Baars Chapel and Missouri Country Club Columbia, Missouri

Weddings 9 . 25 . 18

I just can’t with these two, they are so perfect! Plus, they adore each other, it is one of the sweetest things to witness. It also appears that they walked straight out of a fashion magazine so that always makes things easy ;) But seriously, how gorgeous is this couple!? They have such a strong bond, I know it will take them through a lifetime. Their wedding day was beautiful, both Stephen and Olivia were calm and ready for their ceremony. They held their first look was held on Mizzou campus where they exchanged vows they wrote for each other. From there it was off to the ceremony at Stephen’s College Firestone Baars Chapel.

After their ceremony, guests headed over to the Country Club of Missouri to enjoy dinner and good company. After dinner, dancing proceeded as well as cake and Andy’s forzen custard! I wish these two a lifetime of love and happiness, I can’t wait to see where the adventure will take them. Congrats Stephen and Olivia, and thank you for giving me the pleasure to photograph your beautiful day.
