Illinois wedding

Abbey + Seth {Oran, Missouri || 10.20.18}

Mr. + Mrs. Griffin

There's just something about a small town wedding that always warms my heart. Surrounded by the sweetest of friends and family, Abbey + Seth's small town wedding was just perfection. From the gorgeous details {give me all the rose gold} to the most gorgeous bride {talk about stunning}, this Oran, Missouri, wedding was one after my own heart!

Abbey + Seth, you two truly couldn't be anymore adorable together, and your big day was the sweetest display of your love for one another. What a perfect day it truly was! Thank you for trusting me to capture it all for you!

Kelsi + James {Kelso, Missouri || 08.11.18}

Mr. + Mrs. Jansen

Kelsie + James' wedding will forever be one of my favorites, y'all! This sweet {and, not to mention, crazy gorgeous} couple definitely didn't shy away from making their wedding "them," which totally stole my little photog heart! From a random pitstop at McDonald's to the entire wedding party diving into the middle layer of the wedding cake by fork, there was never a lack of enthusiasm and laughter with this wedding party.

Kelsie + James, I hope you had THE BEST time in the Bahamas on your honeymoon! {Totally jealous!}. Thank you both for trusting me to capture your big day. It truly couldn't have been more "you," and that's what it's ALL about!

Congrats, Mr. + Mrs. Jansen!

xoxo,

Mel
