missouri brides

Emily + Jon {Defiance, Missouri || 11.03.18}

Mr. + Mrs. Harbaugh

Oh how I absolutely love a fall wedding, but make it a fall wedding at a beautiful Missouri winery with the sweetest bride + groom .... I'm still swooning. From the perfect fall flowers (oh those colors ... perfection) to the bride + groom incorporating family heirlooms as some of their details to the groom writing the song that his bride walked down the aisle to, Emily + Jon's wedding simple couldn't have been any sweeter (or more perfect)!

Emily + Jon, thank you for trusting me to capture your special day. Your love for one another and joy for life itself, was something truly beautiful to witness and capture. Adore you both!

xoxo,

Mel

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!

Olivia + Trent {Van Buren, Missouri || 10.06.18}

Mr. + Mrs. Hillis

This October wedding {although it might not have quite felt like fall} was absolutely perfect! From the cutest first look {goodness I love first looks} to the most gorgeous bride you'll ever see {.... seriously, though, isn't she just glowing?}, to all the gorgeous details, Olivia + Trent's wedding is still making my little photog heart skip a beat!

Olivia + Trent, thank you for trusting me to capture your special moments from your engagement session {still one of my favs to date} to your big day! You're both on my favorites list for life! I wish you both the best, and I can't wait to see the beautiful life you create together.
