southern wedding

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

Kayli + Kason {Wappapello, Missouri || 08.04.18}

Mr. + Mrs. Lawrence

These two and this wedding, y'all   .... I can't even put into words how breathtaking Kayli truly was (no words), how effortlessly and seamlessly their day went, and exactly how much love surrounded these two from their family and friends. The love, the laughter, the tears .... what a joy and blessing it was to witness!

Kayli + Kason, I simply couldn't adore you two any more than I already do. Your day and your love for one another is absolutely flawless in my eyes. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your first day as Mr. and Mrs.!

xoxo,

Mel
