Jenn & Ryan {married}

Jenn & Ryan planned a wedding for mid November knowing that with St.Louis weather as a factor – it could be snowing or it could be sunny. With many of their friends traveling to be there, they’d hoped the weather would cooperate. A private couple, they initially wanted a destination wedding with a private ceremony free from stress, so they hoped their day would go smoothly and without any mishaps. They couldn’t have know the weather would end up being in the high 60s with a warm southerly breeze, or that their wedding day would go so smoothly it was flawless. They couldn’t have known that guests would whisper to one another that it was the most amazing wedding they’d ever been to, or that even though their wedding wasn’t a private event for two that it would feel like they were the only people on that rooftop when they danced their first dance. What they did know that this day was meant to be, that this wasn’t the beginning of their bond because that was already stronger than any vows could depict. That the person standing before one another was their forever. Enjoy Jenn & Ryan’s official beginning to forever.

Brooke & Craig {married}

It was a cool, crisp morning at The Meyer Family farm. Their home was filled with laughter and joy, and every room was a buzz with excitement. Brooke was being perfected by her beauty team as her gorgeous bridesmaids scurried throughout the house getting dressed and attending to all their duties to make the bride’s day flawless. A few blocks away stood the church that Brooke would soon marry Craig. She couldn’t have know all those days of attending church there, that someday she’d marry a man who would sweep her off her feet and promise her his forever. But there in that church she’d grown up in, a couple blocks away from the family farm she grew up at, she and Craig promised forever. Enjoy Brooke and Craig’s wedding day!!

Megan & Brandon {married}

We looked forward to Megan and Brandon’s wedding all year. They are an adorable couple with a sweet caring relationship and were the most fun to photograph at their engagement session. The anticipation of the perfect day did not disappoint. It was absolutely gorgeous with beautiful fall colors and a crisp chill in the air. the day started off cloudy and then the warm golden sunlight that only fall could bring came out that late afternoon. Many things about this day and this couple reminded Roger and I of us and our own wedding day. The dynamic of the couple – she’s sweet, fun loving, and easy going – he’s innocently charming, cautious, and particular – reminds us of the two of us when we got married. And they day was undoubtedly just like our own fall wedding day in Gatlinburg Tennessee. It’s rewarding to take wonderful images of a wedding day, but it’s even more rewarding to watch two people commit to forever and feel that they “get it” and mutually share such love and admiration for the other. We thoroughly enjoyed Megan and Brandon’s wedding – and hope you do too!!!

Nicole & Eric {married}

Every wedding is unique. The things being different are based around the personality and presences of a couple. One couple may like something formal, while one may like something rustic. Some may choose an edgy theme completely different from anything done before, while some may embrace time honored traditions and keep it traditional. While one bride may choose bright vibrant colors, another may choose muted neutral tones. There are so many ways each wedding day differs, but at the same time there are many ways they are similar. While Nicole & Eric had some unique touches to their day that we’d never seen before, as well they had the quintessential wedding day elements that turn a normal Saturday, into the wedding day of a couple’s dreams. Enjoy Nicole and Eric’s day.
