Annie & Austin Wedding/New Town St Charles Wedding/St. Charles Wedding Photographer

Annie & Austin’s wedding day was nothing short of magical. The flowers were stunning, Annie’s dress was timeless, and Austin never stopped smiling. The Chapel at New Town is full of beautiful airy light that is every photographer’s dream! I had never shot a wedding here before and I seriously can’t wait to shoot more. The colors around New Town this time of year cast an abundance of beautiful fall colors all around them. New Town really is a gorgeous small town with a community that is like no other. Annie was nervous before walking down the aisle, but as soon as she saw Austin, her smile grew and the whole chapel was in awe, I mean…could she be more stunning?? These also had a party like no other with Annie’s brother’s band rocking the event tent!

Melanie & Corey say "I Do"/St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Quail Ridge Park Wentzville

Melanie & Corey had gorgeous weather at Quail Ridge Park in Wentzville where they said their "I do's". Melanie's gorgeous wedding gown that displayed her beautiful tattoo artwork was stunning with her side swoop hair do. Every detail was excellently executed and really made her look complete. The black and maroon colors complimenting everything about Melanie. I couldn't believe those were silk flowers!

I learned very quickly that the Groomsmen don't take each other too seriously when all together and they definitely love to joke. We had such a great time taking pictures and getting to learn a little bit about his friendship with each one of them. As Corey watched Melanie walk down the aisle he had to look to the sky to keep the tears from falling, which is perfection in the eyes of a photographer. 

Watching these two say "I do" with their family and closest friends really made me smile. The Lodge at Quail Ridge proved to be a perfect setting with wall to ceiling windows the over looked a pond and lush greenery. I can't wait to shoot more weddings there in 2019. The ukulele serenading Uncle's was probably my favorite part!

Thank you Melanie and Corey for asking me to be there to capture your wedding day. I loved spending the day with you and your family and friends. I am excited to see where this next journey in life takes you!

Eichholz Wedding/The White Owl/St. Charles Wedding Photographer

Kim & Randy's perfect day was at the rustic The White Owl in Wright City MO. I was absolutely tickled to shoot here because a year ago, I got married here too! It was so much fun to go back there and be the photographer! 

Kim & Randy were surrounded by so many wonderful family and friends that really know how to celebrate. The details Kim added to the venue really highlighted their relationship and the rustic charm of The White Owl. Kim was all smiles before the ceremony & you can tell by the picture, she was glowing as she walked down the aisle. Kim's classic lace dress from The Wedding Gallery St. Charles paired perfect with the gorgeous old church pews placed in the outdoor chapel. The navy and purple bouquets were silk! I couldn't believe it myself when they were delivered and they were made by the amazingly talented Troy Flower Shop

Getting to return to where I had my wedding was nostalgic, and even more so because I got to see two other amazing people begin their life journey there. I can't wait to go back!

Kim & Randy, thank you so much for asking me to capture your special day. I can't wait to see where the future takes you together.

St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Illinois Wedding Photographer/ Gloeckner Wedding

I met Hailey a few years back during another session. Since then I have had the pleasure of working with Hailey & Joe a few times and every session is amazing. Needless to say I was so excited when their wedding day came & I got to capture it. Their ceremony was at a gorgeous historic church called Church of the Holy Family in Chaokia IL. I was instantly in love with the charm of this gorgeous church. After the service we headed to the beautiful Weingarten in Belleville IL. This place had the greatest scenery for a gorgeous spring wedding. 

Congratulations Hailey and Joe. I can't wait to see what this life brings to you.

 

St. Charles Wedding Photographer/St. Charles Photographer/Cole Wedding Klondike Park

Last year I was asked to capture Josh's proposal to Ms. Sheena and it was BEAUTIFUL down on Main Street in St. Charles. Then, we did another amazing shoot at Busch Wildlife in St. Charles for their engagement pictures. So it would only seem natural to pick another gorgeous location like Klondike Park for their beautiful outdoor wedding. Sheena put so much into every detail of her wedding that it really made my job fun. I love putting all the details together.  Her ring box was one of. my favorite pieces. The dreamsicle favored cake wasn't too shabby either!

It was a great joy to be able to celebrate with them as they joined together as one. They really know how to throw a celebration!

Thank you Josh and Sheena for entrusting me with capturing this amazing day.

St. Charles Wedding/Wedding Photographer Jheart Photography/Matt & Jenni Wedding!

This wedding that was on the outskirts of St. Charles in Troy Missouri, was full of love, family, & music. Wedding day details are my favorite part of capturing the day. You always know how much love and work went into planning the wedding day by each tiny detail. Plus you learn so much about the couple in all the details. One of the best parts of this wedding is that not only did they join hearts, but they became a family of 7, with their 5 beautiful children. I really enjoyed spending the day with this crew, they made me laugh and they pulled at my heart strings with the love they have for each other, which is always two things I want from a wedding....

Congrats Jenni & Matt! I wish you many years of joy and happiness together.
