Gillette Wedding - The White Owl Wright City MO - Jheart Photography

It was such a joy to be invited back to The White Owl for Jessie and Morgan’s beautiful wedding day.

Out of all of the weddings I have been apart of, Morgan is the first bride to honor me with dressing the bridesmaids in the most adorable blush pant suits. They were perfect. I hope these become a giant wedding trend!

It’s not just the girls that rock their attire for the day. Don’t forget to look at the detail Jessie made sure was in his suit…He looked so sharp.

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.

Annie & Austin Engagement/St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Blanchette Park Pictures

WOW! I have not shot at Blanchette Park in awhile and let me say they have done some GORGEOUS things to this Memorial Garden area. Not only can you rent it to get married, I got to shoot Annie & Austin's engagement session here and it was PERFECTION! It looks like a Secret Garden when you put too very love people in the middle of it and starting snapping pictures. I am over the moon excited to be at there wedding in September. 

 

Carbrey Wedding/St. Charles Wedding Photographer/St. Louis Wedding Photographer

Amanda & Jacob had the perfect wedding day. The rain stop just in time & we were blessed with beautiful sunshine. Boulevard Park is a perfect spot for an outdoor ceremony. The gazebo is surrounding by trees with a gorgeous fountain for a back drop.

Amanda did an outstanding job with all of the details from the stunning bridesmaids dresses to the delicious cake! These two were surrounded by so many family & friends that love and support them in their next life journey. I am so blessed that Jheart Photography was there to capture this perfect day.

St. Louis Wedding Photographer/St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Sparks Wedding: The Corner Gates

Jen messaged me through a mutual friend in regards to shooting their wedding day. Their wedding day was the first time I met them or worked with them. Upon finally getting to meet them I was instantly put at ease. Their smiles were HUGE the entire day, they went with the ultimate flow of a crazy wedding day with grace and Jen even stated at one point, "Today is already amazing, because I am marrying this guy". Does it get any better than that? 

The Corner Gates is a perfect hidden event room off Cherokee in St. Louis Mo. The intimate feel as soon as you walk in really sets the pace for a romantic wedding. I have to confess when I go to wedding I always seem to remember the meal, and the food was outstanding! 

I know that Jen & Mike are going to celebrate a great life together and I really can't wait to see what this life brings them.

St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Chaumette Vineyards/Chaumette Wedding

Chaumette Vineyards was a gorgeous spot for a beautiful wedding day. The open fields, the grapevines, and the overlook of Missouri is just breath taking as you stand on top of a hill to say your vows. Not only is the wedding venue perfect for your rustic wedding day, Chaumette offers the cutest rental cabins for your bridal weekend stay! 

I loved shooting here and couldn't believe how gorgeous this October wedding was. From the moments of anticipation and getting ready, to that feeling of relief as you see your loved one at  the other end of the aisle. I love capturing weddings. It brings out all the feels for sure.
