Old World Elegance

A warm fall day was perfect setting for Marissa and Daniels wedding. The Sweet ceremony took place at Our Lady of Presentation and the reception was held at Longview Mansion. A beautiful cake was made by Classic Cakes and matched the invite motif perfectly. We filled the huge chandeliers with garden greens to bring a outside feel in. Stone urns overflowed with soft grasses and blooms and her bouquet was filled with texture of grasses and air plants along with navy berries. All captured by the stunning work of Alea Lovely. Congrats to this Amazing Couple.


Iridescent Color

We love our brides and clients. But there is no greater complement then when a fellow wedding professional seeks you out for their own wedding. They have a vast list of vendors that they have worked with and to be chosen for their special day is such an honor.  Kyndall is a great photographer and she has worked in this industry for some time now.  So when she came to me with her ideas of vivid, bold and lush blooms we were so excited to be on board. Her day was filled with corals, plums, pinks, oranges and golds. We used her love for citrus and fruits in her decor and a mix of colored glass filled her head table. Kyndall’s smile is intoxicating and she brings such joy to everyone around her and we were blessed to be apart of her and Jordan’s Day. Pics by Alea Lovely venue Willow Creek Venue.


Destination St. Louis Wedding

We love to travel and heading to St. Louis MO it was so much fun. Being apart of the union of the Sheridan and Berry families was a weekend we won’t soon forget and will treasure in our hearts forever. Zack and Kelsey’s wedding was one of fun, family and pure love. We stayed in the Missouri Athletics Club where the reception location took place. We worked with a wonderful team of professionals from the hotel staff to event planner Megan with Mr.and Mrs. and of course photography by Alea Lovely. We enjoyed our time with these delightfully and loving families. Thank you for making us apart of yours.

European Elopement Inspiration Shoot

Finding a Hidden old ruins is always fun but being able to bring it alive was magical. Over grown wisteria vines, arched gateways, broken ground and climbing columns with stairs that disappeared into a lake of water are just some of the amazing surroundings we were able to work around. In lavenders, gray blues and touches of pink for a soft color palette and the addition of white draping an old mantel a simple dinner table for two. This created the perfect look.  Add a lovely cake to share with close friends and family and you can have a perfect elopement.
