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.

Solis Romance

Jessica and Jose wedding day was filled with so much happiness and delight. The hot day in July was filled with family and friends who gathered around for all the laughter and fun that these two brought. Laced with pink and white and draped with hanging strains of lilies for a backdrop that reflected the setting sun it was truly a day to remember. Held on the grounds of the historic Longview Mansion and photographed by Picturesque . Naked cake by Sweet Treats by Cassie. Congrats to this amazing couple.

Layers of Lavander

Christina weddings was held at the beautiful historic Elms Hotel and Spa. Her colors of lavender, blush and grays accent her family heirlooms of silver vessels, tea pots and saucers. Lush vintage blooms and textures of berries and herbs filled her bouquets and tables. Photos were shot by Dimartinophoto. Such a sweet day to be apart of. Congrats Christina and Aron.

Misty Mansion

A little misty dew didn’t dampen this day. The Lovely Alena and Austin had the wedding of their dreams. Wanting a small getaway wedding was out of reach with a large extended family. So a compromise of a small intimate ceremony and reception with only imitate friends and family followed by a large ball with everyone invited.  Dancing way into the evening was the perfect blend mixed with down times of yard games, Antipasto bar and dessert bar of her’s and his. The personal ceremony made special with a ceremonial blanket made by the grooms mother and sprinkled with petals and herbs by mothers added a unique touch to this perfect day. Congrats to this beautiful couple.

Ruffles in Spring

This past year we had the privilege of working with wedding planner Madison Sanders Events and bringing to life this heart warming styled shoot at Longview Mansion. Not only was it so much fun to work with a great group of vendors but this dress was breathtakingly stunning and a work of art. We were so over joyed to find this spread in the current issue of EA Bride Magazine.

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.

Blueberries, Peaches and Cream

We love new and exciting venues and  Heritage Ranch in Sedalia was the perfect location for this laid back country lace wedding. Rachel planned her wedding from her home in Saipan where her groom and her both taught at the local elementary school. Rachel was a wonderful bride who came to us with a clear idea of what she was looking for and yet still allowed us some creativity in design. This wedding day was filled with the most adorable details such as lots of children with balloons, bubbles, swings, climbing in old cars all of them finding, sharing and hiding toads. So much fun all wrapped up with a bon-fire and yard games to send the sweet couple off. This all captured by Lark Photos. Thank you Rachel and Will for choosing us to help you with your special day.

Miller/Brunker Estate Wedding

Brides inspire us!  Haley came with an amazing vision. Her wedding was to take place on her family property with their custom barn as the back drop. A elegant yet sophisticated barn wedding. With the original idea of the ceremony setup outside under an arbor and the reception in a tent Haley and her family showed true class when last minute changes had to be made due to massive amounts of rain and flooding in our area.  Quickly the family fixed up the inside of the barn for the ceremony and flipped the space into the cocktail hour and set up the reception in front of the arbor under a tent. We think this vision turned out even better than the original.  So many details and sweet memories added into this day even finishing off with an explosion of fireworks. Haley’s colors were blush, coral and cream with pops of maroon, marsala. All photos were shot by Lark Photos. We wish all the best to the happy couple

Easter Floral Crown Design Class

We thought how fun would it be fun to have a floral crown class for young girls to make and wear on Easter Sunday. Dressed in their easter dresses with the accessory of a flower crown. The Class was so much fun with several girls and ladies in attendance. Treats and drinks were provided along with photos for everyone. This was such a success that we will be providing a Mothers day Crown and Photo shoot as well. Here are the photos from the event. Thank you to Mike at 4 Honor Photography for capturing the event at the The Stanley Event Space.
