saint rose catholic church last second magic wedding

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it. Madelyn and Quincy knew they wanted to get married on their 4-year dating anniversary. Luck would have it that in 2020 it was a […]

Grand Street Cafe is obviously a grand ole cafe, but it’s also a tucked away wedding venue! When I walked into Grand Street, it was absolutely and undeniably adorable. There was all the room in the world to personalize the venue and vendors could be cleverly tucked away for things like dinner and DJ’ing. Jenny […]

I have only ever heard great things about Herrman, MO. It lived up to every bit of the hype. Melanie & Ben’s Sweet Clover Farm wedding was so full of personality, I could barely stand it. I laughed the entire time and was so touched to see how much everyone cared for each other. The […]

It has been almost three years since my last wedding at The Bride and the Bauer, and I missed it so much. The brick, the getting ready rooms,  & the large windows make for an amazing venue. It’s only fitting that two amazing people would get married here. This wedding had it all. I was […]

The KC National Golf Club is a gorgeous establishment with lots of class, simplicity, and room for people in love. For the longest time, I knew Bridget without actually knowing Bridget. I worked with her sister-in-law at Cerner where I got to hear second-hand about her budding love story with Jordan. When Hallie Sigwing told […]

Uptown Theater Wedding brides on the stage during marriage ceremony

Shelby and Emma had an Uptown Theater Wedding and I could expect nothing less. It was vibrant, beautiful, and full of love. These wonderful women and I met under unfortunate circumstances. I don’t want to dwell on it, but they’re one of the big driving forces of my LGBTQ+ vendor list. They’re also why I’m […]

This post has been brewing and brewing simply because I did not want to jump the gun. My weddings that were all set to occur in the past few months involved me speaking individually to the couples affected. Like much of the midwest, “wedding season” when not counting these summer months, is in the fall. […]

Anyone else feel their ability to “person” correctly dissipate during all of this? I was a blogging fool once upon a time if you can believe it. Now, I’m trying to remember which of my perfect couples I haven’t graced the blog with yet. I immediately stumbled upon Hayley & Bryce. Just waiting in my […]

I have been asked to write this one million times. In fact, I have sat down to do it and then I realize I don’t feel qualified. I still don’t, but for the 1 person I might help? Let’s just try it. There are some unavoidable things in life, but as much as I can […]

My boudoir studio is located right where we took these photos. Why on earth is this my first engagement session there? When Katie & Jesse told me they wanted something the complete opposite of their wedding vibe (barn-like) and preferred the look of the historic West Bottoms for their engagement session, I was all in. […]

West Bottoms Engagement Session under the historic bridge

Hi! The site looks a little different if you’ve been here before, yeah? If not, welcome to my tiny corner of the internet! When I imagined introducing my new branding and website to the world, 100% of me knew I wanted to do it with this blog post. Was I sure what “this” blog post […]
