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 […]

couple poses in front of sweet clovers farm wedding barn

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 […]

couple feeding each other pie during kc national golf club reception

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 […]

“Intimate Backyard Wedding” to me doesn’t seem to fully encapsulate what Terrance and Natalie had. In one way it’s because it was actually in the front yard. In other ways it’s just that they had a ceremony that was absolutely perfect for them and it was beautiful to witness. It was family only on the […]

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 […]

Chark & I (that’s Charleen & Mark) headed out to Red Door Wine Store last week for their engagement session. I quickly knew upon their inquiry that we were kindred spirits. Ean & I also used our celebrity couple name (Tean) to create an e-mail to organize all of our wedding e-mail shenanigans. It felt […]

Red Door Wine Store Engagement Ring Shot

Okay, listen to me. You will NEVER see another in-home session as cute as this and you will also never catch me in the snow again. Cherish this historic home engagement session as if it is your last. Frankly, it might be. I don’t know how to freaking top it. I’ve said it before but […]
