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 […]

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 […]

A quick note before I get into this* This is an approximate value of our wedding day. We had a few factors that fit into this in an odd way that wouldn’t affect most people reading this. Mostly, my neuroticism. The main points of this are that I bought several wedding dresses and in the […]

The Beck Event Space in Harrisonville, MO is the perfect space for a wedding. There is brick everywhere, a gorgeous getting ready room, and plenty of room for dancing. As I finish Henry & Jordan’s wedding gallery – it’s time for slide show of some highlights from their day. It’s always beautiful to watch a […]

Couple Kissing against stone at the beck event space

Do I tell y’all enough that I love to give rewards when you refer wedding clients to me? Evidently, Whitney heard because she brought me Emily and Lindsey & I couldn’t be more thankful. Whitney and Emily played basketball together in Iowa and now my wish is to photograph the whole team’s wedding. One year […]
