Chapel of the Ozarks Wedding // Top of the Rock, Missouri // Kerry & Jeff
When I’m asked to document a destination wedding, I’m tickled…but most of all I’m honored. I’d never been to Missouri before. It’s incredibly gorgeous and I really
want need to go back. I asked my talented photographer friend Stacy Trotter to join me along for the ride. It wasn’t a bad drive at all, the roadside beauty along the way was oh so worth it. And what was even more worth it was working with such a dear couple who simply beamed with joy when they were together.
This wedding was actually held in the heat of the summer last year and it was unfathomably hot (why did I wear black pants again?) but yes, since my blog is now a more mobile-friendly user experience, I’m getting back on the blogging train! Pardon the fact that I have a treasure trove of work just waiting to be published. Please enjoy!! :)
a sweet moment with Jeff’s mother
and a loving moment with Kerry’s mama
a big big thank you to my second photographer, Stacy Trotter, for capturing Jeff’s “getting ready” images while I was in another building with the ladies!!!
it’s time for the first look…
as the sun begins to set for the day, it’s tradition for Top of the Rock to let it go down with a bang.
a very loud bang!

…and it’s party time
let love sparkle
