Elisabeth and Matt : St. Charles Wedding Day • Columbia Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

StCharlesWedding_Missouri_CatherineRhodesPhotography_4014.jpgElisabeth and Matt’s St. Charles Wedding day was a beautiful one to say the least! Elisabeth is just the sweetest and Matt, well  he is certainly her other half. We started the day at Matt’s family home where Elisabeth and the girls got ready. As we loaded Elisabeth into the car, and I mean literally into the back of the car, we headed to the church for these two to become Mr. and Mrs.!

The ceremony itself was a beautiful Catholic mass, with family and friends included in the final blessing. As they made their final exit of the church, we were greeted by a poem reading and a dove release, Elisabeth was pretty excited! Then it was off to portraits we went with a moment spent in Lafayette Park and the remainder of time strolling around Main Street in downtown St. Charles!

The reception was just beautiful, held at The Heart of St. Charles! With a sweet first dance, these two kicked off the celebration and were just as happy as could be! Congratulations Elisabeth and Matt, your day was just wonderful and we made it through without anyone getting sick, high five!

Christina and Dan : Boston Engagement Session • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

BostonEngagementSession_BostonMassachusettes_CatherineRhodesPhotography_3965.jpgLast week Christina and Dan met up with us for their Boston Engagement Session in the heart of the city! First, we strolled around the Public Garden and then hearded over to their hidden little neighborhood with cobblestone streets and secret gardens hidden throughout! It was a gorgeous evening for engagements to say the least. These two beautiful people are getting married next year and I couldn’t be more excited for their day in Maine!

Patricia and Curt: MU Wedding Day • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

MUWeddingDay_ColumbiaMissouri_CatherineRhodesPhotography_3947.jpgPatricia and Curt are quite the pair and they said I DO this weekend here in Columbia Missouri! From their sweet Catholic ceremony to the exciting reception at Kimball Ballroom, this day was full of happy smiles! We started the day at the Tiger Hotel where Curt, the sweet groom, had set out a lovely surprise for Patricia the evening before! From there it was to the church to become Mr. and Mrs. After the ceremony, Patricia and Curt had something special planned for their photos, portraits at Farout Field!

Now if you are a Tigers fan, you know how exciting it is to be on that field! We strolled around the stadium capturing some absolutely gorgeous moments. Next, the reception which started with a sweet first dance as husband and wife and maybe a face or two covered in cake! Yes, the day was a beautiful one and I can’t imagine these two having anything less in their future to come!

Debbie and Kel : A Backyard Wedding Day • Columbia Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

BackyardWedding_ColumbiaMissouri_CatherineRhodesPhotography_3904.jpgOh where to begin with Debbie and Kel’s day, it was so filled with love and joy it’s hard to even describe! These two opted for a backyard wedding at Debbie’s family home. Their pond in the backyard was the perfect setting to a beautiful sunset ceremony. Not only were these two excited to get married, but they were overjoyed to begin their sweet new marriage in worship and song! So as the sun set, everyone from the Bride and Groom to the wedding guests turned West to sing and watch the beautiful sunset that God graced them with on such a special day.

From there the night was off to good food, toasts, and a bit of dancing before Debbie and Kel made their grand exit! Through a tunnel of sparklers, these two raced off to start their new life, together and so so happy!

Congratulations Debbie and Kel, your day was truly a love and faith filled day and I can’t imagine you two having anything but a B-e-a-utiful future together!
