Missouri Wedding Venues • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photography

With so many wonderful engagements popping up from December to March, we thought it would be a great idea to share some beautiful and unique Missouri wedding venues we had the opportunity to photograph throughout 2o14! Whether you are looking for the intimate backyard wedding or a ballroom event, we’ve seen so many beautiful spaces and have listed a few of our favorites below :


This beautiful and rustic wedding venue sits just outside of St. Louis and is the perfect venue for your wedding Spring through Fall! Not only does this lovely venue offer a winery for a romantic feel indoors, but you can create something truly magical with a tent reception by the lake! There are also rustic barns spread throughout the property so creativity is endless for your day!

Next venue up is the gorgeous Urban Event space in Kansas city Missouri! This stunning venue offers plenty of raw space for  you to create the wedding day of your dreams. Along with an urban vibe, the location is perfect for family and friends traveling into the Midwest for your big day!

And with our final feature, we are sharing a beautiful venue close to home! Mockingbird Hill is a sweet red barn that sits just outside of Jefferson city. This lovely venue is the perfect space for your rustic outdoor wedding! With everything from a indoor barn space for the reception to fire pits outside, your family and friends will love the atmosphere of your laid back day!

Jessica and Cody : St. Louis Engagement Session • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

Jessica and Cody met up with us this past weekend for their beautiful St. Louis Engagement Session! Not only did they bring their adorable pup for a few photos, but we spent half of the afternoon at one of our favorite venues in the city! This beautiful and historical building is found in downtown St. Louis and really represented Jessica and Cody’s personality together! After The Old Post Office, we switched gears and headed to the ice rink in Forest Park for some beautiful evening images on the rink, right where Cody proposed to Jessica!

Congratulations again Jessica and Cody, we are so excited to photograph your wedding later this year!
