This past weekend was a whirlwind of amazing couples and beautiful locations, my favorite! This first beautiful couple that I had the opportunity to meet up with once again back East is My and Ted, a beautiful pair that I had the honor of photographing on their wedding day last year! We met for their anniversary in Historic Deerfield and captured some lovely images at sunset. Here are a few favorites from their session and if you’d like to check out their wedding images from last Summer, feel free to click HERE!

A Styled Bridal Shoot : Blue Bell Farm • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

WeddingPhotography_BlueBellFarm_ColumbiaMissouri_CatherineRhodesPhotography_3203.jpg

Blue Bell Farm, as soon as I walked into this venue for the first time I knew I wanted to create a beautiful styled shoot! Mayumi and Alezandra, the lovely twin sisters you see below, volunteered to play dress up for the afternoon and model these stunning wedding dresses from Bridal Bliss Designs! I wanted the entire shoot to feel whimsical and relaxed with floral pieces that represented the summer, all created by Addie Jane’s Originals. Of course we live in Missouri and the weather had a different plan for us that afternoon… Throughout the entire shoot we felt rain drops, but that didn’t stop us from creating these beautiful images. Plus with the amazing help of Jade, our Hair and Makeup Artist, we had nothing to worry about when it came to the rain! Even if it had rained all afternoon, we had the privileged of playing with Blue Bell Farm’s newly hatched baby chicks, so sweet!

To top off this beautiful shoot, I was finally able to purchase and use the wonderful Contax 645, the grandaddy of all Film Cameras. To say I’m excited about this camera is quite the understatement.  There are a few beautiful film snaps below, see if you can pick them out among the rest!

Mr. and Mrs. Daniel : Kansas City Wedding Day • Central Missouri Based Destiantion Wedding Photographer

WeddingPhotography_HillaryChaseDaniel_TheUrbanEventKansascity_CatherineRhodesPhotography_3163.jpg
Hillary and Chase said I Do this past weekend and what a celebration it was! Getting to know both Hillary and Chase over the last few months has been a blessing. These two are the absolute epitome of a love and faith filled relationship.

Their day begin at the Intercontinental on the Plaza! Deciding to save the first look for the aisle, they prepared for the day just a floor from each other, just beaming with excitement to see one another! The wedding itself was held at the beautiful Jacob’s Well Church. The ceremony was filled with song and sweet words. After the final kiss to seal this beautiful marriage, they were greeted by family and friends in a sparkler exit!

Finally the day rounded out at their amazing reception held at The Urban Event, what a beautiful space! A room filled with baby’s breath and smiling faces, this reception was stunning from floor to ceiling! Then to top it all off, Chase prepared a video from their actual engagement that he showed during the reception. I’m pretty sure there wasn’t a dry eye in that room after that beautiful moment.

Congratulations Hillary and Chase, it was truly a blessing to be part of your day and I just know your marriage one beautiful journey ahead!

Rachel and Cody were just engaged not even a few months ago and on the 4th of July they said I Do in Springfield Missouri!

So the planning began and at the Seminole Baptist Church on Friday afternoon, Rachel and Cody became Mr. and Mrs.!

Congratulations Rachel and Cody, we are all so happy for you and your sweet new marriage!
