Featured : 50 Top US Wedding Photographers • Central Missouri Based Destinaton Wedding Photographer

WOW!

Surprised, shocked, excited, just a few of the words running through my head when I saw the post including Catherine Rhodes Photography as one of the 50 Top US Wedding Photographers posted by WeddZilla! This is an honor that I truly didn’t see coming for many many years, if at all, and I’m so grateful to Weddzilla.com for including my name.

And of course a big thank you to every beautiful face and story that I’ve been able to photograph over the last 6 years. I can’t even begin to tell you how truly special it is to capture your special and most inspiring moments each and every weekend.

Hailey and Erik : The Courses at Forest Park Wedding • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

WeddingPhotography_ForestParkStLouisMissouri_CatherineRhodesPhotography_2785.jpgHailey and Erik’s wedding day at The Courses at Forest Park was a whirlwind of excitement, unpredictable weather, and a whole lot of love! The day began as most do, with the Bride getting ready with her family and friends! From there we headed out for quick first look and on to Forest Park to beat the rain and take advantage of some beautiful weather. Well the rain held off through most of the portraits and then carried into a tornado warning, YES a tornado warning! Inside we all hurried waiting out the storm and fingers crossed for some clear weather during the ceremony!

Well lucky for us, the weather cleared for a short time leaving us the perfect opportunity for a wedding filled with sunshine! The ceremony included Jewish traditions from the Ketubah signing to the breaking of the bottle at the end! And since Erik is in the Military they had to follow tradition with a sword exit! The evening carried into the reception with a wonderful dinner and the exciting Hora! Hailey and Erik’s day was filled with excitement from beginning to end and it was an honor photographing their day!

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs., wishing you many many more years of excitement and love together!

So we are one day late with our 10 on 10 post, but better late then never right:)Today I’m sharing a few favorites from my friend Emily and I’s trip down to New Orleans! Between the eclectic culture and the food, I don’t think there’s many places in the US I love more. Not to mention they celebrate everything from weddings to birthdays by parading through the streets with a complete brass band, the best!

Chelsea and Jonathan : Mockingbird Hill Wedding • Central Missouri Based Destination Wedding Photographer

WeddingPhotography_RedBarnJeffersonCityMissouri_CatherineRhodesPhotography_2728.jpgChelsea and Jonathan’s wedding day at Mockingbird Hill was the absolute sweetest! Chelsea was smiles from ear to ear with excitement as we started things off at her parent’s home. In her beautiful lace and pink floral gown, we headed off for their first look! The entire day took place at Mockingbird Hill, a beautiful barn in the middle of the woods just south of Jefferson city. The ceremony was perfect, including lovely words from family members that didn’t leave a single dry eye.

Then it was off to their beautiful reception inside the barn! It seemed that everyone at the wedding took full advantage of that dance floor, even the little ones, celebrating the night away!  Congratulations Chelsea and Jonathan, your sweet sweet wedding day is only the beginning, wishing you so many more days of happiness in your future together!
