Pumpkin-Filled Fall Winery Wedding in Missouri

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 03, 2013

Lindsey & Skyler

October 5

Liberty, Missouri 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We loved the character and history of Belvoir Winery.  The building we held our reception in was built around 1900 and was originally used as a home for members of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.  They were able to keep a lot of the original flooring, molding, etc., and there was just a certain charm about the building that we instantly fell in love with.  Plus, we absolutely love Halloween, and Belvoir Winery has long been known as one of the most haunted locations in the Midwest.  (In fact, they were recently featured in an episode of Ghost Hunters.)

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Pumpkins. We love fall and probably carve about ten pumpkins every year.  We held our rehearsal dinner at my aunt and uncle’s house out in the country, and our guests carved pumpkins (over 100!) that were used as décor for the wedding.

2. Skyler’s boutonniere. Skyler is an antique collector, and one of his favorite things to collect is antique handmade marbles. We had our florist incorporate one of his marbles into his boutonniere.  

3. Favors. We had mason jars personalized with our names and wedding date on one side, and the tree logo from our invitations on the other.  They were part of the dinner setting, and everyone used them as their drinking glass for the night.  I received so many compliments about them and many of our friends and family have told me they still use their drinking glass.

 3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about. 

One of my favorite memories is walking down the aisle with my Dad.  It was such a special moment that just the two of us got to share.  He looked so happy and proud when he gave me away. I think that was the moment everything finally felt real.

DIY Missouri Barn Wedding

Posted by Kim on Dec 20, 2012

Joy & Jonny

September 29

Ellisville, Missouri

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Jonny grew up spending time at this barn. He had many memories there and had a personal connection with the location. While we were dating, we went fishing there quite often.  I am an art teacher and I loved the rustic aesthetic and was excited to add a touch of delicacy to make the venue our own.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

Jonny and my father built a dock for us to get married on. It was amazing and helped create photographs with such a beautiful background of water. We appeared to be floating!

 My Grandma Lampe made jam as our wedding favor. It was canned in glass jelly jars and we labeled them  J+J along with the flavor. We tied lace over the lid using a multi-textures yarn. A perfect touch!

 The details & décor. Being a former graphic designer, I loved designing our invitations! In the barn, we strung large bulb Christmas lights throughout the barn. We draped gossamer to coordinate with the lights. We also bought an assortment of glass vases and containers, sprayed them white to appear as milk glass, placed babies breath in them and used this as centerpieces. Under the white glass we laid crème doilies that came from a dollar store! Our many DIY projects made the aesthetics of our wedding day complete!

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Delegate. Do not be afraid to kindly ask for help with projects from the get go. Those that love you and are near you will be more than happy to help. Especially if you are doing a lot of DIY projects like we did…help from family and friends was such a blessing!

Nautical Waterside Style Shoot in Missouri

Posted by Kim on Aug 31, 2012

As you start heading off for your Labor Day weekend plans (we hope you’re doing something fun!), we just wanted to sneak in one last inspirational summer style shoot that came to us from a group of talented Missouri vendors. We were huge fans of the whole nautical theme this summer, and this shoot is a perfect example of doing the whole seaside-wedding thing without going overboard (pun completely intended).

Have a great long weekend – we’ll be back next week with lots more wedding inspiration to kick off fall!

Ashleigh & Daniel

Harmonie Church, Innsbrook, Missouri & Cedar Lake Farms, Wright City, Missouri

Our Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

Before I even met my prince charming, I always knew I wanted a wedding at a white country church and a red barn. It took one look at the barn and I knew it was the venue. It is the perfect venue for your dream country wedding. 

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

It’s hard to narrow them down to just three. My three favorite details from my wedding would be our best man (my husband’s brother and a Marine) wearing his dress blues while walking down the aisle to “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” the firework show at the end of the night and seeing all of my maid of honor and my work come together to make the perfect day! We worked so hard the year leading up to the wedding. Little details were the most important thing to me. It was definitely a DIY, Americana and country themed wedding.

Tell us about the one moment from your wedding day that you can’t stop thinking about.

I can’t stop thinking about the whole day. Everything was perfect and it was the happiest day of my life, marrying my best friend surrounded by everyone we love. It was a very hot day for an outside wedding and our guests were glowing with sweat, but the heat didn’t bother this bride!
