When I met AnnMarie and Brady for the first time, it didn't take long to conclude that these two are totally meant for each other. AnnMarie is as sweet as she is gorgeous, and Brady is hilarious and charming. I was excited about their wedding for months, despite never having laid eyes on their venue. And their wedding day turned out to be perfect. AnnMarie and Brady were so relaxed and you could tell they were truly 100% present and enjoying every moment. This made photographing them an absolute joy.
The couple planned an elegant yet casual and fun affair at Les Bourgeois Vineyards just outside of Columbia, MO. The ceremony was held atop bluffs that overlook the Missouri River. After the ceremony, they threw an amazing reception for their friends and family. A lot of them traveled to be at the wedding, some of AnnMarie's family came all the way from India!
My husband was my sidekick again for this wedding, and AnnMarie and Brady truly made us feel like old friends. We likely would have stayed and partied with them, had I not been scheduled for an early morning session the next day back in St. Louis! We really enjoyed every aspect of this day. AnnMarie and Brady - thank you so much for being amazing people to work for! We had a blast and wish you both a lifetime and beyond of happiness :)

Hair/makeup // The very talented Danielle Shocklee is a close friend of AnnMarie's, and actually referred me to this amazing couple (thanks Danielle!). In my opinion, she is one of the best in St. Louis. She has such a talent for enhancing every bride's natural beauty. AnnMarie looked incredible on her wedding day!
AnnMarie's dress // Another close friend of the bride, Jessica, actually owns White Traditions Bridal here in St. Louis. Ann-Marie's dress was absolutely stunning and was totally perfect for her!
Venue // Les Bourgeois Vineyard in Rocheport, MO
Flowers // The flowers were done by Petal Pushers, which is owned by the stepmom of one of Ann-Marie's friends' (do you sense a pattern here?) :)
