Jess + Dan | Wedding |

Lady of the Lourdes | Columbia, Missouri Wedding

It’s here! Jess and Dan’s gorgeous wedding shot in Columbia, MO two weeks ago is finally live!  just know I met this sweet couple when they were in a former VCP Couple’s Wedding two years ago! That bride is (was) expecting as a Bridesmaid in this wedding! I can’t say enough how much I enjoy working with groups of friends as they all begin to get married and grow their families! It is so rewarding to catch up and really put all of my love into their special day!  Jess is one of those people that is like a magnet, you can’t help but be drawn to her warm smile and big heart! Dan is the silliest, smiliest groom I have ever seen. His love for his bride was just breathtaking to see all day. I would literally catch him looking at her with a big grin on his face!  It was the sweetest!


The details in this wedding were beyond touching. From the “Love You” bracelet made from the Bride’s late mother’s very own handwriting to the flower girl’s bouquets from Jess’ high school proms. This wedding not only honored those that could not make it, but uplifted all of those that could. These family’s truly became one and I am so honored I got to capture it all! Enjoy.
