Maddie + Blake | Barn at Riverbend Garden Party Wedding | Peculiar, MO

Let me start by saying, we love when we meet a couple who express to us a desire for their wedding photos capture the candid, sweet, funny, and emotional moments of their day.  Their day as it naturally unfolds.  Beautifully, intimately, personally.  That is how we know we are your people (and equally you, ours).   We both value the people who celebrate with you and the relationships that make those loved ones special to you.  Looking back at this wedding, we can’t help but smile and take a breath, as we remember all these perfect moments and people.   Heartfelt, kind and sweet; perfectly Blake + Maddie.

While Blake got ready in a cabin on the property, something special was arranged for Maddie.  She got ready in the upstairs of the family home of Kip + Kris, family friends and owners of The Barn at Riverbend. (The bridal loft and barn were just being finished at the time, so they graciously opened their home for their friends.)   After getting ready with her mom, Maddie decided to have a few moments with her dad and brothers.  I nearly cried myself, as they each expressed their love and happiness for sweet Maddie. After a private, emotional moment together on the hillside, Blake + Maddie had an intimate ceremony and garden reception.  Dancing, lawn games and a hysterical serenade by two of her bridesmaids, this was a relaxed and happy celebration.

Maddie + Blake, this is the kind of day we dream of and makes us delighted and grateful to to do what we do.  Thank you, with all our hearts!  xx, R+M
