Excello Missouri Wedding Inspo.

It has been a rainy season here in the midwest (and around the country!).  On our way to meet our venue host, Amelia, at Emerson Fields Venue, we saw and were impacted by rivers that went well beyond their banks on the countryside near Columbia.  In the middle of this season, though, we sought out to elevate weddings in the Midwest through the creation of a Romantic Countryside Wedding shoot. For our color palate we were inspired by the natural colors of the surrounding area: shimmering blue, white, cream, and timeless greenery.  We hand painted our flat lay board in preparation for the delicate work of Emily Mayne Studio. Good Stuff China provided unique white and gold plates fit for a head table. Lindi is dressed in a unique, one of a kind dress handmade by Emily Hart Bridal. Emily provided a dress with a lace top and mesh backing and surrounded by a beautiful silk, flowing skirt.  Everything laid out together formed a complete and full package ready for the bride who loves fine art details and timelessness in the Kansas City, St. Louis, Columbia, or any of the surrounding areas.


Even though there was rain forecast for the area, God blessed us with sun and what felt like a dry bubble.  As the photographer of this team - I am incredibly grateful to get to work with such a wonderful group of local wedding vendors.  A special thank you to our florist, Amy, of Victorian Gardens who not only helped to make a vision a reality, but stood by to support everyone through the entire shoot.  We hope everyone can enjoy some countryside inspiration!
