I'm Jessica Lauren - a wedding photographer for happy couples who are stoked about their wedding day! I couldn't be more thrilled that you stopped by! This is where I share bits and pieces of my passionate heart, spontaneous adventures, and pretty pictures of my rad clients! Feel free to grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile! xoxo
Goodness sakes, if this wasn’t an absolutely incredible day – I don’t know what would be! When I first met with Pat and Kat almost a year and a half ago we had a blast chatting all about them and their day. But the one thing we were all fairly certain of was that it was likely to be pretty chilly! December 2nd in Missouri? You never know because it’s the Midwest, but we were bracing for the worst. Well, let’s just say we may have ended up with the most gorgeous Saturday of the year. Sunny and 65 – no one even needed a jacket! If that’s not amazing, I don’t know what is.
Everything about this day was absolutely flawless and it was so much fun seeing Kathryn’s vision come to life!! From her INCREDIBLE flower crown lovingly made by Ken and Cyndi of Petal Pushers to the beautiful, romantic setup of Silver Oaks, it was truly a one of a kind day that I couldn’t have been more honored to be a part of. There is something so incredible about watching two people commit the rest of their lives to one another that is so powerful!!
Pat and Kat – thank you so much for inviting me in to document your story!! You two are precious and I can’t wait to see all that is in store for you as a married couple!! Enjoy a peek into your beautiful day!!
A massive shoutout to our amazing vendor team!! Gosh, I work with some of the greatest people!
