A Fall Wedding in Black Water, Missouri

November 21, 2022

Now this is a true FALL wedding! Hollyyy smokes, Chelsea and Justen’s wedding in Black Water, Missouri was magical. I originally met them because I shot their destination engagement session in Zion National Park and afterwards they booked me for their wedding. Traveling to their home state of Missouri for their fall wedding was such a cool experience. Everything about it WAS GORGEOUS, this California girl was in HEAVEN over the true fall colors and the property was absolutely stunning!!

There are SO many details and moments of this day that I need you to pay attention to. THE FIRST LOOK, like damn, we were all in our feels. Chelsea and Justen both bursted out in tears and it was the most pure and real moment. I just love them so so much! Their venue was super unique, the guys got ready in a cave… like what!?! We had to row ourselves over there on top of a little boat platform. SO DOPE. (See pics!)

One of my favorite things about the day was their emotions and how in the moment they were. Justen cried ALL DAY, it was so precious, he loves his bride SO MUCH. Seeing all the love surrounding them, and all around how happy and thankful they were was truly amazing. I felt like I was a part of their crew all day!
