We first met Alyssa and Shawn in person in Colorado for their AMAZING destination engagement session at the Garden of the Gods and the Painted Mines. We had so much fun hanging out and photographing them and their pup, Bea. We were absolutely obsessed with their engagement images, so of course we were amped for their unique wedding day!
They tied the knot (literally) at Cedar Creek in New Haven, MO. This venue is truly iconic with it’s modern barn, old-western style miniature town (complete with a saloon, of course), lake, golf course, and plenty of cottages to house traveling guests overnight. Family and friends were carted to the lakefront ceremony site by hayride, a first for us to encounter on a wedding day!
The reception was held in a modern romantic barn and had tons of different cakes, a cute DIY photo-booth station, and tons of hanging Italian lights for ambience. The dance floor stayed packed until the end of the evening when everyone headed down to the local saloon, located just feet away in the old-western styled miniature town.
We had so much fun capturing Alyssa and Shawn’s wedding day and we wish them many years of happiness and adventure together and can’t wait to see pictures from their honeymoon in Ireland!
