Bryan and Ashley | Missouri Wedding Photography

Ashley booked me for her October 2012 wedding in the spring of this year.  From the first time hearing about her details, her back yard wedding at her dad's Christmas tree farm, the brides maid's dresses, the cake pops and fall theme...And most importantly marrying Bryan, her best friend, I was so excited to be asked to document her day!  
However, with the drought that hit the mid-west this summer came some bad news, a neighboring trash fire got out of control and spread through out all of her dad's trees down to the last one.  Ashley & Bryan showed the gift and character of true perseverance and even with the wedding approaching came forecasts of thunderstorms, straight line winds and tornadoes. 
Praying all the way to Diamond, Missouri, peace settled over the day.  
Ashley hired a tent for the festivities, they had one beautiful tree in the back yard with gorgeous color
 and we focused on her details!  
I am so blessed to have been a part of their day 
and only hope Bryan and Ashley will remember their overcoming obstacles that day
as they overcome throughout their life together.
