It was the beginning of the fall season in the heart of the Ozarks in Montreal, Missouri for Zoe and Cody’s intimate wedding in the country. They were married amongst the rolling hills, picturesque trees, and rustic barn at Where the Creeks Meet. Although the heat was playing tricks on us being the very end of September, the entire day, without a doubt, was simply magical and so full of love and happiness!
The moment I walked in the bridal suite where Zoe was getting ready, she greeted me with such warmth and kindness. And it was the exact same way as soon as I met Cody! I immediately knew it was going to be a great day! Zoe and Cody decided to share a private first look before their ceremony. They greeted each other with tears in their eyes and it was one of the sweetest first looks I have ever photographed!! They began reading their personal vows to each other before taking some romantic portraits and then some fun photos with their bridal party! The day also wouldn’t have been complete without their handsome pup,Catfish, who also joined in on some photos. Cody’s brother walked Catfish down the aisle and also officiated the wedding for them!
From the heartfelt speeches, the beautiful ceremony, to the wonderful couple and their amazing families…I loved everything about being apart of this special day for Zoe and Cody! They compliment each other and it’s so apparent how much they care for one another. They say a picture is worth a 1000 words, and I do believe they also reflect the authentic stories of a couple and how their hearts adore one another. Just scroll below and let the photos do the talking as it is so clear to see just how much these two are meant to be and just how much they deserved this perfect day!! I couldn’t be more thankful that I had the opportunity to be apart of it! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Nelson!!
