March Sunflower Hill Farm wedding | St. Louis wedding venues

filed in

Caitlin and James’ very end of winter Sunflower Hill Farm wedding in Augusta, MO was nothing short of perfect! Its always a gamble here in MO with the weather, really no matter what season it is! But for the very beginning of March in St. Louis, Caitlin and James could not have had a more beautiful day! The sky was bright blue and there were white, puffy clouds across the sky- definitely this wedding photographer’s favorite kind of day!

From the moment I arrived, it was evident this day would be nothing short of magical. Every detail, meticulously woven with love and care spoke volumes about this beautiful couple’s journey together. The sunflower theme, elegantly intertwined throughout the day, served as a radiant symbol of the warmth and joy that Caitlin and James emanate.

As beautiful as the decor was, it was the palpable love and adoration that surrounded the couple that stole the show. From the tears of joy shed by their nearest and dearest to the heartfelt moments shared between Caitlin and each bridesmaid, the day was a testament to the profound connections they’ve cultivated.

As we ventured into the morning, I had the privilege of witnessing intimate moments unfold- each bridesmaid learning why Caitlin had chosen them to stand by her side, a gesture that brought tears of gratitude and love. It was a sweet prelude to the day’s main event, setting the tone for the love-filled festivities to come.

Before the ceremony commenced, we took our time capturing cherished family portraits, witnessing the genuine affection and support that Caitlin and James’ loved ones showered upon them. What a testament to the depth of love and connection that surrounded this couple as they were about to embark on their journey together as husband and wife.

Just as the sun started to dip below the horizon, casting a warm glow over the landscape of the stunning Sunflower Hill Farm, Caitlin and James exchanged vows- their eyes locked in a tender embrace that spoke volumes of a love that knows no bounds. It was a moment of pure, unfiltered emotion, etched forever in the hearts of all who bore witness. One of my favorite moments of the whole day was the look on James’ face when Caitlin walked down the aisle with her dad. Capturing tears from an emotional groom is one of my all time favorite things about weddings!

After the ceremony, there was JUST ENOUGH light left to get some stunning couple’s portraits in front of their gorgeous venue, and then we made our way into a packed house full of laughter, joy, and celebration that greeted the new bride and groom. From every interaction to every speech given and every embrace shared, as I documented each moment, I couldn’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude for being entrusted with the honor of capturing their love story. A personal highlight of the night was when I went to present them with a same day slideshow of some of their images. I never promise it to any couple, but I go out of my way to be able to hand them my ipad with a slideshow of images that were taken throughout the day, and so far, I’ve been able to do this for all of my couples! The reactions are always amazing! The bridesmaids’ reactions to said slideshow are included in this blog post.

In the end, Caitlin and James’ wedding day at Sunflower Hill Farm was a symphony of love, woven with threads of laughter, tears, and unbridled joy. What a blessing to bear witness to their journey! I will be forever grateful to have been chosen to document the beginning of their forever!

Here’s to a lifetime of love, laughter, and sunflowers in bloom!
