Lauren and Anthony's Southeast Missouri Wedding | Leopold, MO

Let me start by saying, I love Leopold. That small Missouri town and all of its wonderful people have my heart. I love that I can make that long drive down and it feels like I never left home...aside from the extra "y'alls" that I learned are necessary. ;) I swear every stranger that I meet from there instantly feels like an old friend. Lauren and Anthony were no different.

I first fell in love with these two (and the family's stunning property), during their engagement session. They have been together for A LOT of years, so their love has a comfortable strength that shows when they are together, and made photographing them easy. Their family and friends were just as obsessed and excited to see the two of them get married. The bridesmaids are such a kind, supportive group, and the guys had me laughing so. freaking. hard.

So, let's get to the photos! Stunning details. Emotional moments. Beautiful barn. AMAZING COUPLE.
