Intimate Wedding at Bliss Plaza in Greenwood, Missouri

Heading to Bliss Plaza in Greenwood, Missouri for the Peterson-Guillen wedding, I knew that it was going to be an extraordinarily special day. This gorgeous, incredibly in-love couple met two years ago on an online dating site and fell in love. They planned a sweet, intimate wedding between themselves and their closest family and friends. Walking in, I couldn’t help but notice the extraordinary love and support Ashley and Eddy had going into their marriage. That love and devotion continued to be the thread that you can see and feel because it is woven into every shot my assistant and I captured.

When I asked Ashley if her wedding day was different from the way she had always imaged it, she replied, “Different and the same. Eddy's family is very conservative and mine is not! I think I imagined a bigger party atmosphere but in the end, it was a perfect balance.”  Ashley even stated that in hindsight, her wedding was a "piece of cake" and her favorite moments from the day involved little Coralena (Ashley and Eddy's daughter and flower girl) "playing with her flower petals, and banging on her bucket during the ceremony. It seemed to be everyone else's favorite part as well.

I find that one of the best things about small weddings is that they lend themselves to especially tender moments. They also somehow feel a little more at ease, and that’s exactly what the vibe was on this beautiful day in May. I’ll leave you with a few more of my favorite moments from the day, and with a BIG CONGRATS to the newlyweds!
