Mary & Chris


The Bride’s family home in Alton, Missouri, was the perfect setting for this fall country themed wedding.  The lakeside Barn and meadow adjacent to the house was ideal for the outdoor Catholic Ceremony on a crisp fall afternoon.

Guests were shuttled from a nearby church parking lot to the Ceremony.  After the Ceremony, guests chose either to ride the shuttle or walk to cocktails on the back lawn of the house.  The fall theme was supported by a variety of natural florals, coordinating leaf place cards,and fan programs.The Dinner Reception and Dancing were held in the magnificent clear tent on the expansive lawn.Guest tables were adorned with unique floral and antique button centerpieces made by the bride and a photo booth complete with a trunk of costume accessories.After a scrumptious harvest buffet, guests were treated to a dessert bar of homemade pies and favors of jars of apple butter.
