Sometimes it's nice to go outside of our "norm" and explore new locations that spark creativity in our work! When Ashley and Garrett booked us and mentioned that their reception was at Wine Country Gardens in Defiance, MO, we already knew that their wedding images would be gorgeous! Even the name of the winery sounds beautiful and elegant! Their ceremony was held at St Ignatius Church in Concord Hill, and as crazy as this sounds, we had never shot a wedding there! When you mix new surroundings, evening light, laughter, and a stunning bride, the end result makes us want to shoot weddings forever! Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Gratza for an amazing day, filled with love, wine, creativity, and gorgeous light!
