Alpine Park and Gardens Wedding Columbia, MO
{Lisa & Gus}

Our 2017 wedding season wrapped up with Gus and Lisa’s beautiful wedding at Alpine Park and Gardens. This lovely Mid-Missouri venue is just outside of Columbia but feels like a whole other world. Not only are the grounds gorgeous but it’s the perfect place to have both your ceremony and reception.

Gus and Lisa are connected to us in a couple different ways. Lisa works with one of our past engagement session brides, Kerri. And Lisa is also good friends with Meg and was a bridesmaid in Meg’s wedding to Michael last year. Nothing warms our heart more than referrals from past clients. And these two were such a joy to be around! Their fall engagement session a few weeks before their wedding was a fun time, so we knew their wedding wouldn’t be any different.

The wedding day started with both Gus and Lisa getting ready out at Alpine Park. I love all the details of Lisa’s dress; lace with faint stripe detail. After a quick check in with Gus putting on the finishing touches, it was time for their first look. If you’re a long time reader of our blog, you know that I am a fan of first looks. Check out the look on Gus’s face when he sees Lisa for the first time. You cannot beat a look like that! A real wedding moment for sure!

After the first look, we did a full portraits with Gus and Lisa and then some full wedding party photos. And then it was time for the ceremony.
Gus and Lisa were married in front of their family and friends while surrounded by the soaring trees and bathed in golden, fall light. Following the ceremony, we headed off with just Lisa and Gus for a few more portraits. One of my favorite photos is of Lisa smiling up at Gus. Her face reflects the happiness of marrying her best friend.

And then it was time to party! Gus and Lisa are a fun loving couple and their friends and family are no different. The dance floor was hopping and our photo booth was a hit that night. To cap off a seriously spectacular day, guests were treated to a fireworks display. There’s no better way to toast the happy couple than fire in the sky!

Thank you, Gus and Lisa, for letting us be part of this special day. It was our joy and pleasure to capture all the moments filled with love, laughter, and joy.

Cheers! Piper & Justin
