Joely and Dakota's WeddingDay | Rose Blossom Hill Rayville MO
Joely and Dakota had a beautiful wedding at Rose Blossom Hill (one of our favorite venues!)
These two are truly meant to be and have the sweetest little boy together! They are playful, fun to be around, and when they look at each other you just feel SPARKS!

They had a very smooth wedding day with some beautiful weather, a bit of wind to add for some gorgeous veil shots, and they were surrounded by almost everyone they loved most.
Joely had such gorgeous details!! The blues and blush together were stunning!
I remember walking in to their getting ready room and the girls were just having SO much fun! Everyone was full of love, excitement, and were overjoyed to be here for this beautiful couple.
Seeing Joely with her sweet friends, her adorable Momma, and her beautiful baby boy.. it made me emotional! I love having such a fun connection with the KQP brides and it's such a dream to watch their dreams come true.
I showed these photos to Joely as she was getting ready and she was tearing up at the adorable sweet moments between her boys!
The first looks while getting ready are always SO emotional and so much fun!
Dakota's reaction to her walking down the aisle was EPIC
Joely of course was STUNNING!
Their ceremony had a beautiful glow that was just stunning!
Their sweet boy was so happy his mom and dad were married he came out of the ceremony ready to PARTY!! It was the cutest thing!
Notably missing from the day was Joely's brother. He passed suddenly before her wedding day but he was there in spirit! There were so many beautiful moments where you were overwhelmed with the emotion of his absence but my favorite was this moment when her other brothers surrounded her in a big group hug. I also believe there wasn't a dry eye in the house during the reception when everyone surrounded them in song singing Journey (his favorite) and letting it all out!
The first dances always bring tears to my eyes.. Forever lovers first dance as husband and wife, the daddy holding his little girl as he always dreamed would happen, and the Momma sending her little boy off to be the man she raised him to be. It's epically emotional for us as parents and the photographers and it's the most amazing experience. I shed so many tears during these moments.
Joely and Dakota, I pray that this year brings nothing but blessings to the both of you and that you consistently remember your reasons for marriage. May you grow in your love for each other and the Lord. We love you both!!
