Every special day deserves a special blog post. I’ve been wanting to share Cierra and Lou’s story here on the blog for some time! This past fall, Missouri saw many storms come and go. On Cierra and Lou’s big day there was no exception. While many couples stress over a rainy wedding day, Cierra and Lou took it with a grain of salt. At Lake Shore Plaza in Lake Lotawana, Missouri, Cierra and Lou chose to move their ceremony indoors in lieu of their rose garden ceremony for their comfort of their guests. A few tears were shed in the beginning, but once the couple read each other’s private letters to one another, those tears of disappointment turned into tears of great joy. For no rainy day could break their spirit and the love these two have for each other.
The ceremony hall was decorated in coral and navy décor and lights. A veil of white draped the ceiling and lights glimmered as the bride and groom said their vows. There were tears of joy, laughter and warm embraces. As guests sat from their tables, no one had a second thought of the storm that was passing over. It was a magical moment. As the ceremony ended and the storm passed, the newlyweds and their bridal party crossed the street to the lovely rose garden across the street, which was now glistening from the afternoon rain shower. We strolled down to the lake docks and captured love birds embrace as the sun as it began to peek out from the clouds onto the happily married couple.
The evening resumed with toasts, dancing and cake – as well as a few fun shenanigans. This family really knows how to have a good time! Congratulations Cierra and Lou!
