Intimate Fall Wedding – Jon + Cheryl – Defiance Missouri

Missouri season changes still take my breath away! Jon and Cheryl’s fall wedding took place on a beautiful, rainy day in October. It was a scene from a storybook, with just their closest friends and family gathered at Jon’s family home. This warm, intimate event was the perfect way to celebrate their union and enjoy the day with their favorite people.

The next day, the sun broke through and we were able to take advantage of the colorful, midwest scenery. Autumn in all it’s glory, gave us some unforgettable images.
