Joe and Rachel | Blue Bell Farm Wedding
Late Summer Wedding with Rolling Countryside Ceremony and Pastel Toned Soirée in Fayette, Missouri
Middle of Missouri, or halfway across the world? Can you believe that this intimate garden wedding happened within the rolling hills of Fayette, Missouri?! When I walked around the corner through the lush gardens at Blue Bell Farm and caught a glimpse of the jaw-dropping ceremony with the rolling countryside backdrop styled by owner Jamie and Sugarberry Blooms florist Emily, I felt as though I was transported back to Tuscany, Italy.
When Jamie of Blue Bell Farm approached me this spring to photograph a summer soirée that she had been dreaming up for her venue, my answer was an emphatic “YES!” This estate is one of my very favorite places to find myself with film camera in hand. Paired with incredible and delicate floral design by Emily at Sugarberry Blooms, I knew this wedding was going to be pristine and posh - and it certainly was. From the upscale refreshments bar with an elegant, hand-painted signature drink menu to the darling mismatched pastel-toned dining tables, this wedding was full of darling, yet elegant and thoughtful sentiments.
I loved working with these talented vendor friends!
