Danielle and Ryan | Lakeside Wedding at Authenticity Workshop
Lakeside Sunset Wedding with Magnificent Abundance of Blooms at Emerson Fields, Excello, Missouri
Abundance. Blooms. Elopement. Gather. Intimate.
These are the words that come to mind when I think of Danielle and Ryan’s weekend destination wedding at the all-white and quaintly secluded wedding venue Emerson Fields. Their intimate elopement in the heart of Missouri was abundant in close friends and relatives who were greeted with a beautiful lakeside ceremony during a perfect golden hour. An archway full of blooms and greenery allowed for the perfect pop of color and the freshest scents during the late fall nuptials. A slight breeze trickled over the blue waters allowing a romantic sparkle and carried the joy and laughter that exuded from the couple throughout the entire space.
Fitting with the couple’s destination wedding, the pair decided on a lovely dining experience on the back patio of the venue, allowing their guests to overlook the lake during sunset. A beautiful spread of florals and rocks from the bank of the lake paired perfectly with the simple farm-to-table feel of the tabletop. And instead of the traditional wedding cake, Danielle and Ryan opted for a lovely stacked brie cake and local wine to delight their guests (and not only were their guests eager to taste it, they were in awe of the lovely showpiece that sat atop an eye-catching velvet linen).
Danielle and Ryan’s wedding weekend was proof that a destination wedding doesn’t mean you have to travel over 2,000 miles away to say your vows, but instead you can create the romantic and intimate wedding of your dreams right in the heart of the Midwest!
