Hometown Bliss: Counts + Kline

It's not everyday that you get to witness a childhood friend and classmate, not only become an amazing mother and business owner in your own hometown, but also marry the love of her life. Let's just say, it's the icing on the cake. Speaking of cake, can we just take a minute to give a shout out to Brittany and her fabulous cupcakes and desserts at Our Story Cafe! She is one talented lady!

But, now back to the wedding! It was an absolute privilege to capture this day for Brittany and Jon.

To say this day was a long time in the making, would be an understatement. The couple had been together eight years before tying the knot, but that made it even more perfect to see how much love this couple shares. Another thing that was so evident that day, was the outpouring of love they both have for their daughter, Taryn, and how big of a part she played in the wedding. 

This couple had such an intimate and family-oriented day that truly depicted how unique their family is. The wedding took place on a gorgeous hilltop overlooking a beautiful Washington winery. Following, we all made our way to a stunning wine cellar that set up such an amazing opportunity to shoot this couple's portraits. At the reception, held in a Washington brewery, there wasn't a dry eye as the best men gave such heartfelt stories recanting their days with the groom and their time in the service. Such a sweet, sentimental time for the bride and groom at the reception. And, the night would not have been complete without a little St. Louis tradition: Imo's!

This Fall wedding, which took place on the most perfect setting of a winery and brewery, combined with a absolutely gorgeous bride in the most unique blusher, will be one that we remember for a lifetime. That, and those moves from daughter Taryn on the dance floor! It was an absolute blast being a part of your day, Jon and Brittany!
