Cedar Lake Cellars Wedding | Fourth of July Wedding with a Firework Finale | Jen and Ryan

Weddings

What a pleasure it was to be there for Jen and Ryan for their Cedar Lake Cellars wedding in Wright City, MO! I already knew they were sweet as could be just based on their engagement session, but the apple obviously doesn’t fall far from the tree, because their families and friends were lovely as well!

Jen started the day getting ready with her bridesmaids and mom by her side. After a giggly first look between the bride and groom, we took portraits by the lake and bridge at the St. Louis area wedding venue and winery. Afterwards, friends and family from all around Missouri gathered on the patio and watched as the bride finally lived her dream of walking down the aisle to her groom! Dinner, speeches and cake cutting were followed by dancing on the open patio, string lights glowing above the guests.

To end the night, Cedar Lake put on the MOST amazing fireworks show that never seemed to end! All of the wedding guests gathered on the rooftop patio and watched as the couple held each other under the light of the fireworks. The only way to end this celebration was a giant circle of all the guests singing “Friends in Low Places”.

Definitely a wedding I’ll never forget. Enjoy these photos from Jen and Ryan’s special day!
