I just love Joplin so much. We moved back here last October (though I haven’t lived in Joplin since 2009… Hey, home is home), and on the first day of November, Lauren and Brayton got married! The weather was gorgeous. Their first look was perfect, Christ’s Church of Oronogo made the perfect spot for their ceremony and formals, and then the Elks Lodge in Joplin glittered all evening long during their reception!
I’m a sucker for calligraphy, gold accents, and sparkler exits. Man, was their decor beautiful. The reception was definitely the highlight of the evening. There was great food by Mythos, an awesome DJ from Complete Music in Springfield, and tons of laughter and dancing. I can’t help but smile even as I look back through their photos now… what a beautiful day.
Joplin really does have so much to offer. I’m SO excited for this year’s weddings! And if you’re getting hitched this year, regardless of where, contact me so we can get “Photographer” checked off the list!
