Lisa and James waited a long time to find each other. When they decided to spend the rest of their lives together, they chose a romantic, destination elopement in the Missouri countryside. This fairytale wedding is the perfect beginning to their happily ever after.
How did your love story begin?
“We reconnected on Facebook 40 years after attending the same high school in a small town in Indiana. I love James’ genuine love and compassion for myself and others.”
Tell us a little about your elopement
“We planned to travel to Missouri for our elopement, so we had to find our vendors online. We decided to work with Hermann Hill Weddings and Rhonda Favor Studios, we highly recommend both. Not only did Rhonda take breathtaking photos, her willingness to help with all the small details throughout the day made our special day perfect. Hermann Hill Weddings took care of the entire wedding for us from 300 miles away. I wasn’t sure of exactly what to expect until the day we arrived, but they went above and beyond to make us comfortable and have everything planned ahead for our day. The scenery was beautiful, the atmosphere relaxed, the alter was nicely decorated, the flowers were stunning, and the cake was fabulous.”
Did you do a first look?
“Our first look was as I walked down the aisle towards my groom. I couldn’t stop smiling. Jim teared up.”
Tell us about your grand exit!
” It was just the two of us, hand in hand, smiling from ear to ear at one another!”
