My husband and I couldn’t have picked a WORSE wedding weekend, weather wise, is South-East Missouri, we had a tornado an hour away (in ST. Louis), where family members flew in and out of, we had flash-flood warnings all weekend, we had rain and lightning, thunder and had to change EVERYTHING the day of for our outside wedding….to be inside, at our reception hall…..
But to tell you the truth…it was the most beautiful day, for us, as our 2 families came together, worked so hard together to make the best our of a potentially horrible situation, we got AMAZING pictures, had a beautiful, tearful loving ceremony and a BLAST dancing all night at the reception.
I will hopefully post pictures soon, I am so blessed to have the family and friends I have, who made everything possible.
It’s a LOT of work to do a DIY wedding, but all the stress and freakout panic over the last nine months were worth EVERY second, because everyone loved all the unique fun things we did.
So happy it’s over, so excited to start my new life with my Husband and best friend!

Congratulations. I’m so glad to hear some good news coming out of the area. It’s been nothing but dread the past few weeks.
Where was your venue?

I completely understand! We got blasted up here in St. Louis County! Just think of it like ultra-good luck * 1000!

It was The Heritage Hall in Bonne Terre, zip 63628
My wedding was supposed to take place outside, but by 11am we realized it was gonna rain it’s butt off for my 4 o’clock ceremony, and sure enough, in the middle of my Minister talking, a big clash of thunder hit, we all paused and it was like everyone in the room, all 100 of us, had a little giggle and sigh of relief to eachother, because we all realized what could have been. It was a funny, silly, gonna-be-remembered-forever kind of moment.

Ugh… I can’t believe I didn’t think to look anywhere south of us. I grew up in Imperial so I’ve spent my fair share of time in Bonne Terre. I really love it down there too.
I can’t wait to see pictures. I’m so glad it all worked out for you.
