Greenery paired perfectly with the rolling vines for Emma & Justin’s rustic Missouri vineyard wedding in May.
Two wine barrels anchored the arch for the outdoor ceremony. Bridesmaids wore long blush gown for the wedding. Wooden signs directed guests for this rustic Missouri vineyard wedding.
How they met: It was a chilly evening in January of 2014. All of the students at Mizzou had returned to Columbia from their winter break and were preparing to start the spring semester. Emma’s friend Lexy suggested they check out The Penguin, a small Columbia bar boasting a stage with two dueling baby grand pianos played by entertainers who were famous for belting out the last five decades’ most popular requests. Justin had plans to go to The Penguin that night, too. As it turns out, Lexy and Justin knew each other beforehand and Lexy introduced Justin to Emma. They exchanged a few words, but Justin was nervous and the sparks didn’t truly start flying between them until about a month later when Justin received a Facebook friend request from Emma. The two texted for weeks and began spending time together. They had their very first date at a sushi restaurant where Justin discovered Emma’s inability to even remotely properly use chopsticks.
