Kate and Lane lucked out with the most lovely July weather in Columbia, Missouri for their wedding at The Broadway Roof! We started their day with a “first look” photo at the Grindstone Nature Area. I think one of my favorite pictures from their portrait session was when Kate’s dad suddenly surprised us in the woods in search of his car keys! I wish I had caught Kate’s voice on camera saying, “Daaaaaaaaaad!”. Brought me right back to many an embarrassing dad moment in high school.  ;)

After Grindstone, we headed to Sacred Heart Church in downtown Columbia for their ceremony. It was a good thing we were indoors because it ended up raining like crazy immediately after Kate walked down the aisle! After the ceremony, guests headed down the street to The Roof at The Broadway, for a patio wedding reception overlooking downtown Columbia! This is a new posh spot in town for a wedding reception, and although they only allow afternoon events right now, that could change in the future. The Roof has a covered indoor area in case of inclement weather, and the patio has gorgeous views of downtown Columbia and toasty fire pit seating areas where guests can gather around if it’s chilly to warm up!
