Poolside Wedding Reception at Haseltine Estate in Springfield, Missouri

Ohhh this day. I remember it like it was yesterday. Why? Because it was PERFECT. Anna and Ryan's wedding was such a dream, that it inspired me to have my outdoor wedding in late September. Not a cloud in the sky, a warm day turned into a slightly chilly evening. It wasn't just due to chance. According to The Farmer's Almanac, September 25th has historically had a low chance of rain in Missouri, which made for a perfect wedding date. And top it off with the perfect wedding venue? Perfect day!

Let's talk details. Special shoutout to the bride's mom for being a part of the day in such a thoughtful way. Not only did she bake the wedding cake, she also hand made Anna's dress. Truly so special. Gold accents, white linens, light florals & blue goblets that match the bright blue pool so well. Upon arriving to the mansion, guests were welcomed into cocktail hour with their own personalized tequila shots. Yum?? Guests wandered around the terrace and chatted while Shaun Munday sung some bangers with a soulful twist while playing a bass guitar. A whoollee vibe. As guests sat down for dinner, the Arkansas Razorbacks were playing which of course meant they had to call the Hogs! Speaking of dinner, guess what was on the menu? All of Anna and Ryan's favorites: breakfast, street tacos, and Mediterranean. Loved all of these options prepared by Simply Delicious Catering.
