This was certainly a day that I will never forget. Dave and I are good friends and we shoot weddings together all the time. When he asked me to be their wedding photographer, I was thrilled and honored. Wildcliff Weddings & Events is located in a remote town called Blackwater, MO, outside Kansas City. This venue is seriously amazing. Its right on the water, and has more photo-worthly locations that I have ever experienced in a single wedding. Here is a bit about the venue taken from their website:
What was once established as the McDowell Rock Quarry, has now become a premier outdoor venue for Mid-Missouri. During the late 1890s, a dynamite blast hit an underground spring that filled the quarry and would eventually shut down operations. Later the property opened to the public as Wildcliff Campground & Resort. Families all over the mid-west came to camp and swim among the exposed cliffs and clear blue lake. In 1986, the campground closed and Wildcliff soon became a private residence to the Danner family. Over the last years, Wildcliff has hosted numerous family and community events with a landscape that is unmatched to anything Mid-Missouri has to offer. With over 300 acres of developed and natural landscape, you can find multiple locations to host your big event.
This wedding was off the charts fun. Its not every day that you I get to take photos of other photographers, while crossing a river in a sinking canoe with another photographer who, kind of looks like me :). I must say, I was all smiles during this one. Shooting such a cool couple in this amazing place made the day go by ridiculously fast. It was very challenging narrowing down my selection for this post, but I think I got most of my faves. Enjoy this massive post, and feel free to share it with your friends and family.
Many congrats to Sarah & Dave, and I wish you both the best!
