The Vineyard at the Riverbend Chapel Wedding

Hello, dear blog readers! 

I’ve got another wonderful wedding for you today! The cute couple consists of Bianca and Vali, two people that anyone would love to know. I had the honor to photograph their engagement session in Schaumburg IL.

Their wedding day was truly special. It took place at the Vineyard at the Riverbend Chapel in Washington, MO.

The bride’s dress was seriously gorgeous! Bianca and her bridesmaids got ready at the venue while Vali got ready at his friends’ house. The first look took place on the terrace at the venue. A beautiful background surrounded the moments of seeing Bianca for the first time as a bride.

The couple had a beautiful ceremony in the Riverbend Chapel. All their friends and families were there. Even groom’s friends from Michigan made it! The emotion I captured in Vali and Bianca walking down the aisle, was truly priceless!

We had a lot of fun taking wedding pictures, as well.  The venue is absolutely breathtaking, the food is wonderful and Tonya plus her team just made the day absolutely perfect.

The wedding reception was at the lower level of the Riverbend Chapel with still beautiful view over the Missouri river.

Bianca and Vali were such a delight to work with and we decided to drive to St. Louis and get some night time photos by the Arch and by the river.
