A Big Cedar Lodge Engagement Session in Ridgedale, MO | David & Makaela

It was her little place of heaven on Earth. Her father was a cattle rancher in southeast Kansas, and roaming the land that had always meant so much to her family was special in more ways than one. So that Christmas, when David suggested they take a ride around the property, of course she said yes. It had always been an activity she loved. So off they went - Makaela oblivious to the fact that this ride was particularly special. They talked as they drove, until David stopped unexpectedly. She thought they were just stuck in the mud, but when they both got out, David asked Makaela to be his wife. 

This post is extra fun for me because TODAY is Makaela and David's wedding day!! Since these two live in Colorado and came to Missouri just for the wedding, I met up with them on the day they arrived!! I had the pleasure of wandering around Big Cedar Lodge with them and watching their reaction the first time they saw the place they would soon to be married. And let me tell you, this place is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to share their wedding day with you, but until then, I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from our time together this week!!!
