Wentzville MO Quail Ridge Park Wedding Party Photos

Quail Ridge Lodge Wedding in Wentzville, MO: Melissa and Ryan

Melissa and Ryan had seriously the coolest wedding I've gotten to photograph in 2024. The theme was romantasy, which if you read any fantasy and romance, is the all the rage in books these days. I loved how they incorporated their love of books and reading into their wedding decor. Melissa and her mom designed all the tables, which were decorated with fantasy books, and all the table signs had different fantasy worlds. SO cool!

They were married at Quail Ridge Lodge this past March, and it was such a lovely celebration of a beautiful love. Melissa's wedding dress was so gorgeous - I love dresses with corsets. They're totally my favorite! Her wedding cape that she wore to some of her portraits outside made her look like Belle in Beauty in the Beast, which was so fitting with the fairy tale and fantasy vibe of her amazing wedding.

The couple had two ribbon send offs, one after their ceremony, and then later at the end of the night. What an absolute party this was! Everyone was on the dance floor and danced the night away, and guests who didn't want to dance could hang out and play board games. SUCH A COOL thing to add to your wedding reception!
