A historical destination wedding
Sorry for the lack of posting lately, but hopefully I make it up with this awesome one! This lucky Seattle wedding photographer got to travel to Missouri to shoot a beautiful, historical, destination wedding! Missouri doesn’t seem like a destination wedding kind of place, you say? Well maybe not, but this beautiful historical farmhouse sure was a destination for lots of friends and family coming from far and wide. Officially on the National Historic Register of Historic Places, it did not disappoint! The outside was surrounded by soybean fields and painstakingly decorated during the Midwest heat. The inside was quaint and charming; a perfect setting for photos!
Not only was the setting beautiful, but Emily, the bride who’s family owns the farm, was gorgeous. She had a genuine shining smile all day long. And her groom couldn’t have been happier to make her his bride. Photographing such a sweet couple is always a pleasure for me. And they know how to throw a party! This wedding was complete with a high-fiving cake topper, stick-on mustaches, more conga lines than I’ve ever seen in one night, a cap-gun send off, and a marching band (although that was a surprise for the couple)! Oh, and an adorable little ring-bearer who I swear was channeling Michael Jackson with his serious moves. Such a fun night with a fun couple.
Teresa Howe - These are great, great photos, Tracie! Wow!

We feel very honored and SO LUCKY that you flew all the way to our Missouri farm to shoot our daughter’s wedding! Your photos are absolutely amazing! We couldn’t be happier! You were so calm, composed, ALWAYS pleasant and accommodating throughout the entire afternoon and evening. VERY professional. You covered every detail with so much going on. We are truly grateful!! We worked extremely hard all summer to create a beautiful farm wedding with a touch of elegance but your photos capture the magic..and the dreams… that happened that evening… a true fairy tale wedding beyond our wildest dreams!!! We are touched by your beautifully written, heartfelt introduction and artistic collage of photos. We love you Tracie and give you

traciehowe - Cathy, how could I ask for a more touching reaction to those photos?! A thoughtful comment and review all in one! I was so happy to be a part of such a lovely wedding and such a wonderful family, if only for a day. Thank you so much for your kind words, and appreciating the photos as much as you do.
Carrie Birdsong - The expression of joy and love was felt by all who attended this beautiful occasion. I am fascinated that you enable those who view a mere photo the luxury of forever touching joy in the moment
traciehowe - Carrie, it was a beautiful wedding, and I was lucky to be there to capture the moments. Thank you for your comment!
Mary Honcoop - Another amazing blog by Tracie Howe! You know just how to put the right words to pictures that already tell it all! Love your selection & can never thank you enough for your time, patience, energy, & passion that you gave for this event….as Tina Turner would say, “You’re Simply the BEST!!” 🙂
traciehowe - Mary, I couldn’t think of a funny quote to respond with, but here’s a sentimental one by Bon Jovi: “If you could see yourself like others do, you’d wish you were as beautiful as you”. In every way! I could never have done ANY of it without you.
