For the summer issue of 417 Bride, the Social Graces team styled another amazing photo shoot for the magazine. Alex Crowder, the photographer, shot Aunna Beckemeyer, Stephen Morgan, and Sarah Thomas on location at Big Cedar Lodge in May. The photo shoot was produced by Jessica Kennon Spencer of 417 Magazine. Hair was done by Megan Ogle of Frost Salon and Melanie Gibbs of Karma Salon. The flawless makeup was created by Andie Reynolds of Lavaré Spa & Salon.
The gorgeous wedding dresses for Aunna and Sarah were selected from Ella Weiss Wedding Design, Gracie’s Bridal, and Normans Bridal. The tuxes and other fabrics for Stephen were chosen from Blackwells Men’s Clothing, Ella Weiss Wedding Design, and Town & County.
Here is a sample of the stunning pictures for the magazine!

For Easter this year, we had the pleasure of doing Mini Sessions for some really great clients. We wanted to share our cute fabric backdrop that we made, because it is so, so easy to do yourself!
First, a few pictures of our kiddos on our Easter set. :)
And, now, for the DIY…
Get your supplies: We chose neutral fabrics and ribbon.
Cut the fabric into strips (they can be as long and wide as you want).Knot the ribbon onto the rope. We chose to have a little overhang at the top. Use as a photo backdrop, wedding focal point or child’s room decor. Your options are endless!
Kindra and Phil celebrated their wedding on September 21, 2013 at their family farm. The couple chose Splashdrop Photography to capture the special day. Infused Catering provided the meal and Sugar Leaf Bakery created the delicious cake for the reception. Shannon Custom Floral designed all the arrangements, including the stunning bouquet, and decorated the reception tent. The yummy S’mores bar was designed by Social Graces. Kindra bought her beautiful gown from Normans in Downtown Springfield.
Here’s a sample of the gorgeous day!
Victoria and Chris celebrated their wedding on May 6, 2013 at Praise Assembly Church. The reception followed at The Veridian in Downtown Springfield. All of the stunning photographs were taken by Jared from J. Design Studios and David of Selby Films filmed the special day so the couple could remember it forever. At the reception everyone danced the night away to Nic Keith from All That Music. The delicious cake was made by Kayla Dominguez and linens and centerpieces were done by SBBon.
Take a look at their special day!
Thanks for letting Social Graces be apart of your big day!
One of our favorite little areas of Springfield, MO is Pickwick St. in the Rountree Neighborhood. It houses great places like Homegrown Foods, Imo’s Pizza, Pickwick Place and Zen Spa. It also is home to two our favorite places to get treats – Tea Bar & Bites and Elle’s Patisserie. To gear up for St. Patty’s Day, we decided to treat ourselves to a few shamrock treats. :)
These beautifully decorated sugar cookies are done by Tea Bar’s very own Eleanor. They aren’t just pretty – they taste delicious, too! You can see some of our other favorite desserts from Tea Bar, here.
At Elle’s, I usually go for a breakfast croissant, a chocolate truffle or a lavender ice coffee. But, we couldn’t resist trying out this festive white mint truffle. Do you have your sweet treats ready to go for St. Patty’s?
