Summer Wedding at 425 Downtown in Springfield MO
In the midst of COVID-19, grooms Seth and Wyatt had to adapt their wedding to follow their state, county, and city guidelines. They planned their summer wedding at 425 downtown in Springfield, MO originally to be in May but then postponed to July.
Seth and Wyatt had always planned their wedding to be kept intimate, just family and close friends. With the threat of the pandemic it made that choice even clearer. They shortened their guest list even further so ensure their 65 guests would be safe and comfortable.
425 Downtown was the perfect venue for their wedding, it was right in the heart of downtown Springfield. It’s a spacious urban venue with red brick walls, exposed dark wooden beams, an in house bar, and a show-stopping chandelier.
Seth and Wyatt kept their decor simple and elegant. Sheer white draping for their alter and timeless white table cloths. Their decor really kept the focus on the venues effortless beauty.
Which in turn, kept the focus on the couple. The grooms planned their day around celebrating their love, and didn’t get caught up in the stress of wedding planning or trying to keep things “traditional” for their summer wedding at 425 Downtown.
They had a joint wedding party of their closest friends. This made their photos extra fun because they all took their photos together instead of having two separate groups. We took photos outside of the Hotel Vandivort which is just a short walk down the street from 425 Downtown.
Wyatt and Seth also walked down the aisle together, which I absolutely love because they are heading into marriage together. Taking these first steps as partners, hand in hand.
I love when couples plan the wedding they want instead of the wedding they think they need to have. It’s important to choose which traditions work for you and your partner and which ones can be forgotten. Don’t be afraid to shake things up, create something new, and make it completely YOU!
