Thorncrown Chapel is one of those places that is always beautiful, no matter what the season is. Amy and Mark were married on December 1. Post leaf fall and pre snowfall the Ozarks in late fall and early winter may seem empty without the leaf canopy, but Thorncrown's surroundings reflect the beauty of winter. Amy's gown was amazing, and I was so drawn by all those textile roses. I love the texture they give to the photographs. And her bouquet of jewels was super unique.... and super heavy... wow.  The couple exchanged vows in front of a small group of family and friends and then proceeded to an informal cake reception at the Ozark Room in the Basin Park Hotel. The couple's love of nature and the outdoors was evident by the decor in the dining room. A great deal of attention was given to every detail.  It was a great pleasure to be present at this event and photograph this special day for Amy and Mark.
