I’m Stephanie Barnett, not a professional model. Just an everyday girl born and raised in Bonne Terre. I’m 26 and bartend at Hubs Pub. Lifetime local, graduated from north county high school in 2009.  Being the model for the shoot was great! When asked, I thought it sounded too good to be true. Wedding dresses and a professional photo shoot seemed to me like every little girls dream, and I’m so lucky I was picked to be a part of it all! I admit I was terrified at first, but they were all so professional and kind. I wish I could do it everyday! :) In the future, I plan to study in real estate. I’ve always loved this area, and love to see our community grow. I feel like it would be a good fit for me.  The dresses, oh I LOVED the dresses!! I would have picked any of them myself if I were shopping for my big day! I am very lucky to have had the opportunity to wear such beautifully detailed gowns (the jewelry as well) I definitely felt like a princess! Thank you again for the whole experience! It was an honor to work with all of you!!!
