Tree ID.... not enough clarity in that picture to be sure so I won't offer anything other than the suggestions already made. At the moment redbud makes the most sense but....
The flowers look most like a form of woodland phlox and the apparent height fits the bill. The flowers of most of the cultivated phlox are fuller and slightly more rounded. My guess is that it is a white cultivar of the wild form. I found one sample of a white form at Lazy S farms for comparison: Phlox divaricata 'Fuller's White'* -** Woodland Phlox 'Fuller's White'
Here are some close-ups on that bush. I don't think it is a redbud because we have two redbuds that were purple this spring, and this bush has always been green.
Thanks for identifying the phlox! I appreciate everyone's help.
If they are growing outside in Missouri, then definitely not ficus or trachelospermum (too cold in Winter). The tree doesn't resemble ficus carica and that is the only ficus that has a fig of a chance in MO.
I would go with the lilac and phlox identification also-
