I’ve been counting down to this fall, Kansas City Intercontinental Wedding since I was introduced to Madison & Jay last year! To say it was a dream to see all of this come together is an understatement. From the vendors, to the couple, there were endless details that made October 13th one that will not […]
Earlier this month Gary & Vanda scraped their European wedding plans for a Ringling Museum Elopement. After several years together, Gary proposed last fall and they planned to get married in Europe, where Vanda is from. But soon they realized they really just wanted their children to surround them. And the idea to get married on the incredible Ca’d Zan grounds (just steps from their home!) started to come to life!
Things can’t quite get more perfect for me than NYC in the fall, so, you can imagine my excitement when Maddie & Eran said “yes!” to having me photograph their Central Park Boathouse Fall wedding last Sunday! A little backstory A year and a half ago I had the opportunity to photograph one of my […]
Kaylee & Seth hadn’t ever met me, but, Kaylee works for the same department at K-State that I used to and the legacy/relationships there run deep! I’m grateful that her bridesmaid and friend, the amazing Courtney, recommended me to her and several months later, I was back in The Little Apple for their K-State Wedding!
She and Seth are such kind people who truly love their friends and family. Even with over 200 people in attendance, they made their way to every person during their reception!
Sarah & Ryan met in school. High school that is! The last decade + has taken them on a journey of love, friendship, college, careers, and long distance. But this summer, they (according to their friends “finally!”) said I Do! Chesterfield, Missouri is their home so of course it made sense to celebrate there– a perfect St. Louis summertime wedding hosted in The Doubletree’s phenomenal tent & reception spaces! Sarah got ready at her family home, friends and family from all seasons of their lives gathered, and Imo’s pizza was delivered as a late night snack to keep the dance floor going! It was truly such a special day!
As you all know, #storieslovewrites is the hashtag I use for my weddings because it encompasses the incredible legacy that happens through marriages. It’s really amazing that two people can come together and literally build generations out of their love, isn’t it?! Needless to say, my old soul heart (that also studied Marriage & Family Therapy in College!) thrives in the details, the stories, the history & the memories that come forward on each wedding day. So, you can imagine my thrill when this year’s October bride, Madison, shared about a very special portrait she wanted me to make when I was home in KC last week.
