Wedding season really kicked into gear for me the with Paul and Allie’s wedding being the first of every weekend for a few months booked for weddings!  Which is super exciting because I get to eat a lot of cake 😉  Just kidding….but I do love cake :p!

This wedding was pretty special as it is another wedding where I have been blessed to have worked with some of the families in the past.  I have photographed the groom’s senior photos and more senior photos and weddings and family photos and some of their friends weddings too!  I loved seeing all of them and getting to know Allie’s family too!  Super wonderful families coming together!

Their wedding was at the Red Barn Farm in the new barn and it was my first time shooting there!  It was so lovely!  A photographers dream!  Speaking of photographers dream, Allie had a whole line up of fabulous vendors making every little part perfect!  Starting with Wedding by Hannah, always such a pleasure to work with!  The barn was just so beautiful with all of the flowers by Good Earth Floral Design Studio and all the goodies from Ultra Pom Event Rental!  The photo bus was there making extra fun for the guests!  The food and drinks were amazing!   I am going to have to come back to this with some other vendor love!

As lovely as the whole event was it was nothing compared to the obvious love that Allie and Paul shared for each other.  Together they were so at ease and  just being around them made you feel happy.  It is hard to describe what I could see of the two of them together on a blog but anybody who knows them will understand when I say they just fit together perfectly :)

Big shout out to Mike Tsai for capturing the day with me and of course for the selfies :)

I have about a bazillion photos to share……just couldn’t stop!

Chris & Katie were married a couple of weeks ago at Longview Mansion on one of the loveliest days we’ve had.  And it was so fun to shoot at Longview again!  It is just so dang pretty there!  It was such an amazing day and absolute home run of a reception 😉  I know that I am not the only one still talking and thinking about all of the fun had at their wedding!

It was even more awesome because I know them and they are part of a community of great folks here at Lake Lotawana and Lee’s Summit.  Burt (everyone calls him by his last name) was my hubby’s roommate before we got married and they have known each other for a long time.  I hadn’t gotten a chance to know Katie very well before they were engaged as I think I miss a lot of fun lake parties while shooting weddings on Saturdays, lol!  But getting to know her and her daughter and even Burt better through their engagement and wedding was really really awesome and makes me even happier that they found each other!  And so happy that Katie liked my photography and trusted me with their memories :)  Yay!!

The sun was shining, the guests were smiling, the energy of the day and evening was palpable.  DJ Fernando was wonderful as always (best damn dj ever!) but the fact that him and Burt are friends and used to play baseball together made it even better!  The speeches were all wonderful but NO ONE will forget how they felt after hearing Katie’s daughter Kaia’s speech.  Seriously.  Sooooooooo good!  I might cry just thinking about it!  Lucky that my assistant Paige Kime was recording it on my other camera :)  And lucky that Paige was running the camera for a bit so my husband could spin me around the dance floor a time or two ;)!

It was so fun seeing everyone so happy and having so much fun.  I am pretty sure 90% of the guests were all friends.  Which meant the dance floor was crazy.  And also means that I might be posting a hella lotta reception photos and maybe a few that I wouldn’t normally post but since I know the culprits to any mischievous photos, no holding back!  Hahahahahaha!!!!!!  The video’s were too long to post on my blog so I will try to make a separate fb upload for the videos!

Cheers to BurtyandtheBride!!!!!!!!  See you on the lake!
