Boy oh boy, this has been a whirlwind time of year!  I have some wonderful fall weddings to share!  I was trying to get this wonderful wedding on the blog before I went out of town last week and there was just so much awesomeness that I couldn’t rush it 😉  I was looking forward to Lindsey and Robert’s wedding for many reasons.  One of course is how awesome Lindsey and Robert are to be around~they are so fun and full of personality.  I love how much they laugh together and how you can just watch them fall in sync in so many ways!  Two, I photographed Lindsey’s brother’s wedding last year so I was so excited to see Kathryn and Greg and their families as well :)   Three, I was sooooo excited to shoot a wedding at Mildale Farm!  I hadn’t been there before and it is so fun to be at a new venue, especially one as awesome as Mildale!

I will continue with the photos to tell the story :)  It was an absolutely beautiful morning at Mildale!!

One of my very favorite details of the day would be Lindsey’s dress.  It is the same dress that was worn by Lindsey’s mother and grandmother!!!  And it was absolutely stunning!!!

I love that Lindsey rocked her boots  part of the day and her pretty blues during the ceremony!!

The girls were relaxed hanging out while everyone was getting their hair and makeup done :)

woah!  did I mention how incredibly beautiful Lindsey is?

Mildale had a great man cave for the boys complete with antlers and a pool table :)

There is no way I couldn’t include silly boy photos :)

I loved Lindsey and Robert’s first look.  Lindsey just high tailed it up the stairs and was anxious to see Robert!!

Seriously?  holy wow!!!

Something about this moment of a father giving his daughter’s hand to her soon to be husband really get’s to me.  I know it is symbolic but I am not sure I can handle ever seeing my husband giving my Ally’s hand 😉  Tears just thinking about it, ha!

How cute is this little flirt blowing me kisses!!!

This is a great showcase of their personalities, love it!

The reception details were to die for!!!  The plates were all different colors and designs, found at thrift stores all around the city!!

My son was assisting me on this wedding and we both even had our names on our mason jars at our seat!  That was soooo thoughtful!!!  And the band was an awesome country band!  they were soooo good!  I forgot their names though so when I find out I will relink :)

What I haven’t mentioned is that Lindsey and Robert are the best swing dancers I have EVER seen!!!!!  With their parents coming in for a close 2nd and 3rd!  This was a super fun dance crowd!!!!

Another little bit of info: Robert used to be one of the Willy the wildcats!!!!!!!!  So of course they got him out there for a little wildcat action!!!!

And they had a current Willy attend the celebration :)

sparkler fun!!!

I love this!  It looks like a ghost fight :)

What a beautiful day and night it was!!  Congratulations to the newlyweds!!!!!!

I was already excited for Kendra and Spencer’s wedding day because she  has such a sweet, kind demeanor and I knew it would be a stress free day.  It is just not in her nature, or Spencer’s for that matter.   And I was excited to be taking the girls getting ready pictures at Kendra’s parents house.  Everyone was perfectly comfortable and it was personal :)  But what I didn’t know was how amazing all of the details and decorations of the day were going to be!  I was going crazy photographing all of the beautiful details!

While I met with the girls in the morning, I had no worries that my associate Nate would have a great time photographing Spencer and the boys getting ready downtown!  We all met at a fun little spot for Kendra and Spencer to first see each other on their wedding day and it was a sweet, beautiful moment to get their big day started :)

They were married at the Church of Resutrection in Leawood with their reception at Californos!   Jillian, the owner of The Vintage Petal, did an amazing job with all of the flowers!  The reception was just incredible!  Literally I could have taken a million shots of the flowers and decorations!!  One of my favorite things was the ladder that hung above the bridal table with the beautiful glass and candles tied to it!  Oh, well two super faves!  The popcorn bar!!!!!  I am kicking myself for not trying the popcorn with dill pickle sprinkled on it.  Just kicking myself while editing all of the popcorn table photos :)

On to the photos for the story :)

The invitations were soooooooo awesome!!!

I so love the pink belt added to Kendra’s dress, it was so pretty!!

another favorite detail was the awesome gift bag that went to some of out of town guests, what a cool kansas city tribute!

After Kendra’s mom and dad saw there baby girl in her wedding dress, there were a few tears shed :)

The boys getting ready!!

fun socks!!!

And the first look!  My angle and Nate’s!

all the pretty girls!!!

this shot Nate got of me taking a photo from the trolley cracks me up!

Dang!  Kendra’s eyes are mesmerizing!

I am insane over this!!!  Love the clouds and dynamics of this photo :)


so sweet!!!

And we were off to the ceremony!!!

Reception time!!!!

Spencer sang the first part of their first dance song to Kendra!!!

Congratulations!!!  Wishing you both a lifetime of sweet moments!!!!
