Handsome Hanna & the ever so lovely Miss Megan had a wonderful wedding reception in Kansas City at the Hilton President.  I had the pleasure of photographing Hanna & Megan’s engagement session in NYC this summer. I already knew that photographing Megan was awesome as I took her senior photos and could remember clearly how fashion forward and sweet she is, but getting to see Hanna with her in NY was really wonderful.  Seeing them laugh, smile and just be so in sync with one another was my favorite part about being in NY :)  Of course I walked my husband all around the city until our feet were to fall off having fun as well :)

Hanna & Megan were actually married a month earlier in Beirut, Lebanon in the most gorgeous church I have ever seen.  I would have loved to have photographed them there too!  I was in awe at all of the loveliness from the slideshow they played at their KC reception.  Seriously.  Incredible.

But how fun is it to have two celebrations!  It was great for them to be able to share with friends and family who were not able to make it to Beirut and also wonderful for all that traveled here to KC for their celebration!

Big thanks to Jessica Moore for shooting with me on this great day too!!!!

I will start with Megan’s dresses!  Yes!  Two dresses that were amazing!
