Kara & Tommy’s wedding day was one to remember.  I will remember that when Kara laughs everyone laughs and smiles right with her~impossible not to.  When Kara laughs, Tommy’s eyes reflect happiness.  Being able to spend a day documenting someones story and emotions is such a privilege.  And it certainly was wonderful being able to do so for Tommy & Kara and their families.  I know that I smiled, laughed and even cried along the day and even while editing the photos~esp. during the father/daughter dance.  You will see why in a bit 😉

I am going to tell the story a bit while showing photos :)

Also, I want to give a shout out to Melissa Pfannenstiel, for helping me photograph the day and Mike Tsai rocking the video :)

I started with the girls getting ready while Melissa went to photograph the guys getting ready!  How awesome is the glass the girls were drinking mimosas from?!  I am kind of crazy about pretty glassware :)


All of the nieces and nephews were sooooo cute and sweet!  And I had to include one of Miss Drew Proud~makeup artist extraordinaire~rocking the baby bump :)kara-24 kara-44

Kara had no idea that her mom and dad had a limo ready to take all of the girls to the church.  Her reaction was AWESOME!!!kara-68 kara-120

I had to wait until we arrived at the church to see the dress and Oh My Goodness!!!!!!  Love!kara-128 kara-170

Kara’s dad seeing her in her wedding dress and his gift to her was such a sweet moment :)kara-182

Another wonderful moment was when Tommy first saw his bride walking down the aisle.    He was happy to say the least 😉

And off to the reception at the Overland Park Convention Center!!!  How cute are the veggie shooters!!!kara-759 kara-898

Did I mention that Kare has 3 older brothers and Tommy has 3 sisters?!?!  Well, the brothers and sisters cut in on the father/daughter dance and mother/son dance.  Kara had no idea her brothers were doing that and oh my gosh, I was totally photographing with tears in my eyes as well as my 2nd photographer!  Good thing we still got the photos in focus 😉kara-925 kara-933 kara-953

And then the party was kicking!  Lots of really fun dancing!  Any future patrons to weddings I am shooting, you must know, if you end up shirtless on the dance floor~you will be on the blog :)  :)kara-1019
