My first wedding of the 2015 season was with Lauren & Corbin’s wedding.  What a wonderful wedding with wonderful people.  It was an intimate rustic setting at the Historic Firestone Building.  There was a bit of change of plans last minute due to the elevator needing some repair.  But both the main level floor and the 8th floor are both indeed beautiful :)  We really wanted to get some of the rooftop photos though so we hiked up quite a few flights of stairs.  Lauren in heels!  She gets the bride of the year award 😉  Totally worth it :)  Also, a good reminder for me to get my butt in shape before wedding season starts, lol!

I will start with Lauren’s beautiful bouquet!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!  And thank you so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day!!!!!

Matt and Lauren were married near brookside and had their wedding reception by the plaza just a few weeks before Christmas.  What a wonderful way to spend time during the holidays.  Celebrating love, family and friendships.  It is already wonderfully festive near Christmas with the plaza lights but add a wedding to the mix with hints of evergreen decorations, it is enough to make one giddy :)  And you could see that Lauren & Matt’s family and friends were just that…..giddy from the excitement and joy.

The day was a bit cool and drizzly to start but the drizzle subsided and the gentlemen lent the ladies their jackets while we were out photographing the bridal party at the Nelson-Atkins  Museum of Art.

The day started out with everyone getting ready at the Plaza Marriott.  Lauren’s dress was simply beautiful.
