For  love & baseball!!!  Angela & Brian were married right in the heart of our Royals being in the world series!  It was  game 4 and the Royals were leading the series 2-1, the whole city was painted blue with excitement.  While I know Angela & Brian were so excited about the Royals in the world series, that was probably not in their mind when setting their wedding date :)  With all of that being said, I know plenty of brides who might have been very distraught with what to do about that during their reception.  But Angela & Brian embraced it, and went ahead and put the game on after dinner during their reception.  Lots of guests enjoyed watching the game in the bar area while others got their groove on the dance floor and some tried to combine those two acts :)

It is a really neat story of how Angela & Brian met.  Angela’s daughter’s best friend is Brian’s niece.  If I am remembering the story correctly, Brian was at his sisters sometime when Angela was coming or going with her daughter, Katie and of course asked his sister about her immediately :)  Angela and Katie seem like best friends and Brian and Katie have so much fun together.  I am just so happy for them to all become a family :)  Congratulations Brian, Angela & Katie!

I started the day out taking a few photos at the salon just down the street from the Stanley in Lees Summit where the wedding and ceremony was going to be.

What a wonderful day.  Catherine & Brent’s wedding day was just perfect.  I knew that it would be because even if something went different than what they had planned it would still be perfect  to them.  They were there to marry their soul mates and nothing would stop that.  It is always so nice to get to know my couples and see what they are all about and I had the pleasure of photographing Catherine & Brent’s engagement photos in Dallas, TX where they live and really get to know them.  And they are so wonderful.  They are a young athletic couple with tremendous faith.  It was really special seeing how important their church is to them and to their marriage.  They even flew in their minister from TX. After getting to know Catherine a bit, I feel like I can see my own daughter growing into the kind of lady Catherine is.  She is strong, kind, independent, self assured, funny and so beautiful on the outside as well as her heart.  And like Catherine’s parents, I would be very happy if my daughter someday finds a man like Brent.  I wish you a lifetime of football tackles and laughter :) Catherine’s dress was so beautiful.  I especially loved the lace shoulders :) bowden-5Catherine getting her make up done by the talented Mandy McKenna-who’s wedding I will be photographing in the spring!!!!!! bowden-6Prepare for flower girl overload here.  Couldn’t help it, she is just the cutest!bowden-14 She wanted to help bring the dress to Catherine :)bowden-30 bowden-33 bowden-43 bowden-59 There are certain looks Catherine has that remind me of Olivia Wilde, like this one :)bowden-64 bowden-66 It was really awesome to see how close Catherine and her dad are.bowden-69 bowden-95 The handsome groom prepping for the day!bowden-98 Brent was all smiles seeing his bride to be for the first time walking down the aisle :)bowden-154 bowden-172 Such a beautiful ceremony :)bowden-181 bowden-289 bowden-284 LOVE some sun flare!!!!bowden-300 One of my favorites here!bowden-302 This crew was FUN for sure!bowden-318 bowden-328 bowden-340 It is always fun to do a group of funny photo poses and this one is even more awesome with the photo bombers :)bowden-369 Another fave!!!!bowden-403 bowden-413 Maybe my top favorite.  It is like you can really feel how much they love each other :)bowden-421 bowden-438CHECK OUT THE CAKE!  So awesome!  If you can’t tell, Brent is a football player :)   And gosh, what a lovely evening for the cocktail hour outside at Holbrook! bowden-443 Now this series is so them.  I can’t quite remember what I was trying to get them to do but we definitely misunderstood each other and it turned out so funny and perfect :)  And seriously, Catherine could have ran a marathon in her dress!bowden-482 The golden hour…….awe……..how I love this time!bowden-500 bowden-507 I really love seeing engagement photos I have taken in print and was so excited to see this one as it was one of my favorites!bowden-511 bowden-588 bowden-589 Catherine’s dance with her father had a fun twist!  They broke out in several fun dances!bowden-603 bowden-636 Super fun dancing!  I really loved seeing their minister breaking it down!bowden-655 bowden-734 St. Thomas Aquinas!!!!!!!!!bowden-781 bowden-829 bowden-865Congratulations love birds!!!!  Thank you so much for trusting me with your big day!!!!!!
