Krista & Tyson were married on Nov 8th.  It was a beautiful crisp fall day, a bit windy but not too bad for the ladies in their dresses :)  Everyone started at the Westin Crown Center getting ready for the big day. The girls room was filled with bridesmaids, flower girls, their doggy, champagne, makeup, accessories and music.  It was so festive :)  While I was photographing the girls getting ready, Nate, my second photographer was photographing the guys getting ready.  And Mike Tsai was documenting the day with video, which I can’t wait to see! The whole day was wonderful.  I especially was excited for the reception at the Firestone building because I had not had a reception there yet and it was sooooo awesome!!!!!  Oh…and they had the Patrick Lentz band so I knew it would be a great party!

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.
