Oh my gosh!  What an incredible wedding to photograph!  First off, I was already super excited to photograph such a beautiful bride with freckles and dimples to die for, second, the day was filled with beautiful moments and crazy fun!

Betsy & Jim started their day getting ready at the Kansas City Country Club, where they were having their reception.  I was ecstatic about the beautiful light pouring in the bridal room.  Crazy awesome photos straight out of the camera :)  All the bridesmaids were so lovely as well-I hope I get to photograph some of their weddings as well :).  Betsy’s robe and her mothers robe were adorned with beautiful lace made by Betsy’s mom!  While I was taking photos of all the girl fun, my second photographer, Nate, was capturing the guys getting ready and smoking cigars…..you know…guy stuff :)

I will start with the girls room :)
