This past May I had the pleasure of documenting a gorgeous wedding at Unity Village in Lee’s Summit, Missouri! Although severe thunderstorms had been forecasted, and we were creating a list of back-up plans, the sun came out and there were so many smiles that graced the start of the day!
Unity Village is a stunning 100+ year old venue that hosts weddings of all creeds, traditions, shapes and sizes. It was the perfect venue for this amazing couple. The day started off in the Bridal Suite, with all the bridal party in attendance. The brides didn’t want your traditional reveal, instead they wanted to share those moments of preparation together.
We toured the campus and strolled alongside the rose gardens and gorgeous fountains that really set us up for some beautiful back-drops. The light was beautiful at this point in the day…
Finally, we headed to the ceremony, which was in a private courtyard garden in front of the couple’s closest friends and family, adjacent to the reception hall – which was lit up with natural light from the beautiful windows that looked out onto the ceremony. Toasts, dancing and a delicious meal catered by the venue followed. The night would not have been complete without a romantic sunset session on the top of the Unity Tower! Congratulations you two love-birds, what a beautiful day it was and what a beautiful love you two share!
When I decided to add wedding photography services, I knew I wanted to be 100% ready for the task. Wedding photography is not just about providing beautiful photos. It's about being able to aid in the wedding planning process and making the actual wedding day go smoothly. We want all your dreams to come true, right? This is why I provide all my brides with a customized wedding day photography timeline and a token of my appreciation -- a bridal welcome package. This is not just a treat box; although there are some nice goodies included. Each box is different and comes with my very own bridal guide that gives you details on what the day will be like, and tips on what you can be prepared for ahead of time -- so you can sit back, relax and enjoy. I want your wedding day to be a memorable and fantastic experience. If you are interested in any of my wedding and engagement package offerings, visit my WEDDINGS section of my website.
It was the beautiful summer day Justin and Sarah had hoped for. They gathered with their family and friends at Christ United Methodist in Independence, Missouri to celebrate their union in marriage.
Imagine a light filled church with stained glass, light coming through the windows creating a trail of color down the aisle. Handmade decor (by the bride and family) and arrangements sprinkled through out the ceremony and reception spaces. Family and friends looking on as the bride is guided down the aisle by her son, to be received by the most loving eyes of her now husband. When you have so many moments and elements made with love, and a connection as strong as these two, nothing can compare... making this wedding beautifully unique. Enjoy these highlights from their memorable day!
