I triple-dog-dare you not to smile when you look at these photos. :) Kenon and Annie are my friends, but also represent my ideal clients: emotional and expressive, completely trusting of me, and focused more on the love they share with each other, and their family and friends, than any other aspect of their wedding.
I remember my face hurting from smiling so much while I edited this wedding. I hope yours does the same after viewing them. :)
Annie borrowed her sister Elizabeth’s veil. I am a sucker for long veils!
Annie is not the only expressive one! This was so fun!
My friend Lydia Steinke of Her Song Photographs was my second photographer for this wedding. I was beyond pleased with the many beautiful, meaningful photos she captured that day (like the ones above and below of Kenon with his mom)! If you are based in Kansas City and looking for a gifted photographer, I highly recommend Lydia!
On her way to their first look. Check out her hands, clenched in excitement!
So much excitement!
Kansas City is know as “The City of Fountains.” They are everywhere and so beautiful!
If you didn’t read my previous blog post, Kenon is a classically trained dancer. I couldn’t resist making him do this silly photo with the dancing fountain statue ladies. :)
Another of Lydia’s beautiful photos!
A sweet moment when Annie’s dear friend Christina kissed her so hard on the cheek, she left a lipstick mark!
The ceremony started with 20 children walking down the aisle singing, “His love it never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me.” A magical moment!
Kenon with Annie’s beloved brother, who they didn’t think would be able to make it, but surprised her the day before by showing up at the rehearsal.
Could she smile any more? I don’t think so. :)
Everyone enjoyed a beautiful time of corporate worship.
Wes gave a great message and had everyone laughing!
Annie and Kenon’s reception was held at the Historic Firestone Building. One of the coolest venues I’ve ever gotten to work in!
Gelato for dessert!
I stole them away for a few photos on the rooftop, which overlooks downtown. The tricky part was this wall was high!
Perfect ending to a wonderful day!
