Wedding | A Modern Wedding, Featuring Floating Florals & Elegant Details

Well it’s been quite awhile since I last posted a wedding! I’ve been drowning in high wedding season over the past few weeks, as well as, started my own magazine company! Because why wouldn’t I want more to do?! For information on that check out our Instagram, HERE. Enough about me, let’s talk about this beauty of a wedding.

Brooke and Kyle put on one of the most fun, most hip, most beautiful weddings I’ve gotten to capture. They also are arguably one of the most groegous couples on the planet. Don’t take it from me, gaze upon their beauty yourself! The elegant details, emotional moments, and drunken shenanigans made this one of my most lively weddings this year! There were so many lovely moments to choose from, but here’s a few (truly a few) of my favorites.

Wedding | An Elegant, Greenhouse Inspired Wedding

Oh wow. I have so many wonderful things to say about this wedding! Firstly. Morgan and Cameron were two of the kindest, sweetest, most genuine people. Living in Savannah, GA at the time of planning their wedding, I wasn’t able to meet with these two until mere days before the event, but we’d been exchanging emails since their booking in late January. Originally having met in school in Sedelia, MO these two made it practically around the world and back before meeting again in college and falling in love. Having lived and visited many different parts of the country they picked the central location of Kansas City to tie the knot, before moving to Orlando, FL literally a week into marriage.

I generally avoid summer weddings, but when Morgan told me I was a referral from The Cottage Rose she immediately had my attention. Morgan had wanted to get married in a greenhouse (which makes total sense, since I can think of at least three gorgeous ones in GA alone), but with the importance of tradition selected Our Lady of Sorrows for their ceremony, and Bride and the Bauer for their minimalist, elegant greenhouse inspired reception. This wedding was utterly gorgeous from start to finish, and their vendor team totally killed it. With classic elegance, a donut bar, and friends from around the world I couldn’t be happier they selected me to document their wedding day.

Couples | Modern Industrial Meets 19th Century Architecture for this Urban Engagement

When I first met with Shelby I could tell we had very similar struggles finding the right vendors to hire for our wedding days. She and Dylan looked at tons of photographers but none were quite the right fit. I’m glad they found me because they are the exact type of couple I aim to represent.

There’s this overarching vision of weddings that the world tries to sell you; one of romance and white dresses. What about the rest of us? The long term partners, the parents, the rebels, the anti-brides, the enthusiastically non-traditional, and everyone else in between? These two didn’t seem to buy into the bs which super resonated with me. Long term partners and parents, these two spoke about their wedding in less serious terms. Obviously planning a beautiful day is a top priority, but they seemed to have a realistic vision and good senses of humor - two things anyone planning a wedding needs.

For their engagement shoot we decided on downtown Kansas City. They had originally wanted to get married downtown but opted for a more ideal space outside of the city, so it seemed only natural to shoot here first. I wanted to find spaces downtown that brought modern industry forward in an area predominately designed in the late 19th century. Spaces where glass stairwells and parking garages are interspersed between ornate 19th century doorways, fountains, and storefronts. Much like their approach to their own wedding, these spaces show the progress and adaptations made to old methods and traditions, yet still embrace their beauty and importance. It was one of my favorite engagement shoots of the summer.

Inspiration | Boho Vibes and 70s Nostalgia

I’d been dreaming of this shoot for over a year. Right after I shot my first styled shoot at Jansen Place I started a mood board for this shoot. Inspired by my mother, I wanted to create a wedding that embraced her style, personality, and era of her youth. So naturally a whimsical, boho 1970s themed elopement was my choice. A year later, its finally finished and I couldn’t be more pleased.

It was an odd process bringing this shoot to life. I knew I wanted a Donna’s Dress Shop gown for starters. I found my own vintage reception dress there as a bride and loved the nostalgic, romantic feel of their wedding collection. I met Thor a few months later and knew immediately he would be the perfect groom for this shoot. For a long time I walked around with only those two details in my head. One particular problem was location. I couldn’t picture it. I knew what is wasn’t, but not exactly what it was. The day I walked into John’s Greenhouse I knew I’d found my venue. Still I stalled on beginning the process. It wasn’t until Katelynn Treolo approached me about collaborating a few weeks later that I started coordinating this shoot for real.

After settling on the greenhouse, everything else fell quickly into place. Erin was an obvious choice for the bride, although having never modeled before, her look and easy going attitude were absolutely perfect for what I had envisioned. Luckily for me, she agreed to take part! Professional creatives & friends I’d known for years stepped forward to provide jewelry, stationary, and hair design. I found the perfect macrame backdrop after checking with damn near every rental company in town. It barely fit in the space, but complimented the shoot so well. Lastly, I managed to get my favorite local cake baker and florist to take part. About a week before the shoot I realized I hadn’t contacted anyone about providing dinnerware. I thought on it and grabbed my grandparent’s blue floral china for a crowning personal touch; a set of dishes I knew my mother cherished as well.

I didn’t give a whole lot of direction design wise. I had a vague mood board filled with random images that conveyed more of a feeling, rather something specific. I choose my vendors based on their style and consistency in their field. I trusted them, and they trusted me. The over collaboration, and comradery of the group the day of the shoot was beautiful. (Seriously though. Hire these people! ) I cannot thank them enough for their time and talent.

Wedding | A Classic & Elegant Loose Mansion Wedding

I had to convince myself not to title this post “The Elegance of Light” because while that definitely defines my approach to this wedding day, it sounds like poorly written art theory and not nearly as SEO friendly as what’s above. Since their engagement session how I capture Danthea and Michael has not really been about their interactions at all, as they require very little posing. Most of what I do is watch how the light plays across their figures. Open to the more fleeting and experimental images I capture, I chased light throughout every aspect of their wedding day making it incredibly fun to shoot.

There was a timelessness to this wedding that I still can’t quite pin point, an overall elegance that is both classic and modern. If there was a single object that defined the air of Danthea and Michael’s wedding day it would be Danthea’s veil. Simple, cathedral length, slightly tapered, and held in place by a hair-comb of silk flowers and pearls, it’s organic movement framed this couple’s natural elegance perfectly.
