Wedding | An Architectural & Artistic Elopement for KC Creatives

This keeps sitting in my queue because I can’t seem to find the words to best describe Cydney and Daniel’s courthouse elopement. Their elopement took place at Jackson County Courthouse on a Monday afternoon on their seven year anniversary. (I think?) They surrounded themselves with close friends, family, former professors, and a really awesome crepe cake. All I can say is that it was utterly, authentically “them “ which feels fairly contrived to put it as such.

I’ve only been friends with these two for a short time, but have know of Cydney for a several years. I’m not really sure when our paths first crossed, but we attended the same college and the same business seminar post grad. I photographed their sweet cat family back in December and have collaborated with Cydney (who is a kick ass porcelain artist) several times since. I still don’t know Daniel very well, but I’m sure he’s as kind and creative as his counterpart. They seem to be the type of couple that I could easily just grab a drink with. Super laid back and fun to talk to. Michael and I were even invited to their pre-wedding party. Unfortunately, Michael has a distinct fear of Funkytown so that didn’t quite work out.

All aside, I was so happy they allowed me to be a part of their day! Since courthouse weddings are no longer a thing in Jackson County I never thought I’d be able to shoot inside. You have to have an “in” to get married in the building. Cydney’s father being a lawyer allowed them to find a judge, and in turn, all the gorgeous marble was mine to capture. Muahaha! Seriously, they couldn’t have picked more beautiful locations. First the ceremony inside the courthouse and a short reception followed at a near perfectly lit art gallery. This was dream elopement status for me; these are my people.

Wedding | An Elegant Vintage Wedding at Armour Loft

Toni and Adam’s elegant vintage inspired, late evening wedding was my last big wedding of 2018. Illuminated predominately by string lights and candelabras, and adorned with greenery, the aura of the space felt very old world glamour with a few modern twists; a cake covered with icing succulents, glowing Chinese lanterns, stark white backdrops, and a great reception playlist. The couple had taken me to tour the space prior to the wedding, and I can definitely attest to the fact that their decor truly brought the venue to life- it didn’t even feel like the same place by the time I saw it on their wedding day. One of my favorite touches was a mantel clock placed at the center of the head table; only a close second to the marquee which was so unbelievable fun to shoot beneath. The night was concluded with the most beautiful sparkler exit I’ve ever captured. They truly made my 2018 wedding season go out with a bang.

Wedding | Late Summer Celebration at Rustic, Winery + Vinyard

Emily & Aaron’s wedding couldn’t have been on a more beautiful day. Held at the brand new, and utterly gorgeous Bourgmont Vineyard and Winery, this wedding was elegant, moving, and playful.

Created from a converted horse stable, Bourgmont Vineyard’s rustic reception hall was filled with the most beautiful light throughout the entire day. It was a true photographer’s dream space. I was also able to take a few bride and groom portraits in the huge neighboring guest house, which included a ginormous living room picture window overlooking the Kansas hills, a beautiful staircase overlook, and moody library for some serious Wes Anderson vibes. The couple embraced their wine-centric surroundings and created their center pieces and cake stand from recycled wine bottles. They also incorporated their love of sports into the day, with a volley ball shaped wedding cake and a short game of one on one after the ceremony. Because naturally this place would also have a basket ball court.

This wedding was one of the more moving weddings I’ve attended. I’m not a crier, or one to gush over romantic gestures. Call me a cynic; call me cold. It’s fine. However, Emily and Aaron’s love for each other really resonated with me in way that felt so genuine and touching. During their first dance I nearly teared up, and that’s something I didn’t even do at my own wedding.

Wedding | A Contemporary, Fine Art Wedding

Kim & Stacy's modern, fine art wedding at The Kemper Museum was gorgeous. When they booked me for this wedding I felt a particular kinship to it, mostly because for four years I studied and created across the street from it. I even dragged Kim & Stacy over the foundation and ceramics' buildings for a quick photo op.

Wedding | From Paris to the Plains

My first clue that I was really really going to enjoy this wedding was meeting Shana and Dimitri for the first time. It was the day prior to their wedding, we were walking casually around the venue and I was talking about different locations that would make for interesting images. I mentioned that within my work I valued minimalism and symmetry. Shana pipes up, "Oh minimalism and symmetry are two of Dimitri's favorite words." She told me my mentioning of those two things on my website were what really sealed the deal selection wise.

I won't lie, I was a bit surprised when these two first reached out to me. For one thing, they had somehow found me from half way across the world. (Thanks, Thumbtack.) They were living in Paris at the time, and had held their civil ceremony in France; however, with Shana's relatives dispersed across the US they chose to have their wedding in the states. Shana's 96 year old Grandmother lived in Lawrence, and so they selected the beautiful, historic Circle S Ranch and Inn for their wedding. I thought it was a little funny that two people from Paris with such simple, elegant style would choose a venue known for it's more rustic charm. We joked about them going "full Kansas," but in reality the space suited their style and needs very well. All of their guests were able to stay at the inn the entire weekend and partake in all the activities the ranch had to offer. It was a wonderful way to bring everyone together. After seeing they had selected the ever, elegant Twig Cake Company and Shana Vaughn Designs for their additional vendors it started to make a whole lot of sense. The day of everything was beautiful, quaint and cozy. 

The whole wedding day seemed to go off without a hitch. The affair was very laid back, and flowed together with ease; getting ready to first look to bridal portraits to a garden social to the ceremony to the reception. It was one of the few weddings that I probably would've stayed past my booked time to chat and dance. (Although my poor dog had been in his kennel for 8+ hours so I booked it back to KC.) There are so many other little details I could point out; Shana's locally made minimalist jewelry, our eerily similar taste in music, but you came here for the photos so I'll get on with it. 

Above all else, I think what made this day the most special was Shana and Dimitri's story itself. Having met in Paris a few months prior they decided to marry rather quickly. While I don't know their entire backstory, I do know that Shana's job was what led her to Paris and is what will relocate them to Hawaii in a mere few weeks. Dimitri and Shana met, married, and will move around the world all in the few months time. To me, that seems such a brave and genuine testament of love.
