Allison and Todd had an intimate courthouse wedding with their closest friends and family. They had their wedding day at Johnson County Courthouse before celebrating later that night. They also had their beautiful daughter with them to celebrate, which was so sweet!! She was wearing a little white dress to match her Mama 🙂

Allison’s bridal party wore blush pink dresses and held small bouquets! Todd’s men wore darker suits than his light gray, which made for such a cool contrast look! We grabbed family photos right outside the Johnson County Courthouse before heading to Lake Olathe for some portraits of the two of them.

I loved this day and the intimacy of it! Courthouse wedding days should never go over looked because of how special and intimate they are. Thank you Allison & Todd for having me along on this amazing day! You are surrounded by some of the best family & friends and I felt lucky to be apart of it all!

Bailey and Chris had a beautiful spring Wedding at Powell Gardens! Their wedding day was emotional and FULL of love. They had their closest friends and family at their side, ready to celebrate. You could tell that their families had been waiting for this day for them.

My favorite details of the day were all of the color that they had! Colorful florals and mixmatched bridesmaids are going to be a huge trend for the rest of 2022 and 2023 weddings.

Powell Gardens is has a modern church with insane windows and tall ceilings that feel never ending. It’s truly a magical place to just stand and soak in all the thoughtful design put into the venue.

Thank you so much Bailey and Chris for letting me celebrate this gorgeous day with you!

Even if you just elope you still deserve photos of you and your partner at this stage of life. Dress it up or keep it casual- do something that feels like YOU. Maica and Alfred did just that! They wanted spring wedding portraits the day after eloping!

We went to Spring Loose Park for their session and adventure around to everything it has to offer, which is A LOT! The gardens there are beautiful even when flowers aren’t blooming! Luckily for us though, they were! The park also had a pond we adventured around that was pretty central to the park.

Maica and Alfred had a super small, family-only ceremony and then the next day wanted couples photos to celebrate. Maica wore an adorable dress that was from Lulus. They both were so much fun, they were singing, dancing, and giggling throughout their entire session. Most of the time I’m not with my couples the day after they get married, but with Maica and Alfred, I’m so glad I was! This was the best day for Spring Wedding Portraits!

Thank you Maica and Alfred for being the best company!

Kirsten and Ryan’s wedding day with just their family and a few friends was in the beautiful Overland Park Arboretum. And it was such a stunning wedding venue. Highly recommend it to my Kansas City Brides!

Following their wedding they had an intimate dinner at Wandering Vine at the Castle. They road in a vintage getaway car they borrowed from their dad to the reception dinner! How cool is it to have all those special details on the day? This wedding was full of them and I am always a fan of that.

We made sure to make time for a first look separate from their ceremony to have a few moments to themselves too. You’ll see lots of private, meaningful moments in this day and it was so sweet to capture those moments for these two.

Kristen also has great taste in florals and her dream bouquet came to life that day. Make sure you scroll down to see it!! It was full of happy color which is so fitting for them! They are two of the most genuine people ever and deserved this day to be perfect. I was so honored to see all these special memories being made.

I loved being able to share my wedding experience with them for their Overland Park Arboretum wedding day on the blog. Kristen and Ryan, I wish you both the best life together! Thank you for letting me share this day with you!
