A Vintage Inspired June Wedding.. with Kansas inspired Wind, Rain, & Sunshine (Yes, all in the same day)
Please allow me to share with you some images from this beautiful, vintage themed wedding I photographed in June of this year. The Bride is a Kansas native, and the Groom came to Kansas for business. The couple is off to another state in just a few months, so it was great to get to spend this blessed time with them before they go! I loved this wedding so much, from the vintage details to the super-fun crowd.. Fun AND Beautiful? That's my kind of event right there! ;)
The day started off gloomy/stormy with some huge wind gusts..thank you Kansas. The girls got ready at Grandma's house which was perfect for the occasion. The Bride wore a gorgeous, strapless, form-fitting lace gown and the bridesmaids were dressed in a pale yellow. Their flowers also had the vintage/country look as they were yellow and white dried flower bouquets..simple, beautiful, and elegant.
Once the ceremony, at the old St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Flush, KS, was completed, the wind was still making itself known to all of us. We were able to squeeze in some Bride & Groom photos tucked away in an outside corner of the church, and a few bridal party photos amidst the sun blaring between wind gusts, then headed over to the Four Points , Sheraton Hotel in Manhattan for the reception.
The reception was complete with a cake stand adorned with the Bride's Great-Grandmother's pin, a top-layer wedding cake for the couple to cut, and lots and lots of cupcakes on the bottom two tiers as well as in, on, and around an old crate with flowers and other details. The reception also displayed a nicely decorated guestbook table, some vintage coaster sets made personally by the bride & groom (including chalkboard ones that the guests could write on right there!), burlap and lace details, old books with flowers and candles on each table, and Mad-lib (remember those?!?) type cards at each table for the guests to fill out. It really was beautifully done and everyone had a blast. Most of the guests participated in the dancing, including a female circle around the groom while they took turns dancing around him in the middle; even Moms and Grandmas participated in this! I know I have already said this.. but it was fun!
The Bride & Groom and I snuck out around sunset to go take some couple photos at a location nearby; the wind had died down around this time as well..yay! The view was truly Kansas-mazing (I just made that word up RIGHT now).. there was a colorful sunset to the West and dark blue/gray storm clouds rolling through on the East. All I had to do was change directions and it was like I was in a completely different place! Once we were done we returned to the party for a few more photos of the guests and then the night for me was done. I hope you enjoy reliving part of their day in the photos to follow!
