A KSU Willie the Wildcat Wedding Surprise!
I am SO lucky to have been the photographer at this particular wedding. It was one of the most emotional, sentimental ceremonies I have had the pleasure of photographing. The Bride, a Kansas State University alumni and the Groom were so smitten with one another. This was a second wedding for both of them. The Groom had a crush on the Bride in High School but never told her. They grew up, went their separate ways, and crossed paths again decades later.
The Bride & Groom did not see one another prior to the ceremony and the look on the Groom's face when he saw her was perfect! The Bride's mother conducted the ceremony beautifully, and the music was provided by friends and family of the couple, including a violinist, pianist, and two lovely singers. Vows were exchanged not only between the Bride & Groom, but also the Groom's two wonderful children and the Bride. You could see the love and respect in the eyes of the Bride & the children as they promised to be a family, and of course a happy husband and father to know that the bond between all of them was so strong. It was a tear-jerker for sure, and such an awesome moment to capture on camera.
The entire day took place at the gorgeous Bluemont Hotel in Manhattan, Kansas. It was quite chilly outside so everyone spent the day indoors enjoying good company. The women got ready in the beautiful King Suite and the gentlemen were in another room. The wedding and reception both took place on the event floor, and the wedding color was KSU purple. The guests enjoyed mini cupcakes from the yummy & talented 4Cakes Bakery in Manhattan. The reception was a ton of fun; everyone was dancing and laughing and having a wonderful time. To top it off, the Groom surprised the Bride with special guest, Kansas State University mascot Willie the Wildcat. It was SO much fun and I absolutely LOVE the progression of photos from that moment. I hope you enjoy looking through these as much as I did taking them!
