Happy Spring! A couple of weekends ago I was happy to photograph a wedding for a lovely couple on their gorgeous property in Alma, Kansas. This Kansas State University wedding was setup outdoors with some hay bale seating for ceremony guests, a large tent for the reception, and, of course, touches of purple & white throughout as the decor.
The happy couple share a home with their three dogs that were entertaining in their own ways throughout the day! It is so funny how the personality of an animal can come through in such a short time - there was the wild girl who just wanted to be outside in the creek running through the property chasing bugs (who luckily did NOT get muddy paws on the Bride's dress, though the same couldn't be said for the living room! LOL), the guard dog who could have used a Xanax that day since the guests did not clear their arrival with her beforehand, and then the little shy gal that just quietly looked around and hoped people didn't show her too much attention. So anyway, enough about dogs I suppose...
The day was full of laughter, some chaos, and a large group of family and friends enjoying each other's company and ready to celebrate the couple. The quick ceremony was followed by dinner (catering and bartending provided by Friendship House) a few speeches, the cutting of the cake, the couple's first dance, parent dances, and then the guests enjoyed the outdoors including a bonfire, and games of horseshoes and cornhole. The Bride's sister was unable to attend the wedding due to being deployed. I know she was missed (as shown in the photo below!), and thank you to her sister (also named Stacey!) for her service. The day was a definite success, and it was a fun time!
The couple and I snuck away during the reception to take some photos on their awesome property that includes multiple acres of trees, grasses, a large creek, firepit, etc! If I was a dog (or a human!), I would be happy to live there too!
Thanks so much to Jenn & Bill for allowing me to share in your day! You are a wonderful couple and it was a pleasure working with you and your family & friends. May your life together be blessed, and your love grow stronger with each passing year! Head on over to their online gallery on the SZP website to view their wedding day!
