Congratulations to Cara & Simon! Since your engagement session last fall, I have been excited to capture Cara’s gorgeous eyes that always have the happiest twinkle and her infectious smile paired with Simon’s sweetness. It’s a perfect match for photography and after the time we have spent together, I can know they will have a very happy marriage. The preparations started at Hyatt Hotel in Overland Park where the guys primped the only way guys know how and the girls had fun with hair, makeup, and putting on the bridal gown. We prepared the first look for a very excited bride and groom and then went just outside the hotel and did a quick photography session before heading to the church.
The ceremony was at St. Thomas Moore in Missouri and was simply lovely. After the bridal party loaded the party bus, we went to the Fountains on Ward Parkway (for a piece of KC without having to drive too far!) and to Loose Park. The trees were in bloom, the tulips were out, and everyone was in a festive mood. The reception was at Blue Hills Country Club and was decorated beautifully by loving family members. I was touched by the father-daughter dance when they invited all the fathers and daughters out onto the dance floor to share their special time. Every wedding I tear up, and this was no exception. The party was in full force when it was time for my second photographer and I to leave, but I think we managed to capture the dancing and fun.
