Stacy & Garrett tied the knot in early October and I couldn’t be happier for them. I love the way Stacy’s eyes crinkle when she smiles big at her groom and the way his expression softens at her touch. Wishing them both a sky-full of happiness. The couple got ready at the Courtyard Marriott on the Country Club Plaza with a great view of the Kansas City royal blue fountain (which also matched their wedding day colors!) Not a bad way for these two Kansas City sports fans to remember their wedding day.
The first look took place outside of their hotel. Stacy’s maid of honor helped Garrett down those stairs with his eyes closed (talk about trust…) and waited in suspense to see his very excited bride.
Then we headed to the Nelson Art Museum for some bridal party portraits and photography of the about to married couple. The Nelson is always a great spot for photography in this city because it has so many spots in one stop. Oh, man are they sweet. I love her long veil…and the wind was happy to help us out a bit too. The ceremony was beautiful and they were fortunate enough to have Stacey’s uncle be the officiant. There was a short coctail hour where most of the guests were enjoying the Royals game and the great food and bevarages. And then a great grand entrance that started a fun party for the rest of the night. The first dance and husband and wife is always a special moment, as is the father-daughter dance and mother-son dance. Their wedding dances were no exception. The guys in the bridal party thought it would be perfect to serenade Stacy’s mom to the song “Stacy’s mom”. So very funny. And they guys lost the dollar dance competition, so they had to do the YMCA up on stage.
And for the final image….presenting “The Wedding Starring Garrett & Stacy”.
I am so happy for you both! It has been so much fun photographing your special moments on both your engagement session and wedding day.
