Kansas City Wedding Photography – Loose Mansion

WAIT!

Before you look at photos, I have to tell you about Brittany and Gordi.

I always attend a local bridal fair as I feel it’s important to support this small local fair and keep my name out there.  Sometimes I meet someone special, and sometimes I don’t, but I feel I should be there regardless of the outcome.  Well on this day Brittany and Gordi came to my table and I was instantly in love with their energy.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen Gordi not smiling, and Brittany just lights up then entire room.  I knew I wanted to be around them and I felt a great connection.  Here’s the catch…. they weren’t engaged yet!  I turned to Gordi and I said “do we need to have a talk?” and he laughed.  We parted ways and I made a mental note that I really wanted to shoot this wedding.  I’m sure the truth was that he already had it all planned out because a couple months later in my office door walks Brittany and Gordi.  I was just so excited to see them!

They were my first wedding of 2015 and one of the prettiest I’ve seen yet.  It was at Loose Mansion in Kansas City which is incredibly gorgeous (you’ll see in the photos).  The wedding, cocktail hour and reception all in the same place.  I learned so much about them that day that I feel like they’re old friends now.  Both love each other nearly as much as they love Christ.  They call Gordi “Pastor Gordi” and I’m hoping someday to get to hear him preach at church (I think they had to pressure him a bit to do so.)  Brittany’s little sister is as beautiful as Brittany herself and photographing them both was just a dream.  Gordi’s brothers were so much fun and I felt a little like family by the end of the night.  Gordi is a crazy good dancer and Brittany does a fine job of keeping up with him.  There’s a little surprise action at the reception around the bouquet toss and I think both myself and the “toss-ee” were OMGing at the same moment!

I didn’t want to go home at the end of the night.  I don’t say that often after a long day, but these guys made the day fly by.  I hope you enjoy their photos as much as I enjoyed being there with them!  If you need any wedding photography, please give me an email or a call.

Bailey and Jordan’s Bedford Iowa Rural Peacock purple and teal wedding

Bailey and Jordan’s wedding story for *me* starts a long time ago.  In fact, it started long before Bailey was even born.  (man I feel old now).  I knew Bailey’s mom and dad when they were just spry little pups.  Bailey’s dad and I were in the same class and her mother just a couple years behind. I grew up with her dad and my class was small enough that my classmates don’t feel like classmates, they’ve always felt more like cousins to me.  Every reunion isn’t a class reunion, it’s a family reunion.

After graduation we went our separate ways but a few years ago, we all reconnected again on facebook.  That’s when I began to learn more about Bailey, her brother and sister and her boyfriend Jordan.  Jordan is probably the only man on this planet that could possibly keep up with Bailey’s funny, high spirited antics.  They are ying and yang, and also Laurel and Hardy.  He smiles all the time and looks at Bailey with so much love. (and patience.  lol).

I think of all the kids (and I’ve photographed all of them on different occasions), that I probably most relate to Bailey.  We are both middle children so we both have the “look at meeeeee!!” way of reacting to the world around us.  That makes us awesome in most circles just for the record.

Please enjoy their photos, but have a tissue handy because Bailey is a crier. 😉

If you have an upcoming wedding, please feel free to contact me to help you out with your photography needs!

These photos are amazing. This is one wedding I will never forget. I cried watching it take place and I cried re-living it here in your pictures. Your photos are always graceful and beautiful so when you have such gorgeous models to photograph, it makes them over the top. Thank you!

This was one of the neatest weddings we have ever attended. I love seeing the pictures once again. Yes, I am tearing up. This couple is very special. As Jordan leaves to serve our country, I only wish the very best for him. Bailey is a strong little gal. She will be finishing her education while he is gone. BEST WISHES to both of them. Thank you Lana, for sharing these BEAUTIFUL wedding memories. YOU ROCK.
