Shawna and Andy's wedding day was absolutely BEAUTIFUL, from the little details to the big details it was such a privilege to be apart of it.
The day started off in Overland Park at Shawna's parents house where Shawna and her bridesmaids were getting their hair and make-up done. I arrived just as the hair was getting underway and breakfast was getting set out. It was a sweet time getting to watch them hangout and interact as friends.
At Shawna and Andy's first look, Andy's reaction was to sweetly embrace and kiss his bride-to-be with a big smile on his face! Then they took a few minutes for themselves to take it all in--they were getting married in a few short hours!
After their first look we ventured outside even though the weather was in the low 30s even though spring had technically begun two and a half weeks ago--it sure didn't feel like spring! It was a little chilly, but they ROCKED it!
Their ceremony was a great example of how we are supposed to live a life for Christ and spread his love wherever we go. Their wedding day wasn't just about them getting married, but it was about giving glory to the One who created them, the One who is love and what a great way to start a marriage.
After the two were pronounced one, their guests headed to St. Andrew's Golf Club as Mr. and Mrs. Cole took a few more pictures inside, this time around as it was still pretty chilly outside before they headed out to enjoy their reception with their friends and family.
Their reception was beautiful! Each table had their own decorated cake that you picked where you wanted to sit by what flavor of cake you wanted or you'd have to make some friends and see if they would share. During the reception it did warm up into the mid forties and so right before Andy and Shawna were going to be sent off we snuck outside and took a few more portraits; which I'm so glad we did--they turned out wonderful!
Shawna and Andy--Thank You for trusting me to capture your wedding day and engagement pictures! I had a blast taking both of them! Thank you for your go with the flow attitudes when I'm pretty sure you didn't think it was going to be a high of 45 on your wedding day in April! You guys are such fun people to be around and I am excited to see what big things God does in your life! Best of luck as you guys embark on this new chapter as husband and wife! :)
