Megan and Kent's wedding day was on Saturday June 30th in Seneca, Kansas. I had such a fun time getting to take pictures of them for a few hours on their wedding day. Megan and Kent both grew up in Seneca and have been dating for awhile, so it was fun to be apart of them taking the next journey as husband and wife.
Megan and Kent didn't want too see each other before the ceremony, so we got some pictures of Megan with her bridesmaids and Kent with his groomsmen before the ceremony started. There were chances of rain, but you wouldn't have guessed it when we were taking pictures because the sun was shining brightly.
During the ceremony however it started to rain and kept sprinkling a little bit afterwards as well, so we took wedding party pictures and family pictures inside so we wouldn't get wet!
Luckily, it wasn't raining for long, as the reception was in Kent's parents backyard! After the rain cleared it was a beautiful evening for family and friends to hang out and enjoy the evening. Willie the Wildcat even made an appearance at the reception!
Megan and Kent--Thank You so much for contacting me and asking me and trusting me to take your wedding photos! I had a blast taking them! Thank you for your positive attitudes and fun energy! You guys were such fun people to be around and you are surrounded by people that care for you guys very much! I wish you guys the best of luck as you guys embark on this new chapter as husband and wife! :)
Claire and Josh's wedding day was absolutely BEAUTIFUL, from the little details to the big details it was such a privilege to be apart of their big day! I have known Claire since elementary school and we have gotten to play sports together through-out jr. high, high school and even into college intramural teams; so I was super honored to get to photography her wedding day!
The day started off in our hometown Bern, Kansas at our good friend Laura's house where Laura's mom, Heidi did Claire's hair and fingernails. I arrived just as Claire's hair was getting underway. After hair was done we went back to Claire's house where the rest of the bridesmaids were getting ready and Claire got her make-up done by one of her good friends/bridesmaid Katy. There were sweet moments of watching Claire and her bridesmaids get ready and hangout together. After they were ready we headed to Northridge Church in Sabetha, KS where the ceremony was going to take place.
At Claire and Josh's first look, Josh's reaction was to sweetly embrace and kiss his bride-to-be with a big smile on his face! Then they took a few moments for themselves to take it all in--they were getting married in a few short hours! :)
After their first look we took some pictures of just the two of them. It was a little windy by the church and so we got in the car and drive a little ways to a spot not so windy and I'm so glad we did because we got some great pictures!
Their ceremony wasn't just about the two of them getting married, but it was about bringing praise and honor to the One who brought them together and 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, we headed to the Bern Community Building where the reception was going to be held. Claire and Josh got to greet guests as they exited the church and headed to their cars to Bern where they could catch up more later enjoy the reception with friends and family.
Their reception was beautiful! Gold and black themed with greenery and white tulips and a chocolate at each plate made it quite the affair. There was pasta for dinner which was so good and lots of friends and family gathered around to celebrate the new Mr. and Mrs. Wertenberger!
Claire and Josh--Thank You for trusting me to capture your wedding day! I had such a fun time getting to do it! Thank you for your go with the flow attitudes and such servant hearts! 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! :)
Shelby and Grant's wedding day was on Friday, June 1st and they celebrated with quite the party! It was a fun day hanging out with them and their friends and family. I got to take their engagement pictures back in February and it was the coldest day of the year and then fast forward to their wedding and it was like the hottest day of the year so far. There was definitely quite the difference in temperatures from engagement pictures to wedding!
The day started off in Herington, KS at Hair Impressions where I met Shelby as she was getting her hair done. I arrived just as things were getting underway. Afterwards, we headed to the church so Shelby could get dressed and get ready for her first look with Grant happening shortly.
At Shelby and Grant's first look, Grant's face lite up with a BIG smile on his face when he turned around and saw his bride to be and then they went into each others arms for a big hug. It was such a sweet moment! :)
Right after their first look we stayed outside to take some pictures of just the bride and groom. We tried to stay in the shade as much as possible since it was so warm. They handled the heat extremely well though, even if we had to have a couple of breaks to wipe the sweat off of their faces.
Their ceremony was indoors at St. John Catholic Church. It was a beautiful ceremony as they were surrounded by so many friends and family who wanted to celebrate their big day!
After the wedding, Shelby and Grant exited from the church while guests blew bubbles at them as they made their way to their ride, which was a bright red antique GMC pick-up that had hay bales on the back for Shelby and Grant and their wedding party to ride in. It was such a fun ride!
Shelby and Grant--Thank You so much for trusting me to capture your wedding day and engagement pictures! I had a blast taking both of them! Thank you for your fun attitudes and energy! You guys are such fun people to be around and you have lots of people that care for you guys very much! I wish you guys the best of luck as you guys embark on this new chapter as husband and wife! :)
Hollie and Edwin's wedding day was on Friday May 18th in Lawerence, Kansas. I had a fun time getting to take pictures of them for a few hours. Hollie and Edwin had been at another wedding that I had photographed the summer before and after the wedding I got an email from Hollie saying she really liked the pictures I took and asked if I'd come and photograph their wedding day for a few hours. I was delighted to come and be apart of their wedding day for a few hours.
At Hollie and Edwin's first look, Edwin was nervous, but super excited to see his bride-to-be. His face lite up with a huge smile on his face when he turned around and saw his soon-to-be wife.
After their first look we ventured further outside and tried to find some shade as the sun was shining pretty brightly so it was a little warm. Hollie and Edwin handled the heat like champs.
Their ceremony was at Corpus Christi Catholic in Lawerence. It was a beautiful ceremony as they were surrounded by loved ones.
Hollie and Edwin--Thank You so much for contacting me and asking me and trusting me to take your wedding photos! I had a blast taking them! Thank you for your positive attitudes and fun energy! You guys were such fun people to be around and you are surrounded by people that care for you guys very much! I wish you guys the best of luck as you guys embark on this new chapter as husband and wife! :)
On Natalie and Louis' wedding day the sun didn't shine and it rained for most of the day, but that wasn't going to stop them from celebrating their special day! It was a fun day hanging out with them and their friends and family, even if we did get a little wet! :) Their wedding ceremony was at St. Isidore's and there reception followed shortly after at the Legion here in town.
The day started off in Manhattan at The Hampton Inn where her and her bridesmaids were going to be getting their hair and make-up done. I arrived just as things were getting underway. The morning was spent getting all ready to go for the wedding which would happen in a few hours.
At Natalie and Louis' first look, Louis had a big grin on his face has he turned around to see his bride-to-be. They shared a sweet embrace after that and then Natalie took a step back so Louis could take another look at this bride.
After their first look we ventured outside, but not to far since it was raining. Luckily the church had a nice little awning for Natalie and Louis to stand under so they could stay dry, while I ventured out into the rain and got some pictures. It wasn't raining too hard, so don't feel too sorry for me! :) It was a pretty nice day weather wise besides the fact that it was raining/misting for most of the day.
After the wedding, Natalie, Louis and I went to the Kansas State Gardens to get some more pictures. It was still lightly raining/misting at this point, but we were determined to get some great pictures and that we did! I have had a clear umbrella that I have been waiting use for over a year now and I was excited that I was finally going to be able to use it! Every other wedding I'd had that said it was going to rain; it never ended up raining. I had a good time exploring the gardens with them and getting to take a few pictures with the umbrella as well!
After pictures we headed to their reception where their friends and family were waiting for them to arrive. Their reception was a fun affair. Around sunset, I stole Natalie and Louis away for a little bit, as it had stopped raining at this point, to get a few sunset pictures. There wasn't much for a sunset that evening, but we made it work and got some good pictures.
Natalie and Louis--Thank You for trusting me to capture your wedding day and engagement pictures! I had fun getting to know you and being able to take photos for you guys! Thank you for your go with the flow attitudes even if it wasn't ideal to have it raining almost the entire day on your wedding! You guys are such fun people to be around and you have lots of people that care for you guys very much! I wish you guys the best of luck as you guys embark on this new chapter as husband and wife! :)
