I had the honor and privilege of photographing my coworker’s wedding this past weekend. I think everyone was a bit bummed out that the rainy weather and cool temps moved the ceremony inside instead of on the lake, but everything was beautiful nonetheless. The bride was stunning in her dress, and the families were so much fun! There’s always a hiccup at a wedding – in this case, the bride couldn’t find her purse, which made her late to her own big day. The guests were laid back and took it in stride. Aside from that, it went off without a hitch. It’s obvious how in love these two are – I was lucky to be a part of their big day.
During our Thanksgiving trip to Denver last week, we went to the downtown lighting ceremony and walked around the nearby shops while admiring the Christmas lights. The Denver event is nothing like the Country Club Plaza lighting in Kansas City in terms of scale, beauty, and crowds, but I actually enjoyed the low-key evening. It was picture-perfect, don’t you think?
Saturday night we had the pleasure of attending a friend’s wedding at the historic Granada Theater. I’ve seen some awesome photos of weddings at theaters, and my husband and I actually looked at theater for our own reception venue, but this is the first time I’ve ever attended a wedding at a theater. It was great! We sat at tables for the both the wedding and the reception. No long span of time between the two, no leaving so they can change the set-up from wedding to reception, no distant drive between venues. It was a beautiful wedding and I wish the couple nothing but the best.

Last week my extended family attended Purple Light – a vigil to honor & remember loved ones who have faced pancreatic cancer. The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network hosts the event to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer and how desperately funding is needed for research to learn more about the deadly disease. Survival rates are the lowest among all cancers and haven’t improved over the last 40 years.
Saturday evening I had the privilege of photographing Miranda & Jesse’s wedding. The fall farm setting was gorgeous, and having her fathers’ and guests’ airplanes in the background was a memorable touch. This was my first wedding, and since it wasn’t nearly as nerve-racking as I thought it might be, I hope it’s not my last. Do you have a favorite image below – or suggestions for the new wedding photographer?
This photo was taken at our friend Christa’s wedding this weekend. It was a beautiful and touching ceremony, from the tears that were shed to the classy red and black colors. And most importantly; the bride and groom were both glowing all night!
