Amanda & David | Fulton Valley Farms Wedding | Towanda, KS

Every great romance starts with some delicious anecdote, and in Amanda and David's case, theirs took the form of corndogs at the state fair. Their first date happened at the greatest state's fair (Kansas, duh), and their first picture included them chewing on a couple corndogs. What started as an unassuming, unofficial date, quickly became something so much more. In no time at all, they realized that they'd found the person, their for-life person, that they'd been waiting on for years.

Amanda and David's wedding was all reminiscing and celebration as their friends and family shared their journeys of waiting for the right person and their eventual moments of realization when they knew this was the real deal. Their love story was about the rewards for patience. It made waiting for the right person seem more wonderful than tedious and entirely worthwhile.

Their day seemed appropriately happy, from the way they recreated their first photo in front of the Pronto Pup truck (corndogs in hand), to the groomsmen with cheeseburger socks, the bride Amanda with cheeseburger and fries socks, and (naturally) to their donut wall in place of a cake (complete with donut glasses). Their day was quirky, perky, and all around wonderful, and it left me with a huge smile on my face.

Katie & Heber | Clarion Inn Wedding Garden City Kansas

With the incredibly cold string of below freezing days in Kansas, Katie and Heber's wedding was anything but that. Their day brought so much warmth through love, laughter, and some pretty killer dance moves.

Knowing each other since grade school and not dating until college, Katie and Heber have a seasoned love that feels shiny and new. They look at each other with deeply familiar expressions, yet they still have the power to cripple the other with just eough tickle.  They laughed and cried throughout the whole day, fully experiencing every moment as it happened.

From watching these two love one another and love everyone that came to their wedding, I'm confident they will positively make an impact on whoever comes into their lives. 

To end the year on the Eve of New Year's Eve with Katie & Heber was the *best* way to end the year. They showed me the importance of smiling, not taking things too seriously, but also treating big things (like marriage!) with reverance.

Maris & Justin | A Bellwether Barn & Lake Scott State Park Wedding | Scott City, KS

Kansas summers are typically hot and miserable, but Maris & Justin's day was sprinkled (pun intended!!) with delightful weather! Everything seemed to go perfectly, as though it was a precious little gift for the two of them! Even as lightning and thunder went off during the wedding party photos, we all stayed happily dry. It was a wedding miracle if I've ever seen one! Come the evening, a cool and breezy 73 degrees kept everyone shockingly cozy for a July wedding. 

Coupled with the great weather, the Scott City area proved a beautiful place to say "I do.", and it was a kind departure from the typical flat Kansas scenery. From getting ready out at gorgeous Lake Scott State Park surrounded by natural bluffs, where there were bridesmaids, father/brother, and bride/groom first looks, to their ceremony at their family's new venue the Bellwether Barn, things were more than a little pleasing to the eye.

To make things even better, Maris & Justin were a happy couple of people to spend a day with. From their patience and ease with every moment of the day (thunderstorms schmunderstorms) to their big smiles and belly laughs, they were wonderfully kind-hearted and easy-going. It's clear that these two care not just about each other, but they care deeply about their family and their friends, who clearly love them in return! In fact, the entire wedding was a family affair.

From the mother of the groom sewing all the bridesmaids' dresses, to family cooking fresh donuts throughout the whole evening, and the bride's family building their venue (crazy, right?!), their wedding had an almost "Fiddler on the Roof" feel with the way that everyone seemed to pitch in and make their day amazing. 

With beauty, kindness, and love, and I'm happy to share Maris & Justin's sweet wedding day moments from Scott City, KS. Enjoy!
