Where to start with this gorgeous day?? First of all the the weather for an outdoor, late-June wedding could’ve been miserable, but it ended up being perfect. The venue was absolutely gorgeous…I had never shot here before and was so excited to. The barn, the cottage, the wildflowers, and the idyllic Kansas views made it the most perfect spot for Megan and Jonathan to seal their love.
I have known Megan for a few years and have photographed her family several different times. That made the day even better, because we were all old friends. I hadn’t met Jonathan before, and it was beautiful to see how well he loves Megan and how sweet he is with her. We started off the day getting ready in the cottage, and then had their first look in front of the barn. We’d set aside lots of time for photos, so we got right into it. The wildflowers were such an added bonus to be able to use!
It was finally time for Megan to walk down the aisle, and some of my favorite photos are ones that Adam took of the ‘behind-the-scenes’ of Megan and her dad just before their big walk. As everyone else was watching the processional, Megan’s dad was busy helping Megan with her dress to make sure every detail was perfect. When she walked down the aisle, I couldn’t help but tear up a bit as I watched her mom. I can’t imagine all the feelings and memories you experience as a mom during that moment.
After their ceremony, we took a few more photos and then joined family and friends in the barn. There were cupcakes and and ice cream bar, and outdoor games. Everyone ended up outside, enjoying the beautiful weather, and congratulating the newlyweds. We had a gorgeous sunset and snuck out a couple more times for photos and I’m obsessed with those. Big thanks to Megan’s sister Ashley for helping me get the couple away for those special photos.
Congrats to Megan and Jonathan, and thank you so much for choosing me to capture your day. It was seriously perfect. I wish you all the best!!
