Romantic Storytelling, Fine Art Wedding Photographer

First of all, how beautiful are these two!?


Eric and Nicole decided to have a traditional first look when she walked down the aisle.  Instead, Nicole and her dad shared a few special moments right before the ceremony where both of them fought back tears as they hugged each other.

If anyone’s marriage is going to have lots of good luck, it’ll be Mr. and Mrs. Lee.  Not only did it rain on their engagement session back in April, it rained the first half of the day during the wedding too.  Perhaps it’s a sign from God that they will be refreshed and filled with new beginnings as they enter into this new chapter.

After a beautiful ceremony, the wedding party cheered on the couple as they exited the church.  Their reception took place at the brand new venue, The Abbott located in the heart of KCMO.  The modern urban loft setting met elegance with it’s stunning chandeliers, white tables and chairs and candles and fresh flowers on every table.  Gold and blush dusted the space bringing it to life.

Eric and Nicole were greeted with loud applause as they made their grand entrance.  Upbeat music led them into their first dance as husband and wife.  During toasts, the two of them couldn’t stop smiling and dabbing their eyes as their friends and family members wished them all the happiness in the world.

Eric and Nicole,
You both have such kind hearts and souls.  It is so easy to see why so many love you and support you.  Eric, you have a beautiful bride who looks into your eyes as if nothing else in this world exists.  Never stop looking into her eyes.  Nicole, your husband wants nothing more than to see you smile.  I can tell by how genuine his smile is when he sees you smile.  Never lose that joy you have in your heart.

I am so happy for you guys and am excited to share these beautiful sneak peek images from your big day! Enjoy Italy!

Yours Truly,
