Kaitlan and Cory
I got to know Kaitlan and Cory shortly after they were engaged. I had photographed her sister, and knew her mom. She was by far the most organized bride I have ever met. She had most of the wedding planned within a couple days of getting engaged. They fit each other well, Kaitlan a teacher and Cory a coach. They fit together so naturally, and enjoy sharing life and raising their two adorable pups together.
The wedding venue was at The Red Rock Acres in Holts Summit, Missouri. It was charming, rustic, and surrounded by gorgeous farmland. Though it did have an outdoor ceremony option, Kaitlan and Cory were glad they had decided to do it all inside because the weather pushed to over 100 degrees, not counting humidity.
They had the cutest setup of Crumble cookies for dessert. (If you have never had a Crumble cookie, then just imagine the most decadent cookie). However, what got me the most during the day was simply the love between the bride and groom, and the love they shared with their family. The father-daughter dance where her stoic dad was holding back tears, and then her mom joined in brought me and pretty much everyone else to tears. The speeches were heartfelt and showed the character and quality of connections they have formed as a couple. It was an honor to capture their wedding day.
