For me, Jane and John’s wedding day was full of firsts. Their wedding ceremony at the Memorial Chapel on the Fort Leavenworth Army Base gave me the opportunity to be on base for the first time. Due to some slight glitches in the plan and quick thinking on the part of our amazing wedding planner, Christine, it was the first time I have ever photographed a completely private first dance. Jane and John were set to have their dance at Californio’s before their grand entrance, but instead got to share that special moment at the top of Penn Valley Park dancing with the Kansas City skyline and the setting sun behind them. It was they first time I’ve seen someone open a bottle of champagne with a saber (and narrowly avoided getting hit by the cork). In the end the day turned out perfect and I am so excited to see what firsts Jane and John get to experience in their life together. Enjoy!
A huge thank you to my second photography, Kyle Lackey.
