I’m sure that waking up on your wedding day to a gloomy overcast sky is a total bummer for just about every bride (I should know, my wedding day was totally rained out). For a photographer, however, its a huge blessing. Those big puffy clouds are the perfect natural diffuser and the light outside is soft and even. Instead of running for the shade as we usually do, we can shoot anywhere with lovely lighting and amazing color. Katrina and Jay’s amazing wedding took place at the historic and gorgeous Belvoir Winery in Liberty, Missouri.
The Belvoir Winery used to be the Odd Fellows Home District, a series of homes and buildings dedicated to the care of orphans and the elderly. They even host paranormal tours where you can tour the crumbling out buildings in hopes of a scare or two (which from stories I’ve heard is actually very likely). The winery itself hosts wine tastings with some amazing selections, like the Casanova and the Chardonel.
Katrina and Jay are such a beautiful and sweet couple. Katrina runs her own salon, Salon Blush, in Overland Park and Jay is a pilot for a private charter company out of Hanger 10 downtown. I loved how Katrina pulled so many personal details into the wedding. The airplane mints were adorable and I couldn’t help myself around the cookie bar with favorite recipes from some of their favorite people. The incorporation of burlap, wine corks, and simple vintage details fit the history and class of the Belvoir Winery grounds perfectly. I love how despite an exceptionally chilly day, friends and family came out in droves to show their love and support for a beautiful couple starting out in their new life together. Enjoy this lovely Belvoir Winery wedding!
