Lexy & Travis {Powell Gardens and Buffalo Lodge Wedding Day}

From the moment I first answered Lexy’s initial phone call, I knew that this fireball of a bride was going to be amazing to know and work with.  Combine her energy with Travis’ chill demeanor and these two are the perfect combination for each other.  Their wedding day was a perfect mix of rustic and classic style.  Enjoy!
A huge Thank You to my second photographer Kami Van Slyke!
From our bride Lexy:
Favorite Memory of the Day: Wow. I can only choose one? I don’t know if I can do that so I will give you a few! The days leading up to the wedding were remarkable. Family was coming into town, everybody was in good spirits and there seemed to be a sense of healing in the air. Everybody came together to celebrate the love of Travis and I and we could not have felt more blessed. The wedding day itself was smooth as ever. My bridesmaids and I were having so much fun getting pampered by some of KC’s finest. My family was cooking lunch and sharing stories with each other, I was blown away by their hard work. The hours leading up were absolutely perfect, and the nerves of getting married were surprisingly tame. Father daughter first look was so emotional and perfect. And I knew as soon as though chapel doors opened, my future was going to be a fun adventurous one. During the reception, my husband sang the “Father Daughter dance” and everybody was in tears.
See? I cannot say that I have a favorite moment because there are simply too many, but I can say that one particular moment came to me as a surprise that meant the world to me.  My dad and I have been through so much, and these last few years have been especially tough. He has suffered from a TBI and his depression has taken over his life. We were worried that the wedding festivities would be too much for him to handle, but he proved us all wrong. The day of my wedding I saw my Dad smile again. It is a moment that I will cherish for the rest of my life. While I was getting ready, my dear friend Kristy asked me to come downstairs because my Dad had something for me. I was a little taken back by this, but I followed her down there where my father met us privately with our videogrpaher. As soon as he saw me, he broke down in tears. I put my arms around his neck and asked him what was wrong. He told me that he loved me very much and that he wishes my mother was here to see me today (my mother passed away when I was 3). We both hugged and cried and then he presented me with a card that he wrote for me that had a long, beautifully written letter in it. It makes me teary eyed thinking about it! And in that moment, my Dad was my Dad again. 
Inspiration for the Wedding: My personality is a combination of vintage, free-spirited, and chic. And Travis is a country boy! I meshed them all together and came up with a Rustic-Chic themed wedding with vintage undertones. 
Advice to Bride’s- Have fun planning your wedding! I had a blast planning and I gave myself plenty of time to do so. We had a year and a half long engagement. Also, when you plan your honeymoon, give yourself at least a day after your wedding to reflect with your family and have a day of rest!
