night portrait of bride and groom

Shelby & Ryan {Kansas Backyard Wedding Photography}

There was not a moment in this entire wedding day that I did not see my beautiful bride, Shelby, laughing.  The kind of toss your head back and let it all out laughter that it is impossible not to join in with.  And then you add her wonderfully sweet groom, Ryan, and his subtle sense of humor, and everyone spent the day full of joy.  Their gorgeous Kansas wedding day took place at the home of Ryan’s parents.  This outdoor tented wedding was full of sweet details that reflected Shelby’s love of Florida State and Ryan’s love of KU.  We had a blast the entire day but my favorite was when we managed to fit Shelby’s ballgown style wedding dress into the bounce house for a little fun moment. Enjoy!

From our bride, Shelby:

Favorite Moment of the Day:Do I really have to pick one? I loved taking pictures before the wedding and getting able to spend time with our bridal party on the bus. It reminded us how the wedding was meant to be a fun, celebration.
Inspiration for the wedding:We knew we wanted a fall wedding so we picked Florida State colors and then tried to have Kansas items throughout as well.
Advice to brides planning in the future:Spend the money on a good photographer and videographer because the actual wedding and reception fly by. Ryan and I woke up the next morning and could not believe it was all already over and we realized we did not get to see as much as we wanted… 
Thanks to Noelle Bielak for second shooting this amazing day with me.
