Abbie and I met at the Wichita Bridal Expo and it didn’t take long for us to feel a natural connection and friendship with each other. When I got to meet Kyle a few months later for their engagement session, it just became even more evident that this couple would be one that would hold a special place in my heart. I can truly say that every minute of working with them has been a pleasure, and I am beyond honored that they chose to have me capture their day!
The week before their wedding, we experienced heavy rain that was bound to cause some changes to their original plans. What was supposed to be a sweet ceremony by the pond, turned into a ceremony on the patio. True to Kansas-fashion, the day also included crazy winds as well. Instead of being disappointed or frustrated, Abbie and Kyle were very positive and decided to embrace the changes and the conditions without letting it get to them. The grounds were just too wet to really do anything, but thankfully we managed to get some beautiful sunset portraits at the end of the day. Kyle even joked he would sacrifice his shoes and carry Abbie if needed. The result was an absolutely gorgeous and perfect day for them to start their marriage!
There are so many things I could mention about this absolutely STUNNING day, but you’d be stuck reading forever. Instead, as you scroll through the images, hopefully you will see all of the planning and thought that went into each and every detail of their day!
The jewelry Abbie wore were heirlooms and held special meaning to her.
Abbie’s robe, the ring pillow, and Abbie’s dad’s pocket square were all made out of Abbie’s mother’s wedding dress.
This is the ring Kyle’s father proposed to his mother with.
While Kyle’s father was not there in person, he was definitely still there in spirit and honored in some of the sweetest ways throughout the day.
I definitely teared up while watching Kyle react to seeing Abbie for the first time. It’s easy to see how much these two love each other and just how much they are loved by their friends and family.
Abbie’s grandmother made all of the mints herself for the reception.

During their surprise custard bar, the bride even scooped custard for her guests.
