Stacy and Aaron got married January 2018 at the Booth Hotel in downtown Independence, Kansas.
We absolutely love this location that they chose for their wedding, so we set out early on this wedding day from Missouri to Kansas, and made sure to capture all the historic details this venue has to offer. After seeing all the fabulous tile work and details that went throughout the first floor of the hotel (that we would later use for portraits), I was feeling pretty great when I met Stacy for some portraits of her finishing up her hair and makeup.
After a first look with Stacy's Dad and Grandpa, we headed out to explore some of the back alleys and streets around the hotel. We didn't feel too bad for making the bride trek the downtown streets with us, as she skipped the high heels for some sweet teal converse low-tops! So smart! We snapped as many portraits as we could with the bridal party while we still had the light to work with, and then headed inside to start the pre-wedding touch ups. Early sundown times mean we're usually running right up against the end of daylight for portraits but it always ensures we're working with the most flattering light, which we love :)
The buzz of friends and family arriving meant that it would soon be time for Aaron to see his beautiful bride for the first time! I could tell by the look on Aaron's face and the emotion he displayed that this was most definitely one of the best moments of his life!
After the vows had been said, we broke out the flashes, and took the bride and groom and wedding party around the first floor of the hotel and down a couple city streets for some portraits.
Stacy and Aaron, we had such an amazing time getting to spend the day with you and photograph your wedding! We are wishing you and your growing family many years of love and happiness!
