Travis and Kristi are recent K-State alums and this Wildcat love story was colored in purple and silver all day. Except the flowers. They thought they had scheduled the wedding on a K-State bye week, but the annual farmageddon showdown with our beloved Iowa State was later moved to the date of their wedding so the game could be played at Arrowhead here in Kansas City. I wasn’t happy about it, but when K-State beat the Cyclones that day, I was willing to concede a victory so that the overall happiness of our bride and groom could be ensured. Especially since Travis and his groomsmen were attending the game at the risk of the wedding. 🙂 They were able to make it back in time (just barely), and the wedding did actually happen. Bonus!
There is definitely some electricity when these two get together. Usually in the form of lightning in the sky. For their engagement session, there was a tornado warning issued while we were photographing. And then, as it turns out, during their wedding day—and specifically during the time that we had blocked out for the two of them—we got a severe thunderstorm warning dropped on us. Inclement weather really puts everyone on edge, but these two were really great in still making sure that we were able to get the shots we needed.
Their reception was at the beautiful Lake Quivira Country Club and it was crazy all night. I don’t think we’ve ever taken more pictures at a reception. DJ AJ Johnson threw a great party and gave us a ton of pictures to giggle at afterward. 🙂
Guys, thanks for being so awesome! Hope you enjoy everything!
Even though rain sucks, I LOVE black and white umbrella shots.
Dad brought some funny. . .
But mostly the tears.
Travis was actually a Willie the Wildcat while in school, so it was only fitting that Willie would show up to the wedding looking sharp.
I’m not saying this photo is artistically amazing, but it makes me laugh. 🙂
See photo caption above.
Then the King of Pop paid us a visit.
I believe this sing-along was led by Bon Jovi.
Congrats guys, we wish you a life full of love and laughter and K-State success (except when they play Iowa State).
