We had a heck of a time getting Steve and Melissa’s engagement session in the crazy Kansas City spring we froze through, rescheduling 3 different times. She said all along she was just paying her dues for the outdoor wedding they were planning for later in the year. Well, sure enough, Steve and Melissa were blessed with a gorgeous summer day, full of sunshine. Their wedding ceremony was at Loose Park and we took most of our photos there beforehand. They made a concerted effort to keep the wedding super simple and laid back and from our perspective, they more than reaped the benefits of all their proactive planning. After the wedding they had their reception at the Boulevard Brewery event space overlooking downtown. It is a really swanky space that provides some great views and photos of Kansas City. Steve and Melissa are pretty big into flowers and gardening, so saying they were excited to work with Erica, the KC Flower Girl, says a lot about her work. They had cute planters, mason jars and other floral details all around the ceremony and reception. Melissa’s makeup for the day was done by Jolie Artistry. I’m really proud of some of the moments that we captured of the beautiful day below.
