We have such a beautiful community in Kansas City and it is so lovely to see so many dear friends come together to make a couple’s day so sweet! These two lovebirds are high school sweethearts and had the most lovely day with their families and friends celebrating their wedding together. From Carson’s twin brother actually marrying them to the sweetest little details including a pink flamingo dancing, it was a beautiful day! Here is their darling first look and a few words from the heart to start!
I think this may have been one of the most beautiful outdoor wedding ceremonies we have filmed to date – the structure that was created for Katie and Joe’s ceremony was just breathtaking. And then when the guests entered the reception at Indian Hills Country Club they were wowed AGAIN! Just amazing work from Studio Dan Meiners and his team. But what I loved the most about this day were all the beautiful words spoken to and about these two sweet people. So much love and joy surrounding them on their wedding day. Congratulations – I can’t wait to edit your feature film!

I think my favorite thing is getting to come back and celebrate a wedding day with a former family. The honor of being asked to film a sibling of a former client is not lost on us and we cherish these wedding days. Claire and JC had the most wonderful spring day in Kansas City and perhaps one of the most fun wedding receptions to date! You will see them celebrating in the latest slowmotion video booth video here as well! I can’t wait to tell your story with your feature Claire and JC – until then, here is a sneak peek and a darling first look!

It is no secret that I adore the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. This goes WAY back to my childhood taking classes in the summer and then continued as I completed my Master’s Thesis for Art Museum Education from KU working closely with the education department at the Nelson. I always figured I would somehow do work at this beautiful space, and although it has turned out to be a little bit different than I had imagined when I was studying for my Masters Degree, I really DO get to work in this beautiful space every year! What an amazing place to have a wedding. Kali and Adam love this iconic Kansas City space too and when they contacted me to film their wedding here I was beyond thrilled to help them. They were one of the first couples to have their wedding ceremony on the grounds of the Nelson and it was perfect! The reception in this beautiful space was stunning and their guests had a wonderful time!
Here is a little highlight featuring this amazing space and this sweet couple. Make sure you check out the interview below from the Event Planning Team over at the museum! This wedding is featured in the Summer 2017 issue of The Knot – so you will have to check that out on your newsstand.

When Kindra approached me to shoot this styled shoot in a new venue and vineyard in Kansas City I jumped on the opportunity. Bourgmont Vineyard is beautiful and will be even more stunning once the grapes begin to mature. They offer a beautiful and spacious home for the family to get ready in and the renovated stable is stunning and can hold 350. There is a lovely pond and gardens for an outdoor ceremony and I could just imagine a sweet couple saying their vows on this sprawling estate. It was raining the day of the shoot, but we had a break in the weather long enough to get some great shots outside!
Make sure you check out May’s issue of Johnson County Lifestyle Magazine. They featured Kindra and her amazing work with Simple Elegance and a rockstar team of KC professionals!
