Colorful Elms Hotel and Spa Kansas City Wedding : Dejan & Liz

Liz and Dejan’s day took place at The Elms in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. The weather, seemingly aware of such a day taking place, couldn’t have been more perfect. These two decided not to see each other until Liz was walking down the aisle which provided a beautifully emotional moment. There’s an image of Dejan’s mother watching Dejan to see his reaction when he first saw Liz and it became one of my favorite images. During the ceremony, we found out that Liz and Dejan had first met at the gym. For weeks, Dejan had been inconspicuously eyeing Liz using the mirrors in the gym and finally approached her by endearingly asking “how tall are you?”. The ceremony was filled with laughter and joyous tears, it was incredibly obvious just how loved these two are by their friends and family. After the ceremony, we headed outside to capture some wonderful portrait shots.  Liz looked amazing and Dejan was seemingly in awe of her beauty throughout the entire portrait session, these two made my job so easy! Everyone had a lot of fun at the reception, Dejan and his family are from Croatia so they played a lot of Croatian music which kept the dance floor full for the entire night. Liz and Dejan, thank you so much for letting me be apart of your wedding. Below are my favorites and here is their full gallery.

    Sara … picking a photographer is one of the scariest things for a wedding because you want all of the best shots of the day … you and Courtney did an amazing job of doing just that! Liz absolutely, hands down, no question about it picked you for a reason … it was a match made in heaven! Thank you for making her “Best Day Ever” the most important day of her life by capturing each and every one of those moments 🙂
