High School Sweethearts Kansas City Thompson Barn Wedding : Aaron & Megan

Foreshadowing a marriage that would be bolstered by faith, Aaron and Megan met when they were Bible Quizzing as children. They dated throughout high school and got engaged shortly after high school. Together they ventured off to college to attend Mount Vernon Nazarene University. Their wedding day was a calming, with anticipation being the overwhelming feeling of the day. Aaron and his friends got ready at the church and then played a board game together. Megan and her friends were also getting ready at the church which allowed for fantastic “getting ready” pictures. My favorite picture from this wedding was the moment Megan’s mother and grandmother helped her put on her wedding dress. It was such a sweet moment and I’m so glad we were able to capture it. When the doors opened for Megan to walk down the aisle, you could feel the aforementioned anticipation culminate and become a shared joy. During the ceremony they read love letters, captivating and moving every single person in the room, including the photographer. The performed a Unity Braid, uniting him, her and God. Their first kiss was one of love and passion; a fitting segue into an incredible reception. After the ceremony, everyone headed to the Thompson Barn where we took portraits of the newlyweds. They did so well in the portrait shots, you can truly tell they balance each other out in every way. For dinner, they had a baked potato bar which was just the best thing ever. Aaron’s parents enjoy ballroom dancing and they were amazingly talented. They put on an incredible show for everyone watching, it was really fun part of the evening. A number of times through the evening I was able to capture Aaron and Megan dancing as if they were the only two on the dance floor. These were very powerful moments. The reception ended with them exiting while their guests showered them with bird seed. It was a wonderful wedding and thank you so much for allowing me to capture your day. Below are a few of my favorite images and you can find their gallery here.
