River Market Event Place Black & White Wedding : Ryan & Kate

Kate and Ryan’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous. These two are so in love and that was reflected in every part of their big day. They met during their junior year at Missouri S&T.  Ryan was in Sig Ep and Kate was in a sister sorority, DOL. They have quite a few mutual friends, some of which were in the wedding party, and met at a Sig Ep social. They had dated for a few years and then in 2015, Ryan got accepted into KU’s School of Medicine and Kate was transferred to an office in Kansas City. They were finally in the same city and Ryan proposed shortly thereafter! Ryan proposed after his White Coat Ceremony for med school. After the ceremony, he surprised Kate by getting down on one knee in front of dozens of people, including both families!

Their wedding day was fantastic. You simply could not have asked for better weather. Kate started at Posh KC with her bridesmaids getting ready and then ventured off to the River Market Event Place where the wedding would eventually be. Ryan and his groomsmen got ready in an Airstream trailer outside of the event space. These two would eventually see each other as they were walking down the aisle. The ceremony was very traditional up until the point of their unity ceremony. Ryan and Kate, signifying their unity, partook in each other’s favorite snack food, Doritos and Dr. Pepper. I absolutely adored that! It was fantastic and hilarious and unlike anything I’ve ever seen! After the ceremony, we went around town to take photos with the bridal party. Everyone was so much fun and so enthusiastic! Kate and Ryan have a very palpable bond and it was evident throughout the entire day. I loved shooting their wedding. The party bus was a riot and eventually took us back to the reception where they would ultimately party the night away. The speeches were great, the dancing was a blast and everyone was having the time of their lives. They played the drinking game “Thunderstruck” and we got some GREAT pictures from it. Thank you so much for letting me be such a big part of your day!
