Blue & Gray Town Square Paola Wedding : Jake & Kate

Katie and Jake had the most beautiful summer wedding this past 4th of July weekend. These two college sweethearts met while they were at Southern Nazarene University together. The ladies got ready at Town Square in Paola, Kansas. Everyone had so much fun singing along to Shania Twain as they were getting ready. We got some GREAT pictures from this part of the day. The gentlemen also got ready at Town Square while playing video games. They had a great time. Katie got into her dress with her mom’s assistance. It was such a special moment! Her dress was so beautiful. It had an intricate back with gorgeous bead detail. Jake and Katie had their first look in front of a mini castle. They were just so excited to see each other that they barely noticed us taking pictures! It was almost as if they were completely alone. It was so cool! They exchanged gifts and they both gave each other journals that they had been writing to each other. After their first look we spent some time with just the two of them for portrait sessions. These two are just so great together! We then ventured into the venue to take group photos. The bridal party was so much fun and they were so excited to hang out with Katie and Jake on their special day. The ceremony was next and it was performed by their college pastor. It was so, so sweet. Their first kiss was filled with so much love and joy. They had a trolley to take people from the church to the reception space. The pictures from the trolley turned out great! We also took some photos outside of the church and there is a photo where Jake is pointing at the camera. I love this picture so much because it was right after I told him to “kiss his wife,” and he pointed at me as if to say “that’s right!” The reception was awesome! They had an amazing dinner buffet, donut table and a variety of sodas. It was so cool! The dance floor was packed the entire evening and they had so much fun dancing and singing, particularly to “No Air” by Jordan Sparks. They exited their reception under sparklers and into the night. Katie and Jake, thank you so much for letting me a part of your wedding day. I loved the pictures and I hope you do too.  Have fun in Mexico!
