Phil and Katie crossed paths during their time at The University of Kansas. They first met in December 2013 right before Christmas Break. It was Phil’s sweetness and sense of humor that initially caught Katie’s eye when they were first introduced. The next few months were filled with lots of KU basketball games, snow days, and dinner dates. They quickly learned they had many common interests and knew this was something special. Phil’s job with Frito Lay moved him out to Lynchburg, VA in the Summer of 2016. After 2 months of a long distance relationship, Phil flew back to Kansas City to surprise Katie and ask a very exciting question. Katie’s sister Betsy called her and told her she had car trouble and needed a ride ASAP. Being the loving sister she is, Katie quickly left work to meet Betsy. Expecting to find Betsy with a flat tire, Katie instead met Phil and she quickly had her suspicions about what would happen next. Phil asked Katie for her hand in marriage on a Friday night at sunset with the Kansas City skyline as a backdrop. She was so excited to see him and quickly answered “YES!” Next, they met their families and close friends for a gathering where they laughed and celebrated all night!
I met up with the ladies at parlor salon in Leawood, Kansas where they were putting the finishing touches on their hair and makeup. It was a blast. We then ventured over to St Michael the Archangel Catholic parish, the church that Katie’s family calls home. This church is always so spectacular! The guys all gathered in the basement of St Michael’s while they got ready. Katie was stunning in her dress! I loved the lace on the top! Shortly after Katie’s sister and mother helped her in her wedding gown it was time to walk down the aisle to her hubby! These two were so excited to see each other! Phil got the biggest smile on his face when he saw Katie. Their ceremony was beautiful and Father Matt delivered a delightful homily. After these two said “I do” we met everyone who attended the wedding outside for a quick few photos! I love all the joy in everyones face! They were finally married! The bridal party then went to Liberty Memorial for some photos with the beautiful KC skyline! I love this view of KC, it takes my breath away every time. Katie & Phillip were so cute together! These two were so excited to be married! The reception was held in the basement of St Michael’s and they did a fantastic job transforming the space! Their reception was so much fun and i loved their sparkler sendoff at the end of the night! Congrats you two! Hope you enjoyed your honeymoon!!
