Elegant Union Station Kansas City Wedding : Jon & Carrie

Jon and Carrie said “I do” on a warm, sunny day in June of 2017. Carrie wore a spectacular dress that was handpicked from Kleinfeld in New York City. She ended up with two dresses from there and we captured amazing pictures of her in both dresses. The wedding party prepared for the big day at the Westin Crown Center. This BEAUTIFUL hotel made for a classic backdrop for “getting ready” photos. Carrie slipped into her gown with the help of her Maid of Honor and mother. I always love these pictures. She looked like a princess in this dress! Next, her dad came in to help to finish up. His suit vest was made from the same material as her dress bodice. How neat is that?! Jon spent the morning hanging out with his friends, getting ready and relaxing. Jon put his finishing touches on with his dad’s help then he went upstairs for their first look. These two were so excited to see each other! Their wedding day was finally here! Up next, we went to Union Station for photos, where they would later be dancing the night away! Their bridal party was so much fun! They truly made my job so easy! The portraits of Jon and Carrie with the ceiling of Union Station in the background are some of my favorites! Next was the ceremony. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is that moment where the bride and her father are alone taking in the weight of the moment that is about to happen. As a big-time daddy’s girl, this moment makes me emotional every time. Carrie walked down the aisle to Jon with a big smile on her face. It was finally time to say “I do!!” These two exchanged vows with their closest friends and family watching. My favorite view had to be from the balcony! The stained-glass window complemented them perfectly! Finally, it was time for their reception at Union Station! Dan Meiners transformed this space! The dusty blues, pinks & grays really made the space pop! Their reception started off with a bang when Jon and Carrie entered the reception under a confetti canon! That really set the tone for the evening!
