The Bride & The Bauer Kansas City Spring Wedding : Ellie & Thomas

Ellie and Thomas first contacted me over a year ago and I can’t believe how fast time has gone!!  

These two high school sweethearts met in biology class and a few years later they finally started dating! Their wedding was on a beautiful spring day and while it was a little cloudy we were so thankful the rain stayed away! My favorite detail of Ellie’s was her diamond necklace that belonged to her great grandmother, with whom she shared a namesake. I LOVE family heirlooms!! My favorite detail of Thomas’ was his gold sunglasses. They were sharp! After all the buttons were done and everyone was ready it was time to head to the church. 
Thomas and Ellie said “I do” at Ascension Catholic Church in Overland Park. This beautiful church is where they attend mass every weekend! Before the ceremony these two shared a first look. I love it when couples have a first look, because it means they have a few minutes alone together in the middle of a chaotic day. After the ceremony, their guest greeted the newly married couple as they exited the church. 
From there, we headed to Loose Park for portraits. The trees there were in full bloom and it was PERFECT!! Spring weddings are officially my new favorite! I love the images I got here of Ellie and Thomas snuggling in front of the trees. Up next was The Kauffman Center, which has a timeless beauty and perfectly complemented the couple. 
Finally, it was time to celebrate with all their friends and family!! The Bride and The Bauer was the PERFECT setting for these two! Their rustic feel with exposed walls is beautiful! Shortly after they entered dinner was served and it was time to party! They started off the night with the grand march! What a fun way to get all your guests up and dancing right away! This also led them straight into their first dance where they were surrounded by their friends and family. I love these images of them dancing with their loved ones in the background. Up next was my favorite part of the evening! The Groom’s family are auctioneers, so they auctioned off the Bride’s shoes!! It was so fun to see all the generations get involved! The Groom even took a turn! 
Congrats Ellie and Thomas!! I am so excited for you two and I had a blast with you two!
