Kansas Wedding by Alea Lovely
June 14, 2012
If you are anything like me, you are going to want to sit down for this next one. It's pink and peony filled and perfect in every way. With pretty maids all in a row in the prettiest of pink palettes. Wow that was a lot of P's. But in all serious, this wedding is a total gem. It's sweet while still managing to be wildly sophisticated. It's relaxed and laid back while classically elegant at the same time. It's one for the books for sure...which isn't surprising in the slightest since it was photographed to utter perfection (there I go again with the p's) by Alea LovelyThere is soooo much more right here!

From the lovely bride...Three years ago I took a job working in the ER at a local hospital, my first day working there I met Jordan. We did the friend thing for a while and then began dating but after a few months (even after Jordan's protest) I decided to end things. Three months later, I'm standing in a lift line half way up a mountain in Colorado and guess who skis up right next to me...Jordan! I'd spent the last three months thinking only of him and I knew this was God telling me he was the one for me. Almost two years later we were up in a plane getting engaged!

When we first started wedding planning we knew we wanted our wedding to be laid back and fun. As it turns out we are quite indecisive, it took us about two months to decide just on the number of guest we wanted to invite, so planning it all in about five months was a tad difficult. We had looked at lots of wedding venues but none of them felt right to us until we found The Hobbs Building, it was rustic with just the right amount of character and we loved it.

Once the day actually arrived I felt like I was beaming from the inside out with excitement. Everything was so wonderful, it all seemed to be so seamless. I remember seeing myself in the mirror right after I put my dress on and I immediately became overwhelmed with emotion, it was such a surreal moment, I couldn't really believe that it was actually our wedding day. Seeing Jordan for the first time was one of my absolute favorite moments. Just to finally see him and hold him and kiss him made it all that much more wonderful and real.

I absolutely loved everything about our wedding day: The flowers, the food, the music, the pie, the dancing.... I can't say thank you enough to all of our vendors for creating such a magical day for us. It is truly incredible to see all the tiny details you've dwelled on for months finally come together. They each went above and beyond even our biggest dreams to create the most beautiful backdrop for our wedding day.
