Kansas City Loose Mansion Wedding Photography

Today I am super excited to present my favorite images from Leah and Nevin’s Loose Mansion Wedding in Kansas City. Loose Mansion in Kansas City is one of my favorite wedding venues to work at. I have been a wedding photographer for the past 15 years and the folks at Loose Mansion have always been a joy to work with. I also love the history of the Mansion. It is always so cool to think that at one time Loose Mansion was the private home of Jacob Loose and his wife. The last time I was there I was eating dinner in what used to be their bedroom complete with a small safe that was to keep Mrs. Loose’s jewelry away from thieves. It is fun to be able to work in such a historical place. Lean and Nevin really embraced the history of Loose Mansion buy taking it one step further and having their wedding ceremony at Loose Park in Kansas City. Loose Park is a beautiful plot of land located in midtown Kansas City that was donated by Mrs. Loose in memory of her husband. So it was only fitting that Leah and Nevin had their ceremony at the park and their reception back at the Mansion. Most brides who plan an outdoor dread rain. Not Leah. In fact she seemed to wish for it. We were watching as the radar was showing a massive green and yellow storm come over Kansas City and Loose Park where the ceremony was to take place. At literally the 11th hour Leah decided to make the call and continue with...

Paige and Logan got married in Kansas City this weekend. Twice. Well they actually only had one Kansas City wedding ceremony but they celebrated their marriage over two days and it was quite epic. Two days of celebration that included one ceremony, two dresses, one tux, one groom’s suit with a pink tie, three locations, a limo bus, an arcade, and a party like no other. It all started Friday as the couple said their I do’s in an intimate wedding ceremony with just those closest to them at Loose Mansion in Kansas City and continued Saturday with a reception and crazy party at the Shadow Glen Golf Club at Cedar Creek in Olathe, Kansas. Paige and Logan wanted the best of both worlds for their wedding in Kansas City and they figured out how to do just that. They turned their celebration into a weekend packed full of everything they wanted. Two days of those closest to them, a trip to Up Down arcade in the Cross Roads District with their friends, and moments that will last a lifetime. Congrats Paige and Logan! Enjoy some of my favorite images as a teaser to hold you off till you get back from your honeymoon!

Wedding at Pennway Place, Kansas City

Wedding at Pennway Place, Kansas City

On the way to her wedding ceremony, Maggie was telling her dad of her worst wedding nightmare. She said she woke up in a cold sweat, breathing heavy and hoping it was just that, a nightmare. Here it was her actual wedding day and so far everything was damn near perfect. She was on her way to her Kansas City wedding ceremony where she would marry Ben at Our Lady of Sorrows Church. The sun was shining the weather was perfect and she was ready, but as I sat in the back seat of that car as she was telling her story I wondered if she might still be a bit worried her nightmare would come true. We would have to see what the day brought and if her Kansas City wedding reception at Pennway Place  would go as planned. Being a wedding photographer in Kansas City for the past 14 years I have seen and heard of it all, so I was hoping for her sake all would go according to plan. Her nightmare, the one that startled her awake that night, was that everyone left the reception at around 9:00pm and her and Ben were the only ones left standing in the middle of the dance floor puzzled with what to do next. Thankfully, that could not have been any further from what actually happened on her wedding day. Thanks to the help of one of my favorite bands in Kansas City, Twice on Sunday. In fact the contrary actually on Saturday. Maggie and Ben decided to leave before the party was even over! That dance floor...

Wedding season began for me last Saturday with a special event that took place at Counter Point in the Crossroads in Kansas City, Missouri. I have known and photographed Rachael and her family for years so to be asked to document her wedding to Cade was an honor and the perfect start to my year. Here are the highlights: The ceremony literally lasted 5 minutes There were no toasts, garter or bouquet tosses, no cake cutting, just hours of dancing and partying complete with a rice crispy treat tower They LOVE, I mean LOVE their dog Dora. Even when they were cleaning up poop, pee, and vomit at the end of the night in their wedding clothes. Here are some of my favorite images: Cade feeling a little nervous before the ceremony.Sweet moment during the ring exchange. Waiting for a taxi in downtown Kansas...
