Kansas City same sex wedding photography at the Midland Theater

I don’t always blog on a Saturday but when I do it is for good reason. Not only is my excitement to share this wedding story with you through the roof but I am also proud to know these two women and to have been a part of this amazing event. Hailee and Tiffany came into the studio yesterday to view their Kansas City wedding photographs from their New Years Eve Wedding at the Midland Theater in Kansas City and now I am able to show all of you. This wedding was particularly special for me in many ways. Not only was it the last wedding Wirken Photography documented for Hailee’s family it was also my first Kansas City same sex wedding. It was the perfect way to end the year after so much had changed in the arena of equality for the LGBT community. On June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled that the US Constitution guarantees the right for same-sex couples to marry in all 50 US states and on December 31st, 2015 myself and about 150 others got the chance to witness the power of that decision. #lovewins is no joke. I have witnessed countless types of love in my 13 year career as a wedding photographer in Kansas City and one thing is undeniable. People love differently. Some love PDA some don’t, some couples party together, some pray together. Love truly has no boundaries and that could not be more true for Hailee and Tiffany. I got to witness a different type of love I have not witnessed before between these two and it...

Kansas City New Years Eve wedding photography at the Midland Theater | Teaser Tuesday of Hailee and Tiffany

I have been patiently, or not so patiently, waiting to post these images from Hailee and Tiffany’s New Years Eve wedding in Kansas City at the Midland Theater. This wedding was a first on many levels for me. Most importantly it was my first time being a same sex wedding photographer. It was also the first time photographing a wedding at the Midland Theater in Kansas City. I loved every minute of witnessing these two girls commit to each other. Wirken Photography has had the privilege of documenting all of Hailee’s sibling’s weddings so it was an honor to be with this family again for the last child to tie the knot and they went out with a bang! This wedding was so full of love I am pretty sure that theater was about to burst. There was lots of talk about #lovewins that night and I can certainly attest to the truth of that statement. Love most certainly won at the Midland Theater in Kansas City on New Years Eve. No doubt. So please sit back and enjoy what I and Brandon Parigo witnessed on this fine night in December. What a perfect way to round out 2015. Here are a few of my favorite images from the night including a special teaser video from Brandon. Enjoy! Wonderful moment while Hailee and Tiffany were listening to their friend do a reading at the ceremony. Hailee surprised Tiffany with a celebrity impersonator drag show at the reception. Here they are shaking it off to Taylor Swift.    The end of the night back at their loft sharing a moment...
