Kelby + Alex | Kansas City Wedding Photography at Village Presbyterian Church and Backyard Reception

It just didn’t happen too often that I photographed two sisters’ wedding within one year period.

Just seven months before her wedding day Kelby was one of the bridesmaids in her older sister’s, Leigh, wedding. I was pleasantly surprised when I found that Kelby decided to hire me as her photographer not long after I photographed Leigh’s wedding.

So there I was seven months later photographing the wedding of Kelby and Alex.  Their wedding day was truly a family affair since they had their wedding reception on the beautiful family farm in Lenexa, Kansas, and they did most of the decoration for the outdoor reception tent themselves.

On to the images.

Kelby was covering her face so the incoming guests couldn’t see her before the ceremony while her bridesmaids were forming human barrier to block the guests’ view.

Before the ceremony Kelby and her dad took the time to practice their dance move for the father-daughter dance later in the evening.

In the midst of the chaos of the wedding day Kelby and Alex managed to find a private moment after the ceremony.
