Kansas City Wedding: Tara and Tom February 2, 2009

Tara and Tom were married this past weekend on one of the most gorgeous days I’ve ever experienced in January. The beautiful weather fit perfectly with their beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. Tara did a fantastic job with the details of their day — she thought of everything! There were so many great and personalized details that I’ll be dedicating a post in the next few days specifically to the details of their wedding day. :)

For now, I’m so excited to share with you the portraits, ceremony and reception photos!

Tara has great style. I have a minor obsession with birdcage veils and lacy wedding dresses. Tara looked absolutely amazing — all day, I kept thinking that she looked like a movie star from a decade gone by. I love these bridal portraits… love, love, love them.

Add in the lucky groom… and we have a cute couple on our hands. :)

The weather was unseasonally nice — in the 60s! — so we took advantage of it and opted for a portrait session in the park! These photos were all taken at Loose Park near the Plaza. They’re all proof that outdoor photos in the winter can still be lovely!

The bride and the bridesmaids all wore “fur” stolls, handmade by Tara’s grandmother! I love the classic, vintage feel that their outfits have. Everything really just fit together so well.

The church was perfect for photography — their ceremony was beautiful and traditional, and I just loved how interactive Tara and Tom were throughout the service. There are so many photos of them whispering and smiling with each other, and I love that! :) They waited to see each other until the ceremony, so I’m sure it was hard to contain their excitement. Here are some of my favorites from the ceremony:

Husband and wife! :) The flower girl and ring bearer were so cute and entertained even on the way back down the aisle!

Tara and Tom’s reception was at the Uptown Theater in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. It was a gorgeous venue and really added to the elegant feel of their entire day. It also fit well with the Tara-as-an-old-time-movie-star look. It was just so classy and the details were beautiful (photos of those to come later)!
