Once upon a time a doctor and a pilot fell in love, got married and lived happily ever after. Sounds like a fairytale, right? Well that is how the day felt photographing Stephanie and Garrett’s wedding. Stephanie and Garret are such a gorgeous couple and their wedding was incredibly beautiful. They got married at the Crowne Plaza Downtown Kansas City at the Starlight Ballroom, which was the perfect venue for this love filled event. Thank you so much Stephanie and Garret for choosing me to be your Kansas City Wedding Photographer!
Instead of me rambling about the day through my words, I asked the couple to share a little more of their story to go along with the photos.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT WHERE AND HOW YOU MET?
Garrett and Stephanie met through mutual friends while he was in the Navy and she was in college in April of 2008. Garrett had recently returned to Kansas and they quickly fell for each other.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL?
While Garrett was living in California he made the decision to ask Stephanie the big question. Although they had had numerous conversations about this decision, Stephanie was unaware of the timing. He called her family to ask for their blessing which was given with much enthusiasm. He then flew to Kansas to surprise Stephanie (which she was!). On April 22nd, 2010 after 2 years together, Garrett got down on one knee and popped the question with a beautiful diamond ring at Stephanie's apartment in Lawrence, KS.
ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
Don't forget to stop and look around at the wedding. It goes by so fast that you could miss the details that you worked hard to put together. Also try to eat :)
