Clair and Alex must be very lucky because it rained almost the whole time on their wedding day and as they say rain is good luck. These two were so great to photograph and didn't let a little rain stop them from having a great day. Their ceremony took place at Bristol Hill United Method Church and their reception was held at the beautiful Lake Quivira Country Club. Thank You Clair and Alex for letting us be a part of your day.
I asked Clair and Alex to share a little more about themselves and their love story to go along with their photos.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT HOW AND WHERE YOU MET?
Went to the same school, Turner High School. Both of us played sports, he was a grade older than I. We never took notice or spoke to each other in school but in my 2nd year and his 3rd year in college we met through mutual friends and instantly we found a best friend through each other.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE PROPOSAL?
Alex and I love to travel together. Going on a yearly trip to Colorado we went for, what I thought was to celebrate Alex's birthday, mountain bike. and white water raft the next. We love Colorado and the mountains. On the day of Alex's bday, July 18th we were taking a longer trip into the mountains to one of our favorite small towns to spend the night. I was playing with the camera , wen Alex (driving) whipped into a small gravel lookout spot with a great cliff underneath. I was not very pleased but we got out quickly, our buddy Drew grabbed his camera and pointed to the good view for a photo... Before I knew it Alex had ushered near the incredible view and he got down on a knee presenting a lightly shaking box in his hand. I literally lost my breath when he asked me to marry him. I totally said yes and he had a wonderful evening planned of calling all that was important and staying in one of our favorite places to be. He took the celebration of his day, his birthday and made that the day we decided to be joined together. He is so selfless and loves so much.
WHAT LED YOU TO CHOOSE PHOTOS BY NEYAN FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY?
Looking photographers up on the internet. I looked at the knot. I believe... It recommended some top rated photographers in my area. I contacted 3 from the suggestions that day and Neyan was the only one I actually spoke with. She called me back that same hour, I left a message. She was great to work with and quite perfect.
DO YOU HAVE A MEMORABLE MOMENT FROM YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Our vows. Both Alex and I loved sharing our vows and it was beautiful to hear each others promises and commitment.

IF YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO REDO THE WHOLE THING AGAIN, WOULD YOU CHANGE ANYTHING?
I would NOT change one strand of falling curl, which was basically flat by ceremony time... The love, the faces of all our happy friends and family, everything was perfect because it was as it was suppose to be.
