Wichita KS wedding photographer – Linsey & Craig

Linsey & Craig are married!!!

What an amazing day it was! The weather was perfect! It started off a little chilly but by the time we were ready to shoot, it was amazing! I met up with the ladies at the Courtyard by Marriott in Salina where the girls were getting ready. The girls were getting hair and makeup done and relaxing. Once Linsey was in her beautiful gown from Gown Gallery in Kansas City, we headed to Elizabeth Ann Seton church in Salina to meet up with the guys.

The guys arrived ready to go in their sharp gray tuxes and Chucks. Before we knew it, it was time for Linsay & Craig’s First Look! If you have never heard of this, its simple. Its a special time prior to the ceremony for just the Bride and Groom (we are standing from afar capturing this for you!). This is the WOW moment for the couple to see each other for the first time without the stress of 150 guests watching in the background! The emotion and expressions from a First Look usually are more natural and raw than during the ceremony and it relieves any stress prior to the ceremony. This also gives you plenty of time to do your formal photographs prior to the ceremony as well.

The guests were seated and it was time for Linsay & Craig’s ceremony. The couple’s daughter Vada tossed flower petals down the isle and Linsey’s father walked her down the isle. Craig watched as his beautiful bride approached. So sweet! They had a full mass ceremony and shared in the exchanging of vows, rings and had a unity candle ceremony, and sealed the deal with an amazing first kiss as husband and wife!

After the ceremony, the guests wished Linsey & Craig off and all headed into the reception area for the dinner and dance reception. The wedding party hopped on the party bus and traveled to a few locations for fun and photos! We stopped in at the Blue Skye Brewery where the wedding party celebrated with drinks! We cleared a little area for a few images of the new Bride & Groom on the bar too! We had a few more moments to stop at the park for a few more images before we headed back and they were announced to their guests.

The entire wedding party followed by Linsey & Craig were announced into their reception with applause from all their family and friends! They shared an amazing dinner with their guests and the Best Man and Maid of Honor gave their heartfelt toasts. Linsey & Craig cut into their beautiful cake provided by a very talented local baker and mingled with their guests. The reception was decorated beautifully by Artful Events in Salina.

Linsey & Craig had their super sweet first dance as husband and wife as their beautiful daughter Vada joined in .. and it was amazing! Their dance was followed by father/daughter and mother/son dances. The couple invited their guests to participate in a wedding party march and the bouquet and garter toss. The guests danced the night away with music provided by the Groom’s cousin who is a talented musician and DJ and it was a perfect ending to a perfect day!

Congrats you two! Here are a few of my fav’s from their day! You can view their full gallery HERE.
