to hold onto in life
Each couple has a story. Ours started on July 15th 2005 when I realized I wanted to marry her. I was so excited I wanted to tell my best friend, so I turned to Loraine and got down on my knees and told her how I felt. -Josh

Jessie and Andrew’s Wedding Portraits Before Ceremony in Tonganoxie Kansas
In most weddings we get to spend a few minutes before the wedding ceremony to go and take some wedding portraits of just the bride and groom. And this occasion we had planned to take a few at Magdalena’s Venue (we saw some yesterday too). Then we planned to go to the Brunswick which is where they will have their reception as well.
I love that they had that chalkboard sign saying that it was wedding day! It practically punctuates the fact that all the planning and preparation has finally paid off for the bride and groom.
At the Brunswick, I really wanted to highlight the features of both the ceiling and the woodwork within the venue. Both the bar and the hardwood floor are amazing features. I sent a lot of reflection created by the hardwood floors which accentuated both the bride and the groom.
Jessie’s lovely bouquet was made by Fun and Fabulous Floral and Gifts. Their storefront is literally across the street from the Brunswick Ballroom. It was amazing to see how much Jessie was able to accomplish in one single street! All three locations where at walking distance. It’s very reassuring to have everything so close to each other on your wedding day!
The bar had a handsome woodwork on it which accentuates the venue very well. We absolutely love how powerful both Andrew and Jessie look as they say posed at the bar. And I absolutely loved that I was looking when Andrew decided to spontaneously give Jessie a kiss before helping her down off the bar.
Just before going back to Magdalena’s to start the ceremony we took a few more pictures near some prairie grass which accentuates pretty much every corner in the Kansas and Kansas City area this time of year. We love how prairie grass looks when the sun hits it from behind. So romantically classic! ❤

"Wonderful experience with Mojica - our pictures are stunning and perfectly captured our big day. Loraine and Josh were also helpful with other vendors and invaluable when it came to planning the timeline."
"Every time I look at our pictures I can't help but smile. They took my vision and made the pictures come to life."
