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

Ed Sheeran and Kansas City Weddings Kansas City is nicknamed the heart of America. Since living here, we have been bombarded with warm smiles, hugs, and much love!

You know the feeling when you fall in love? You know when you just turn to your partner and think: “Wow, I am so lucky to have this person in my life!” Once you get to that point in life, you just don’t want that feeling to go away. The more you get to know […]
Josh and I have literally been to hundreds of weddings. In most of the weddings we attend, we hear wedding vows that say something along the lines “for better for worse, in sickness or in health, for richer or for poorer.” These wedding vows typically precede words that are unique to each couple getting married. No […]
How did we come up with These Are Our Vows? Many probably don’t know this about me (Loraine) but I graduated from college with a Marriage, Family, and Human Development minor. At the time I started a photography career, I did not expect that I could use this degree in the wedding industry. I remember […]

If you look closely you’ll recognize Hetal and Samir once again in another wedding this year! Jessie was one of Hetal’s bridesmaids over 6 years ago.

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 […]
Magdalena’s Venue and Salon Jessie got ready and Magdalena’s Venue and Salon. It is such a beautiful gem hidden in Tonganoxie Kansas! The fact that the venue has a salon built into it is just a brilliant idea. The lighting within the salon in the back of the venue—which is where Jessie got ready—was just […]
On a lovely late summer afternoon, we arrived at the LDS Kansas City Temple grounds to find the flowerbeds fully blossomed! The droplets of water poured out from higher parts of the fountain to the next. The fountain and the landscaping were, as usual, beautifully manicured! As we arrived before the sealing before the sealing […]
I can’t believe that we are actually at the last part of Priya and Ashish’s wedding! Their Indian wedding reception. The large vases—which was part of the hotel—literally had flowers pouring out from the top. And the guest list… Priya loved the concept of having a picture of the two of them with all of […]
