Californos Westport Wedding – Hey Plantes!

 

MeKayla and Rory were a #matchmadeinwarby and the rest is history.

In honor of my unapologetic love for puns, I’ll let you know that MeKayla actually said, “We met while both working for Warby Parker. It was love at first sight! (get it? Because Warby Parker sells eyewear… but also, it really was love at first sight).” If you’d like me to immediately love you, make a pun and make it good.

Californos Westport is one of the most versatile and amazing wedding venues in Kansas City, and I was so excited when MeKayla and Rory told me that’s where they were getting married. It’s a restaurant/bar as well as a wedding venue that has adorable indoor and outdoor options. These two made their indoor space their own in the most amazing and thoughtful way with beautiful greenery and it was one of the cutest setups I’ve ever seen.

Their first look was perfect and intimate, and they had written their vows to read in private, which is a super cute tradition that I’m loving. Folks, if you know you’re going to be emotional and you’re not great with an audience, there is NO shame in making your vows completely private. I actually think it’s super adorable and it’s fun to get a quick picture of the setup then I can leave you alone to feel the love.

Wanna hear an even cuter proposal?

Rory had an elaborate plan for a scavenger but, the morning of the proposal day, MeKayla accidentally found the ring. Rory had to propose on the spot, which was in our apartment at 6:00am. We both had to work at 7am but were able to celebrate by leaving work early and hitting our favorite restaurant.

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
