Stacie and Jon introduced me to Peanut Butter Whiskey, so I’m not being dramatic when I say I would die for them.

These two are downtown OP dwellers so we made plans to head out to their space for photos. They are self-professed cuddle bugs and that made them the absolute easiest to photograph. After we walked down around town, we headed out with their motorcycle out to Antioch Park to finish off their engagement session. I think it was the closest I’ve ever been to a motorcycle. Then, in between all this? We stopped for Peanut Butter Whiskey shots. Holy. Freaking. Shit. It was delicious. I’m not a big sweets gal. I’m also not a big peanut butter gal. (Although if you get me a fun shaped Reese’s I’m down to clown). The whiskey was probably one of the best things I’ve ever tasted, though. My birthday is in 2 weeks. I wouldn’t mind a bottle.

Back to these two. They are probably my favorite couple to have ever filled out a questionnaire for me. It was honest, hilarious, and reminded me that the best thing you can do is just have fun with your partner. They’re getting married in Topeka next December and once we found out we were color palette trends, I was convinced it was meant to be. Granted, hers is entirely more appropriate than my middle of August wedding, but that’s okay. Stacie is taking a page right out of the “Your day, your way” handbook. Her dress will be burgundy, she’s getting married at her venue because of all the Christmas decor, and it will beĀ beautiful.

Before you look through these photos, I’ll leave you with my favorite line from their questionnaire.

Do you have nicknames for each other?
Our nicknames change daily, though Stacie has taken an affinity to calling Jon, Jonalyn.

You should have seen his face when I mentioned it.

Motorcycle Engagement at Antioch Park – Stacie & Jon

When you meet couples who want to hire you, the more enthusiastic, the better you feel. So this same-sex West Bottoms engagement session? I’ve peaked. Destiny reached out to me at the end of 2019. Life happened. Nothing came of it. Lindsey reached out a few months later. Told me her fiancee, Destiny, wanted to […]

This post has been brewing and brewing simply because I did not want to jump the gun. My weddings that were all set to occur in the past few months involved me speaking individually to the couples affected. Like much of the midwest, “wedding season” when not counting these summer months, is in the fall. […]

Anyone else feel their ability to “person” correctly dissipate during all of this? I was a blogging fool once upon a time if you can believe it. Now, I’m trying to remember which of my perfect couples I haven’t graced the blog with yet. I immediately stumbled upon Hayley & Bryce. Just waiting in my […]

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it. Madelyn and Quincy knew they wanted to get married on their 4-year dating anniversary. Luck would have it that in 2020 it was a […]
