Cara and Andy reached out to me about their Overland Park Arboretum Wedding when it was clear COVID-19 had other plans for their union.

Their plans involved a grand traditional Indian wedding to celebrate Anudeep (Andy) and Cara’s union and his family would come and celebrate and everything would be perfect. We were able to keep that perfect bit, but the rest got flipped a little on its head.

Their intimate wedding moved to the Overland Park Arboretum and the reception to a beautiful barn with donkeys, horses, and delicious food trucks. We started the day with a first look between Andy and Cara while their family stood in the wings looking on.

Then, their ceremony was held in a small off shoot of the park designated for just this. They had live music playing and after the ceremony we were able to explore the arboretum with the kindest volunteer. She made sure we were able to use all the best spots for photos (that you need permission to take photos at, so please don’t just wander in!) and was so kind and patient.

We left the Arboretum and headed out to the small barn that was adorned with cultural flags. The donkeys and horses had no use for us that day, but we still managed to grab a couple of cute photos. The reception was perfect and when Jerusalem Cafe caters, you know you’re in for a good time.
