Meghan & John were wed in front of their closest friends and family at St. Joseph Catholic Church on June 22nd. Soon after? They partied till the sun went down at St. Thomas Aquinas with 300~ of their favorite people.

Check out the slideshow below if you like adorable photos set to also adorable music or continue down below for their story and images from their amazing day.

Meghan & John met five years ago at K-State. They let me know that they bleed purple and they even had Willie the Wildcat appear for a magical dance number! Their love and their faith and families are such an amazing and large part of their lives that their ceremony at St. Joseph Catholic Church and their reception at St. Thomas Aquinas? It kind of made sense.

They had an absolutely amazing mass with their loved ones singing for them. The mass centered around their relationship and their families and their dedication to one another. It was plain to see just how loved they are. Especially when you take into account how many guests they have and how many people were in their wedding party.

Everyone looked proud and privileged to be a part of their day. The groomsmen were the friendliest and most excited ones I’ve ever had and John, who is relatively shy had a booming voice that day to help command attention. For one of the largest weddings I’ve ever photographed… It was certainly one of the easiest. Everyone was eager to help and quick to action.

Scroll through to see one of the most amazing weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing and as usual, the rest of the amazing vendors are at the bottom!

Life happened. Nothing came of it. Lindsey reached out a few months later. Told me her fiancee, Destiny, wanted to […]

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.
