This wedding is a little more special to my heart. Julia & Austin got married exactly 364 days after I did at the SAME venue. When we met, when I was still only a fiance to my now husband and we both found out we choose the same venue... it was serious photographer client love at first sight kind of a thing.
Julia and Austin have been together for 10 years as of December 2018. High school sweet hearts, college sweet hearts, now they have the rest of their lives to be sweet hearts. They are relationship goals.
Their entire wedding day was held at the gorgeous The Bride & The Bauer in downtown KCMO. Their wedding colors were emerald green, copper, and white. Julia went to no length to include copper into all her details. The bride's maid shoes, invitations, jewelry, even Austin's wedding band has copper lines on the outside of it!
The ladies started getting ready in The Bride and the Bauer's undergoes bridal suite which is equipped with a hot pink chair, floral wall art, and a great view of downtown KC.
The girls had some fun with champagne and confetti to celebrate their best friend's wedding day. I am a sucker for glitter throws on the wedding day!
Julia purchased her lovely gal pals adorable lace sleeved robes, light pink for them, white for her.
The guy's proceeded to get ready in their own groom's room provided by The Bride and the Bauer. The groom's room is an amazing space for any guy on his wedding day. The room has gorgeous worn leather couches, bow tie wall, and is close to the kitchen to grab any drink you may bring.
Julia and Austin opted out of the first look but took the opportunity to give each other gifts. Julia hand wrote Austin a beautiful letter and Austin gifted Julia with an necklace with a simple emerald stone. The tradition of waiting to see each other until the ceremony has changed through the years to now become an anticipation factor. To really get the true look from the groom and from the bride.
After the ceremony we did a few formal family photos featuring one of the venue's famous walls. I am a big believer in family photos, even though it may take some time they are REALLY appreciated in the end of the day.
For the wedding party, bride & groom formal photos we hit up World Way One Memorial, Crossroads district, and of course the famous alley of The Bauer's. Julia & Austin has a crazy fun wedding party! They were ready for any pose and even created their own fun ones.
Julia and Austin capped the night off with a gran entrance into their venue, dinner, toasts, cake cutting, and dancing all night long.
Congratulations Julia & Austin! I am so glad I have became part of your life and I am so enjoying see your marriage grow!
