Outside ceremonies are always so beautiful, but watching the weather report for them the week before makes me so nervous for the couple. Even up to the day of Lindsey and Steven’s wedding, the weather report kept changing. One minute the report would show clear weather and the next it showed rain right at the time of their planned gazebo wedding in Hutchinson, Kansas. We watched the skies all morning and, right before their ceremony time, the dark skies rolled in and had us all worried. When the bride walked out and started coming down the aisle, the sun popped out just a bit and we ended up with beautiful weather. There were slightly moody blue skies with just a hint of sun, making for such a pretty scene at the gazebo in George Pyle Park. The rain ended up staying away all day, and everything was perfect.
Lindsey and Steven traveled from Florida to come back home for their wedding. Since it’s home to them, having Hutchinson, Kansas be the location of their wedding and a big part of their wedding photography was important to them. Of course the park and gazebo where their ceremony was held was absolutely beautiful, but we also found a great rustic train station nearby for some of their couple photos. That same train station is where Lindsey had her senior photos taken, so it was a unique, personal touch to be able to go back there for some of her wedding photos.
I loved working with Lindsey and Steven and enjoyed the non-traditional touches they added to their day to make it fit them. One of my favorite parts was the unconventional wedding music they chose, including Coldplay’s Yellow and then using Papa Roach’s Last Resort for a fun, celebratory ending to their reception. Congrats to Lindsey and Steven, and thank you for letting me be part of your big day as your wedding photographer!
