Matt & Lacy's Wedding | Peeper Ranch | Kansas City Wedding Photographer

Matt & Lacy's wedding was held at Peeper Ranch on August 16, 2014. I had the honor of taking their engagement photos last November and have been dreaming of what their beautiful wedding would look like ever since. Matt & Lacy are perfect for each other and truly do bring out the best qualities in one another. I am honored to have been able to photograph this beautiful day for them. 

The girls started out by getting their hair and makeup done at the Courtyard Marriott. Lacy was so relaxed and calm the entire morning. Here are some of my favorite photos from this beautiful day.

The wedding party took a shuttle from the hotel to Peeper Ranch. Matt & Lacy opted not to see each other prior to the ceremony so I captured photos of the girls and guys separately.

I have to say, this balcony at Peeper Ranch is FABULOUS. It was the perfect place for photos of the bride and her bridesmaids. Just stunning.

Since Matt & Lacy wanted to see each other for the first time as Lacy walked down the aisle, I devised a plan to get them in the same shot without seeing each other. This is one of my favorite photos because it was such an emotional moment for them.

The dance floor was PACKED all night. Everyone danced the night away to the sounds of Johnny The DJ Quest, who was AMAZING.

Lacy owns a dance studio (The Dance Studio in Paola & Louisburg) and has a passion for dance. She was tearin' it up at her reception. It was AWESOME.

Friends of Matt's have a long-standing tradition of serenading the bride to the song, "To Be With You" by Mr. Big. One of my favorite moments.
