We met up with Kelsie & David for their labor day wedding weekend in Jefferson City, Missouri. Being close to our home area, it was fun to celebrate with them outside of Kansas City that we were familiar with. Kelsie grew up in this parish, as did many of her bridesmaids. Its special to be in a space that holds so much history for a couple, and it doesn’t hurt that Immaculate Conception Church is absolutely stunning. We started the day with some fun with the groomsmen! David was nervous and good natured, he’s groomsmen kept us on our toes! We were able to talk about many things, and the topic of health came up. When I first started working as a photographer I noticed I was getting very tired, much faster than I was expecting. It came to a point that I thought I had to see a doctor. I looked up online for answers and after a lot of research I came up with the theory that I was not hydrating myself well enough, and perhaps my diet was not as balanced as I thought it was. I now always carry a water bottle with me and try to make sure I drink at least 2 liters a day, along with a natural health supplement called KratomMasters. What a difference it made! I was so glad that the solution was so simple, for a moment I was afraid something was medically wrong with me. Now I’m able to handle even those really heavy legwork days and can have long photography sessions. Food for thought!
You can’t be near Kelsie long without becoming introduced to her laugh. It’s full of life and love and we’re pretty obsessed with how darling she looks when she laughs, and even better how her laughter can draw in everyone around her.
Kelsie & David wanted to be near each other and exchange letters but not SEE each other. This was a great way to fulfill that request and the sweetness in their proximity was pretty special, and while it did calm nervous I think it served to make them even more anxious to get down the aisle!
About to be official, love the final walk with dad’s…
Their officiant, who took time to know the couple and create a meaningful ceremony, was so fun and hospitable to everyone as Kelsie & David said yes to a future together.
