We are so very happy for Abby to have found someone so completely perfect for her. She’s found a fermentation technician (bread baker!), a hard-worker, a good man to build life with. For Dylan, to he has found a joyful and sweet helpmate, full of compassion and kindness. We couldn’t be more honored to be apart of this couple’s wedding.
We met Abby as we’ve developed relationships with fellow wedding vendors here in our beloved Northland Kansas City. When we met, Abby and her mom were on a journey to opening and establishing the cutest cafe in Platte City, Bee Creek Bakery. If you follow us on Facebook & Instagram, you’ve seen us mention them before! So, it’s only natural that Abby met Dylan as Bee Creek established their bread vendor for cafe through Dylan’s small batch wood-fired bread shop, Hearth Bread Co. Over the course of their business together Dylan offered to have Abby simply text her orders to him ;) for convenience of course. As they say, the rest is history!
For their session we thought baking would make a wonderful ‘activity’ to make the portrait session more unique to them, which is always our goal! We met them in Weston, on a cool rainy summer morning this week for their engagement session at the home they are building together. Before we began photographing the rain came down outside and we shared giant mugs of coffee while they shared the history Weston and their home with us – seriously it’s stuff like this that make us so fortunate to do this work! Dylan is rebuilding, what will become their home. He’d started just before they met but she’s joined and complimented his progress. This cottage was the first trapping cabin after Lewis and Clark passed through what is now Weston, beams show original hatchet marks!
In 750 square feet as you can image the kitchen is functional, we were amazed at the perfect harmony these two have in the kitchen. These professionals shined in the kitchen, so graceful together, like a well rehearsed dance. Together they made a “love pie” together – which we enjoyed after the session and it tasted AMAZING!
We rounded out the session outside enjoying their awesome view of the historic town – right before the rain chased us in to enjoy pie and more coffee!
Laughter pours out of these two. We feel lighter and happier after being in their presence. We can’t wait to watch them build life together, and look forward to the perfect fall wedding celebration! Wishing you all the best. XO – Sarah & Ginger
