Kim + Mike | Wedding | Lee’s Summit, Missouri

As with any July wedding, the weather was worrying me.  But I was not worried about rain, it was the heat that had me concerned.  It was hotter than a billy goat in a pepper patch.  We were sort of saved during the outside photos as some clouds rolled through and took a little bit of the sizzle off.  Right before we went into the reception, I was shooting some portraits of Kim.  I was telling her I wanted to have her spin around a few times for a photo.  She was not wanting to spin around too much for the fear of getting dizzy.  After the first spin she was sold…she said it was like air conditioning for her dress.  Now I know to have my brides spin early on a hot day ;)

The photo below is one of my favorites.  It is a completely raw, and beautiful snapshot.  Mike got very emotional while watching the slideshow they prepared and Kim was there to comfort him.

Yes…Mike requested “Crank That” by Soulja Boy and knew the dance…that right there made my night.

Mike and his groomsmen’s suits also looked very sharp.  A cool touch that Kim + Mike did was get a custom Dia de los Muertos cake topper for the grooms cake.  The cake topper had the same color suit as Mike and even had green Chuck Taylor shoes.  Instead of the groomsmen having boutonnieres, they had Dia de los Muertos skull pins…pretty cool.
