So let me tell you about this amazing reception at Boulevard Brewery that I had the pleasure of photographing over the weekend.
I had the pleasure of meeting Jaci about a year ago at her venue, The Yellow Barn. This young, awesome woman is the owner of a beautiful venue in Olathe. I was so excited when she asked me to photograph her reception at the Boulevard Brewery.
Jaci and Matt were married a few weeks ago in Cancun. Besides the fact that I’m super pissed I was not invited to join them on their vacation (kidding, kind of), I was honored to have the chance to photograph this celebration with all their family and friends. Jaci even got dressed back up in her wedding attire and looked gorgeous as always.
My favorite part of the reception was the scavenger hunt game. The wedding party competed to raise money for Midwest Boxer Rescue. It was definitely an interesting twist to the traditional wedding reception. Jaci also took a few minutes to dedicate a song to their late dog Sunday. Sunday unfortunately passed away due to cancer a year ago, so she gave an emotional speech followed by dancing to Sunday’s song. Sunday was named after a Jessica Simpson song. She even told Matt he will always be her Sunday. It was seriously one of the sweetest moments I have ever witnessed. I consider myself pretty tough when it comes to weddings. I rarely tear up, but Jaci really had me going.
Thank you again so much for letting me be part of your incredible day!
