The Colonnade Engagement | Cortney + Josh

May 19, 2021

No one wants rain on their wedding day. Engagement sessions, on the other hand, can either be an opportunity to reschedule or to have some fun. Cortney and Josh chose the latter option with their Kansas City Colonnade Engagement session.

While these two have been married for almost a year, they only have two months until they get to celebrate with friends and family. That didn’t give us much time to reschedule, so when rain was shown in the forecast, we decided to move to The Colonnade so we could still have the session without being completely soaked.

If you know me, you know I love the rain so it shouldn’t be a shock that I was all for this rainy engagement session. Cortney was a little hesitant and I loved the shocked look on their faces when I chose to stand out in the rain for the majority of the session instead of also taking cover.

Even though this engagement session wasn’t what they were picturing, these two were troopers. Toward the end of the session, they agreed to drop the umbrella to play in the rain. We may have been completely soaked by the end, but it was totally worth it.

Cortney and Josh are so adorable together. At the beginning of the session, I asked Josh if he is good at making her laugh on the spot and he replied with, nah I got this. He chose to not use my prompts and still delivered the same laughter I strive for at every session.

A lot of prompts involve staring at each other and I asked them if they are sick of staring at each other yet. They replied with, “no never.” You know it’s meant to be when you can stare deep into each other’s eyes for long periods of time without feeling awkward.

Thank you so much Cortney and Josh for having a beautiful rainy Colonnade engagement session. Here’s your preview! More to come shortly!

Hear from the couple –

How did he propose?

He proposed at the fountain formerly known as JC Nichols fountain one Sunday evening. The fountain itself came from Long Island, where Cortney grew up. Since our families aren’t in town, we then went home for celebratory champagne and phone calls to our families.

Question for the bride: what do you love most about him?

I love the way he makes me laugh and supports me.

Question for the groom: what do you love most about her?

He loves how smart and funny she is.

What’s your favorite part about wedding planning?

The first time it was all fun, going to bridal shows was lots of fun. The second time around, it’s a little bit less fun to re-plan.

What are you looking forward to most about your big day?

Since we had a “small day” in 2020 and given the year it has been, we are really looking forward to seeing friends and family and hopefully having a mostly normal party!
