With Emilie & Dane, the phrase "opposites attract" is so wonderfully true. Emilie has a quiet strength about her & Dane is charming & comedic. These two compliment each other in the best ways. 

Emilie & Dane got married at The Bauer, my favorite Kansas City wedding venue. Both Emilie & Dane were calm, cool, & collected as they got ready for their first look. As Emilie walked down the infamous Bauer alleyway in her absolutely stunning wedding dress to meet her groom, Dane was anxious to see his bride.

Confession: I love when grooms get emotional, so it THRILLED me to see Dane tearing up at his first sight of Emilie on their wedding day. Oh, the love! We walked around the block snapping some sweet pictures while these two enjoyed each others' company just hours before they would become husband & wife. 

Dane got teary-eyed again as he saw his bride walking down the aisle towards him. They vowed to love each other forever, took communion, & began their sweet marriage in the presence of everyone they love most. Following the ceremony, we snuck away for a private moment that produced some of my favorite pictures we've ever taken.

Emily & Dane's reception involved lots of sweet treats (I think pregnant me ate about twenty donut holes), hilarious toasts, some dancing, & a delicious dinner. We loved this day. We love these people & this venue. We love the love they share, the chemistry they have, & the way they compliment each other.
