Congratulations to Marion & Justin, two lovebirds that are the epitome of relaxed and fun-loving! How relaxed are these two? Marion wore custom purple Chucks with her tea-length wedding gown, so you tell me :) But seriously, they are so great!
Marion & Justin first met in college as physics lab partners. Marion will tell you honestly that Justin was the superior partner (she routinely copied his work). You can just tell that that experience forever bonded them and prepared them for a lifetime together. Since those days in the lab, they've built a beautiful relation spanning two states and full of room for laughter, love, growth, and inside jokes.
The two are new-ish to the Kansas City area, having moved here after college from Louisville, Kentucky. Justin actually proposed to Marion on the waterfront in Louisville, the site of their first date!
On Marion & Justin’s wedding day, we had typical KC weather that couldn’t decide if it wanted to be warm and sunny, or windy and rainy. Thankfully, we were able to take most of our photos inside the Uptown Theater’s beautiful Broadway Room. From there, we headed to Union Station for Marion & Justin’s first look and wedding party photos. Being new-ish to Kansas City, Marion & Justin had never been to Union Station so this was a fun treat for them!
After wedding party photos, we headed back to the Uptown for some last minute R&R and touch-ups before the big event. A dear friend of the couple officiated the ceremony, which included vows written by the couple and a special ceremonial love knot. After the ceremony, it was time for dinner and dancing the night away! Just before I left the party, I pulled Marion & Justin away for some quick photos outside the theater under their marquee. It was the perfect end to their perfect day :)
A HUGE thank you to the team that made this day extra special!
