Sarah and Stu’s wedding this summer at Lone Summit Ranch in Kansas City was such a beautiful day! Leading up to the wedding day, there was a high chance of rain and we were prepared that we might not end up with a ton of time for portraits outside, the ceremony could be moved, and a lot of the plans were up in the air, depending on the rain situation. However, when we arrived, everyone was still in high spirits and they didn’t let it change one bit of their excitement! Everyone was just so excited for Sarah and Stu to be getting married that they didn’t let any of the weather stress get to them at all. We brought a whole backseat full of clear umbrellas (just an extra precaution that we always bring along to wedding days, just in case!) that we had ready at a moment’s notice and we were just excited to capture the day however it played out! Throughout the day, we kept waiting for the rain to start falling, but it didn’t happen! The clouds faded in and out all day and the skies got really dark right before the ceremony, but the rain still held off until mid-reception, which was a huge answer to prayer!
Sarah and Stu had a stunning outdoor ceremony (Lone Summit Ranch has a gorgeous lawn that is perfect for ceremonies, right under the canopy of a beautiful tree!), with gorgeous florals and details carefully placed around the area. The clouds were a little menacing during the ceremony, but the rain held off for the perfect amount of time so that they could still have the outdoor ceremony that they had planned. One of our favorite parts of the ceremony to witness was when Sarah and Stu had a section of their ceremony dedicated to worship. It was so beautiful to watch them sing and worship the Lord during their ceremony with all of their loved ones standing around them and joining in as well!
Sarah and Stu are one of those couples that just immediately make you feel so loved and welcome the moment you meet them. And their wedding day was no exception! Their guests were truly their top priority throughout the day, even despite it being their own wedding day! They went to all lengths to ensure that their guests were comfortable, had an amazing time, and were served well during the celebration. It really spoke so much to Sarah and Stu’s hearts for loving people well that they made this such a priority on their wedding day and it was incredible to witness! We absolutely loved working with Sarah and Stu and capturing their big day at Lone Summit Ranch!
