Brandon & Elizabeth’s Charming Springtime Wedding

When this sweet pair—Elizabeth and Brandon—first met in 2012, they instantly kicked off their friendship and spent a few years growing their relationship together. And, just this past May, they tied the knot at the stunning church Elizabeth grew up going to.

From delicate spring blossoms to must-have Kansas City BBQ, and even a donut and coffee station, Elizabeth and Brandon threw a charming celebration at the Leawood City Hall Community Center while surrounded by loving family, friends, and all of their favorite things.

So, it’s obvious we were thrilled and thankful to have been a part of their day! And, of course we’re oh so excited to finally reminisce on this springtime wedding with a recap from none other than the bride herself.

Many thanks goes out to Kaye Ness Photography for sharing some of these special moments with us.
