TERRACE ON GRAND KC WEDDING
Oh my goodness! I could NOT have asked for a more perfect and amazing couple to start off 2017!!!! Blake and Lauren are such an awesome couple and so much fun to be around! My 2nd photographer, Sara and I had an absolute BLAST with these two and their amazing wedding party! The day started off with rain, but cleared up after we arrived when they were getting ready and we lucked out with some amazing weather! It was such a blessing to witness Blake and Lauren’s love through the lens. These two can’t get enough of one another and it was so much fun to witness such a special relationship and capture it on their special wedding day! Thank you SO very much Blake and Lauren for choosing Sharaya Mauck Photography to be your Kansas City Wedding Photographer! What a perfect day! ENJOY!!!
“Our wedding was an absolute dream. Everything was made to be very “us”, yet classic. Not everything that day went perfectly, but everything turned out to be absolutely perfect. I got to marry my best friend with so many of our close friends and family. Every time that we looked around during the reception, there was so much laughter and love. It was such a special day.”
AHH! I just LOVE 1st looks! How sweet are they!?!
“Our first look was really special. Blake looked so handsome. It was really nice for us to be able to have a bit of quiet time before more fun chaos. Another really special part of the day was my father’s speech at our reception. I was able to hold off tears for most of the day, but I didn’t stand a chance at that point in the night. I have been blessed with two wonderful men in my life!” You two are SO adorable! Love this! Awesome couple and an amazing city view, ahh! These are some of my faves! Such a FUN group!!! Another Favorite!
“Our wedding party was an absolute blast. Still two weeks later, Blake and I will still get calls from them to remind us and laugh with us about fun little moments that day.” “During our ceremony, our pastor asked us to take a second to look around the room at our family and friends. Everyone that we had talked to prior to wedding day has said that the day goes by in such a blur, but we were really able to take a second to take it all in. Several of our guests came up to us later that night and in the days following to tell us know nice that was as well.”
“We were sure to choose vendors that really meshed well with our own personalities, and we wouldn’t have changed a single person on that special day. I say go with your gut and take lots of deep breaths. It really is true that what matters that day is getting to marry your best friend.”
“Blake and I wanted a classic, timeless wedding. We continued to steer towards black, white, and gold when first planning, so those three colors really turned into our palette and continued to drive our planning. We were so happy with our choices!”
“At the end of the night, our (fantastic) DJ suggested that we choose one song to dance to while our guests prepared the sparklers outside, in order to close our night and really have a quiet moment together. I am SO glad that we did this. We chose to dance to Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” and every time that we hear the song now, we think of that special dance. It was such a wonderful idea, and I’m so thankful that we did it.”
