This day was all about personal touches, historical details, and celebrating family. Aleigh and Paul thought of everything. Their one-year-old son, Joey (who is the cutest!) was wearing an outfit that belonged to Paul when he was a baby. They got married in the church where (I think) 7 other couples on Paul's side of the family have gotten married -- what a tradition! Their reception had a Beatles cover band, because Aleigh LOVES the Beatles! They served pie from Rye (the groom's side family favorite dessert) and Betty Rae's ice cream (a favorite of Aleigh's late grandfather). To honor their wedding location at Loose Mansion and the Kansas City history that comes with it, all of their guests were given "lucky pennies" (Loose made investments in copper) and Hydrox cookies at the end of the night (Loose invented them).
Special thank you to my second shooter Jamie Montalto for her amazing work on this day. Some of her images are below. My favorites are the view from the back of the church as Aleigh, her mom, and Joey entered the ceremony!
