An Intimate Kansas City Wedding by the River // Ashley + Joe

A wooded trail lined with bright fuchsia flowers lead their guests to the ceremony site. A site that held a whole lot of meaning, beautiful no doubt, but for Ashley and Joe this spot was so much more than that. An intimate wooded area full of giant lush and whispering trees on a sunny day in May is the spot they stood in - hand in hand - by the river. This spot known as the confluence of where the Missouri River and the Kansas River come together, it just made sense ya see - for Ashley, a Kansas girl, and Joe, a Missouri guy - this too would be the spot they would come together, and there they promised forever.

With multi-page handwritten vows, they took their time, they said their words, made their promises, and in between each page flip - their hands reached again and again for one another. Their dear friend announced it as official, they were husband and wife and a contagious joy spread quickly across both of their faces like a wildfire. As guests cleared out it came down to the two of them, that special spot they were in, those whispering trees all around, golden evening sun and that united river by their side. 

These two had one heck of a beautiful wedding day and their love story really tops the charts on the definition of beautiful!! 

When a trail like this leads to where you get know it's going to be INCREDIBLE!

The amazing team behind this perfect day!
