plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

I love how the images below really capture so much of the bride and groom. There are some beautiful detail shots, of the bride’s dress and bouquet, the adorable cupcakes, and the pops of color on the tables, but the photos of Carolyn and Bryan around Bryan’s family property are just stunning. And then there’s the groom serenading his bride during the reception, and I’m just done. So wonderful.


From the Photographer:

The couple currently lives in the Washington DC area and traveled home to Lawrence, Kansas for their wedding. The groom’s father is the late Dr. Bob Frederick who played and coached basketball at the University of Kansas and served as athletic director for 14 years. The morning of the wedding the groom ran in the 5K Dr. Bob run. The wedding ceremony was held at the Danforth chapel and the reception was at the Adams Alumni Center, both on the University of Kansas campus. The mothers of the bride and groom helped in the planning of the wedding since the couple lives in DC. The weather on the day was actually quite chilly, barely making the 50′s, but the bride and groom were excited for outdoor pictures and the groom’s family home. Much of the home and rock walls were constructed by the late Bob Frederick.

This wedding is vintage. This wedding is retro. This wedding is full of life, love and plenty of DIY. The bride and her family did all of the decorations themselves… all of them. (Did you see that burlap monogram!) What’s even more special and unique about this wedding is that Meghann & Clark’s guests participated in the traditional dollar dance, but this wasn’t just any dollar dance. Their dollar dance was a fundraiser for the orphanage the couple volunteered at in Uganda this past year. Talk about adding a personalized touch to your wedding day… amazing.

Did someone say color?

Weddings with bright bold color tend to land at the top of my list. I love when a couple just goes for it, using color in every opportunity – from clothing and accessories to flowers, lighting and linens. I mean, I love a classic white on white look, but color speaks to me. Camille and Jeremy used ABODE’s beautiful urban space as the canvas to pop blues and pinks against. So colorful and fun.

Oh, and how could I forget the ceremony in-the-round. Genius idea for ensuring your guests can all see, and to create a more intimate setting.
