Jen + Carlos | Wedding Day in Dodge City, KS

Ryan and I made the long journey from St. Louis through Missouri, into the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas and finally arrived in Dodge City, Kansas 10 hours later. There’s quite a bit of Mexican and Southwest influence, and we couldn’t wait for our first margarita!:)I really had no idea Dodge City would be such a cool place to photograph a wedding! Although I have to admit, I was expecting to photograph this group in fabulous wide open fields of wheat, cows and cool, old dilapidated windmills – but that was not the case! Instead, after the wedding, we hopped on a bright green trolley to have some fun within the city! The night before, Ryan and I found a beautiful historic building with tons of character ….. apparently it was the old firehouse. We knew this would be the perfect place to photograph the happy couple and their entourage.

This was the first time we have had the opportunity to see a few of the Mexican wedding traditions! It was so neat – the giving of the coins and the lassoing of the bride and groom, with what looked to be a long beaded cross during the ceremony. And of course, a mariachi band clad in their authentic costumes at the reception! We were in heaven with all the neat opportunities to document. I also thought it was pretty neat that Jen’s dad was the pastor of the church where they were married. Both families were so welcoming and it was truly an honor to photograph these high-school sweethearts and their special friends and family. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your BIG day – we enjoyed it!

Of course, I always have the hardest time choosing my favorites! If you would like to check out more, please visit our site!

Enjoy!
