Mary and Scott were married on June 9th at Our Lady of Sorrows at 31st and Gilham Road. Mary takes her Boards next week for both MD and DO and is a student at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences here in Northeast. Scott is a former Marine, Iraq War veteran and currently a member of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department working out of Metro.
The day began at the Bride's Uncle's house where the family got ready. Her colors were gorgeous.
Next stop was at the church to do family pictures with the Groom's side and, of course, the full Mass. A beautiful string quartet provided music in addition to the great organ they have there.
After Mass some posed pictures inside and outside the church and then off to Kauffman Gardens.
The wedding party was a great group of individuals... family and friends.
The bride and groom received close to 900 shots along with the rights. We also shot video all day and that has been edited into a 2 1/2 hour DVD......two Sony cameras were used, one stationary in the church balcony and one hand held throughout the day by my excellent helper Leslie.
Rama Sola made the cake. Rama and I went all through school together starting with kindergarten at Gladstone.
The Ballroom at the Embassy Suites KCI was elegantly decorated with drapes. The use of LED lights allowed the changing of colors throughout the evening and even in time with the music.
Above, cocktail hour from 6-7pm... before the grand march, first dance, cake cutting, and plated dinner.
It was a beautiful presentation in the hall.

Above and below.... the garter was equally contested.
All shots taken with either the Nikon D3 (ceremony shots) or the D800.. all remaining. ISO set on AUTO. File type varied depending on what I was shooting... RAW for posed shots and jpegs for the rest. Jpegs were shot in Nikon Portrait mode.
