Robert + Vercella Three Part Wedding by Royal Photography

A few weekends ago Robert and Vercella - well known Kansas City residents - made their love connection official. Their wedding events were not your typical schedule of events. All the events were spread across three separate weekends. Vercella, a diva in her own right and Robert, the cool dapper gent had their official wedding ceremony in Lawrence, KS in late June. In early August there was a "sand ceremony" at their home where both sets of children - including grand children partook in a sentimental sand ceremony. The following day is when the celebration kicked off. Family, friends and distinguished guests witnessed a good ole fashion party.
Congratulations Robert and Vercella!

You Can't Put a Price on Wedding Bliss


Will + Carolyn Exhilarating Wedding by Royal Photography, LLC

When I met Carolyn she immediately told me that she chose our photography services because she like the images on our website but most importantly, she loved the candid images displayed. I didn't meet Will until the day of the wedding but after my initial consultation with her, she described him to the "T". Courtney and I had a blast photographing their wedding and the wedding party was the absolute the BEST! Both sides of the family and wedding party kept me laughing so hard it was hard to stay focus on the job at hand. Don't get me wrong - I loved it. If I can have fun at what I love doing best, what else is the to complain about? The bridesmaids dresses were sleek, sexy, and original. The ladies all wore different black dresses but yet the same 4-inch stiletto. The men's ties complimented the ladies shoes. Both Will and Carolyn went to high school together and share similar interests. Before the ceremony, we visited a few locations they share together while dating - one of them being Mission Bowl. Who would of thought a bride in full wedding gown and heels could bowl a "strike" on the first attempt? What I learned during the reception from family and friends - never doubt or under estimate Carolyn. When she sets her mind to something, it will come into fruition. The other highlight of the reception were the bride/groom cupcakes. They were gourmet designed and were the cupcakes I've ever had. Eating one would make a person lose a tooth - they were that sweet and delicious.

I got a really good vibe from both of them and can only believe their love for each other can't be broken.

Some of the wedding details:

Ceremony: St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church
Reception: Homestead Country Club
DJ: Marc O'Leary Entertainment
Transportation: Custom Limousine, Inc.

I went a bit overboard on the photos so bear with me.
