Circle S Ranch Kansas Wedding

Sarah + Clay’s Circle S Ranch Kansas Wedding

Sarah + Clay met at Texas A&M University, went to a chili fest, that was more of a beer fest, had an awkward conversation about toes (Clay!) and somewhere along the way fell in love.  What made their wedding so special is that it was truly a tribute to their personal love story.  During a beautifully intimate ceremony they invited everyone present along on that journey as their story was recounted from meeting to the present.  It’s no surprise that all of the highlights of their relationship became an integral part of the celebration.  We absolutely love when a couple make the biggest day of their lives about the moments and people that led them there.  Sarah and Clay, thank you for trusting us to tell your story and to capture the moments that will help you to tell it over and over again.

Huge hug and congrats!!  XX Melanie + Rick

Sorry longhorns, you are not invited.  This is a Texas A&M crowd!

We loved the understated, natural look of Sarah’s bouquet with just a subtle amount of color from lavenders and muted purples.

How perfect are these mixed styles and purple tones for the girl’s bridesmaid dresses?

What a great wedding day use for pictures from their engagement session in Shawnee Lake…a guest book!

Aren’t these invitations so creative? Katy, one of Sarah’s bridesmaids designed them! Now that’s some serious squad goals!

Sarah+ Clay had a beautiful outdoor ceremony near a creek where they shared their own vows.  A friend officiated and shared the delightful (and humorous) story of how they met and fell in love.

Favorite part of the day:

Clay – The ceremony.  The weather and the sunlight were perfect.  Sarah looked beautiful.  The music was great, the vows were great, everything was perfect.  It was better than I had imagined in my mind.  I’ll never forget it.

Sarah – The ceremony.  I really enjoyed sharing our love story with our friends and family.  It really felt personal and “like us”.  Including our beer was a must.  The weather lucked out too!

They toasted their nuptials with beers from their home states and did their special toast.  (I mean, how cute are these two?)

Why number your tables when you can name them after cool local bars from your college town?!  Super fun idea guys!

Sarah + Clay entered with the same music that the Texas A&M University (TAMU) football team uses to come in, along with a stuffed reville, the TAMU mascot.

How cute is this custom cake topper of these two in their TAMU jerseys with their cat Nala?!

Can’t close out the night without without singing the Texas A&M anthem…everybody now!

What a fabulous couple, what a wonderful night.

A very special thanks to an amazingly talented team that helped make this wedding absolutely fantastic!
