Congrats Jay and Kayla! I have so much to say about these two, they are an amazing couple. Jay contacted me last year when he was planning on proposing to Kayla. This wasn’t your normal proposal, he proposed mid-flight when Kayla thought their plane was having engine failure. To see more of this story click here . She is one brave women! After she said yes, they started planning a one of a kind wedding in Jefferson City, Missouri.
Jay and Kayla both work at the Capitol and they were given the exclusive privilege to get married in the Senate Mezzanine. The Mezzanine looks over the floor of the Senate and is framed by large marble columns. They are the first couple to get married in Mezzanine and possibly the last. After their ceremony, guests gathered at The Millbottom for the reception. Jay and Kayla were also one of the first couples to hold their reception at this new swanky event space in Jefferson City. I was so excited to photograph at this location; I do love some exposed brick. Guests enjoyed toasts and dinner before the official party started. Jay and Kayla opted to have dueling pianos for their entertainment that evening, it was a fun night for all!
Thank you for allowing Nick and I to document your beautiful wedding day! Wishing you a life full of happiness and many years, cheers!
