Kristen and Jake | A KKP Associate Wedding

Sentimental Wedding Full of Family Heirlooms at All White Wedding Venue, Excello, MO.

Photographed by Hillary, my lovely KKP associate wedding photographer!

Sitting in the corner of a quiet room filled with light, Kristen daintily opened a letter written by her husband-to-be. She smiled sweetly as she read every word he had typed. Her mother’s wedding gown, as well as her grandmother’s wedding gown, were looking on at this tender moment. She soon laughed and fought back tears as she opened up his gift: a Kendra Scott bracelet that she could wear on the happiest day of her life. Jake was just outside under the shaded deck of the venue doing the same - reading a letter that Kristen had hand-scripted for him. He opened up her gift that was simply engraved with the utmost sincerity, “Love you more.”
This is Mr. and Mrs. Rogers.


  • Kristen and Jake kept with tradition and did not see one another on their wedding day until she walked down the aisle, but that didn’t keep Kristen from sharing a joyous and tear-filled first look with her father on the deck overlooking the lake!

  • Kristen and Jake are a couple full of sentiment, and we love that! Kristen ensure that her mother and grandmother’s wedding rings were included in her bag of bridal details to be photographed on the morning of her wedding day. Her mother and grandmother’s wedding dresses were proudly displayed in the foyer for their guests to view that evening. What’s more, Kristen and Jake made sure that their bartenders for the evening were the same bartenders that served the drinks on their first date!

  • The newlyweds celebrated their first kiss as husband and wife by including all of their guests in a fun confetti pop (and subsequently we are loving the festivity in their portraits!).

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Rogers! Bless your marriage!
