Intimate Summer Wedding Sneak Peek


What a wonderful Labor Day Weekend, guys. We were lucky enough to get to spend it with some of the BEST people ever. AND we got to photograph not one, but two weddings. So it’s definitely time to celebrate. Because Rebecca and Tristan are married! Again!!!

Wait. What?! AGAIN??

Yep. You totally read that right. You see, Rebecca and Tristan have such a lovely, romantic story. They actually met in San Francisco, where Rebecca lived and where Tristan was happened to be on vacation. Rebecca spilled a beer on Tristan, and it was all over from there. After a few years of doing the long-distance thing, Rebecca hopped the pond to move to England with Tristan.

When Tristan proposed to Rebecca, they knew they wanted to have all of their family and friends at their wedding. The trick, however, was that they have family and friends in both London AND the US. So these two lovebirds dove head first into wedding planning and decided to get married in New York.

Well, as you can imagine, not all of their family and friends were able to make it. So last year, they had a second wedding in London, so that all of Tristan’s family (and now Rebecca’s) and friends could make it. Fantastic, right?

Here’s the thing, friends.

Growing up, Rebecca spent A LOT of time with her sweet grandma in downtown Overland Park. And unfortunately enough, her grandma wasn’t well enough to travel for either of Rebecca’s weddings. Rebecca and Tristan knew they would be visiting family in the US this summer, and what started as a joke, turned into reality.

Yep, you guessed it. These two sweethearts had a third wedding, just so grandma could be there. And if we’re being 100% honest? We’re so glad they did, because it was the best day ever. Despite the fact that they’d already gotten married twice, Rebecca and Tristan wanted to do it all again.

Everything from a first look (you guys, just wait!), to portraits around Overland Park in places that were special to Rebecca, to a super sweet, intimate, backyard ceremony. Rebecca got to wear her custom wedding gown again – who gets to wear their wedding dress three times?!

And because Tristan loves everything Kansas and Midwest, they decided to fully embrace a rustic, Kansas theme. Which meant that Tristan got to wear his beloved cowboy boots and hat all day long. They got to have BBQ for dinner, and danced in the backyard as the sun was going down.

It was literally, the best day ever.

But the very, VERY best part? Rebecca’s grandma got to see her sweet granddaughter get married. And that’s all that really matters. 🙂

Friends and family – we’re sure you’re so excited to see Rebecca and Tristan’s photos! We are SO EXCITED to share more with you so soon! Feel free to go ahead and pre-register to see their full gallery as soon as it’s released in just a few weeks!
