October Black Tie Wedding Sneak Peek


Chloe and John-Michael are finally, finally married friends!! 

A candid black and white picture taken during a wedding ceremony of a bride in a long veil laughing and looking towards the camera as a groom in a black tuxedo laughs and looks at the bride as they get ready to pour sand into their unity jar during an black tie October wedding in Kansas City.

These lovebirds got engaged waaaay back in 2019, and immediately started planning the ultimate 2020 New Year’s Eve wedding. Well, you know what happened then, friends. Chloe and John-Michael reschedule their wedding day, and got started re-planning the most perfect October black tie wedding at The Madrid. Which is exactly what their wedding day was. 🙂 

Chloe and John-Michael met way back in pharmacy school. They got to be friends, and eventually started working at the same pharmaceutical sales company. Chloe found herself constantly visiting her friend at work, who just so happened to sit close to John-Michael, hoping he would be at his desk. As it turns out, she had a crush on the tall, handsome, geeky boy in the office. 

But when John-Michael asked her out on a date? Chloe said no. At least twice before she said yes. 🙂 (I feel ya girl – timing is everything!)

And when she finally said yes to that date? She knew it was because she was finally ready to date the man that she was going to marry, not just date a guy to date. Fast forward a little bit, and John-Michael was ready to propose to Chloe. He worked so hard on making sure that everything was perfect, on “memorizing” exactly what he wanted to say to the woman of his dreams to make sure that she said yes. When the big moment finally arrived? John-Michael forgot everything that he wanted to say to Chloe. 

Lucky for him, she was crazy enough about him to say yes anyway. 

On Saturday during their wedding ceremony, Chloe and John-Michael chose to write their own vows. You better believe that John-Michael wrote down everything he wanted to remember to say to Chloe, and he even included everything that he wanted to say to her when she proposed. 

Family and friends – we know just how excited you are to see more from Chloe and John-Michael’s big day! Feel free to pre-register to see their full gallery as soon as it’s released in just a few short weeks!
