President Hotel Summer Wedding Sneak Peek


Friends, Irene and Mitch have been waiting years for this post. And we mean years. After meeting in med school, becoming friends, then dating, and finally getting engaged, they got to start planning the wedding of their dreams right here in Kansas City. When Covid hit, these doctors, with a guest-list full of med school friends and additional doctors, decided to postpone their wedding because it was the smart, safe thing to do.

And then life happened. 

Irene and Mitch found out they were going to have a baby. A sweet baby girl, that they would name Lily, and love like crazy. The only catch? Lily’s due date was within weeks of their new wedding date. And so they postponed the best day ever again to this last weekend. Believe us when we say, these two, their friends, family, and sweet baby girl were so incredibly ready to celebrate all dang day long. 

Irene and Mitch’s wedding day had so, so many special moments. So, so many happy tears, euphoric shouts of joy, big bear hugs, and was full of so much love. We can’t wait to tell you about it in their full wedding day post. 

But, until then. 

Friends and family – we’re pretty sure we can guess just how excited you are to see Irene and Mitch’s wedding pictures. We know you were snapping away all day long too, but if you want to see their full gallery when we release it in just a few short weeks, feel free to pre-register here.
